Blue Floor Tiles – Back on Trend?

It seems that you are not alone if you are fed up with only finding cream and beige floor tiles offered by your local tile shop. We have noticed a peak in interest for our blue floor tiles, so can it be that times they are a changing?

Blue Floor Tiles – Suggestions

Creative Tiles and Laminates popular blue floor tiles are: Blue Slate with a textured finish and blue-grey colour and Galileo Blue a smoother finish tile with slight veining and an indigo blue hue. Both these porcelain blue floor tiles are suitable for use on a bathroom or kitchen floor, utility or such like.

Over the years, fashions have changed in both wall & floor tiles for a bathroom, not only in the size of tiles used but also the colours and finishes. In Europe today, customers still demand coloured tiles – in blue, green, red, purple & orange, whereas UK customers turned their backs on colours years ago and look to a neutral or natural coloured tile scheme for inspiration. The benefit of which allows you to change the accent colour on a whim using different accessories; towels, soaps, candles, flower arrangements, blinds, glassware & plant pots etc. These we can change easily when we get fed up, tiles are another matter completely.

So, if blue floor tiles are seeing a resurgence…can it be that we will once again start using brightly coloured tiles once again in our bathrooms? I think perhaps it is the floors where this is most likely to happen. For one thing, this tends to be the smallest area in the bathroom plus floor tiles are easier to swap out if you fall out of favour with them or just fancy a change.

We might also see manufacturers increasing the colours used on tile decors, adding a bit of interest here and there but without being too dominant. Hopefully, I think the sanitaryware for now will remain white and the return of the olive, blue and pink suites are still some way off. But then again, what do I know?

    Unfortunately, the Blue Slate floor tile has now been discontinued by the manufacturer and we no longer have any stock available. The Galileo Blue floor tile however, is still available and a good choice for something that little bit different for your home.

  2. David Kehoe says:

    Do you have any outlets that sell your blue tiles in the United States?

    • Susan says:

      Hi David

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      I’m afraid we do not have any outlets in America.

      The Galileo Blue floor tiles are from a company called Nord Ceram. Please use their contact form to ask if there are any stockists of this product in the US. (Please note this product is now called Verona VER734).

      Good luck with your search.

      Best wishes

    Updating a 13 year old kitchen we find ourselves needing to add to the beautiful blue floor tiles we currently have down, only to be told by the company that supplied them that they are discontinued. Speaking to another local tile company they told us the same as your article, adding that many UK tile suppliers that made these tiles went out of business as customers went beige (bland!) and more imports came into the country.
    I would say you’re probably right with these coming back on trend, especially if people are doing the same as us. Would be great to see more choice available!

    Would it be possible to purchase a sample of your tile and if so how much would that cost? I am interested in the blue slate floor tile.
