Choosing the best type of tile

  • Terracotta kitchen floor tiles
  • Budget ceramic wall and floor tiles
  • Floor tiles with non-slip textures
  • Border tiles with mesh backed mosaics
  • Cream and brown travertine tiles
  • Brushed chrome metal tiles

  • Durable porcelain floor tiles

Different types of kitchen tiles

A vast range of tile types are available so if you want to tile your kitchen work tops, walls or flooring, choosing the most appropriate tiles for your tiling job is essential. A practical option when on a budget is to choose ceramic or porcelain tiles. Porcelain tiles are hard wearing because they are incredibly hard, however tiles made from either type of material can be purchased with various designs and with glazed or textured surfaces. If you're looking for a more luxurious option, you could try natural stone which are available in many different sizes, or mesh backed travertine mosaics can be used to create borders or part tile walls. 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. Relief patterns and gloss or matt finishes are available in handmade tiles which can add luxury to a kitchen, whilst metallic tiles can reflect light and look good as splash backs.

Suitable tiles for flooring

Although there are many different types of tiles, some ranges of tiles are only for application on walls, other tiles are designed to be used to tile floors, whilst either wall or floor surfaces can be decorated with other tile ranges. Tiles for floors are usually textured to prevent people slipping on them, to make them practical for use in utility rooms, kitchens and bathrooms 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 whether they are for walls or floors.

Different rooms where tiles can be used

Tiles are an easy to clean and durable material suitable for use on walls and floors, and you can also create tiled fire surrounds and work surfaces that look attractive. Hallways in Victorian homes are often covered with tiles, which look good with rugs on them and can be kept clean easily with sweeping and mopping. Kitchens and bathrooms are commonly tiled and likewise 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. Conservatories and sun rooms are also commonly tiled, because they provide a cool flooring surface even when the room is warm and by installing underfloor heating systems, warmth can be provided in winter.

Choosing natural stone tile products Durham

Many types of natural stone tiles are available that offer a luxurious finish to a wall or floor in your home and an experienced Durham tiler can decorate your surfaces with them. Filled and honed travertine is popular for use in shower rooms and bathrooms, whereas the unfilled type of tile will often be used to decorate kitchens because there is less chance of water splashing. Applying natural stone sealant to the face of the tiles protects tiles from marking and discolouration, however tumbled marble and limestone or porous travertine are the most important tile surfaces to seal. Sealant should also be reapplied after around 12 months to ensure the surface remains protected. Another natural stone tile type that is popular is slate, which usually has a riven texture and can be found in different colours. You can choose natural stone tiles in a large number of different sizes whilst choosing modular packs of tiles give the opportunity to create tile designs with different sized pieces of stone.

Durham tilers are offering professional services

Tilers in Durham offer a number of services, from laying floor tiles over underfloor heating systems, either installed as electric mat or piped hot water systems, to removing old wall and floor tiles and levelling floors and walls with plaster and screed to prepare walls ready for retiling using stone, porcelain or ceramic designed tiles. Tiling products required to complete tiling jobs can be supplied by specialist tilers, such as specialist adhesives and tile grout, and they can also offer advice about the best products for your tiling project. Once the tiling process is complete, you can use tile finishing products such as tile sealant, which is usually applied to natural stone tiles. Sealing tiles will prevent staining and discolouration of your tiles and regular treatment services can be provided by quality Durham tilers which will maintain the surface of your tiles effectively.
