Cornwall Living 2018

Beach chic

Capture your coastal style with help from The Cornwall Tile Company, Newquay.

Coastal interiors are a firm favourite among homeowners and designers. This refreshing style reminds us of that carefree holiday atmosphere, with long lazy days, sand, sea and surf at our doorstep! Coastal design is about recreating this relaxed feeling within your home.

Tiles play an important role in interior design, setting the look and feel of the home. Whether it be the floors which you walk barefoot or the statement feature in your shower, tiles offer a broad choice of textures, materials, finishes and colours. Imagine a peaceful seaside scene, with relaxing ocean blues and calming whites, soft sandy beiges to vibrant beach towel hues.

The Cornish coast boasts its own unique quality of light, and a high gloss or glass tile is a great way to capture this. The reflective, shiny surfaces bounce light around your rooms. White tiles are the most popular choice for coastal interiors, as they spread and intensify light rather than absorbing it.

Coastal living is also about making the most of the great outdoors, so why not take influence from natural materials in your home? The calming look of natural stone tiles will bring a spa like tranquillity, while the rustic finish of a wood effect tile will channel beach hut chic. Picture weather-beaten driftwood or distressed painted planks for your floor or walls.

The Cornwall Tile Company Newquay is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for a special touch of coastal class, with a 20-year background in the tile trade and ample experience in transforming luxury beachside homes.

Take, for example, recent project Tamarisk (pictured), a luxury family beach house nestled in the beautiful location of Mawgan Porth. The clever use of tiles has given the owners the fresh, bright and energising aura of life on the beach.

The Cornwall Tile Company team believes in style over trend, offering a comprehensive range of tiles to suit all tastes and interiors, with many coastal designs to choose from. Wander around the extensive showroom, getting inspiration from the easy-view displays. Here, you’ll find friendly and knowledgeable staff with all the expert advice you need on both choice and installation.

The Cornwall Tile Company can take care of it all with a measuring and design service, installing your tiles to the highest standard. With owner Simon Paull himself supplying and installing tiles into the highest end homes for over a decade,
you know you’re in safe hands.
