Practical tips

A guide to our world of colour

Colour is one of our core strengths at Marlborough Tiles. In fact, our ability to create colour and glaze from scratch is one of the things that truly set us apart. Each one is individually mixed, expertly combined from our collection of over fifty raw pigments and stains to create the perfect nuance of shade. In short, you simply won't find our colours anywhere else.

Within our collections you will find an extraordinary array of colours and tones – from the deepest greens to the softest grey-blues, and in today's article, we're sharing just a small selection of our most popular tiles in a spectrum of our richly coloured glazes to provide inspiration. Explore more shades here.

Understanding the light in your space will help you to choose the perfect tile. South facing rooms are basked in light from the sun all day long, and cooler tones will bring a sense of balance to those spaces. On the other hand, north facing rooms will be warmed and softened by a glazes that include subtle yellow or pink tones.

It is worth noting that colours can look quite different depending on the light in which they are viewed. Not to mention, different screens will display colours slightly differently. For these reasons, we recommend that you order a selection of samples of your favourite tiles, placing them in your space for a few days and looking at them at different times of day, before making your final choice and placing a full order.

Alternatively, pop into our inspiring showroom, where you can fully appreciate the unique nuance of colour that make our tiles so special.

And of course, if you would like a little more guidance, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Design Team. Our all-encompassing design service can help you define your vision, with a bespoke session dedicated to understanding your interior design needs.
