    Default Difference between "Winckelmans" or "Original Style" tiles

    Hi All,

    Another post from the other side of the World in Australia.

    I am looking to buy floor tiles in the UK and bring them over to Oz. I have priced up Winckelmans which seem more expensive in the UK than I can get them here, so not much joy there and certianly not worth the shipping expense

    I have however been in touch with the guys from Originalstyle.com who seem quite well priced

    I was wondering how these tiles compare to Winckelmans? They seem fairly priced but I am concerend with quality as its a long way (and a lot of money) to send these things half way around the world only to find they are not up to scratch when they arrrive.

    I have seen and used Winckelmans products beofre but have no experience at all with what Orginal Style offer. The only thing I have found out is it seems O/Style do not have as wide a colour range as Winckelmans as the design we wanted (Hallington) was offered with alternate colours than what is in the Winckelamns range

    Appreciate greatly if anyone here can shed some light on the pro's and cons of either range

    Cheers....Rob

    Thanks Guys

    If you had one of these tiles side by side (From different manufacturers) would you notice any difference?

    Sir Ramic - These look good. Do you know of any resellers worth talking to that deal with these tiles? I see on the Oldeenglish website that they do not sell direct.

    Thanks
