orcelain tiles have come a long way since they first starting appearing in our stores when they were still out of the reach of most people in terms of cost. Now they are much more affordable, which is great for those of us who want beautiful, hard-wearing floors and walls in our kitchens and bathrooms. But what is even better is that porcelain tiles are now available in such as huge range of styles and finishes – they can be used indoors and outdoors, provided you choose ones with the right anti-slip rating if you are going to use them outdoors. This offers the opportunity to have a genuinely seamless look between inside and out when combined with bi-fold doors.
There are many great independent suppliers to choose from and they generally offer better value and better service than the big names so here are my favourite independent suppliers:
Long-established, friendly family business that supplies a massive range of porcelain tiles and natural stone tiles, at a wide range of prices, to the general public and also to luxury house builders. Always ready with great advice and they have huge stocks in their warehouses so no waiting if you have left your choice to the last minute. They are approved suppliers of designer tiles by Versace and Phillipe Starck. Spacious, well-laid out showrooms and also sell tiling accessories (adhesive, grout etc) and tools.
Ceramic Tile Company
This is a bit of a misleading name (although technically porcelain tiles are a type of ceramic tile) but they have fabulous showrooms with a huge choice for every budget and good, realistic-sized room layouts so you can see what the tiles look like on walls and floors. Plenty of good advice on offer, great choice and better prices than the big-name stores.
Well-established business so the staff are very knowledgeable and always ready with good, sound advice if you are not sure what are the best type of porcelain tiles for your installation, or even what size, texture or colour you want. They can recommend what to choose for kitchens, bathrooms, wet-rooms or outdoor and pool areas, which is particularly important in terms of safety in wet areas. Great choice, expert service and good prices.
Knowledgeable team and lots of inspiration in the showroom with a wide selection of tiles for all budgets. They also have a design visualiser so you can see online what certain tiles would look like in your room. CTD also have experts for matching old tiles if you are looking for replacements for damaged tiles.
Large, independent importer of porcelain tiles from Italy, Spain and Portugal with several showrooms and large stocks held in their warehouse. They offer a free home design service for larger projects, which is great for taking the worry out of choosing tiles, especially when there is so much choice on offer.

So whether you want contemporary, large format gloss white or a highly realistic natural stone finish and texture such as limestone or slate, or anything in between, porcelain tiles are a great choice.
