From cheap to luxurious: prices for tiles


Tiles have become increasingly expensive due to increasing global trade in recent years. From Asia come cheap products whose price per square meter is in the single digit range. Quality goods according to European standards start at twenty euros.

Standardized quality

In the field of outdoor tiles, which must be frost-proof, only the products awarded the stylized Eisblume guarantee durability. The same applies to the sorting into abrasion classes, slip resistance values ​​and the categorization of the water absorption capacity.
