Tile house was established in 1988 by John Almon, who continues to operate tile house as a hands-on, family run business.

John has been travelling to Italy, Spain, China, Poland and Brazil for the last thirty years to source quality tile products. Over this time he has made lifelong friendships and business partners globally. The tile knowledge, global connections and design integrity has been continuously refined over the last thirty years.

The focus on design, product integrity and passion for tiles is instilled in the tile house team. Our effort goes towards being at the forefront of new design trends, and ensuring a high level of service. At tile house our clients are our most valued asset.
