The contents of this site including: product prices, delivery charges and product details are subject to change at any time without notice. We may also revise or update these terms and conditions at any time without notice. Use of this site and purchases of products offered for sale on this site are subject to the terms and conditions posted on the site at the time of your visit.
After selecting your products from the website, you will proceed to the checkout area. You will be passed to a secure online payment authorisation service that will process your card details or other payment methods and obtain payment from your card provider.
We will send you written confirmation of your order by Email, but this email will not constitute acceptance of your order. We accept your order at the time we dispatch the ordered products to you and it is at that moment that a contract for sale is made between you and us. All our contracts are concluded in English although contracts for sale will neither be filed by us nor accessible to you.
Your order will be based upon our product prices and delivery charges in force at the time you submit your order. If the prices or charges are different from those published this will be brought to your attention before we accept your order and will give you the option to cancel your order before we accept it. Please note acceptance of any order is at our discretion.
You can purchase many of our tiles online as a sample to give you an opportunity to see the tile before you buy. Samples only represent an indication of the tile as different batches can contain some variance. A maximum of five tile samples per order is in place and enforced.
We accept the following cards on our website:
- Visa Credit and Debit
- Mastercard Credit and Debit
We will take payment from your card at the time you submit your order.
We use Sage Pay to collect and process transaction information. You can see the Sage Pay security policy here.
The prices payable for the items we offer are clearly displayed on the website in pounds sterling and are inclusive of any excise duties and VAT payable unless otherwise stated. Prices do include the costs of delivery unless stated and which are set out below.
At Only Tiles we believe you should get the very best buying experience. Not just the product and our website, but also when it comes to delivery.
Virtually all our customers get free next working day delivery, no matter how big or small your order is, as long as you live in Mainland UK*.
All we ask is that orders are placed before 2.30pm, so we can pick, pack, and ensure it’s with you by the next working day. Delivery takes place between 8am and 6pm. In some cases, the carrier will contact you directly.
In order to be able to provide you with free delivery, we have had to agree the following with our delivery partners. If your order is less than 25kg it will arrive in a well packed cardboard box straight to your door. Deliveries over 25kg will arrive on a wooden pallet to the nearest accessible location, which is usually the kerbside. It will be your responsibility to transfer them to your house or other location and to dispose of any residual items. The delivery drivers will not assist with this, as they are bound by the dreaded ‘health and safety’ regulations.
- When delivery arrives, please check for damage straightaway before signing the delivery note. All damage must be reported on the delivery note, no matter how big or small. The carrier will wait for a maximum of 20 minutes while you check the delivery. This way we can resolve the issue quickly and with the minimum of fuss.
- If you want to change from our standard 24 hour delivery to something at a later date, then please email us at email@example.com or call us on 01183 403 500 as soon as you can after ordering to re-arrange.
- *Some remote locations do incur a cost for delivery. If you live in one of the postcodes below the cost for delivery is £49.00.
- - G83 7; G83 8; G284 0; IV; KW; PA; PH; AB; DD; PA 21-33; PA 35-41
- - At the moment, we don’t accept orders from locations outside of mainland UK.
- Order timings and next day delivery.
- - If you place your orders after 2.30pm in the week, it will normally be delivered within 2 working days.
- - If you place your order on a Friday before 2.30pm, it will be delivered to you on a Monday.
- - If you place your order over the weekend, it will be delivered to you within 2 working days the following week.

Only Tiles will not under any circumstances entertain any financial demands from our customers for late or incorrect delivery. We always recommend that you never book a tiler or other workman until the goods have been delivered and inspected.
Refunds and returns
The following information is intended as a guideline. We will use our discretion with individual circumstances. Please note the method of refund must be the same as the method of payment.
You have seven working days after receiving your goods to cancel your order. Under the Distance Selling Regulations, if you buy online or by phone, your consumer rights entitle you to a full refund if you request one within 7 working days of receipt. Simply let us know by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via phone within seven working days of receiving your goods. You do not have to give any reason for the cancellation; however, a brief explanation will help us to improve the service we offer to customers in the future. If you cancel you must return the goods to us at your own expense.
