Dense and solid, porcelain is a durable and hard-wearing product, that in recent years has greatly improved in terms of overall look and aesthetic appeal. Our collection includes six different looks ranging from concrete to wood effects. Porcelain is low maintenance and naturally stain and liquid resistant. The new on-trend tiles are offered in multiple sizes and colourways, and can be installed on floors and walls – inside and outdoors.

Advances in technology and modern production methods have guaranteed porcelain floor tiles a prominent position in today’s homeware market. The ever-increasing range of tasteful designs is just one example of the increasing popularity of this product, and the Indigenous porcelain tiling collection with its selection of urban, luxe and natural effects illustrates just how tantalising some of these options can be.
Porcelain tiles, on the other hand, are made from dense clay and have a hard, granite-like surface. They are baked at high temperatures, which makes them stain and scratch resistant, and with a water absorption rate which is below 0.5% they are also the perfect choice to guarantee excellent water resistance.
A low-maintenance option
Porcelain tiled flooring has acquired an easy-care reputation which is entirely justified. Other flooring can sometimes seem to forever demand attention – wood flooring can pick up marks and dents, laminate surfaces can be prone to warping in damp environments, and marble tiles will need to be well sealed to preserve their look. But porcelain tiles will cheerfully weather the usual spills and stains children and pets can produce with little more than some light attention from a brush, sponge or mop.
The same tile finish may not suit every context, and though some decorative interiors requiring a luxury floor may look great with polished tiles, for other areas such as a bathroom, a tile with a matte finish may be a far more practical option. And, as a further consideration, patios and some high-traffic areas may need a textured finish to provide a measure of non-slip protection.
Where the intended ambience is more elegant and sophisticated, something like a marble tile will replicate the visual appeal of Carrara marble, while stone tiles such as a timeless Jerusalem Limestone, or perhaps some wood effect porcelain floor tiles, will introduce the warm, calming influence of natural materials.
Some practical issues
All Indigenous porcelain tiles have a sharp, straight edge, which requires just a small grout joint and helps to achieve a more contemporary style. And here, choosing grout in a contrasting shade will highlight the joints and give prominence to the layout pattern itself. Conversely, using grout in a colour which matches the tiles will help create the desired seamless look for wall-and-floor tile designs and interior floors where a tile scheme cascades from room to room.
