News, Tips & Trends


General tips for choosing tiles for your home

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 picked up 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. Most companies will offer a refund on unused boxes of tiles.
