Step by Step Guide
Request a FREE design consultation by clicking the link below.
One of our designers will be in touch via email to confirm the appointment and to request any drawings, photographs and inspirational images which may help when choosing your tiles. The more we know about your project, the better!
Our designer will call you at the time you have specified (or meet you in store when we re-open). You can talk through your ideas with your designer on the look you’re hoping to achieve, and they will discuss tile designs and colours, taking into account your unique space, light and design taste.
Following your session, you will be sent a mood board and a summary with your chosen tiles for each room specified, along with a special 10% design discount code to use when ordering.
If needed, we can recommend a tiler, but if you already have one, we’ll be happy to share a copy of your chosen tiles and mood images with them before your project begins.
