Different types of natural stone tiles for Blackburn

There are a large number of different types of natural stone tiles that are suited to use as luxurious floor and wall tiles and that can be applied by an experienced Blackburn tiler. Bathroom and en suite decor can be transformed with the use of filled and honed travertine tiles, whereas the unfilled type of tile will often be used to decorate kitchens because there is less chance of water splashing. Application of natural stone tile sealant should be carried out to prevent surface damage from staining or discolouring, but the most important natural stone tiles to seal are porous marble, travertine or limestone. It is also important to reseal tiles annually so the protection remains. Slate is a popular tile material suited to both wall and floors which you can purchase from tile suppliers in a variety of colours and with different textures, from smooth to riven surfaces. Tile suppliers and DIY stores offer tiles in a variety of different sizes or even as modular packs containing a variety of sized pieces.

Tiling services in Blackburn

When remodelling or refurbishing the interior decor in your home and you want to find Blackburn a quality tiler, you want to know you can rely on the tradesman you're employing. Whether you need porcelain tiles or ceramic tiles for a downstairs toilet, shower room or kitchen, or natural stone tiles are being laid on your floor like marble or slate, you will find that contacting a reputable tiling expert in Blackburn is easy when you send your job details through on the simple enquiry form. From advising about different types of adhesive and grout, to using tile trim and borders to neaten rough edges of tiles and using strips to seal along baths and showers, boxing in ugly pipework in bathrooms and kitchens to combining various coloured tiles in different directions to create attractive tile designs, a local tiling specialist can provide the solution.

Kitchen tiles

You can choose from a number of different tile types, so if you're looking to retile your kitchen floors, walls or to create splash backs, you'll need to select the best type of tiles. A practical option when on a budget is to choose ceramic or porcelain tiles. Porcelain tiles are hard wearing because they are incredibly hard, but either tile material provides a large selection of designs, textures and colours. If you want to add a little bit of luxury to your kitchen, natural stone tiles could be the solution, which can either be full size tiles, smaller square tiles or mosaic tiles on a mat. Modular sets of tiles are effective wall decor options and you can choose between various coloured slate and travertine products. Individuality can be added to any kitchen with the use of handmade tiles which often have raised designs, or there are metallic tiles, often available in mosaic tile sheets, which can provide a clean fresh look and work well as splash backs.

Tiles suitable for floors

Despite there being a lot of different sorts of tiles, some ranges of tiles are only for application on walls, other tiles are made to be floor coverings, or some tiles can be used to decorate either. Textured surfaces are a feature of floor tiles making them less slippery, so that they are safe for use in kitchens and bathrooms where water splashing can occur. When tiling walls, the tiles tend to be thinner, which also makes them cheaper in general. Many people choose border tiles to break up tiling on walls. Tiles are usually marked up in a DIY store or tile shop so you know whether they are for walls or floors.

Laying tiles in your home

If you choose tiles, you will have products that can easily be kept clean and that are well suited to application on both floors and walls, and you can also create tiled fire surrounds and work surfaces that look attractive. Victorian houses often have hallway floors covered with tiles such as Minton tiles, which can easily be mopped or swept and rugs can be used to cover them if you wish. Tiled kitchens and bathrooms are commonplace, as is often the case with utility room flooring and wall coverings, as a result of them being waterproof and hygienic. That's one of the reasons why families find tiled floors so appealing. Sun rooms and conservatories are also decorated frequently with tiles, because tiles provide a cool surface for warm summer weather but they can be transformed into warm comfortable flooring in winter with the use of underfloor heating.

Services tilers in Blackburn are offering

There is a range of services that tilers in Blackburn provide, from tiling over underfloor heating systems, which can either be electrically powered or warmed using hot water, to clearing away old wall and floor tiles and surface preparation such as floor levelling and plastering walls prior to tiling with new porcelain, stone or ceramic tiles. Products needed to carry out your tiling work can be sourced by a tiling expert, such as specialist adhesives and tile grout, in addition to being able to give product advice about the most suitable brand for your tiling work. When your walls are fully tiled, finishing touches can be added like sealing tiles made from natural stone materials. This will protect tiles from discolouring and marking and regular treatment services can be provided by quality Blackburn tilers to leave the surface of your tiles protected and looking beautiful for years.
