Add charm and character to kitchens, bathrooms, halls and conservatories. We have a huge selection of ceramic and porcelain tiles ranging from large Italian porcelain floor tiles, right up to small, richly glazed, handmade wall tiles. So whether you're after rustic charm or the polished finish of contemporary living, challenge us to find the tiles for you.
Ceramic tiles are manufactured using more traditional methods with a protective, decorative glaze fired onto a clay base. Ceramic tiles are usually easier to cut & therefore install, than porcelain alternatives & don’t require the maintenance of real stone.
Unglazed Porcelain tiles are made using a relatively recent technology that produces tiles with a low water content, so the tile is considerably harder than a ceramic tile & generally frost-proof so it can be used outdoors. Glazed porcelain has a decorative glaze fired onto the surface of the tough, porcelain base whereas in an unglazed porcelain tile, the colour and decorative effect go right through from the surface to the bottom, so it won’t wear away!
Glazed Porcelain tiles are manufactured using similar technology to the unglazed porcelain and offering the same durability & frost-resistance, glazed porcelain tiles have a decorative glaze fired onto the surface which further enhances the design characteristics of the tile.
