Derby tiling experts

When you're renovating or redecorating a property and are in need of a trusted Derby tiling expert, it's important that you know you're hiring a reliable tradesman. Whether you want hard wearing porcelain tiles or cheap ceramic tiles for a downstairs toilet, shower room or kitchen, or you're replacing flooring with natural stone tiling products like travertine or limestone, you can find a reputable tiler in Derby by submitting an enquiry form. From imparting knowledgeable advice about the best type of grout and tile adhesive to use, to edging tiles with chrome, brass or white trim 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 tiling specialist near Derby has the answer.

Different types of kitchen tiles

There is a number of tile types available so when you're refurbishing your kitchen with new tiles on the flooring and walls, choosing the most appropriate tiles for your tiling job is essential. If you're on a budget, you could choose ceramic or porcelain tiles. When you require durability, the hardness of porcelain is the ideal choice, but both types of tiles are available in a range of colours and designs. 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 you could choose mosaic tiles with mat mesh backing to tile sections of walls or to use as tiled borders. Modular tile sets are another possibility suited to use on floors and walls and there is a varied range of colours in both travertine and slate tiles you could choose between. For a rustic kitchen or a feature wall look, handmade tiles can look fantastic with relief patterns and individual surface finishes, and metallic tiles can be used to reflect light and provide attractive splash backs.

Services tilers in Derby are offering

Tilers in Derby offer a number of services, from covering underfloor heating systems with floor tiles, which can either be electrically powered or warmed using hot water, to old floor and wall tile removal and surface preparation such as floor levelling and plastering walls for retiling with new ceramic, porcelain or natural stone tiles. Tiling products required to complete tiling jobs can be supplied by specialist tilers, such as grout and adhesive, and they can give advice about the best tile brands and products to select. When your walls are fully tiled, finishing touches can be added such as tile sealant, which is usually applied to natural stone tiles. Sealing tiles will prevent staining and discolouration of your tiles and every year you can receive a quality service from Derby tilers to ensure your tiles look attractive for many years.

Different types of natural stone tiles for Derby

Natural stone tile ranges offer a large amount of choice of tile types that many people like to use on their walls and floors for a touch of luxury work which can be completed by an experienced tiler in Derby. Honed and filled travertine tiles are commonly used in bathrooms and en suites, whereas the unfilled type of tile will often be used to decorate kitchens because there is less chance of water splashing. Surfaces of travertine tiles that are treated with sealant will be prevented from staining or discolouring, but marble, limestone and travertine tiles with porous surfaces are the most important tiles to seal. Sealant should also be reapplied after around 12 months to ensure the surface remains protected. Slate tiles, which can be used on walls or floors, are another popular choice, that provides many colour options and has attractive riven textures. Tiles are available in many different sizes or you can choose modular packs which provide variation in tile sizes.

Suitable tiles for flooring

Despite there being a lot of different sorts of tiles, some tile ranges are specifically for walls, others are floor tile ranges, and there are other tiles that can be used for walls and floors. Textured surfaces are a feature of floor tiles making them less slippery, 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. Borders are also often used with wall tiles to break up expanses of tiles. 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 know you're getting the right sort of tiles for your walls and floors.

Rooms that can benefit from tiling

If you choose tiles, you will have products that can easily be kept clean and that are suited to being laid on either floors or walls, and you can also use them to decorate fire places or to make splash backs. Victorian houses often have hallway floors covered with tiles such as Minton tiles, which look good with rugs on them and can be kept clean easily with sweeping and mopping. Tiled walls and floors in bathrooms and kitchens are commonplace, as are utility room walls and floors, because they are both waterproof and hygienic. Therefore many families with kids and/or pets often opt for tiling on their floors. Tiles are also frequently used for flooring in conservatories because they provide a cool flooring surface even when the room is warm and they can also be heated in winter using underfloor heating.
