Race the Sun

Some of the ABCD members completed the ‘Race the Sun’ challenge last weekend in an impressive 8 hours and 33 minutes. They came 2nd overall and 1st in their age category, well done guys!

They competed in aid of Action Medical Research, a charity that supports sick and disabled children, and have managed to raise £3,885.00 so far. Don’t worry, if you’d like to donate it’s not too late.


We’d like to introduce Tank-It, the all new waterproofing kit from BAL.

It’s suitable for use internally or externally to waterproof areas prior to tiling. The rapid-setting Tank-it can be tiled after only 90 minutes which means time efficient project completion, and no priming or matting is required!


For a total tanking solution look no further than Tank-it. Easy to use it can be applied simply using a standard notched trowel, brush or roller. Tank-it comes with a full back-up technical support and a 25 year guarantee for complete peace of mind.

Steal the look

We came across this wonderful bathroom on Pinterest the other day and absolutely loved it, if you love it too here’s how you can ‘steal the look’.

Recreate this New York City penthouse look and make a statement with our new range – Old English Brick.

The perfect tile to complement our new range would be a wood look floor tile. We have many to choose from but a customer favourite has to be Woodker. Woodker creates a traditional wood look with the added bonus of minimal maintenance.

Finally, for the marble shower enclosure choose our prestigious porcelain Arabescato range. Add a touch of luxuriousness to this shabby-chic interior with the large format size Arabescato.

Range of the Month

Old English Brick Charcoal This month has to be Old English Brick. We’ve just welcomed some new unique colour options within this range that give the brick effect tile a contemporary twist.
