  1. Bag a bargain this Black Friday

    Bag a bargain this Black Friday

    Over the last few years Black Friday has become as much a part of the pre-Christmas build-up as searching for the perfect party dress or dusting off the tinsel. Traditionally the last Friday of November, Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year and when many retailers offer flash sales, making it the perfect time to grab a bargain. And who says it’s all about buying presents for your loved ones? If you’re looking to spruce up your kitchen for the festive season or give your bathroom a fresh new look for the new year, then why not take advantage of the Black Friday discounts offered by Tile Trader?

    We’ve hand picked over 65 of our favourite wall tiles, floor tiles, stone mosaics and glass mosaics and from Friday 25th November until 9am on Monday 28th November we’re offering a fantastic discount of 30% off these selected lines. Unlike some retailers we’re not just using this as an excuse to clear old stock - we’ve made sure our selection of tiles and mosaics at 30% off offers something to suit every taste and project, whether you’re decorating your bathroom, kitchen, hallway or conservatory. 

    For example, bring some hygge into your home with our Drake wood effect floor and wall tiles, which can be used to create a cosy Scandinavian feel that’s perfect for Christmas and beyond. Another key interiors trend for 2017 is white marble, and now you can snap up the look for less with 30% off our Calcutta marble effect porcelain tiles. They’re available in either a matt or gloss finish (why not mix both?) in a contemporary 20x114cm plank format that’s suitable for floors or walls in any room. Our Country range of handmade effect gloss ceramic wall tiles is always good value, but with an extra 30% off during Black Friday now is the ideal time to invest in this on-trend style in a dainty 5x25cm size that’s perfect for fixing in a herringbone pattern on bathroom walls or kitchen splashbacks. Proving that sparkle isn’t just for Christmas, our Everest Ice Glass Mosaic in black and silver with delicate jewelled pieces is ideal for creating kitchen splashbacks or bathroom borders with real wow factor that you can appreciate at any time of the year. 

    Even if you’re not planning to start your tiling project until the new year, take advantage of these fantastic discounts now and treat yourself to an early Christmas present (wrapping the tiles to put under your tree is optional), and with the money you save you can really enjoy the festive season. Don’t forget to visit the site on Friday 25th November, as at these prices we can’t guarantee that the stock will be around for long!

  2. Perfect Patterns

    Perfect Patterns

    When it comes to interior design, tiles are really having their moment in the spotlight. Visit any new bar, restaurant, shopping centre or hotel and the chances are you’ll see tiles being used to create striking trend-led looks, from industrial to vintage chic.

    One of the biggest trends is for tiles that replicate the look of traditional encaustic patterned tiles. Featuring a patchwork of designs in either a monochrome colour palette or warm muted colours, these tiles capture the essence of sunnier climes and bring any space to life. And thanks to the launch of our new La Fayette range you can now recreate this on-trend look in your own home.

    The large 60x60cm matte floor tiles are made from glazed porcelain, which makes them very durable and suitable for use throughout the home. Porcelain feature floors are particularly popular for hallways, where you can make a great first impression on your visitors whilst benefiting from the hard wearing, low maintenance properties of porcelain floor tiles that are suitable for high traffic areas. For a real wow factor you could also use these patterned tiles on walls, perhaps to create a feature wall in your dining room or a striking kitchen splashback 

    Each La Fayette tile comprises a patchwork of 16 smaller patterns with a hand painted quality, and the range is available in a choice of two colours. For those who want an authentic patterned feature floor reminiscent of the traditional tiles found in places such as Portugal, the Multi Colour option blends shades of muted yellow, blue, grey and beige for a warm finish that will look great against rustic wood furniture. For a more modern edge, the grey colour option gives kitchens, bathrooms, dining rooms or hallway floors a contemporary twist. To see the choice of colours for yourself, why not order a sample today?

    If you’re using patterned tiles on your floor and wondering what wall tiles to team them with, why not try a simple tile in white or a solid colour that combines traditional style with contemporary design trends such as our Metro or Country wall tiles? Whilst both these tile styles nod to bygone eras, they’re also very contemporary and on-trend right now, making them the perfect partner for patterned feature floors.

    One thing’s for sure, if you want to create real impact with your interior design then patterned tiles are a great option.
