TILE DEPOT Chosen As Supplier For TV Project

The Cricklewood store of Tile Depot, the UK’s largest independent tile, stone and wood retailer, is delighted to have appeared on Discovery’s Real Time channel in the new series of ‘Tommy’s Fix It Yourself’.

In the programme, families embark on home renovation projects with the help of TV builder, Tommy Walsh; but Tommy doesn’t do all the work for them - he’s there to advise, plan and supervise the families ‘fixing it themselves’ in order to slash costs by up to half.

The Cricklewood store of Tile Depot was chosen to supply its Mini Metro range of ceramic kitchen wall tiles for use as splashbacks in the brand new kitchen of Lee and Marie, a couple who were filmed for the programme tirelessly working on their 12 week project – a bathroom extension and a complete re-design of their living space including a new kitchen at their home in Kilburn, North London. By doing a lot of the work themselves, Lee and Marie saved a whopping £16,000 on the project.

Filming took place at the store in the middle of March and features Sales Advisor, Mani Brar, who advises Marie on the shop floor and serves her at the counter. Manjeet Thathal, Store Manager of Tile Depot in Cricklewood, said: “We’re really pleased that Marie chose tiles from our massive selection - the Metro and Mini Metro ranges are a popular choice, available in a number of colours. Mani did a great job in not letting the camera distract him too much while he advised and served Marie with her tiles, grout and adhesive.”

To get the best deals, Tommy advised Marie to go to a major tile supplier and in the programme, pointed out that the bulk discounts (35% off 3m² or more) at the store are “good news”. To make even more savings, ‘Tommy’s Tip’ was to ask if the store would take back any leftovers, and of course when Marie asked this, Mani’s reply explained Tile Depot’s ‘Buy Back Unused Tiles’ service.
Marie chose the Mini Metro range in White for the splashback area. She said: “The tiles are perfect, just the right size and I’ve got myself a bargain in the meantime, so that’s brilliant.”

Mini Metro is a smaller 7.5 x 15cm version of the 10 x 20cm Metro range of ceramic wall tiles, rectangular in shape with bevelled edges for added interest from the effect of light and shadow and available in Black, Cream, Lime Green, Silver Grey, Sky Blue and White from Tile Depot, from just 35p each.

The episode of ‘Tommy’s Fix It Yourself’ following Lee and Marie’s project is titled ‘Lighter Loo’ and is the last in the new series, which is being repeated in June on the Real Time channel and in July on Shed.

Tile Depot stocks a massive range of wall and floor tiles in ceramic, porcelain and natural stone to take away today as well as mosaics and borders, wooden flooring, underfloor heating, grouts and adhesives and all tiling tools and accessories. Open seven days a week till 6pm on weekdays, shopping is easy with professional knowledgeable staff, lifestyle displays and the retailers’ useful ‘Loan a Tile’ service. Tile Depot will also buy back unused tiles and its Price Promise ensures the very best value at all times. There is also a Tile Depot Trade Card for local trades’ people.

There are Tile Depot stores throughout London and the South East – in Aylesbury, Basingstoke, Bedford, Crawley, Cricklewood, Edgware, Greenford, Hanwell, High Wycombe, Milton Keynes, Slough, Tonbridge, Uxbridge, Watford, Wembley and Whetstone, and opening in Enfield in early June - and ordering is also available online, at
