This Valentine’s Day we decided to do something a little different, instead of getting all lovey-dovey about the people in our lives we have turned our attention to tiles! This may sound a little sad but we are all extremely passionate about tiles here and as part of the Hampshire Tile Warehouse group of companies we have nearly 70 years experience in the industry. We asked our staff to tell us about their favourite tile ranges and you can read some of the responses below.
My favourite tile is Napoli Grey, although, I may be biased as I selected it for my own bathroom almost 2 years ago. I possibly love it more now than when the bathroom was first tiled.
The Grey Limestone decoration is full of subtle variation, the colour lends itself to the addition of a variety of colours. Accessories in Orange, Lime, Aubergine, Cerise and Celeste all happily coexist with the tile. The shock was spending over £300 on different colours of towels.
The colour of the tile itself changes with different lighting condition with early morning light the tile appears to have a faint purplish hue, during the day it has a hint of cement grey about it, in the evening under artificial light it changes again.
Napoli, I’ll never tire of you.
Keith Williamson, Senior Sales Manager
I love the Caress Black porcelain tiles. The subtle surface shimmer really catches the eye and the large format 800 x 800 size creates a real wow factor on the floor.
Charlotte Skinner, Graphic Designer
My favourite is the Caress Slate, it has a lovely sheen without being shiny and is dark but not too dark so gives the contemporary look. The rectified edges give it a clean sleek look.
Sarah Turner, Brighton Sales Manager
I love the Grey field and Grey linear decor wall tiles in our Sirocco range, they seem to be both modern and timeless (if that’s possible!!) at the same time, they were popular sellers when I was first at HTW and still are 2 years later upon my return.
Anthony Batson, Ash Vale Trade Counter & Showroom Manager
I love the Malmo cement effect range, particularly the Dark colour which has a really dramatic feel that’s contrasted by the fun herringbone-style Geometric Decor tile.
Eloise Street, Marketing Executive
Grove – the high quality digital reproduction of wooden design giving a warm, cosy feel, combined with the textural beauty & charm of a split face mosaic installation yield, what is described by the manufacturer, as “spectacular & captivating” – I couldn’t agree more.
Simon Rowe, Managing Director
I love the Bronte range, the fact they are glossy I love how the light reflects of the bumpy edges.
Kerrie Donovan, Hedge End Assistant Branch Manager
Random, quirky, stunning, the New England range is like a magical jigsaw puzzle. The wood effect is stunning and each box contains a random assortment of colours and patterns, so that everyone can create a totally unique design for their home. The New England Mix comprises 6 completely different tiles, which, when combined, make magic. My absolute favourite tile.
Rachel Hunt, Financial Controller
