From pink-hued tumbled limestone to off-white glossy porcelain, cream tiles are ideal for filling interiors with light and warmth. A more traditional, and sometimes practical, alternative to pure white, cream tiles can be integrated effortlessly into homes of all eras. Pair with coloured tiles or mix with black for a truly classic tiling scheme. An ideal partner for natural stone or stone-effect porcelain, cream tiles work beautifully with stronger neutrals such as grey or brown.
As with any warm-toned neutral, cream tiles rarely date. An enduring choice for both contemporary and traditional spaces – from city pads to country homes – this homely shade can instantly make a space feel lighter and more welcoming. It’s no surprise that cream kitchen tiles are an ever-popular choice for this reason, whether used on walls or floors. In fact, one the easiest ways to work with cream floor tiles is to choose a stone-effect tile such as our Wexford Buff porcelain range, which can be use inside and out. An indoor-outdoor tile such as this is a great option for kitchens that open out onto a garden.
If you’re searching for cream bathroom tiles, you can rarely go wrong with marble. Our Botticino marble is available in both polished and honed finishes for an off-white stone tile that’s as luxurious as it is durable. For a warmer ambience, look for cream tiles with beige or taupe undertones. To add depth, choose designs with a textural appearance, such as our Petra style, which mimics the natural beauty of limestone with its subtle flecking and warm-white base tones.
To create a rustic look, try our Cream Quartzite splitface tiles, which combine delicate linen, honey and pale-grey tones for depth and interest. Rugged and natural, these unusual tiles come in a brick-style format and have a rough-hewn surface that shows off the innate sparkle of the pale quartzite. Ideal for walls throughout the house, these eye-catching cream tiles can be used to create a stunning and textural focal point.
For something a little more playful, look to our Gelato collection, where you’ll find an ivory brick tile that’s the perfect foil for a selection of ceramic tiles in ice cream-inspired shades. Use alone or mix and match with any of these pretty pastel tones for a cheerful tiling scheme with a nostalgic feel. An ideal choice for a feature wall or splashback, the gentle surface undulation, combined with the light-reflecting glaze, means this tile will always attract attention, despite its subtle colour.
