We have a great selection of porch tiles at our Norwich & Attleborough showrooms. Both showrooms display our range of porch tiles.
We are an independent floor tile specialist shop in Norwich. If you are looking to buy a tiled floor then we are the team to talk to.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT TILE FOR YOUR PORCHWAY:
One immediate question needs to be answered before we wander off into the more exciting realms of colours & style – is your porchway open to the elements or not?
The answer to this question can save you so much time hunting for the perfect tile because not all tiles are able to withstand the harsher elements of our varied British climate.
If your porchway is open to the elements then you will need to be looking for a tile well suited to the outdoors.
Tiles that match the character of your home
Your porchway is the gateway to your house, your dream home, your castle, your sanctuary.
Now is your moment to use it to make a statement… an initial nod to the character of the house within, after all, you want it to look inviting as well as being practical.
What tiles should be used for the porch?
The overall main requirement for a porchway tile is that it is tough, durable & has a decent anti-slip element to it too. Coming home from the rain, in a rush to get in and get your boots off – the hazard of slipping & tripping needs to be taken seriously.
Even if it’s not raining, it could be mud from your children’s shoes or even just dew from the grass that your family pooch has walked in. Either way, it’s an issue that should not be ignored.
As the main thoroughfare, you will need to be considering a tile which can take plenty of footfall with all those pairs of shoes, boots, heels, trainers & paws traipsing through.
Even with the above caveats you still have a really wide array of options in size, colour, style & material.
Picking a style for your porch tiles?
You can choose from:
- traditional quarry tiles
- natural stone
- large format
- Old English Victorian style
- black & white chequerboard
We have lots of samples for you to look at in both our stores, and we are here to help answer all your questions.
