Who Are We?
We're proud to say that Marabese Ceramics has been in business since 1992 when we opened our doors as 'Discount Tiles' in the Spirella Building in Letchworth. As a start-up company, we were initially a family-run tile store, but we have expanded over the years and gone on to open three showrooms displaying over 25,000 square feet of bathrooms, kitchens, tiles and laminate floors and with a trade counter in every showroom.

Supply and Fit Kitchens and Bathrooms
When it comes to designing your kitchen, bathroom, en-suite or cloakroom, we know that you will naturally have a lot of questions. We're here to help. Whether you’re looking for inspiration or just want to come in and choose your final accessories, we’re happy to take you around our many displays or help you find the perfect finishing touches.
We offer high-quality materials at a fair price, and we listen to what you need. Our showroom teams are trained professionals with in-depth knowledge to assist you with every step of your new project.
At Marabese Ceramics we use market-leading software to create a bespoke design which will show realistic images of how your dream kitchen or bathroom will look. Our professionals can also work from architectural drawings if your project hasn’t been physically built yet. We can help you choose from our wide range of styles and finishes and give you an itemised quote for the products that will go into your new home. Any amendments to the quote or design will still be free of charge.

Supply-Only Kitchens and Bathrooms
Supply-only projects have become increasingly popular for new build projects that are already on the job and they just require sanitaryware and fitting materials.
We understand that these projects can be on tight turnaround times so we provide quotes quickly and give advice on what products we can offer that meet your budget, practical needs and time frame.
With supply-only projects, you can still benefit from the competitive prices and expertise on offer at Marabese as we also look after our trade customers with unbeatable discounts.

Porcelain and Ceramic Tiles
When you step into Marabese Ceramics you are stepping into a world of tiles. We've been in the industry for over thirty years, so we’ve developed knowledge of all sorts of tiles including porcelain, ceramic, natural stone, and mixed material mosaics.
We'll help you pick out exactly what you need to make your home look perfect for you. Our showrooms stock over 500 unique product lines and we can hand out full-sized samples and hand boards for you to match up at home. We always advise you to take home samples so you can see how it will look in your home and with your light settings.
We'll offer suggestions on the best scenarios when to use each type of tile, and we know all about the latest trends. Many customers currently pick out a wood effect porcelain tile to run throughout their downstairs. Marble effect porcelain has also become extremely popular as well as industrial concrete porcelain floor tiles.
Our extensive range of 20mm thick outdoor porcelain tiles comes in various styles, as well as stunning large-format porcelain tiles which can even be book matched.
We import containers from all over the globe including high-end manufacturers of porcelain and ceramic tiles from Spain such as Porcelanosa, Grespania and Dune. From Italy we proudly retail tiles manufactured by NovaBell, ABK and Marazzi whilst not forgetting our British brands such as Original Style, Winchester Tiles.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles
Luxury vinyl tiles have become highly popular in recent years due to their easy installation, high level of practicality and then being so easy to care for and look after post-installation.
We display a wide range of LVT products manufactured by some of the most notable brands in the United Kingdom such as Karndean, Clicklux and Malmo.
As well as our full-size displays of LVT, we can also order you free samples to collect in-store so you can match your flooring to any furniture or worktop samples you may want to offer a contrast to.
Our team of trained professionals can guide you on the pros and cons of LVT as opposed to tiles while you can touch and feel full-size samples of both materials to compare the two.
In addition to luxury vinyl tiles, we also supply a wide range of laminate flooring from brands such as Quick-Step. Their products are beautiful, with realistic textures and colours that make the floor look like it was made from real wood.
Available in many styles and price ranges, we have lots of options to fit your budget as well as your design needs.
We have a huge range of tiling materials available at our trade counters inside all three of our showrooms. We currently supply many local trade accounts based in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, and Buckinghamshire.
We only stock manufacturers that are brand leaders in the trade, so we stock brands such as Benfer, Kerakoll, Ultra, Levtec and many more.
We stock many tilers’ day-to-day necessities such as adhesive, self-levelling compound, grout, grout floats, buckets, spacers and many more product lines.
All our sites hold high stock levels of our stock items so we can also even accommodate pallet quantity orders to help our trade customers.
As a retailer, we have handpicked what we believe to be the UK’s best suppliers in terms of good quality for money products with short lead times, high stock levels and a high level of aftercare service.
We understand that a customer wants to touch and feel the quality of our products so across our three showrooms we display over fifty bathrooms in total and all our sanitaryware products are sold with a manufacturer’s warranty.
All three of our showrooms showcase their own unique room settings so customers can really gauge how their dream bathroom will look before the point of purchase. We’ve tried our best to cover all angles when we refurbished all three showrooms in recent years, so we display many colourways, brands and finishes.
Our bathroom settings range from more traditional brands such as Burlington and Heritage. We also display a large variety of modern products including brands such as Crosswater, HiB, Frontline, and Bathrooms to Love.
The kitchen is the heart of your home and can serve as a hub for friends and family to gather. Whether you’re cooking or serving refreshments, the kitchen should not only look good but also function efficiently, making your time in the kitchen more enjoyable.
If you're looking for the famous slide-and-hide oven or simply a hideaway oven that fits in your kitchen cabinets, you can't go wrong with NEFF's products. They have some of the best-selling models on the market right now.
We have an extensive selection of appliances from Bosch, NEFF, and Siemens as we work directly with these companies to get you the best price possible on their high-quality products, which also come with long-serving warranties.
Arredo3 – Italian Designer Kitchens
Arredo3 was set up to create kitchens, but even they had humble beginnings. With only three founders, the company started to take off in the year 2000 and over time has focused on continuous improvement and innovation. This has helped them become one of Italy's major manufacturers of kitchens.
Their kitchens are 100% made in Italy (down to the last furnishing accessory), Arredo3 have also worked hard to reduce the environmental impact of their own production. Their modern and classic designs are both on-trend and timeless.
We'll help you create a kitchen that suits your lifestyle, with all the features you want and need. With their brochure imported into our CAD system, we can design your kitchen almost identical to how it will look in reality, and you can explore every combination of materials, finishes, colours and accessories so you won’t be faced with any surprises later.
Crown Kitchens – British Manufactured Kitchens
Crown Kitchens have been around since 1946 and are still going strong. They are now a leading British furniture manufacturer and have been innovating and delivering beautiful products ever since.
Crown Kitchens take pride in their ability to cater to the tastes and budgets of everyone and so created two brands which are Crown Imperial and Lifestyle. Imperial is their more premium range and Lifestyle is their range aimed at more budget contact projects.
Crown Imperial offers a luxurious premium range of furniture for those who want their kitchen to be truly unique. You can choose from a variety of styles and finishes, including pantry cabinets with custom panels, multi-drawer larders with integrated design features, or full-height space towers that let you add your own personal touch to every detail.
You can pick worksurfaces that call out to you, add colourful splashbacks, and even choose lighting that's perfect for your needs. With Crown Imperial kitchens, you have the freedom to create the kitchen of your dreams.
If you're looking for something more affordable, Crown Lifestyle is for you. With Lifestyle you'll still get all the benefits of a quality British product but at a more affordable price point. The kitchens are still sleek and stylish but aren’t as high quality as the Imperial range in its manufacturing process.
There are plenty of options when it comes to styles whether you prefer a modern or traditional kitchen. Crown offer lovely shaker-style door options as well.
Lifestyle kitchens come in easy-to-clean finishes and a wide selection of door colours, handles and accessories, you’ll find everything you need to create the perfect kitchen for your home.
