Case Studies

Countryside open plan living, Forton

Mr and Mrs Tillotson bought an old bungalow in Forton and had BIG plans. Situated with views across the green countryside, they wanted to make the most of the stunning scenery from the rear of the house and garden. They knocked the lower floor of the house to pieces and added a superb extension and completely reconfigured their home.

The first room we will focus on is the sizable kitchen-diner/family space at the rear of the property. Once two dark rooms, now a full open plan living space with an extension, bi-folding doors and views across the rolling Lancashire hills. Light floods through the bi-folds, filling this room with brightness and that, teamed with the light colour palette of the kitchen, creates such a warm and inviting space. The floor has been tiled entirely with Universe Arena - a light, textured stone effect tile. This tile compliments the kitchen units and worktops beautifully and flows through the space really well. Behind the worktops, the splashback area is tiled from top to bottom in Poitiers Moonlight, a 7.5x30cm gloss tile, great for reflecting all that light. This tile sits alongside the country kitchen vibe perfectly and everything just slots together like it was meant to be!

Moving on to the downstairs WC. This space was small and just required some splashback tiles for the basin area. As Mrs Tillotson is a creative sort, she wanted something with character and colour to go with some fantastic wallpaper she was using in here so she selected Bombato Enzo. This 15x15cm tile comes in a mixed batch, full of colour and patterns and even has a rounded, cushioned edge. When tiled it looks like a squishy, patchwork quilt! So fun and interesting and definitely works superbly with the theme of the WC.

Finally, the family bathroom. This space was to be dark and cosy, make a statement and not date. As there is both a shower and a bath in here, they needed something that would accommodate the walk-in shower too. For this they chose Utah Slate, a dark, textured slate effect collection with the matching mosaic for the shower area floor. Two walls were fully tiled, one wall was ½ tiled and one wall just painted and the floor was completely tiled too. The dark colour of Utah Slate contrasted brilliantly against the white of the painted walls and the lighter coloured grout. For an added focal point (and a very practical choice), there were two niches created; one by the bath and one in the shower, ideal for storing lotions and soaps as well as decorative greenery. It was a pleasure working with you Mr and Mrs Tillotson, your home looks BEAUTIFUL!

Mrs Tillotson, Client

We recently undertook a self-build project and had both the bottom floor and all the bathrooms to tile. Steve was really helpful from the outset and just "got" what I was after straight away, picking out a selection of tiles that were all suitable. It meant that rather than taking ages to choose, I'd actually picked most of the options in my first visit - which is great when you have so many other decisions to make! Steve and the rest of the team were great throughout the whole process and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to others.

Melissa Woods, Self Build Customer

We are really happy with the service we get from Rees Tiles. Steve always responds to emails quickly, with a quick turnaround on quotes and great products supplied.

Sohailia Amini, Wrenman Homes

I have had the pleasure of dealing with the team at Rees Tiles over a number of years and have always found them to be knowledgeable and helpful, an all round first class service.

Harvey Bainbridge, Client

We find our relationship with Rees Tiles very professional and reliable. The fact that we can call to order stocked tiles and receive them to site the following morning is fantastic. It means that no job is held up and the turnaround for the end purchaser is smooth and quick.

Jonathan Willan, Site Manager at Halton Mills Ltd.

Looking for tiles for our bathroom, kitchen and extension floor was made easy by the fantastic displays and huge choice of tiles available at the Rees Tiles and Flooring showroom in Lancaster. Steven and Holly were very obliging, offering us their knowledgeable advice on finishes and grout colours, and also allowed us to take various samples home to try. Rees Tiles is the place to go for a wonderful selection of quality tiles with a helpful, friendly service.

Mrs Richardson-Hogg, Client

When we decided we wanted to update all the en-suites at The Sun Hotel we called into Rees Tiles and Flooring by chance and I am so thrilled we did. From start to finish the service was fantastic and we couldn’t have asked for more. Using Rees Tiles and Flooring made what could have been a stressful time so much easier. I’d be happy to recommend them to anybody who requires tiles.

Helen Henderson, The Sun at Troutbeck Bridge

Patient and Helpful with a Beautiful outcome! We were searching for the perfect shades and textures for the floor and bathrooms in our new home, which we finally found thanks to the expert and friendly team at Rees Tiles and Flooring. From start to finish they were wonderful, delivering tiles and underfloor heating when we needed it so the fixer could keep to the planned timescales. Great service and amazing products.

Mrs Wanless, Client

Steve and the team at Rees Tiles have been great in helping us choose what would work with the kitchen. They were really excited when we said we wanted to use large tiles in the kitchen, and this made us feel even more certain we’d made the right decision.

Mr Bower, Client

The team at Rees Tiles assisted me in matching up colours and explaining which would work best in my home. They worked alongside the people working on my house really well and I didn’t have to be involved which made it really stress-free for me – something which is appreciated when moving to a new house! I’m so pleased with my bathroom and kitchen and am planning on getting some tiles for my hallway soon!

Mrs Carney, Client

We have over the last 3 years totally refurbished our 5-star Silver award B&B. Rees Tiles and Flooring have supplied all the tiles for our bathrooms and kitchen and we cannot praise them highly enough. The tiles are top class quality as is the service received from Steve and his staff. We would not buy tiles in the future from anywhere else and would recommend them to anyone.

Mel Smith, Capernwray House B&B

Everyday durability and long-term maintenance are important factors when choosing any product, especially for use in a commercial environment. We’ve used many grouts and sealants over the years but found nothing that goes the distance when it comes to deterioration or discolouration.

Carl Johannessen, Jigsaw PFM

I would certainly recommend Rees Tiles and Flooring Ltd to anyone. From the minute I walked in I was greeted with a smile and received fantastic service. The team helped me in selecting the tiles for my main bathroom, en-suite and kitchen. Rees Tiles are willing to go that extra step further to make sure the customer is completely satisfied – it’s just a shame I have nothing else I need to tile now!

Mr Keit, Client

My mum has used Rees Tiles for years and it was off her recommendation that we got in touch with Steve and Holly. They listened to what we wanted and understood the look we were trying to achieve. We borrowed samples and by having the tiles at the house we were able to decide what worked best in the space and lighting. I especially like the colours in the mosaic, and everyone always compliments on how eye-catching and effective they look. Thanks for all your help Rees Tiles!
