Specialist Tiler

Verbeia Design is owned and run by Jonathan Balmforth who has built his reputation on quality, service and an attention to detail. After years of purely installing natural materials Jonathan became frustrated with the average build quality of the projects he was asked to tile."I realised that to give each client the very best end result the answer was to project manage the installation through to completion".

Concept To Completion

Time, although precious, must be given to building and creating a space which is both beautiful and practical. This requires a holistic hands on approach working closely with other craftsmen to create something special for the client.
From an initial design concept, sourcing and supplying materials to a completed project.
At Verbeia we are dedicated to using only the finest natural and handcrafted manmade materials. Each installation is individually project managed, built and tiled by Jonathan and where possible we only work on one commission at a time to insure they are executed to the highest of standards.

Working Throughout West Yorkshire

We are based in Thackley, near Shipley, Bradford in West Yorkshire, designing and installing high end natural stone bathrooms, wet rooms and flooring in the surrounding areas. We regularly work in and around Bradford, Leeds, Wetherby, Harrogate & York.


Verbeia is the Goddess known to be associated with the river Wharfe at Ilkley in West Yorkshire. There is an alter stone dedicated to Verbeia, dating from the Roman occupation, in Ilkley parish church. The alter was dedicated by Clodius Fronto a prefect of the Second Cohort of Lingones who were stationed at the Roman fort in Ilkley.
