Welcome to The Tile Collective! We are a family-owned and operated business with over 10 years of experience in the Australian flooring marketplace. You may be more familiar with our former name, “Cheap Tiles Online”, but we have recently changed this to allow us to grow bigger and better than ever before, delivering our service across Australia.
The story of The Tile Collective starts way back in 1992, when our founder, Virgil, started his tiling apprenticeship. After four years of gaining expert knowledge and experience, Virgil completed his apprenticeship and started his first business, Burns Coast Tile, in 1996, servicing over 500 houses and properties each year. From there, business continued to boom!
Virgil creates Tile Ezy Pty Ltd, purchasing tiles from wholesalers and supplying tiles for larger residential projects, working with big industry names including Oracle Build Home and Metricon.
Tile Ezy Pty Ltd opens the doors on its first warehouse, based in Albion. Here, the business continues to grow, wholesaling products through online stores, including eBay and Gumtree, as well as word-of-mouth sales.
Business continues to boom and is moved into a larger warehouse in Herston. From here, Virgil creates a retail side to the business and Cheap Tiles Online is born! Within the first six months, sales go from strength to strength.
The first retail store opens at 20 Kingston Road, Underwood, under Cheap Tiles Online. Virgil purchases a truck to offer customers home deliveries as part of the service.
The Herston warehouse soon proves too small for business demand, so Virgil opens a 900m² warehouse at 74-78 Kingston Road, Underwood. Here, tiles, mosaics, and a plethora of tiling accessories are stored.
Three years later, Cheap Tiles Online is rebranded “The Tile Collective”, bringing in an increase in commercial sales.
The business grows to a team of 20 people, and as sales continue to soar, a 3200m² distribution centre, head office, and design studio are established at Woodridge. A new store is also opened in Brisbane City.
The business is further expanded with additions to the warehouse and distribution centre.
The new Gold Coast store is opened.
