Well it’s that time of year again….. Christmas, the time of joy and happiness and for us here at Rees Tiles and Flooring what difference a year makes. This time last year we were busy cleaning up after storm Desmond totally wiped out our Lancaster showroom. So the start of 2016 was a really busy period for us as we had to rebuild the showroom and retile all of the displays, we managed to get reopen by the end of January which we thought was a pretty decent effort. We would like to again thank everyone who helped us get open so quickly with special thanks to Panararmer Kitchens who lent us some of their joiners to help with the rebuild and Keith the tiler who came and helped tile the displays.
2016 has seen many other changes at Rees Tiles and Flooring as we have two new members of staff in Katy and Michael who both have fitted in well with the rest of the team, we have also started working with new suppliers including Peronda who is one of the leading manufactures in the world and someone who we have been looking forward to working with for a period of time. Peronda again added another award to their collection this year with the Laccio range winning wall tile of the year 2016 at the Tile Association Awards, this award was given just a couple of weeks after we had taken stock of this tile. Many new trends have really kicked off in 2016 with patchwork floor and wall tiles really coming into their own this year, wood effect tiles going from strength to strength and tile sizes continuing to get bigger and bigger, feature walls have also taken off this year with people using different effects different colours and different sizes to make one wall stand out above the rest.
Looking forward to 2017 we are already looking forward to new tile collections and designs with a new collection of metal effect tiles that we have ordered with a look of copper, iron and steel which we are very excited about.
Rees Tiles would like to give a big thank you to all our customers for helping to make 2016 such a big success and would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and have a very happy new year.
Rees Tiles and flooring closes for its Christmas Holidays on Friday 23rd December at 1pm and reopens January 3rd 2017 at 8am.
Once again have a very merry Christmas.
