Tiles for a Mid Century Modern look
Mid Century Modern is an iconic look that spans the middle of the last century – the 1930s to the early 1960s. You may be more familiar with the distinctive furniture and characterful light fixtures but it’s important that your surfaces help create the authentic look.
Create atmosphere with wooden floors
One of the best ways to achieve a mid century modern interior is combining natural textures and exposed structural elements.
Using wood look tiles is the perfect solution on the floor in kitchens, living areas and bathrooms.
They offer all the benefits of porcelain tile – incredible durability, low maintenance and ability to use underfloor heating – but have been crafted with incredible precision. We challenge you to tell the difference with an engineered wood floor!
Achieving an exposed brick look anywhere

One of the best ways to help achieve this look is to leave a wall exposed.
If you have a brick wall that’s suitable, consider leaving it bare.
Otherwise you could use brick slips on the wall to create contrast with wood effect tiles on the floor.
These tiles can be used in both small and large areas and offer the benefits of a glazed tile to use in areas like bathrooms where exposed brick is difficult to safely achieve.
Split face and stone brick tiles
Another option to create a natural texture on walls is to use a split face stone look tile. This can help recreate some of the textures you would find in a mid century lodge or country cottage.
