B2R DESIGN : A New Way of Living

Cultivating a sense of belonging through good design

The build to rent market has a very bright future, and recent statistics show that this industry shows no signs of abating, with approximately 195,000 new B2R homes in development in the UK. We could argue about the forces behind this, but to both tenants and developers the advantages of this new industry are extensive.

Key to successful B2R is a balance of well maintained and run properties, with a community hub that boasts great design. Living spaces need to be modern and fresh but also in an adaptable palette for those living within. For the developer, finishes need to be durable, well priced and easy to maintain. Community spaces need to be attractive centres, readily luring residents to these areas so they can really enjoy and engage beyond their apartment walls. We thought we’d share some of designer favourites when it comes to B2R projects.


Maletto tiles

Named after a lovely district of Sicily, these gorgeous tiles replicate Italian marble. In a wide series of sizes, we developed the collection to be used in both private residences and in more commercial spaces where more of an uninterrupted look is required.. VIEW MALETTO

Semaphore tiles

This range of porcelain is deceptively simple at first sight with its decoration of diagonally dipped colours. However, it can be laid myriad ways to create linear, chequerboard or more random patterns. Named after the time-honoured maritime communication system. Eight gorgeous hues are available.

Metro Deco tiles
Metro Deco

A perennially popular style, this great value brick tile with a distinctive crackle glaze continues to feel modern and relevant in any location. Lay the tiles in a brick bond pattern for visual interest. VIEW METRO DECO

Trousdale tiles

Made in Italy, the Trousdale range looks like true terrazzo, yet has all the practicality inherent to porcelain. The tread option has greater slip resistance ideal for use outside as a patio or on a balcony. VIEW TROUSDALE

Mazzani tiles

Produced in Italy these brick shaped wall tiles have a soft matt glaze with a lovely tactile texture. In six irresistibly earthy tones we think they have a strong decorative and practical appeal. VIEW MAZZANI

Giardinetto tiles

We spend a fair amount of time in Italy searching for the unique and beautiful and we tend to find ourselves sitting to ponder in the pretty Giardinetti dotted about the towns and cities we visit. These small gardens, and the sights and sounds experienced within them, inspired the naming of these lovely Italian glazes found on one such trip. VIEW GIARDINETTO
