Welcome to Island Mill’s new website – we’re finally live! A bit of an icebreaker: we’re a family business based in Islandmagee, in County Antrim in Northern Ireland, and our speciality and passion is tiling and flooring.
From our historic old mill building we display and supply an extensive range of porcelain and ceramic wall and floor tiles, suitable for any space in both the home and commercial environments. Our showroom also has a dedicated flooring section where we are pleased to offer an extensive selection of laminate and wood flooring, and luxury vinyl tiles. Our product ranges aim to appeal to both traditional and contemporary tastes alike. We’re the premier tile shop in Islandmagee!
Last Thursday, our new showroom on Lough Road celebrated its official opening. Family, friends, customers and suppliers joined owners Flo and Steve as they watched the shop being formally declared open by Mrs Ina Busby of Low Road. Ina is the only surviving child of Hamilton Mitchell, one of the founders of the Mill, so this was a poignant moment for the Mitchell family as the next generation undertake to carry the legacy on into the future.
Coincidentally, it is exactly one hundred years since Mrs Busby’s father and Flo’s grandfather, Hamilton, and his brother, Robert Hugh, opened their blacksmiths shop in what is now the tile showroom. Ina vividly describes how the buildings looked when she was a girl, and what life was like at a time when the blacksmiths and the grain mill were working to serve the local community. Evidence of the brothers’ blacksmithing work is still to be seen in the fabric of the old building today.
As well as the broad range of wall and floor tiles for all areas of the home or commercial space, there is a new upstairs showroom dedicated entirely to flooring. The wide array of real woods, laminates, and increasingly popular luxury vinyl tile range is sure to whet any homeowner’s appetite.
Whether it be porcelain tiles that look like wood and natural stone, laminate flooring that emulates tiles, luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) that mimic both; all in classical, traditional and modern designs, there is loads to see at Island Mill.
Ordering is simple, with goods ready for collection within 3 to 4 days. Local delivery can also be arranged free of charge.
A warm, friendly welcome is guaranteed when you visit the showroom, and if the shop is missing something you’re after, Flo and Steve are always on hand to try to source what you need.
