This stunning entrance in the Bay of Plenty was created by the owner doing DIY with our Stackstone 052 range. She applied the tile using Liquid Nails. We love the rich texture and understated elegance which provides a warm welcome to her guests as they step inside.

One of the advantages of PHOMI tiles is their ability to flex. This means they can accommodate imperfect substrates and even go around corners. We challenge any other tile to do that?!

PHOMI tiles can be used for concrete and concrete block renovation, and no matter where they go they transform spaces. Easily. These pics show our concrete block wall before and after PHOMI. We think you'll agree the results are amazing.

Here is a quick transformation we did in our warehouse office. We painted the top half of the wall with Dulux Mossman Gorge and used PHOMI A series brick 031 from our collection for the bottom half. This grey brick is multi-toned and adds interest and texture to what was previously an uninspiring space. We love that about PHOMI. It works perfectly on interiors and exteriors.

PHOMI is an easy way to transform tired old spaces. Here are the before and after pics of our warehouse wall using large scale travertine 052. The tiler herringboned it up the concrete block wall and what a transformation! (We left a sneak peek for everyone to show what's underneath.)

PHOMI is the perfect solution for tired old concrete block walls, whether on external or internal walls or fences.

Phomi – perfect for pool landscaping

Are you looking to put in a pool this summer or update your existing pool landscaping? Phomi tiles are the perfect solution for adding style and sophistication to your swimming pool area. Choose from our popular slate and sandstone ranges which can be easily laid over concrete for an immediate contemporary look. Water resistant and slip proof, Phomi tiles’ durability will stand the test of time and give your family many years of safe and stylish poolside pleasure.

One of the beauties of Phomi tiles is they can be applied over existing tiles as was done in this bathroom. The existing porcelain tiles were dated and the client wanted to freshen the look without renovating the whole bathroom. Our tiler buffed the porcelain tiles then using standard tile adhesive he affixed the Slate Phantom Phomi tile over the top and applied a sealer. Nine months later our client is still very happy with the finished look.
