We are constantly being asked by our customers the same question……………Should they choose Porcelain tiles or Stone? I am sure we will all agree that Limestone, Slate and Marble floor and wall tiles are simply stunning, from beautiful white limestone to the more rustic travertine. If you are prepared to put some graft in, your floors will stay as beautiful as the day they were laid down. By graft we mean you must seal your stone correctly from the start. We recommend www.ltp-online.co.uk . You must seal your stone correctly, as stone is a porous product and would stain if the stone is not sealed. Obviously the seal with wear and tear does often need replacing, you must strip the old seal off and apply the new sealer. More advice on this can be obtained from us, if you need it. If you really feel that your life is too busy to be thinking about maintaining your stone floor!!! Why not consider the amazing porcelain options that are on the market. I must admit to having porcelain in my own home. To be honest the products on the market now are so good, it takes a well trained eye to actually see that it isn’t stone. You can see from our products page some of the porcelain options available. In a shower we would really recommend a porcelain option, with the constant use of most showers and the steam etc, to have porcelain in the shower is the sensible option. As the steam does break down the seal eventually. If it’s a bathroom, it isn’t as much of a problem. The beautiful porcelain options are incredible. Please call in to visit us and see our many displays. For more information try www.edimax.it or www.coem.it or www.verde1999.com to name a few good companies that we are stockists for. We hope this is helped to make your decision easier!?

EVERYTHING VINTAGE!!!!! Well it would seem that we are all becoming Vintage Mad. The trend to “make do and mend”, has never been more popular. I must admit I Love the Vintage, Shabby, Frenchie Look in my own home. So when I saw the lovely new Epoque Tiles, we thought that they would sell very well. We were right, they are selling very well. The tile gives a lovely Moroccan look and teamed with a beautiful silvery grey brick wall tile is a beautiful idea for a bathroom (see photo!) The range is called ODYSSEY and is made by a company called ORGINAL STYLE. This company makes beautiful tiles based on tiles from the past. They also do a range based on Victorian Tiles; their tiles are copies of original floors from Victorian Houses. The tiles can be used for hallways, porches and even patios. Be back Soon…………….
We have been busy with a high customer demand for our WOOD_KER Porcelain flooring. This product is truly amazing as it gives such a true look of wood flooring but is made out of porcelain. There are many reasons why porcelain is preferable to wood. For example in a kitchen or a bathroom were water could be an issue, obviously with a Porcelain this is not a problem. Wood also can tend to bleach with sunlight again this will not happen with the WOOD_KER products. They are so easy to keep clean, without any need for sealing and are completely hygienic. The added plus is that they are amazing conductors for your “warmup” Under Floor Heating, if you really want to push the boat out!! The WOOD_KER range of porcelain wood comes in four shades from Walnut to Grey (which looks like driftwood). We do have other ranges of porcelain wood one called SELECT. This range gives the look of a more distressed look. Probably a Shabby Chic look! It has the same benefits as the WOOD_KERR and comes in four shades Moka, Kaki, Ash and Light. In my humble opinion I just love the SELECT LIGHT. The reason being that I just love everything white and with this product you do not need to worry about staining etc………..Bliss!!! Right will be back soon, with some news on our new delivery of French Furniture. Also I cannot go, without saying that we are awaiting some new displays of the most amazing Stone. Although porcelain is selling very well as it has great practical benefits; We still love stone, when you think about how old the stone is it is actually incredible to have it in your home. We will upload some photographs shortly.
Victoria and Albert make a beautiful range of baths ranging from the contemporary Antibes, (built in), the Como, Ella and of course the ever popular Monaco. For a more classic look we have the Cheshire, which is a free standing roll top bath with a choice of beautiful claw feet, from glitzy gold to the shabby chic white. (we have this bath at home and it is glorious!!) The Hampshire, Marlborough, Richmond, and Shropshire are in this range and are really beautiful baths. I can not finish without mentioning our possible favourite bath (it does change!) at the moment it has to be the Almalfi, I suppose it is considered a contemporary bath but would fit in nicely as a stunning asset to a period property. If you need a brochure or any further information please contact us.
