.

Mar 2017 – Jun 2017

We have recently completed a major project supplying a number of our Italian porcelain tiles. The Fitz Hotel, Cockermouth have undertaken a full renovation changing the house from residence to a small boutique hotel. The transformation has been amazing.

We have supplied primarily to ensure all specification products are correct to use with tile type and substrates. In design with use of tiles it was key to keep to traditional themes with classic elements. The main tile used where large format white calacatta porcelain with décor tiles and listellos. Landscape beige large format tiles with sedimentary veining was themed in one of the second largest bathrooms in keeping to local area mirroring our landscapes in Cumbria.

We started talking to Cumbrian Homes 3 years ago about supplying our tiles and stone. The quality of the finishes at Cumbrian Homes is fantastic and they go the extra mile to push the quality and service to there clients.

After many meetings with Nigel & Helen Palister the owners and founders of the company, we discussed using combinations of natural stone and porcelains in the showhome. We had to find a way to compliment the property with different stones with use of porcelain. The Tasman planked effect give of the wow factor, then subtle tones used with stone around the rest of the property. We both was in agreement that we had found the right pieces for the showhome.


Full specification checks was made by ourselves on site prior. This service we promote to all our customers trade and retail alongside design consultancy in showroom or site visits.

With Cumbrian Homes check, we advised and supplied Dural CI Matting on all floor areas, with use of tilemaster adhesives. In kitchen area's we supplied Micro Joint Infill colour matched to Grout 3000 light grey from Tilemaster to compensate for additional movement that could occur. We tanked all shower and wet spaces with Dural showerproof membranes.


We facilitated product design and advised the tiler on site Paul Birkett Construction, ensuring correct steps where made on the finishes.

Cumbrian Homes have now had there official opening day with the showhome and feedback on the tiles and stone choice are amazing from clients at Cumbrian and activity on social media. We are working closely with Cumbrian Homes on the rest of the 39 houses giving individuality to each house from with our range. Our personal objective is to create spaces that is personal to our customers, helping to visualise in the showroom or on site, ultimately designing and creating one of spaces with use of tile and stone.
