National Tile Week celebrates tiles in all their glory for the third year running

Now in its third successful year, National Tile Week is back and set to make an impact in 2018. Sponsored by British Ceramic Tile, the week-long campaign will celebrate tiles in all their glory and demonstrate how versatile they can be for many projects large or small.

Offering ideas on how tiles can be creatively be used in residential and commercial projects, National Tile Week will reveal the latest trends sweeping through the design world, dispel some common myths about tiles and share practical tips and solutions when it comes to updating interior spaces.

British Ceramic Tile’s head of spec marketing, Liam Poole comments:

“National Tile Week is all about celebrating what a fantastic surface covering they are for projects of all shapes and sizes. Tiles today are much more than a practical solution, instead they bring texture, colour, pattern and the latest trends to your walls and floors creating some truly wow designs. Cost effective, easy to install and super stylish, everyone can make the ordinary, extraordinary with the simple addition of wall and floor tiles.”

Julia Kendell launches National Tile Week

National Tile Week 2018 is fronted by interiors guru, Julia Kendell, best known for her work on DIY SOS and 60 Minute Makeover. For the second year running, Julia is back to help give tiles the credit they deserve and put them firmly on the map when it comes to interiors. Julia will be leading a national radio campaign bringing her top tips and insights to homeowners across the UK and will kick off the week at a Facebook Live event on Monday 9 April where she’ll be answering any tile-related questions.

Ceramic tiles are becoming the go-to choice for a number of reasons. Water and dirt-resistant, they tick all the practical boxes for busy homes and ceramic is the perfect partner to under-floor heating. Offering an unrivalled decorative finish, they can be used to complement the key looks for this year, with the latest playful patterns trend being a firm favourite of mine.

“I am delighted to be supporting NTW 2018 to help raise awareness of the versatility of tiles. Today’s choice of tiles is vast and I am keen to champion this fabulous surface material!”

New product launch exclusively for NTW

Leading tile brand, British Ceramic Tile, is launching a stunning new feature floor tile exclusively for National Tile Week. Full of energy and playful angles, the new Feature Floors Harmony tile is designed to sit alongside the existing HD Harmony range to bring a striking look underfoot.
