If you're looking for ideas for your wall and floor spaces, one surface trend immediately springs to mind - marble! The idea of 'bringing the outdoors in' and creating a natural scheme in your home have been popular for a while now - but marble is by far the hottest and most desired stone. It's characterful veining instantly adds timeless personality to an interior space. There's something about marble that just adds an instant grandness to a wall or floor space - probably because marble has been used in palaces and castles for thousands of years.
One problem with natural marble is that it's costly. Another is that it requires treatment and maintenance and that it stains and marks fairly easily - like all natural stones. That's where marble effect tiles come in handy. They're a durable alternative to natural marble, and they cost a fraction of the price!
