Here comes the sun...

With Spring sneaking upon us and the nights beginning to get longer and lighter, we are all starting to dream about the day we can spend all of our time back in our gardens – without a care in the world. To set the scene, the sun is shining, and you’ve got your last few months of freedom before the world goes back to normal. You step outside onto your brand-new Terrazzo Albert Earth patio and simply stand and take it all in. You look around your house and see the fresh new tiles that have just been fitted and know that your mind is at peace.

However, for most of us… that is all a dream. Reality has suddenly hit. It’s been such a long winter where the thought of looking after our outdoor space had completely vanished out of all of our minds. Now, we are all in the same boat. All of a sudden, we are experiencing that dreaded thought of when the sun is finally beaming, and we step outside and see the remnants of last summer. You are no longer looking down on your new Terrazzo tiles but simply looking at mundane rubble. The winter has taken its toll and has eroded away parts of the patio.

At this point in the year, especially during these times, we are all desperate for a little bit of change and why not begin with the space you will be spending the start, if not most, of your summer! Must I remind you that soon we will be allowed 6 people in our gardens, so maybe it’s time to bite the bullet. Here are a few ways to spruce up your spring...

TERRAZZO ALBERT EARTH

£56.02 per m2

With production once a fiercely guarded Italian secret Terrazzo has had a serious revival since its birth over 500 years ago. Our Terrazzo Albert porcelain tile range is one of the most authentic terrazzo replicas out there (we know our director Hannahs’ Italian ancestors would be proud of this one) with its smooth cement inspired surface complete with multicoloured chunky marble chips and a colouration that runs through the full body of the tile. Suitable for wall and floors we know you’ll love this collection as much as us.

SPEAKEASY DARK

£42.00 per m2

Whether you choose to tile this on the walls, the floor or even outside this porcelain petite tile is the perfect size to pack a real punch and add a real somethin’ somethin’ to your interior. If you are a lover of all things monochrome, then look no further than this marble inspired tile that creates the most eye-catching look at me pattern when laid.

SHOREDITCH STAR DARK

£42.00 per m2

Inspired by the urban cool of one of Londons most fashionable districts comes our Shoreditch Star collection. With a bold star print design on a speckled stone effect background this shining star will create a real focal point in any room it graces.

This Alfresco collection offers endless opportunities when it comes to tiling your home with both a 10mm and 20mm version which allows you to tile onto a solid fixed base outdoors or dry laid straight onto grass, sand... Alfresco benefits from brand new non-slip technology so whilst it is an R11 finish with PTV 50 (when wet) it has a smooth and easy to clean surface which you wouldn't typically expect from such a technical product with an anti-slip finish allowing you to maintain your home with ease.
