Decorative tiles are one of the few design elements that can make a statement, whilst still being functional. From walls to floors, there’s a tile with a design and style that resonates with everyone.

With the influx of decorative tiles in South Africa, the opportunities to transform your home are endless. Decobella is leading the charge locally, offering customers pattern tiles that have just hit shelves (or floors) in European countries. Through extensive travel, research and design; Decobella has brought world-class decorative tile design to local shores.

As a spotlight has been cast on pattern tiles, gone are the days that they are only used as a focal point. Decorative tiles are now being used as complete floor applications for both indoors and outdoors with larger-format patterned tiles being loved by bold and daring designers.
