National Tile Week

With #NationalTileWeek in full swing, we are absolutely loving talking everything tiles! A full week-long celebration of tiles is our idea of heaven and we hope we can get you feeling inspired too.

If you’ve not heard already, it’s National Tile Week, a celebration of tiles and British design and manufacturing. We’re the only national retailer to be supporting the event, in association with British Ceramic Tile, and we’re hoping to educate and inspire you on how tiles can create a stunning and versatile backdrop to your home interiors.

We know lots of you will be getting your hands dirty this bank holiday weekend with home improvement projects and renovating, so National Tile Week is here to help you. With events across London and across our social media, we’ll be examining the latest interior trends, busting myths about the complexity of tiles and giving you lots of practical tips to go home with to maximise your home improvement efforts.

To kick off the celebrations, with lovely interior designer, Julia Kendell, we held a pop-up shop in Covent Garden, London on Monday. The Q&A with Julia left us feeling inspired - we hope you enjoyed it if you were there! If you missed out, don’t worry, events are taking place all week on our Facebook page and, if you’re not in London, you can pop into your local Tile Giant store for exclusive deals, promotions and any advice for your latest home improvement project.

Not forgetting, you can win a trip to London as well!

British Tile Design

We’re passionate about British quality and design. We know how important the finish is in your home and making sure you get the look that suits your taste, whether that’s on-trend or classic style. That’s why we only choose suppliers, like British Ceramic Tile, who’re entirely focused on quality manufacturing in their Devon factory and who work with British designers, like Laura Ashley and the V&A, to design innovative and beautiful tiles.

Get British Design In Your Own Home

Whether your interior style is rustic country cottage that gleams of England’s green and pleasant land, or more classic and contemporary, our British designer collections bring you both style and quality.

Laura AshleyIf you’re looking for the final touch to your DIY project this weekend, the collection from quintessential British designer, Laura Ashley, will bring both warmth and character to your home, whichever room is on the list.

Known for her soft floral prints and rustic style, the collection is epitomised by subtle prints, classic Victorian geometrics and rustic gloss brick tiles.
