Oh, the drama!

There are a few trends circulating for 2023 when it comes to styling your interiors, one of which we are particularly fond of is in-your-face, full-on drama. We love dramatic bathrooms, eye catching tiles, rooms and floors that are complete head-turners. It takes a brave person to be bold and they’re the kind of person we love to work with. Well, we love working with each and every one of our customers, but when the brief allows for some creativity, it gets even more exciting! 

Oh, the drama! Oh, the drama! Oh, the drama!

Dramatic feature walls add visual interest in a room, drawing the eye in and creating an engaging focal point. They are a way to personalise your home and reflect your tastes and style, as well as creating a sense of excitement. We are finding more frequently that our customers are interested in creating their own eye-catching, dramatic feature walls in their homes, especially bathrooms and kitchens. It is also sometimes a cost-effective way to have a bit of a revamp without breaking the budget. By simply re-tiling one wall with new dramatic tiles, the whole bathroom or kitchen can be given a new lease of life. Single wall, minimal spend, maximum impact!

Replacing small, traditional kitchen tiles with large format, statement tiles will certainly make the room feel more engaging and dynamic, and changes such as this are particularly effective in spaces where people entertain or gather. 

Below is a roundup of some of our most show stopping collections…


Our Onyx collection is the definition of dramatic. The bold colours, mesmerising patterns and striking designs immediately draw the eye towards it, making it the perfect choice for a spectacular feature in a room. You might liken the veining on these tiles as bolts of lightning or glass cracking, complete with translucent layers and areas of rich, warm colours. We hold these large format, 60x120cm glossy tiles in stock and there are 5 fabulous colours to choose from; Black, Blue, Green, Pink and Ivory, all with a matt or gloss finish. Maybe you could play it safe with Ivory or Black, but if you fancied being really brave then the Blue, Green or Pink could certainly do the trick!

What’s more exciting than big leaves, bright flowers and a jungle vibe? The Pigmento décor tile is part of the Eden Collection by Emil Group, it’s BOLD and it’s out there! This 60x120cm, leafy tile adds a vibrancy to a room and if we are completely honest, it’s a bit of a showstopper. The dense colours create a sense of personality to a space and the oversized leaves, with their juicy green hues, scream “Hey! Look at me!”. There’s no doubt about it that this tile isn’t for every household, but it is such a bold and daring look and it can look stunning when done right. By keeping the rest of the room light and bright, you can’t help but notice the magnificence of a feature wall in Pigmento. Lush green monstera and palm leaves, complete with pops of pink and orange from the blooms…what’s not too love?!

A newbie in our showroom and it is causing a bit of a stir to say the least! This metallic effect tile collections takes its inspiration from the everyday materials that surround us and oozes Industrialism. It’s a super modern, contemporary collection that creates a fuss-free kind of drama, in a very “what you see is what you get” kind of way. These 60x120cm tiles are like sheets of metal, with luxurious depth and warm tone, ideal for creating a sense of continuity in a room and perfect for getting that element of drama we so dearly love. Team these tiles with brass, copper or black fixtures and fittings or contrast against an alternative material such as wood effect or stone effect to create a statement. Rhodium is available in 4 colours; Aluminium, Brass, Iron and Steel, and it’s easy to see why these colours lend themselves to a contemporary setting.

Invisible White

A grand and stand-out marble effect tile could be the perfect way to add some drama and Invisible White by Imola could be the very tile that fits the bill. The crisp contrast between the grey veining and the brilliant white creates sleek and sophisticated finish – a look that is quite favourable right now. Invisible White is a superb tile for creating an eye-catching feature in a room and has proved to be a popular and versatile tile, being used on floors, on walls, in bathrooms and as kitchen splashbacks. It is stocked in both matt and polished finish and is 60x120cm in dimension.

Oh, the drama!

Coniston Leaf

Our Coniston collection is a stone effect range that has been inspired by earth and nature, with multiple sizes available (30x60cm, 60x60cm and 60x120cm) and a colour scheme to reflect those natural tones. The collection comes with a large format, striking décor tile going by the name ‘Leaf’. It is 60x120cm in size, so perfect for a feature wall or decorative panel in a room, maybe even a splash back in a kitchen if you are brave enough – we’d love something like this! We think this tile is subtly dramatic with it’s textured, sweeping and sculpted design and it’s just beautiful. Leaf Décor is available in Ivory and Shadow.

Oh, the drama!


An industrial styled décor tile with elements of geometrics to it, interlocking and intertwining, causing a scene from the minute you notice it! Solid Art is only 30x60cm in size but the impact it makes is so much bigger, making a statement with its varying shapes and sweeping textures. This decorative pattern is circular is style and has somewhat of a softness to it, but the design is bold, repetitive and edgy at the same time. It is elegant and interesting - sure to brighten up a bathroom and is a perfect choice for a feature wall. Solid has a more muted colour palette than some of the other tiles we have mentioned due to the fact it is a concrete effect collection so it bears realistic colours. It is available in 3 colours; Beige, Graphite and Pearl, perfect for adding some drama without being too over the top.

