When you move into a new property, it doesn’t matter if the previous owners left it in pristine condition, it’ll never feel like it’s fully yours until you’ve stamped your own personality on it. Once you’ve moved in and you’re surrounded by your own belongings, that’ll help, but you’ll probably still want to make changes, just to make your house feel more like your own home.
Don’t forget that if you’re buying a new property before 31st March 2021, you’ll be taking advantage of the reduced Stamp Duty rates, which means you’ll have more money to spend on changes and home improvements. Of course, the easiest way to make changes that turn a house into your home is to redecorate the walls, painting or wallpapering them in your own style.
If you aren’t sure what you want yet, but you’ll ‘know it when you see it’, there are plenty of websites that will give you ideas and inspiration for your new project. Home interior sites and magazines will inspire you with the latest trends, or check out websites such as Houzz which are full of ideas, tips and photos from homeowners and professionals. The best thing about it is seeing what other people have done to make the most of the space they have, whether it’s a small room, an odd-shaped room or awkward corners.
If you want to make big changes in the kitchen or bathroom, replacing the tiles is something you can do yourself to keep costs down… which will enable you to cover even more walls and floors! For inspiration, check out the gallery of photos that our proud customers have sent us of their work.
Value & Variety is our catchphrase, and we’ve got literally hundreds of different designs, finishes and colours of tiles to choose from. We source our tiles directly from the manufacturer which is how we can ensure they are always high quality. And by cutting out the middleman, we can afford to charge less. In fact, we guarantee you won’t be able to buy any of the tiles we sell at lower prices within a 10-mile radius of a Home Tiles store.
Our stores don’t just sell tiles – we have everything you’ll need in order to do the job yourself. And as our staff members know everything there is to know about all things tiles and tiling, just ask them for advice. They’ll make sure you have the right tiles, adhesive (this is especially important if you have underfloor heating) and any accessories you’ll need to get the job done, and they can talk you through the basics of doing it yourself.
So however you’re planning to use tiles in turning your house into a home, visit your nearest Home Tiles store for inspiration and advice from our expert members of staff. Please respect our COVID-secure restrictions and always wear a mask.
If you can’t make up your mind on your visit, you can take samples home to try them out. And to help keep everything secure, you can order online and pick up your tiles when they’re ready with our Click and Collect service.
