Inspiration

Glorious Grecian spaces

When you think of a Grecian look, you immediately think of blue and white. I believe a large part of this is because your mind visualises idealistic images of Santorini where the stark white buildings contrast the vibrant blues of the sea and sky. Tranquil perfection captured in a split second. And whilst I’m referring to the exterior of the homes in Greek towns, the same look tends to flow into the interior of the buildings. A Greek styled kitchen or bathroom is easily achieved with some clever use of blue and white coloured tiles and paint.

Patterned floors are a great way to get that Greek feel in your space, especially those with an ornate or floral effect to them, and teaming them with deep blue bathroom or kitchen units creates a flow of continuity throughout. The best way to finish it off is to go with a plain white for the wall, whether that’s painted or tiled. Our Regal collection, which consists of 2 patterned tiles in a blue and white colourway, is perfect for a decorative, Grecian floor. Using these alongside a tile such as Sokar Bianco or Poitiers White, give a more contemporary finish as they’re a longer rectangular style. Both of these are gloss finish so they reflect the light and instantly brighten a room.

Or maybe you fancy bringing in a bit more blue to the space and keeping the rest bright and airy? This could work really well in a kitchen area with decorative splash backs featuring traditional patterned blue tiles such as ‘Milano’ or in a bathroom as a feature wall or panel like ‘Metallic Blue’. Getting creative with a colour scheme is a perfect opportunity to bring in a theme to a room and, by using blue and white, you can really create an eye-catching pop of colour whilst retaining that Grecian look we so dearly love. Another fantastic tile that can be used is ‘Art Seurat’ by Pamesa as it has a floral and simplistic design similar to that of Grecian style, but it is contemporary and delicate so works really well in creating a focal point without being too overpowering. Compliment this with a simplistic white colour scheme and you are well on your way to creating that Greek vibe bathroom or kitchen.

What about going for a full blown, wow factor bathroom and use patterned tiles all over the walls? Be bold and make a statement? There are so many brilliant factories on the continent for sourcing interesting, patterned tiles, ideal for creating unique looks in a room - a wonderful plethora of blue coloured décor tiles out there that you can use to bring a little bit of Greek into your home. Whether it’s a glossy, patterned tile like the Taverna, a subtle floral design like Carino both by Mainzu, or a striking star design like Meraki by Bestile, you can really go to town with a blue statement tile.

Testimonials

I cannot speak highly enough of Rees Tiles. True professionals with an eye for detail. From initial consultation along with help with choices and designs which fitted perfectly with our vision. This professionalism continued throughout or project, they really did go above and beyond and were available for advice no matter how small at all times! If you are looking for quality both in product and service, then look no further. Honestly, we love them!

Robert Mason, Quite Simply French

The team at Rees Tiles were super. They were really helpful when choosing our tiles for 3 rooms in our refurb.

We felt very confident when chatting to Holly and Steve about our ideas. They provided invaluable advice about all of the types of tiles we wanted. They were very friendly and gave us time to think about our ideas, even allowing us to bring in our kitchen cupboards to match the colours perfectly. Thank you!

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!
