Moroccan Style Tiles
Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, the landscape of Morocco is as diverse as it is beautiful, offering inspiration at every turn. The vibrancy and richness of this North African country has influenced truly unique and recognisable designs which unsurprisingly, have left many people keen to bring this opulent style into their own homes.
Zellige tiles are traditionally hand cut offering a slightvariation in size, synonymous with this look. The Journeyman collection and our Zellige Rustico ranges are designed to emulate this characteristic, and when installed with a tight joint, the real Zellige effect is perfectly achieved.
Our Marrakesh range of tiles delivers the bright, bold, and contrasting colour palettes that Moroccan design is known for. You can introduce the recognisable splashes of jewel colour using this stunning bejmat inspired tile range.
Here, Marrakesh Brick terracotta light and dark are combined with Brick Mint as an accent around the basin.
The perfect pallette for creating Med inspired schemes.
There are a range of decors and plain tiles within the Marrakesh collecton than can be paired together to create truly inspiring room schemes.
In this image we see Marrakesh Decor Dark and White, Brick White and Terracotta Brick Dark.
A lighter touch
The use of a taupe and white tiled floor offers a fesh alternative to the popular black and white. Use it to add personality to a smaller space.
A large scale black and white tile can add real drama to a setting. Here, a combination of traditional and contemporray elements combine to create a signature style in Kris Jenners' home.
Checkboard layouts look fabulous laid full floor, skirting to skirting and generally this will make a room look as large as it can when clad in this tile design. But in larger spaces the use of borders can help zone the space, adding visual interest and intimacy.
The general rule of thumb is the larger the space, the larger the tile should be when creating this style of design. That said don't over look smaller options when combining with border detailing.
It's all in the detail!
Please be aware - not all tiles advertised as the same size,arethe same size!! Tiles are subject to an acceptable tollerance in size (unless the tile is rectifed), so a tile from one supplier advertised as 20cm might be 198mm, or 202mm from another. As a result, we do not recommend combining tiles from different collections. Also, note that unless tiles are monocalibre like our 1860 Range, they are likely to be from a different batch - be aware that this can lead to your tiler may have to make up for the difference within the joint spacing. It sounds strange but it won't effect the finished look of the beautiful floor.
