Resin effect tiles realistically mimic the smooth and soft look of resin and bring a modern touch to spaces often creating a minimalist or industrial type of feel.

Variety of colours and style

Resin and resin effect tiles are also no longer limited to just plain styles, they are available in a range of stunning decorative patterns and finishes, for example the Milano Mood collection includes fashionable extra matt surfaces and an original repertoire of decorations with brilliant reliefs.

Furthermore, resin effect tiles provide interesting plays of light, highlighting the contrast between polished and matte surfaces.  This allows them to enhance any space, complementing and enhancing existing décor.  

When it comes to flooring options, there are many different colours and shades available from pristine whites, beige and ecru to warmer shades such as taupe and dark grey.  Lighter colours such as white, beige or light grey make rooms look bigger whilst the darker colours make a space more intimate and can add character and drama to the area.
