Located just a stones throw from St Pancras International train station, Crowne Plaza Kings Cross is a newly renovated addition to the popular upscale hotel chain in central London.
Solus Ceramics collaborated with the team at Nous Design to supply tiles to more than 400 bathroom refurbishments within the hotel, which was carried out through a series of phased building programmes by contractors Connor Construction and ISG.
Formerly branded as a Holiday Inn, the property remained open throughout the redevelopment, which also saw all other areas of the hotel refreshed and redesigned.
The rusted effect tiles provide a sparkling, enigmatic quality
Solus Ceramics supplied more than 3500m2 of wall and floor tiles to the en suite bathrooms for each of the bedrooms in the hotel. An interesting project, the hotel hosts a variety of differently styled rooms with an array of alternate bathroom designs, including full baths, walk in showers and DDA suites.
Delightfully distinctive and extremely luxurious, the bathrooms at the Crowne Plaza possess a modern yet warm aesthetic that was brought to life with specially produced wall tiles that are similar to Solus Ceramics’ Ingenius collection.

The rusty bronze tiles are characterised by an array of rustic speckles, dappled elements and light flecks, with each piece showcasing a random variety of tones and alternating areas of patina.
With the slight difference in design from tile to tile and the use of two formats, each bathroom conveys a unique identity and individual style.
To complement the scheme, Solus Ceramics also supplied the floor tiles, which were selected from the Mineral range. These modern brown tiles feature a heavily textured, slate effect anti slip surface, ideally suited to bathrooms, wet rooms and pool sides.