Details of our address can be found on your invoice. Please note you will not be reimbursed for the cost of returning the goods.
If for any reason you are unable to return the cancelled goods to Only Tiles, we will arrange collection of the goods. You will then receive a full refund excluding the collection charge. (see section below on further details regarding the refund process)
After seven days what you may view as a cancellation becomes a ’return’, please refer to the returns section below. This cancellation policy does not affect your legal rights.
Resaleable goods refunds & returns
The information below applies to goods outside of the seven working day cancellation policy outlined above.
If you have completed your tiling or flooring job and wish to return any resalable goods we will provide you with a refund for those resalable goods. Please note that only full boxes of tiles will be refunded. Simply return the items within 28 days of receipt of goods in their original condition. Adhesive, grout and tools are non- refundable. Only Tiles reserves the right not to refund if the goods are deemed as not being in a resalable condition. Please note the costs associated with the return of the goods will not be reimbursed. As above, if you are unable to return the goods to Only Tiles, we will arrange collection of the goods. You will then receive a full refund excluding the collection charge.
Refunds will only be processed once the goods have arrived with us and we have inspected their condition and deemed them to be in suitable condition for resale. Refunds will be processed as a priority, however, dependent on circumstances the administration may take between 3-5 days to complete. Please note the method of refund must be the same as the method of payment.
Once a refund is processed it may take up to 30 days for the funds to appear back on your card or other payment method and is dependent on the card provider and is not under the influence of Only Tiles. Acceptance of these terms and conditions at the point of purchase represents acceptance of refund period of up to 30 days.
Damaged / incorrect returns and refunds
We understand damages do occur, therefore to give you peace of mind we have our damages policy as stated below:
All goods must be checked by you the customer - this is imperative. No responsibility for a damaged product, shortages or incorrect products can be accepted after 48 hours / two working days (Mon - Fri) of receipt of goods. If you find any damages you must forward a clear photograph within the 48 hour timescale as proof before we can process the replacement. These can be sent by your mobile phone or email to customer services at email@example.com before we send out replacements.
Where you purchase goods from us that are defective we shall replace such goods or refund the price of such goods provided that (a) you give us notice within 48 hours of the date of your acceptance of the goods and (b) provided that damage to the goods has not been caused by you. Our entire liability to you shall be limited to the price you paid for the goods and we shall not be responsible for any consequential or other financial loss that you may seek to claim for regarding the tiling or flooring job you are carrying out. All damaged goods will be replaced on standard delivery at our cost.
Faults resulting from misuse, neglect, accident, incorrect installation or normal wear and tear will not be covered.
To arrange collection please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting your sales receipt number. Please note that goods can only be collected between 8am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday. The delivery driver will not be able to pick up the damaged goods at the same time as dropping off the replacements.
Checks prior to fitting
We advise you to buy tiles, borders and decors from the same range as the tiles may be sourced from different suppliers which may result in a slight variation in size/colour.
Please check your tiles carefully before fixing. Shade variation is a design feature of most of our tiles. If for any reason you are not happy with the shade of your tiles, we cannot accept the responsibility after the tiles have been fixed. Fixing the tiles to a substrate means that you have accepted the tiles in their present state so no refunds or replacements will be offered. Please ensure you are happy with the shade of your tiles before you start any project.
Description of goods
All images, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising on our website are for the sole purpose of giving an approximate description of the goods. All specifications given to the customer are approximate and intended as a guide only. We always endeavour to ensure all product descriptions are correct, but advise customers to seek technical advice from qualified sources prior to ordering products and any work to be carried out.
Shading and crazing
Due to the manufacturing process products may vary in shade, tolerance and calibration this is especially prevalent in natural products. The variance in colours and textures is not a defect, but merely a characteristic and most natural product will require sealing prior to grouting and may require ongoing maintenance.
