How to choose floor and wall tiles?

Blog Top Image

You want to create a seamless flow in your home when using floor and wall tiles. The tiles should appear coordinated to highlight the varied colours and shapes within the room. Floor tiles are usually lighter than wall tiles, but they will share

common features such as lines, shapes, or colour to ensure that they match and complement each other. Similar shapes and patterns will help tie a room together in a harmonious way.

CHOOSING WALL TILES

A sink backsplash and shower tiles are often glass-looking so that they can capture the light and create depth within the space. You can mix and match coordinating colours to add visual interest.

You can choose ceramic tiles that are painted in various designs. Some boast a stone appearance or rustic faux look.

IMPORTANCE OF WATER RESISTANCE

Ceramic, porcelain, stone, and glass are typically used in shower walls. The reasoning behind such choices is that they resist moisture and will last for years if properly sealed. Wall tiles are often exposed to excessive water so make sure that the tiles you choose are water resistant.

 

EASY TO CLEAN

You want to pick floor and wall tiles that not only look fantastic but can hold up to excessive wear. Ceramic and porcelain tiles resist stains well and can withstand deep cleanings.

PICKING FLOOR AND WALL TILES

If you have decided to replace your floor and wall tiles, then the biggest thing to look for is quality. You want to buy high quality tiles that boast consistent colours and feel both thick and even. When you handle a quality tile, you can usually instantly feel the difference between it and a subpar example.
