No. of Pages : N/A

The UK is an unusual market by European standards due to the predominance of wall tiles, but attitudes to ceramic tiles for flooring are changing, stimulated by the emergence of wet rooms and some use outside the traditional areas of kitchens and bathrooms. Per capita consumption of tiles is, however, still the lowest in Europe, and roughly a third of Northern European countries, so substantial potential exists.
