Shaped tiles refer to tiles that are cut and shaped into non-traditional shapes or designs, as opposed to the typical square or rectangular tiles commonly used on façades and walls. The use of shaped tiles on facades has become increasingly popular in recent years as designers and architects seek to push the boundaries of traditional building design and create more visually striking and dynamic structures.
These tiles can come in a variety of shapes, such as hexagons, diamonds, triangles, and other geometric shapes, as well as customized shapes and designs. They add a unique and visually interesting element to design projects, helping to create projects that stand the test of time. Their non-traditional shapes and designs allow architects and designers to create complex and intricate patterns that can add depth, texture, and visual interest to building exteriors.
These tiles are made with irregular shapes and sizes that give a unique appearance to walls and structures.
Shaped tiles can be customized to fit specific design needs, such as color, size, pattern, and texture.
