 Top tiling tips... trade secrets

Tiles can make a dramatic statement and not just in the kitchen and bathroom. Every room in your home can look stunning with large format tiles, innovations in fitting, gorgeous materials and accent borders.


Flooring can make or break a room; whether you go for comfort and sink your feet into a luxury carpet or add structure with hard flooring; the type of base you choose acts as the foundation to creating a really great room. There are many different types to choose from and you can even add underfloor heating for that final touch of opulence.

Changing your flooring doesn't need to cause as much disruption to your life as you may think; start in one corner of the room and work your way across and either temporarily move the furniture to a different room or move it along as you finish a section. Whilst you're focusing on your floor don't forget your skirting boards; B&Q now offer a click-in skirting board, so it's never been easier to make a change.
