We all love to shop online but are we missing out on professional advice and expertise by not visiting our local tile shops?
The increase in online shopping over recent years has been enormous and below we give some interesting statistics about online shopping that might surprise you – but first, some of our favourite new images:
Shopping for tiles is, in many ways, difficult – we all want to get a good deal but we also want the best tiles we can afford to buy. But when it comes to tiles there is much more to a purchase than just cost and look.
We need to consider where the tiles will be installed and whether a particular tile is suitable for the job. If the area to be tiled is a busy hallway, a wet room or an external pool area our choice will have to be limited to tiles that are suitable for these areas to withstand high traffic or the elements (if they are outside). So when we buy tiles it is not as simple a decision as picking a style you like at a cost you can afford.
That’s why we always recommend talking to the professionals for advice before your buy. Tiling professionals have expertise that can make your decision easier and will ensure you buy the right sort of tile for your project.
Whilst we have a wide range of tiles on display in our showroom so you can see them in a real setting, we also understand that it’s not always possible to get to tile shops that sell your preferred tile. Although there are plenty of tile stores around they generally stock different products. So we also sell some of our most popular ranges online (with free samples) and should you choose to buy online we are always happy to give advice over the phone to help you make the right choice.
