Considering a tile revamp can be intimidating - there are so many options out there that it can be overwhelming to even consider where you should start. White tiles are classics for a reason, but they're not the main option anymore, and certainly confining tiles to your kitchen and bathroom isn't necessary any more.

Fancy some wood-effect porcelain for your hall? Go for it. Still love a subway tile in a bathroom? Go crazy. Thinking about tiling your outdoor space? Easily done. All you need is to get in touch with the right tile supplier to get the ball going.

To make things easy, we've asked four Dublin tile suppliers who know a tile revamp inside out for their top tips and what you can expect if you visit their showrooms.

What should people take into account when planning a tile revamp?

The main aspects to be taken into consideration when planning a tile revamp are:

  1. Daylight Quality , Work out how much natural daylight you are likely to get throughout the day, This may sway your decisions on colour palette and surface type.
  2. Colour palette, Try to establish a range of colours you would prefer, for example neutral cool colours or warm colours.
  3. Surface textures, think over the surface options, ie. Polished, Natural matt, or Structured.
  4. Budget, try to calculate your budget for tiles per square mtr, this will give you a good start point in which to start looking at options.

They provide a one-stop-shop solution, which includes interior and exterior surfaces options, seamless supply and fit services and expert design advice. Their tile ranges include ceramics, porcelain, glass and stone tiles in a huge variety of finishes, colours and sizes from pattern tiles, to wood effect tiles, marble effect tiles, large format tiles and metro tiles. They aim to take the stress out of home renovation and to save the customer time and money by de-coding the process - simply pay them a visit, browse the showroom, get expert advice from one of their design advisors, choose your tiles, and book your install or put them in touch with your local tiler, all in the one go.

 

What should people take into account when planning a tile revamp?

Bigger is Better: Basically, the less grout lines, the better. Your room will look more spacious and the finish will be cleaner. Use smaller tiles like mosaics or metro for feature areas like a splashback or an inset shelf.

Introduce Textures: Most people ask for their space to reflect character in some way. Using different textures will create interest. A lot of our tile ranges include a décor tile for this purpose. The décor tile will often have a raised surface, a pattern or an interesting finish which will inject life into the design. Another way to create interest is by mixing different looks like for example, wood-effect and pattern.

Grout Colour is as important as your tile: Grout scrubbing is not a job that the modern homeowner has time for. We would always recommend a darker grout as it’s more practical. We stock the Botament range of colours and use colour-match charts in-store so that your grout choice is exactly right.

 

What's different about your tiles offering?

We guarantee that 98% of the tile styles that you see in our showroom are in-stock on the day, which means that there’s no waiting around for the tiles for your project. We offer supply and fit services for full bathroom fit-outs, tiles, artificial grass and wood floors. This means that you are guaranteed that the tradesman can fit the product you choose. Often, people choose a large-format tile only to find that their tiler does not have large-format experience. Our buying team travels the world sourcing suppliers and attending International Trade Shows which means that we can offer the customer the latest in design trends at very competitive prices. Our showroom and sales processes aim to take the mystery out of choosing and installing interior and exterior finishes for your project so that you can sit back and enjoy a stress-free renovation.

 

What's new in store for you?

The advances in tile manufacturing technology are astounding and we are extremely excited about new tile finishes which have just arrived in-store. For example, Udino is a finish which is just new in – it is a tile that has a smooth pure-matt finish with specks of metallic lustre running over the surface. It’s simply stunning.
