Find out about our Showroom and tile shop Kettering

Make a Day of It!

Hello! Our tile shop Kettering has been nestled in the heart of the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside in the beautiful Glebe Farm estate for the past 2 years. We chose this lovely setting for our tile showroom because it is centrally located with easy access. Situated just off the A14 at Junction 7,  Glebe Farm has ample parking and is a brilliant location for visitors from Northamptonshire, surrounding counties and far and wide.

Our showroom is not only warm and welcoming and full of beautiful tiles, you will find a whole host of reasons to visit this fabulous estate.

From other businesses including home furnishings, antiques, a timber yard, farm shop, beauticians and wood flooring company, Glebe Farm also boasts a fantastic little eatery full of local produce and wonderful food. So it is well worth a visit! You can take a browse around, have a bite to eat and enjoy a warm welcome from us! In fact, many of our visitors choose to make a day of it with a tile consultation booked in the morning or afternoon around a bite to eat and a browse around.

Whether you pop in to our tile shop Kettering on the off chance or have booked an appointment, we would love to help with your project. Bring your plans! And any fabrics, swatches, door or worksurface samples you may have so that we can work together selecting tiles.  We will work together to narrow down selections and follow this with a free of charge set of samples delivered to your door. 

From here, you can either choose your final tiles or, if close by you can borrow full size or larger tiles from us to keep at home and try out. Or we can package up larger samples too and deliver to your door. Whichever you choose, we want you to be happy with your purchased tiles! 

As the owner of The TilePortfolio, I have personally hand-picked all our tile collections from Italian and Spanish suppliers we know and trust and who I have worked with for many years. Our stocked key lines include many tried and trusted porcelain and ceramic tiles as well as the very latest collections. Every day we are helping customers find tiles they love for their homes across the UK. Many customers work remotely with us, and many choose to visit.

Whilst we will never tire of grey, more comforting tones of taupes, stones and sands and are fast becoming the go-to and our Ethos Sand is no exception. New for 2024, this travertine like tile works across the home from kitchen to bathroom and pairs beautifully with darker charcoals and woods as shown here.