I cannot speak highly enough of Rees Tiles. True professionals with an eye for detail. From initial consultation along with help with choices and designs which fitted perfectly with our vision. This professionalism continued throughout or project, they really did go above and beyond and were available for advice no matter how small at all times! If you are looking for quality both in product and service, then look no further. Honestly, we love them!

Robert Mason, Quite Simply French

The team at Rees Tiles were super. They were really helpful when choosing our tiles for 3 rooms in our refurb.

We felt very confident when chatting to Holly and Steve about our ideas. They provided invaluable advice about all of the types of tiles we wanted. They were very friendly and gave us time to think about our ideas, even allowing us to bring in our kitchen cupboards to match the colours perfectly. Thank you!

Mrs Tillotson, Client

We recently undertook a self-build project and had both the bottom floor and all the bathrooms to tile. Steve was really helpful from the outset and just "got" what I was after straight away, picking out a selection of tiles that were all suitable. It meant that rather than taking ages to choose, I'd actually picked most of the options in my first visit - which is great when you have so many other decisions to make! Steve and the rest of the team were great throughout the whole process and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to others.

Melissa Woods, Self Build Customer

We are really happy with the service we get from Rees Tiles. Steve always responds to emails quickly, with a quick turnaround on quotes and great products supplied.

Sohailia Amini, Wrenman Homes

I have had the pleasure of dealing with the team at Rees Tiles over a number of years and have always found them to be knowledgeable and helpful, an all round first class service.

Harvey Bainbridge, Client

We find our relationship with Rees Tiles very professional and reliable. The fact that we can call to order stocked tiles and receive them to site the following morning is fantastic. It means that no job is held up and the turnaround for the end purchaser is smooth and quick.

Jonathan Willan, Site Manager at Halton Mills Ltd.

Looking for tiles for our bathroom, kitchen and extension floor was made easy by the fantastic displays and huge choice of tiles available at the Rees Tiles and Flooring showroom in Lancaster. Steven and Holly were very obliging, offering us their knowledgeable advice on finishes and grout colours, and also allowed us to take various samples home to try. Rees Tiles is the place to go for a wonderful selection of quality tiles with a helpful, friendly service.

Mrs Richardson-Hogg, Client

When we decided we wanted to update all the en-suites at The Sun Hotel we called into Rees Tiles and Flooring by chance and I am so thrilled we did. From start to finish the service was fantastic and we couldn’t have asked for more. Using Rees Tiles and Flooring made what could have been a stressful time so much easier. I’d be happy to recommend them to anybody who requires tiles.

Helen Henderson, The Sun at Troutbeck Bridge

Patient and Helpful with a Beautiful outcome! We were searching for the perfect shades and textures for the floor and bathrooms in our new home, which we finally found thanks to the expert and friendly team at Rees Tiles and Flooring. From start to finish they were wonderful, delivering tiles and underfloor heating when we needed it so the fixer could keep to the planned timescales. Great service and amazing products.

Mrs Wanless, Client

Steve and the team at Rees Tiles have been great in helping us choose what would work with the kitchen. They were really excited when we said we wanted to use large tiles in the kitchen, and this made us feel even more certain we’d made the right decision.

Mr Bower, Client

The team at Rees Tiles assisted me in matching up colours and explaining which would work best in my home. They worked alongside the people working on my house really well and I didn’t have to be involved which made it really stress-free for me – something which is appreciated when moving to a new house! I’m so pleased with my bathroom and kitchen and am planning on getting some tiles for my hallway soon!

Mrs Carney, Client

We have over the last 3 years totally refurbished our 5-star Silver award B&B. Rees Tiles and Flooring have supplied all the tiles for our bathrooms and kitchen and we cannot praise them highly enough. The tiles are top class quality as is the service received from Steve and his staff. We would not buy tiles in the future from anywhere else and would recommend them to anyone.

Mel Smith, Capernwray House B&B

Everyday durability and long-term maintenance are important factors when choosing any product, especially for use in a commercial environment. We’ve used many grouts and sealants over the years but found nothing that goes the distance when it comes to deterioration or discolouration.

Carl Johannessen, Jigsaw PFM

I would certainly recommend Rees Tiles and Flooring Ltd to anyone. From the minute I walked in I was greeted with a smile and received fantastic service. The team helped me in selecting the tiles for my main bathroom, en-suite and kitchen. Rees Tiles are willing to go that extra step further to make sure the customer is completely satisfied – it’s just a shame I have nothing else I need to tile now!

Mr Keit, Client

My mum has used Rees Tiles for years and it was off her recommendation that we got in touch with Steve and Holly. They listened to what we wanted and understood the look we were trying to achieve. We borrowed samples and by having the tiles at the house we were able to decide what worked best in the space and lighting. I especially like the colours in the mosaic, and everyone always compliments on how eye-catching and effective they look. Thanks for all your help Rees Tiles!
