Chateau gets makeover
A RANGE of Tilemaster products has been used as part of an extensive tiling project, by Westerhope Tile Centre, at Le Petit Chateau in Northumberland.
The French country manor is an exclusive wedding venue with 31 boutique hotel rooms, bars, lounges, ceremony and function rooms.
A range of stone, ceramic and porcelain surfaces feature throughout and complement the ‘shabby chic’ design.
They include Minster Antiqued Flagstones, from Marshalls Tile & Stone Interiors, and floor and wall designs from Peronda’s Laccio collection, designed in collaboration with Dsignio. Tilemaster products specified included Flexilevel, Setaflex and Grout 3000.
During the installation, Westerhope used Tilemaster’s rapid-set FlexiLevel to smooth and level all floors – inside and outside - providing an installation-ready surface after three hours.
Tilemaster’s Setaflex adhesive, which has an extended pot life of 3-4 hours - was then used to fix flagstones throughout the whole venue – totaling more than 1,400sq m – and wall and floor tiles throughout the bedrooms.
Grouts from Tilemaster’s Grout3000 range were then used to complete the installation, providing smooth, controlled workability and a durable, moisture and frost resistant joint.
