What is onyx?
Natural onyx is a variety of chalcedony, a type of microcrystalline quartz characterised by its parallel bands of colour, with enormous potential for natural colour variations. Its name is derived from the Greek for ‘nail’ or ‘claw’, as paler-coloured varieties of onyx bear some resemblance to a human fingernail.
Onyx has long been used in carving, engraving and jewellery-making thanks to its stunning natural colouring, but isn’t a particularly practical tile material due to its softness and fragility compared with other, less brittle forms of natural stone.
For this reason, we offer our customers a choice of stunning onyx effect wall and floor tiles so you can bring the extraordinary beauty of onyx into your home’s design while enjoying the numerous practical benefits of superior tile materials.
Why onyx effect tiles?
Featuring striking, unique veins and detailing in a rainbow of colours, onyx tiles brilliantly showcase the beauty of nature - giving interiors a wonderfully organic aesthetic. Onyx stone is similar to marble in its colouring, appearance and price point, but it can be more fragile and require more maintenance than marble.
There is another way you can enjoy the beauty of onyx tiles without the upkeep, though, with our onyx effect porcelain tiles. Possessing a range of practical perks and ultra-realistic aesthetics that mimic the look and feel of onyx, these tiles are a beautiful and durable solution to covering walls and floors throughout your home.

Take your pick from:
- Polished: with a shiny, light-reflecting surface, polished onyx tiles can make areas feel bigger and brighter - but keep in mind they will need frequent cleaning to keep them looking sleek and shiny
- Diamond glazed: featuring a robust diamond glaze, these tiles are ideal for high-traffic areas of the home - helping to minimise the effects of daily wear and tear
- Matt: for a more contemporary look, matt finish onyx effect tiles provide a duller finish that adds texture and depth to walls and floors, especially with the beautiful detailing of the tile design
Your onyx tile sizes
The size of your tile also matters when it comes to pulling off your dream home interior design.
For instance, large onyx wall tiles in a small space will create fewer grout lines, making the area feel bigger. On the flip side, using smaller tiles in vast areas will work to give the space more character and interest.
Our onyx tile range includes the following size options:
- 42.7cm x 86.2cm
- 30cm x 90cm
- 60cm x 60cm
- 45cm x 90cm
- 60cm x 120cm
