Topps Tiles is to unveil a new store format this weekend, with improved customer information and consultations.
At the centre of the new format is the Inspiration Centre, an area where shoppers will be able to sit down and discuss the tile and flooring options.
Information points will offer advice on topics such as underfloor heating, while the store layout has been improved to make it easier to navigate the store.
'The Milton Keynes store is a showcase of bedazzling mosaics, choice of woods and laminate flooring, high gloss and anti-slip porcelain and the new Boutique collection of inspiring and beautifully crafted tiles from around the world,' says the chain.
The chain has hired interior designer and TV presenter Julia Kendell (pictured) to offer advice when the store opens on Saturday.
