There are many different types of tiles you can choose for your kitchen. Talk to us and we will help you with the best solution. It is ok if you have already purchased tiles; no worries, we will install them.
Tiles applied to walls are generally quite thin but in some cases they can be a lot thicker depending on their size and whether they have been imported.
The most common type, of which you probably already have in your home, is the square tile but rectangular tiles are becoming more popular.
The surface of a ceramic tile is no longer as highly glazed as it once was as you are now able to get semi-matt finishes that quite often feature a textured finish.
Tiles can also be purchased with two different corner effects – square edge and round edge. Round edges were traditionally used for exposed edges and square were used in all other areas.
Tiles for Floors and Worktops
Ceramic floor tiles have risen in popularity over the past few years in the home, especially in high traffic areas e.g. porches and hallways. These are generally quite a bit thicker and also harder fired than many wall tiles.
As with wall tiles, floor tiles can come in a great range of shapes, colors and designs.
In actual fact, mosaics are just tiny tiles and more often than not are plain in colour, but on the odd occasion can feature a pattern. Most commonly they come in sheets that feature an open weave cloth backing. To lay them, the entire sheet is laid in a bed of adhesive and all the gaps in between the tiny tiles are grouted.
The most common are square mosaics but roundels, hexagonal and interlocking shapes are also increasing in popularity. They often come in square sheets roughly 12″ (300mm) in width and these are then sold in packs of 5 or 10.
Cork, Vinyl and Lino Tiles
Cork tiles are most often applied to a floor space. They feel rather warm to the touch and are soft underfoot and if applied to a floor space they can also provide a little sound and heat insulation.
