A kitchen is often the heart of the home, it’s where we learn to cook and bake, have romantic meals and share family gossip. It’s the room that very young children show their displeasure by throwing food on the floor and all over unfortunate parents.With this busy family life style, kitchen floor tiles can be a cost effective labour saving idea. Smooth ceramic floor tiles and porcelain floor tiles are a great option if you have frequent messy spills to clean up.

Finding the perfect bathroom tiles can be time consuming and problematic, especially when you think you have found just what you are looking for, only to get them home and find the colour looks nothing like you thought. With this in mind it is always a good idea to try samples at home first. There are many aspects that can affect the way your tiles look and the kind of light you have both natural and artificial play a big part in this. Make the most of any natural light that you have by keeping your windows uncluttered. Never look at your tile samples outside, as this kind of natural light is not replicated in an indoor environment.

You may have noticed that wall and floor tiles have become much larger in recent years. We find that a lot of our customers haven’t changed their tiles for a while and think that smaller tiles are preferable.

But be aware that any tiles that have a deeply textured surface will be a little trickier to keep clean, especially if you are cooking regularly!

Tiles have been around for millennia but it was the ever inventive Victorians (namely Herbert Minton) who revolutionised the way they were produced and consumed. In 1828 he started experimenting with techniques to mass manufacture encaustic tiles (the pattern is created from different colour clays not the glaze, making them exceptionally hard wearing) and in 1835 he published his first catalogue of products.
With the month-long slog that’s January done and dusted, we’re left with a strange feeling that the 80s are back (or a slightly dystopian version of the decade that taste forgot).
‘Welcome to suburbia’ should have been the strapline for the 1920s-30s; four-million homes were built between 1920 and 1939. Swathes of farmland, on the edges of towns and cities, were subsumed by the now ubiquitous three-bed semi-detached.
