Discount tile flooring – Hint number 1

Perform an internet search. Simply type “discount tile flooring” into a search engine like Google and it will produce many pages of companies. Now some companies may claim to have discounted prices, however if their prices were high to start with, then you are not saving any money. This is why you should shop around so you can get a general idea of prices and the quality and standard you should expect.

With any company that you come across, their website should list their whole range. Companies that are very busy and successful, are able to offer cheaper prices as they buy the tiles themselves in bulk. They also may have a special offer every month on a different design or brand. Alternatively a company may just be starting out so they will have special offer prices to encourage customers and build up their share in the market.

Also look for clearance sales, these are tiles of which production has stopped on a particular design or color. There is nothing wrong with them. The manufacturer simply wants them out of their warehouse to use the space for something else. If buying clearance sales tiles, then you will find them delivered in the packaging and of 100% quality.

If you plan on ordering your tiles over the internet, then make a note of which country the company is located in. Finding fabulous discounted tiles is great, however if you have to pay over the odds for shopping costs, then it defeats the object in the first place.

Also try to barter with the company that you are purchasing from. More than likely if you have the cash ready, then you will be able to negotiate a big discount, even if they have already given you 10% off.

Alternatively you may also consider laying the tiles down yourself. There are many good DIY books or guidance articles on the internet, with step by step instructions on how to lay tile flooring.
