Back To Earth

Back to Earth is a natural building material supplier. We're not your typical builders' merchant though and instead work closely with our clients during the planning, designing and building phases of projects.As the name suggests, we’ve gone back to basics, sourcing materials used for hundreds of years but presenting them in a modern format, perfect for new construction and refurbishment. We partner with some of the world's leading natural building material manufacturers. Our intention is always to bring to our clients the very latest material innovations and offer expert technical support.Where we really add value though is with our design consultancy. With years of building experience, we help to ensure our clients use the most effective material systems. Nature creates some very complex materials with amazing properties. The building products these go on to create have some unusual abilities that make them ideal in construction. As the world changes and the climate warms and becomes more extreme, we need to move on from ‘business as usual’ and adapt our buildings. By spending time reviewing building plans, we make informed recommendations about the correct use of materials which will create comfortable healthy and resilient internal spaces.In summary, if you are looking for more than just a builders' merchant, we might be the guys to talk to. If you'd like to get in touch to discuss your project, we'd love to hear from you. We're always happy to talk things through and share our ideas on how to make your sustainable building project a success.Please do give us a call on 01392 861763 or email us at chris@backtoearth.co.uk .

Creative Designer Surfaces

Seamless, waterproof finishes for floors, walls and more... Creative Designer Surfaces’ hand crafted, elegant surface coverings will help you achieve your dream look. As an official installer for Ideal Work Italy, we are one of only a handful of companies in the UK that work with Microtopping - a micro cement product which is industry leading. By bonding cement and quartz with polymer or resin, our products are hard wearing and durable. They can be crafted in a wide variety of colours, textures and finishes. Microtopping can be applied to nearly any surface and substrate. Applied in stages, one coat at a time, a surface is created which is entirely seamless. There are no joins, no grout lines and finishes can be slightly textured or exceptionally smooth to the touch. Our surfaces are waterproof, hygienically clean and at only 3-5mm thick, have a minimal impact on existing room sizes and floor levels. Come along to our stall and have a look at our range of samples. You can see the colours available and feel the textures of different finishes. - If you are just curious, ask away - we are here to help. - If you have a project, we would love to hear about your plans. - If you want more assistance or information, we will help you explore the ways Microtopping will work for you and take you through a typical project journey. New builds, new rooms, refits and renovations – truly bespoke, visually stunning surfaces. We look forward to seeing you at the show.
