Kick-Start Publishing has launched the essential 2017 guide for the tile and stone specification market, in print and online. The Specifier’s Guide, for architects and developers, includes comprehensive information and insightful commentary on a wide spectrum of subjects relating to the art and science of tile and stone. Content topics include stone and composites, tiles, adhesives and grouts, and other ancillary products. It also features the expertise of editor, Joe Simpson, whose unique knowledge of the UK tiling industry has been honed over 25 years of experience.

In addition to analysing contemporary design trends, the Guide contains expert technical information on the installation of tiles in interior and exterior settings.  Technical contributors include Mapei and Kerakoll, with other respected manufacturers providing their perspectives on subjects ranging from wetroom tanking systems to 3D tiling innovations. The Guide’s initial distribution includes over 22,000 architects, as well as developers, interior designers and facility managers.

“If you think tiles are just glazed coloured squares or rectangles, it’s time to think again,” editor Joe Simpson contends. Over the course of the 184-page publication, Joe and the Guide’s guest contributors, make the case for the “virtually limitless potential” of tile and stone. This potential is truly global and, reflecting that, the Guide provides an overview of the tile industry, not only in the UK but throughout the world; Brazil, China and a multitude of other countries’ tiling sectors are explored for an in-depth picture of the international marketplace.

The team behind the trade publication for the professional ceramic tile and calibrated natural stone sector – Tile and Stone Journal – is also responsible for the 2017 Specifier’s Guide. Further information can be found at or contact Kick-Start Publishing on tel. 01892 752 400.
