In 2007, an innovative entrepreneur spotted a gap in the market for high quality tiles imported directly from Spain, Italy and Portugal – thus, Tons of Tiles was born. The company started out selling porcelain and ceramic tiles via a well-known third party selling platform, and soon realised the internet had fantastic potential for competing at the very top of the industry; not only on service, but also on price.
Over the next four years, the business would outgrow its premises twice and eventually settle in a large distribution centre, where it continues to operate. Tons of Tiles quickly established a reputation for supplying Crackle Glaze and Metro wall tiles, both of which remain among the top sellers today. Many such Tons of Tiles products have been supplied to prominent brands including Cath Kidston, River Island and Caffé Nero.
Ecommerce and Marketing Manager Samantha Pengelly says: “Our aim is to make the renovation of a home or commercial property the easiest it can be, using beautifully selected tile products that can transform any room.” The company is proud to carry an increasingly wide range of wall and floor tiles and is committed to sourcing the best priced, designer branded tiles in both contemporary and traditional styles.
In addition to its vast tile collection, other products include a selection of stunning Laura Ashley splashbacks, designed to perfectly complement the immensely popular Heritage Collection floor tiles. Available in either dove grey or charcoal, the splashbacks feature a classic geometric pattern on a metallic background, with two stylish designs to choose from. When catching the light, these products radiate sophistication, elegance and designer chic, effortlessly transforming your kitchen into a harmonious space.
The company prides itself on excellent customer service and the friendly team is on hand five days a week to assist and advise, ensuring the order process is as smooth as possible. To this end, Tons of Tiles encourages customers to buy sample tiles before making a purchase so that they can be sure the product is just right for their requirements. Looking ahead, the business wishes to improve accessibility to a wide range of high quality designer branded tiles from both the UK and abroad. “We want to give our customers more options when carrying out renovation projects of any size,” says Samantha. In the decade since its establishment, Tons of Tiles has become the place to shop for great branded tile products.
