Did you know that Tile Market offers a sample service, available for delivery via our website, or for collection in store?
Tile samples are a great way to give an indication for the overall look and feel of a tile, and are an essential part of the planning process.
Ordering free samples couldn’t be easier, and takes just a few clicks. Simply look out for the Get A Free Sample button on any product page on our website, and follow the instructions. You can learn more about our Sample Service here.
We can’t think of any reasons not to “try before you buy”, but just in case you need a little extra persuasion, we’ve listed five reasons why your sample will help you visualise your final bathroom, kitchen or any other tiled space!
See Your Tiles In Situ
One of the most important reasons to order tile samples is to give you an opportunity to consider the tiles in the room you’re tiling. This will allow you to see how the colour, texture and finish will work in your space, which is something you can’t get from browsing the website, or even visiting our showroom! Be sure to consider whether your tiles match any existing paintwork or tiles, and compliment your furniture, kitchen appliances or bathroom fixtures.
A Whole New Light
Not only is it important to judge your tiles as they’ll appear in the home, but it is also worth checking how they will look at different times of day. A tile that looks beautiful on a sunny day, may not have the same impact by dusk, or underneath artificial lighting, so be sure to consider all the options, and take photos at every time of day to check for shadows, glare and to see how the colour looks by day and night.
Colour Match Your Room
If you’ve found the perfect tile, but still need to put those finishing touches on your room, a tile sample can come in extremely handy! Whether you’re shopping for paint, fixtures and fittings or even some curtains for your latest home improvement project, bringing that tile sample with you is a great way to perfectly colour-match your purchases.
Avoid Impulse Purchases
Whether you are shopping in-store or online, purchasing tiles can be a little overwhelming, and the last thing you want is to change your mind when your order arrives on the doorstep! If you’re someone who prefers to sleep on their decision, ordering a selection of samples will give you the time to make that final decision, and only order once you are 100% certain.
Be More Daring
Last but not least, the opportunity to order some samples could be the nudge you need to make bolder choices when it comes to your tiles! At Tile Market, you can get up to three FREE cut samples in the same box. Dare to choose that bold colour you’ve always dreamed of, or a patterned tile that you might not normally choose - there’s always room in the box for a more conservative option, just in case you decide that the bold look isn’t for you.
