When ordering tiles online, it can be difficult to have a realistic representation of your chosen tile. Factors such as your own home’s natural lighting as well as the materials and colours that will be surrounding your new tiles when they are installed will both affect their final appearance. Viewing tiles in images online can offer you a good understanding of how they will appear however, Perini Tiles always recommends ordering sample tiles online prior to making purchase and wherever possible, visiting our Richmond tile showroom to view full size samples in person in order to make the best informed decision. When online tile shopping though, we can offer some tips and guidance to ensure the very best outcome for your next project, from what exactly to expect when ordering tiles and tile samples online to testing out your samples prior to making a commitment.
