Move and Improve

Director Richard Barclay of The Tile Room in Station Road, Backwell has some interesting insights to offer on what great looking floor and wall tiles can do to the look of your property, whether you’re preparing to sell, have moved house or just want a refresh.

“Today’s technology allows practical ceramic and porcelain tiles to look like another material entirely. Nowadays, you can enjoy the beauty and character of natural stone with its many variations, yet it is produced digitally as a tile, enabling it to be laid more quickly and with no sealing needed,at a very accessible price. Likewise, there are even porcelain tiles produced to look like wooden floor boards.”

The Tile Room has a wide range of products on offer, from wall and floor tiles, to exterior tiles suitable for use on patios and terraces and outside steps. Richard Barclay continues: “We have seen an increase in properties which use bi-fold doors to extend their kitchen area outside to a patio and we now have floor tiles which can create a seamless transition from indoors to out.”

For bathrooms and ‘wet rooms’ The Tile Room has a number of non-slip mosaics which can be used for the floor and wall in a variety of designs and colours. The company imports tiles from Spain and Italy and is able to offer sound advice and source products that are right for your own project.

“We’d recommend you pop in, take a look at some of our style boards and talk to us about your project. We can help you source the most appropriate tiles, suggest a local tiler who can come and measure your room and advise you on what can and can’t be done. With new flexible adhesives you can even tile over wooden or chipboard floors these days. Above all, new tiles can create a practical and very beautiful new look to your interior or exterior space.”
