I Unlocked My Dream Home: The Winners

Throughout April and May this year, we hosted our #IUnlockedMyDreamHome competition, where we asked our customers to share before and after pics of their tiling projects. The prize for our favourite transformation? The cost of tiles refunded! Here are the winners – the main winner and the two runner ups. The runner ups will each receive a £50 tile voucher…

The winner: Katie Coleman

Katie won us over with her fantastic metro tile splashback! Her kitchen is built around an original Victorian chimney breast. The void of the column acts as a hood above the hob. She has transformed this chimney breast into an accent focus point; using sage metro tiles to really make it stand out. Their glossy skin and bevelled edge helps paint charm and character into the chimney breast – drawing your eye to it as soon as you enter the room.

Here’s what Katie said about her project: We wanted to add detail to an otherwise streamlined kitchen and love the results. We used metro tiles in Sage. The style of tiles also reflect the Victorian origins of the room.

Tiles used: Greenwich Park Sage Metro Tiles 150×75

Runner Up 1: Lin Jackson

We have chosen Lin as one of the runner ups of our #IUnlockedMyDreamHome competition. Building her kitchen from scratch (as part of a home extension), she created a rural country feel by using raw wooden furniture and work surfaces, with a base of realistic slate effect tiles. The skylights overhead flood the kitchen with rich, natural light – making it a bright, cheery sanctuary she can steal away to at any time. Well done, Lin – we award you a £50 tile voucher to put towards your next decorating project!

Here’s what Lin had to say about her project and order: ‘We visited your stand at the Grand Designs exhibition at the NEC because we were beginning an extension to our house. The representative of the company was very helpful and informative without being ‘hard sell.’ We were taken with the Kuala black slate effect porcelain tiles and on our return home took advantage of a great saving offer. Although we weren’t ready for installation (see the before photo and note the old quarry tile flooring) we were able to place the order and phone up when we were ready for delivery.They were delivered with two days notice – we even used the same tiles for the sink and hob splash back with really good effect. We were really pleased with the finish – stylish but in keeping with our old property. The after sales support has been really good too – online conversations regarding removing a few spots of grout residue and recommending simple cleaning methods.

Tiles used: Kuala Black Tiles 60×30

Runner Up 2: Richard Halpin

We love boldness when it comes to decorating and Richard took no half measures. He took the versatility of our Zellij Patchwork Tiles and used it to the max; applying them to both the floor and back wall of his bathroom. To help dilute the impact of the pattern tiles, he chose to tile the right-hand wall in textured white tiles. Our Estilo Tiles have an undulating, criss-crossing, almost quilted design.
