Top 9 Tile Shops in Singapore for your Home Renovation
1. Hafary Tiles
Ask fellow homeowners where to buy tiles in Singapore, and Hafary will definitely be a frequent mention. Hafary is a well-known tile shop and has been around since 1980. They retail the largest selection of tiles (over 3,000!) in Singapore. Their robust collection includes many materials and styles such as European, Peranakan and contemporary, that can bring any home style to life.
Hafary has 5 showrooms located across the island, the biggest being Hafary Gallery at Eunos. You can expect to have their friendly and helpful staff help you navigate through their enormous selection and better understand your needs. We appreciated the mock-ups of living spaces that incorporate their tiles at the showroom, giving us inspiration and allowed us to better visualize the tiles once installed. If you are planning to shop at Hafary, download the Hafary app. It allows you to browse online, organise your choices and share it easily. They too have a wide selection of bathroom and kitchen fittings.

Malford Ceramics is one of the premium tile shops in Singapore with over 2 decades of experience in the tiling industry. Despite so, they promise unbeatable prices to their customers. Though Malford Ceramics initially only supplied their tiles to main contractors and architects, we are in luck now that they too offer their selection to homeowners. Malford carries an assortment of Italian tiles, as well as Spanish and Chinese collections. As they ship directly, you may have to wait for a lead time of 4-6 weeks for your tiles. With their unique in-house technology, they also offer large slabs of thin porcelain tiles that can be used for feature walls or kitchen and island countertops. As they have their factory for this, they can not only supply but fabricate and install these slabs for you. They too carry anti-bacterial tiles and eco-friendly tiles.

How to finance your purchases?
Depending on the brands you purchase, the average cost of renovating your home is $50,000 – $60,000. Furniture and appliances like lights will probably set you back an extra $10,000 – $15,000. If you need to take up a loan to finance your purchase, renovation loans often do not give you the cash upfront, hence you may not be able to use it for tiles shopping, depending on whether your interior designer includes it in their quotation. If so, you might wish to consider a personal loan instead. Do note that personal loans have slightly higher interest rates than renovation loans, but you get the cash flexibility. Our friends at Singsaver have compiled the best personal loans for you to check out.
When shopping for your home, do keep in mind to prioritize and focus on the essentials first. Leave the ‘nice-to-haves’ for later, for it’s best to not spend beyond your means. When buying your lights, we also suggest using credit cards that give you rebates, so you get extra savings. Every little bit of savings can go a long way!
