It can be a tricky task to blend classic with contemporary, but customer Laura Howarth has achieved this perfectly by using our Victorian-style Boulevard tiles to add a quirky but timeless look to her home.
We have a really obscure hallway with different levels and when we moved in, the whole area and stairs were carpeted in an awful peachy colour. We were trying our best to bring a bit more character to our quirky Victorian home and I desperately wanted to tile this area to make a real ‘wow’ entrance.
I started the search for some gorgeous tiles but, despite this not being a huge area to cover, the tiles I was finding from mainstream tile suppliers were far too expensive.
I then stumbled across these gorgeous Boulevard tiles from Direct Tile Warehouse. I contacted them directly requesting a quote for the amount of tiles I would need and received a very speedy response. Direct Tile Warehouse were very friendly and helpful in their communications, and didn’t mind when I asked (a couple of times!), for re-quotes due to our tiler changing his mind on the amount we’d need! I was amazed that we could get these tiles at such a reasonable price and was so pleased it meant we could finally get the hallway we wanted.
The beautiful colours in the tiles meant I was spoilt when it came to choosing the accompanying carpet colour for the stairs, but I couldn’t resist picking out the lovely blue, and I’m very pleased I did.
I think the end result is fab and we receive so many compliments when we open the front door - just what we wanted!
