Property Restoration

Chic nordic effect tile beautifully restores property in Mapperley

When it comes to creating a wonderfully unified and stylish flow between the important areas of a house – there’s nothing to beat a ceramic tiled floor.

The 1930’s detached house in Mapperley was beautifully restored and decorated – but oh! that downstairs floor.

The kitchen had a patchwork of ancient quarry tiles with surface ups and downs enough to make you sea-sick and the adjoining hallway was covered with an undistinguished wood laminate.

The solution to this mismatch, was to tile the whole lot in a beautiful, hard wearing, ceramic tile wood lookalike – thereby creating a welcoming flow from the front door, through house, into the kitchen and beyond into the utility area.

The owner decided a new floor with a cool Nordic chic, inspired by the stylish properties in the highly popular Danish TV Dramas like Borgen and The Bridge, was what she wanted and contacted East Midlands Ceramics for help with a master plan.

What was chosen was one of the latest generation of wood lookalikes with a fabulous limed grey finish, a perfect match for the existing décor and with an unmistakable Nordic fizz.

emctiles were also able to recommended one of the highly expert tile fixers from the list selected tradesmen they have, to refer customers from.

After the wave-like kitchen floor had been removed together with the old laminate in the hall, the whole area was painstakingly re-board – hallway with a modern, rigid substrate to ensure that the whole surface from the utility room to the front door was precision level.

A satisfied customer said: “emctiles were fantastic and delivered the whole package from the right tile, to the right grout, to the skilled craftsman to put it all together.

“The result is breathtaking. It has changed the whole feel and look of the downstairs floor. It was almost as if the house was just waiting for the transformation these stunning new tiles would bring.”

emctiles managing director, Barry Slawson said: “We are the experts at bringing tile designs to life through our fully integrated service. We have unrivaled stocks of all the latest products plus the highly trained staff to make the right suggestions.

“The result for our customer was a fantastic, modern and hard-wearing floor that will last for years – looking as good as the day it was fitted.”
