Metro Tiles Toowoomba
We are grateful to Metro Tiles Toowoomba for going out of their way to help us with the Bloom House Flip project.
Steven Henley may be one of the nicest guys in Toowoomba. He is the proud new owner of Metro Tiles in the Bernoth Centre and not only is he giving us tiles at cost price but he has organised tilers to lay them for free. WE LOVE HIS SHOP!!! The same perfection he had in his trade whilst being a tiler for many years has followed him into the shop with a brilliant layout of the most classy tiles Toowoomba has to offer.
Natalie, in his sales team, is also BRILLIANT in helping people find what they are looking for. Natlie was recommended to me by an interior designer as being brilliant at what she does and I would have to agree now seeing her work first hand.
THANKS Metro Tiles for supporting us with your amazing tiles.
