A legacy of quality
With a reputation for quality products, workmanship and service, Brymac Tiles has been looking after customers in Christchurch for 40 years.
Brymac Tiles’ busy tile showroom on Durham Street, Christchurch is well known, but many customers are not aware that they can also take advantage of the company’s expert tile installation service. For over 40 years, the family-owned business has been importing and installing quality tiles to all types of residential and commercial projects. James Thomson, Director, says, “Offering expert installation has always complemented the showroom sales. We can provide a seamless service so we know our customers will get a great result.”
After outgrowing the original premises in Salisbury Street, Brymac Tiles’ headquarters moved to 42 Durham Street where they now operate a spacious retail showroom, a busy trade counter catering to tradesmen and DIYers, along with a private upstairs architectural studio.
James and his team know that it’s important to provide a service that suits the type of project the customer is working on. For smaller jobs or customers purchasing from the extensive range of quality tiles kept in stock, the showroom floor provides a convenient, personalised service. Tiles and a full range of tiling accessories can be quickly dispatched with ease from a nearby depot and delivered onsite in no time.
The architectural studio is an appointment only showroom designed for customers and those in the trade looking for additional innovative, or bespoke solutions for large or mid to high-end projects. An appointment gives full private access to the showroom and assistance from one of the experienced team members and is often booked by interior designers or architects working with clients to coordinate their tiling design choices. The room is filled with the latest large and small format tile samples along with many books, images and inspiration; there’s plenty of room to spread out. Many of the tiles available do need to be ordered and therefore have a longer lead time, so James advises making your choices early in the project to allow for that. Paint colour charts and samples of tile grout and benchtop surface samples are also on hand to assist with colour matching.
Brymac Tiles’ aim when they began importing and selling, was to bring in high-quality European tiles on the cutting edge of fashion. Over time those ideals have not changed. James says, “We are always thinking ahead to what’s coming next and making sure we are aware of what new and unique products are out there.” The range at Brymac Tiles is extensive and includes beautifully crafted tiling solutions for a wide range of projects catering for feature areas, external tiling, floors, bathrooms, and kitchens in a huge variety of colours and finishes to complement your décor, as well as bringing your vision for the space to life.
Family values combined with a long-held belief in providing quality products and good old-fashioned customer service has meant the company has many loyal and repeat customers who go straight to the experts when starting a new project. The depth of experience amongst the team means they are able to select tried and true tiling systems and accessories with absolute confidence, offering only the best to clients.
The team frequently work with award-winning architects and designers and have supplied and laid tiles in to Master Builders House of the Year winners in all categories. Experience, quality, and a service that can be tailored to you makes Brymac Tiles an excellent choice no matter what size project is on the horizon.
Tile Trends - to look out for in 2019
Composite tiles are a standout trend, consisting of chips of marble, quartz, granite or glass they can add texture, colour and interest to the space.
Colour is on the rise and it means business. Vibrant, contrasting shades and eclectic mixed palettes are taking a stand over the whites, greys and neutrals.
Eye-catching geometrics are beginning to give way to more abstract patterns. For a statement effect choose a small area like a bathroom and go for it.
Wood grain tiles
Neutrals will never die and the latest take on natural tones are the timber-look tiles we are starting to see bringing warmth to bathrooms and kitchens.
Tiles with a 3D element are in our sights this year. Bringing depth and texture, multi-dimensional tiles catch the light, changing the look throughout the day.
