Darlington tilers are offering professional services

There are a number of services offered by tilers in Darlington, from laying floor tiles over underfloor heating systems, either installed as electric mat or piped hot water systems, to clearing away old wall and floor tiles and preparing surfaces with floor levelling compound or plaster ready for retiling using stone, porcelain or ceramic designed tiles. Products needed to carry out your tiling work can be sourced by a tiling expert, which includes coloured grout and flexible adhesive products, and they can also offer advice about the best products for your tiling project. Once the tiling process is complete, treatments to finish the surfaces of the tiles can be used, like sealing tiles made from natural stone materials. This will protect tiles from discolouring and marking and is a service that a quality tiler can provide year on year which will maintain the surface of your tiles effectively.

Which sort of tiles to choose

  • Floor tiles with non-slip textures
  • Mosaic wall tiles backed with mesh
  • Quarry tiles
  • Budget ceramic wall and floor tiles
  • Mosaic tiles in brushed chrome
  • Mosaic sheet glass tiles
  • Luxury handmade ceramic wall tiles
  • Honed and filled travertine linear mosaic tiles
  • Durable porcelain floor tiles
  • Modular slate tile packs

Tiles suitable for floors

Although there are many different types of tiles, some tiles are wall specific, other tiles are made to be floor coverings, or there are some ranges that can be used for either floors or walls. Tiles for floors are usually textured to prevent people slipping on them, which makes them practical and safe flooring options in bathrooms, kitchens and shower rooms where water splashing can occur. Tiles for walls don't need to be as thick so are often cheaper. Another difference to floor tiles is that wall tiles are often combined with a border. Signage and point of sales in DIY superstores and tile retailers are usually present to indicate what type of tiles you are looking at so you don't end up with the wrong sort of tiles for your floors or walls.

Tiling kitchens|Using tiles in kitchens

You can choose from a number of different tile types, so if you want to tile your kitchen walls or floors, or even the work surfaces, you will need to choose the best type of tile to suit your needs. When you're on a budget, porcelain or ceramic tiles can be a practical option. When you require durability, the hardness of porcelain is the ideal choice, but either tile material provides a large selection of designs, textures and colours. If you're looking for a more luxurious option, you could try natural stone that can be purchased from tile specialists in a number of different sizes, and both square and rectangle shapes, or can be smaller mosaic mat tiles that can cover walls or be used as borders. Another option to consider is modular tile sets that can look effective on either floors or walls and you can select from a range of travertine and slate options with various colours on offer. Handmade tiles with designs such as flora and fauna can add a bit of individuality to a kitchen or for splash backs with a difference, try metallic tiles which look good in a brushed finish.

Different rooms where tiles can be used

When you lay tiles, you will get an easy clean, durable material suitable for use on walls and floors, and they can also be used to decorate work surfaces and create splash backs. Tiles are often used as a hallway flooring material in Victorian properties, which mopping and sweeping can clean with ease and rugs can add warmth. Bathrooms and kitchens are most commonly tiled rooms, as with floors and walls in utility rooms, which is down to them being hygienic and waterproof. Therefore many people with kids and pets tend to choose tiled floors. Another room commonly tiled is a conservatory, because they are cool under foot in warm weather and they can be combined with underfloor heating if desired to add warmth in winter.

Choosing natural stone tile products Darlington

Many types of natural stone tiles are available that offer a luxurious finish to a wall or floor in your home and an experienced Darlington tiler can decorate your surfaces with them. 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. Sealant should be applied to any natural stone tiles to protect the surface from being affected by discolouration or stains, but the most important natural stone tiles to seal are porous marble, travertine or limestone. Ensuring a regular coat of sealant is applied each year will protect your tiles for longer. Another natural stone tile type that is popular is slate, which you can purchase from tile suppliers in a variety of colours and with different textures, from smooth to riven surfaces. Natural stone tiles can be purchased in various sizes or there are options to use modular tile packs that give a variety of tile sizes to create attractive designs.
