General Tips For Choosing Tiles

Light colours - Choose light colours to make a small/dark room feel bigger and brighter. Be adventurous, however, don’t be afraid of colour which can also create some unique effects and environments in your home. Personal preference is the key.

Don't compromise -  See tiles as an investment, not a cost; never compromise on quality, which can still be found at great prices.

Plan ahead - Always purchase an additional 5-10% more tiles than you actually need. This allows you (or the tiler) to compensate for cuts and breakages and ensures you have the same batch/shade should you have needed additional tiles.  Our company  offer a refund on unused boxes of tiles. (T & C’s Apply)

Blend in those grout lines - Choose a tile grout colour that compliments your tiles to help blend in grout lines.
