Tile Devil Stays on Top of New Trends in Home Decor
By: Tile Devil
All the major genus of natural wood can be replicated in exacting detail. Each tile can now differ from the next in a batch. The texture of these tiles is such that, to the touch, they exhibit the same subtle undulations inherent in real planks. It is now very difficult, if not impossible, to tell the difference between wood and wood effect tiles with the naked eye.
Recognising this trend in UK home décor, Tile Devil, an online retailer of floor and wall tiles, has just expanded its range of wood effect tiles. It now provides the UK market with over two dozen styles from the Spanish tile manufacturers Halcon Ceramicas, Cicogres, Azulindus y Marti, and STN. Their new range includes:
• a variety of wood effect styles including oak, beech, maple, and walnut
• distressed wood effects
• reclaimed appearances
• rustic effects replete with knots
• in varying lengths up to 1.2 metres, in a variety of colours.
Mr. Graham Grumley, Tile Devil Director, said "Demand for wood effect tiles has been exceptional. They were going out the door so quick we had to contact the manufacturers to speed up delivery. Homeowners had recognised that tiles require little to no care, unlike timber floors."
On the broader macro picture, he continued "We were worried that recent political events and a slide in the pound might have dampened consumer confidence. So far, it seems there was no reason to be concerned. It's the same as other years: everyone wants their house to look great in time for Christmas. With our expanded range, we're in a super position to satisfy that demand."
