Specialist importers of highest quality Italian porcelain and ceramic tiles for the public and trade.
Finding a tile shop is not difficult, but … which one? Do you have the inclination to trawl through thousands of designs, sizes, colours, makes, etc.? Is this shop more expensive than the last one? Are they the same quality?
Whilst it’s easy for any business to preach about being different, are they really?
Italian Tiles Outlet in Yeadon actually is different – but why? Arran the owner, knows the business better than most and understands both traditional needs and up-to-the-minute revolutionary tile innovations
Arran worked for his dad in his former tile shop since been knee-high to a grasshopper. He dealt with retail and trade, where he cut his teeth learning what is a very diverse industry. The advantage of being young is that he is keen to keep up with the very latest trends and innovations. He believes many bigger stores are set in their ways and stick only to what they know. Also, they can offer what looks like a bargain; however, the tile quality can very often be compromised.
Italian Tiles Outlet specialises in Italian tiles, but only in grades 1 and 2. This means far better quality to start with – fewer breakages, zero imperfections, zero maintenance and no sealing required, but they WILL NOT STAIN – for me that is worth its weight in red wine.
The store also buys direct from the manufactures in Italy, as many tile outlets do; however, as it is not on the high street, with high rates and rent, etc there is no need to hike up the prices. It also offers a graded discount: the more you spend the bigger the discount – up to 25% off prices (which are already the manufacturer’s prices).
Tucked away down a country lane in Yeadon, and set over two floors, the store also displays a few bathrooms, of which it sells many. As a tile distributer that sells bathrooms, you can see what your desired tiles will look like in a real-life situation.
Italian Tiles Outlet sells tiles for both inside and out, for your conservatory floor or your kitchen, bathroom or utility wall; indeed anywhere you want tiles. Its range and pricing structure are exemplary, but, as Arran says, he is the owner and he wants what is best for you, so you will recommend him and return. If you’re a handyman you can buy all the grout, adhesives and tools, and Arran will give you valuable advice, to give you the best look for your budget.
There are two outlets; Arran runs Italian Tiles Outlet in Yeadon and his dad runs North Tiles in Skipton.
