Welcome to the world of augmented reality.

We’ve create new digital services to help you to discover how great our tiles and pavers could look at your place. 

Smart Sample

1. Order a sample from our tile & paver samples website: samples.tiledirect.co.nz 

2. When you receive your samples, at the top of the 10x10cm sample there is a QR code that when scanned will link to a virtual reality version of the tile. 

3. Use your smartphone camera to scan the QR code and tap the link. Then select ‘View in AR’ and place down a single product and view it on the ground in front of you.  


Latest Tile Direct mobile App

Our developers have launched a new iOS mobile application to showcase our products. Limited at this stage to iPad Pro (4th Gen) & iPhone12+ smartphones. Download and experience the latest app from the apple app store here




For many years it has been hard for some of our customers to visually imagine what our tiles and other products might actually look like once installed. We have been listening and have tried many different ways to solve this problem and we’re happy to say that we believe that we have now found a great solution.

Simply check to see that the app can run on your device at the iOS (Apple) or Google Play (Android) store link below and be sure that you have enough space on your device to install the app.

Once you open the Tile Direct app and give the app access to view your environment with the camera, you should quickly be able to see a virtual room that you can change the tiles and other products within. ..


While our mobile app developers have made efforts to create an app suitable for all users, the use of augmented reality (AR) requires a mobile or tablet device with more than 4GBs RAM. On devices with less than 4GBs of RAM the app may not enable you to view as many tiles or may crash. We apologise that the service may not be available to everyone
