Beautiful tiles for your home

Stunning boutique product lines from Italy and Spain are available exclusively in Australia at one of the country’s largest retail tile showrooms.

Di Lorenzo Tiles’ Baulkham Hills showroom has been acknowledged as one of the best of its kind and caters to new home builders, renovators, architects and designers.

Di Lorenzo is an agent for many of the leading European manufacturers and offers a range of gorgeous tiles, mosaics, stone and bath ware. Established in 1983, Di Lorenzo offers professional, friendly service and advice to help you choose a fantastic look for your home.

“Our aim is to focus on current trends in fashion and design, and replicate these trends by sourcing the most exciting and boutique products from throughout the world,” said Di Lorenzo Tiles marketing manager, Tina Di Lorenzo. “We then show these tiles in large displays to make it easier for customers to visualise how a tile will look in their home.”

According to Tina, mosaics are currently making an exciting revival in the bathroom and other areas of the home. “Bisazza from Italy has an amazing array of glass mosaics - from solids colours and bright blends to white gold mosaics with 24 karat gold leaf sandwiched between two layers of special glass. These are ideal for feature walls and kitchen splash backs,” she said.

Di Lorenzo Tiles Colour is also returning to bathrooms with many Di Lorenzo customers choosing feature walls in a strong colour or, for the more daring, bold colours on both the walls and floor.

“Our range of internal floor tiles is mostly porcelain in a polished or honed finish featuring an array of textures and colours,” said Tina. “And the latest trend is for large format tiles with sizes up to 60cm x 120cm.”

Over recent years wall paper has made a huge return to our homes. “We are happy to see architects and designers now also using tiles as feature walls, both internally and externally,” said Tina.

“For internal walls, glamorous high gloss tiles in black and gold look very luxurious, and make quite an impression. We have a beautiful range of product suitable for feature walls, which has only recently been released in Italy.”

The Di Lorenzo range extends to exterior products focusing particularly on large format stone. For feature walls, there is an impressive range of stainless steel, Italian Bisazza glass, stacked stone, metal and tumbled stone in hues of charcoal, taupe and chocolate.

Protecting our resources

With the tile industry becoming increasingly environmentally conscious, Di Lorenzo has a range of glass mosaic from Italy made from 97% recycled glass. This range is hand cut and sheeted, and is available in a range of 10 beautiful colours.

The Ecotech range is made from 80% recycled material collected from the scraps off the production line. It is available in internal and external finishes in large 60cm x 60cm formats.
