A whole new decorating idea to give your home a unique shabby chic look, perfect for kitchens, utility rooms, bathrooms or fireplaces and ideal as a splashback inset, handcrafted by Simply Divine Things.
These are professionally handcrafted using a ceramic tile and Clarke and Clarke English Rose fabric in chintz (pictures 1 and 2). They are finished and sealed with a special coating that protects them from heat, dust, dirt, grease and damp conditions, and yet preserves the vibrant colour and "fabric" look. They have been fully tested to ensure they are watertight, however it is best to still not use them in showers or around baths.
They can be displayed in amongst white tiles to make them really stand out, or all next to each other, and as shown, the pattern continues from one tile to the next. If you require a particular size pattern, for example 3 across and 2 down, then please advise at time of purchase.
These tiles are made to order to ensure the same fabric cut is used. As you can see in the pictures, the fabric cut varies, so therefore each tile will be different.
As each individual tile is carefully crafted (no mass production going on round here!), dispatch will take a minimum of 5 working days, depending on the size of your order. This is because the process cannot be rushed, as doing so will mean compromising on quality.
As these are handmade, there may be the odd minor flaw or they may not have a completely smooth finish. This is part of the design and as you can see, they have been finished to an extremely high standard and are constructed to be fit for purpose.
The back is left uncovered, so it is ready for your choosen adhesive to be applied.
The tiles are available in two sizes:
98mm (or 4 inches with a 2mm gap in between each tile).
148mm (or 6 inches with a 2mm gap in betweeneach tile.)
The tiles are shown in the fabric colour Grey, and the first picture is the colour you will receive.
Fabric samples are available.
They are originally H.R. Johnson tiles which are made in England, a high quality, and widely available all over the UK, so you can ensure if you are using other tiles in the same room, you can obtain the correct ones to match the shape and size.
International shipping is not available on this item.
The Technical Stuff (or the boring bit!)
Where to use: They are perfect for splashbacks, kitchen walls, utility room walls and bathroom walls, however do not use in a shower or round a bath. Extreme heat should also be avoided as this can discolour the finish.
Fixing: Use an adhesive recommended by the manufacturer (H.R. Johnson), carefully ensuring no adhesive is applied to the surface. If any adhesive does come into contact, remove immediately with a soft, damp cloth.
Grouting: Extra care must be taken when applying the grout due to the fine decorative finish. Should any grout come into contact with the surface it must be removed immediately with a soft, damp, cloth and not be allowed to dry.
Cleaning and maintenance: Wipe with a soft cloth using lukewarm water with a very small amount of detergent. Abrasive cleaning materials may damage the finish.
Please ensure when purchasing, that you buy the correct amount of tiles as if you require more at a later date, they may be made from a different fabric cut and a colour match cannot be guaranteed.
A copy of these instructions will be sent with your tiles, so if someone else is fixing the tiles for you, they can ensure they are done accordingly.
