Ceramic Tiles, Porcelains, Natural Stones, Mosaics, Glues and Grouts – you can splash out on all these great products without splurging. They are sure to add style and value to your home.



Our outdoor tiles come in an array of colours, textures and styles.  Outdoor tiles need to be durable enough to withstand the harsh Australian elements, extreme heat and of course heavy traffic.

TFO’s aim is to provide you with a variety of outdoor tiles -with slip-resistant ceramic tiles starting at just $10 /m2


Porcelain Tiles are produced with state of the art technology to emulate natural stones. Porcelain tiles are less absorbent, stain resistant, frost resistant and the colour runs through the whole tile.  They are available in a slip-resistant finish for use externally and are suitable for around pools and can also be used for coping.


Natural Stones such as Travertine, Granite and Sandstone will help you achieve a resort style entertaining area and are perfect for use around swimming pools.

The natural veining found in each piece makes the product unique and beautiful. Many different finishes are available such as honed, unfilled, filled, chiseled, tumbled and exfoliated.

The most popular in natural stone tiles is travertine from Turkey. TFO offers a comprehensive range of travertine tiles, pavers and bullnoses in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. You can use the Tumbled Edge Travertine or the actual bullnose pieces for your coping.

It is recommended to seal all natural stone products so as to keep maintenance to a minimum. Choose from one of the many premium sealing products available at TFO and give your product the perfect finish.



Stack stone, also known as Culture Stone, is a fast growing trend for use externally as feature wall cladding. You can create a fabulous feature wall or water feature to enhance your pool area with the many varieties available.

Stack stones are made from slate, quartz, marble, granite, lava stone and sandstone. The pieces of stone are in most cases in a natural finish and cut into various sizes and glued together on sheets. The pieces are set in a brick pattern and are stacked next to each other. The depth of the pieces within the panels create natural shading and texture, giving an authentic look and feel that compliment nature.


Glass mosaics are great for adding a splash of colour to your pool.  Use them as a border line or tile the whole inside of your pool for a long lasting sparkling finish. TFO carries quality dot mounted pool mosaics from Spain for easy fixing.


At TFO you will find all the glues, grouts and sealers needed for a perfect job, together with expert advice.

Don’t forget TFO is open all through the festive season and is only closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day – for opening hours refer to www.tfo.com.au

    Great summary, thank you. I didn’t know that porcelain tiles are better for stain resistance! Still researching what to do around our pool for the best long-lasting quality.
