Tiling of kitchens and bathrooms, walls and floors

Glasgow Wall & Floor Tiles

Different tiles for floors

Although there are many different types of tiles, some tiles are wall specific, other tiles are designed to be used to tile floors, whilst some can be used to decorate either type of surface. Tiles for floors are usually textured to prevent people slipping on them, which makes them safe for shower rooms, bathrooms and wet rooms where splashing from taps and water sources occurs. Tiles for walls don't need to be as thick so are often cheaper. Horizontally positioned border tiles are also used by many people to enhance designs and break up blocks of a single colour. Tile retailers and outlets will usually have tiles marked up so you know you're getting the right sort of tiles for your walls and floors.

Tiling Services Offered for Glasgow

Tilers in Glasgow offer a number of services, from laying tiled floors over underfloor heating, either installed as electric mat or piped hot water systems, to removing old wall and floor tiles and preparing surfaces with floor levelling compound or plaster prior to tiling with new porcelain, stone or ceramic 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. 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. You can prevent tile discolouration and staining with the application of sealant and every year you can receive a quality service from Glasgow tilers therefore effectively maintaining that freshly tiled look in your kitchen or bathroom.

Tiling kitchens|Using tiles in kitchens

A vast range of tile types are available so when you're refurbishing your kitchen with new tiles on the walls or floors, or even the work surfaces, it's important to choose the best tiles to suit your needs. Choosing porcelain or ceramic tiles can be practical when on a budget. Durability is one of the main benefits of porcelain tiles resulting from how hard they are, however both tile types come in many designs and colours. If you're looking for a more luxurious option, you could try natural stone that you can find in various sizes including 40x60cm, 40x40cm and 60x60cm, or mesh backed travertine mosaics can be used to create borders or part tile walls. A further possibility that can look effective on walls and floors is modular tile sets and both are available in slate and travertine, with the variety of colours providing an attractive finish. Relief patterns and gloss or matt finishes are available in handmade tiles which can add luxury to a kitchen, or for splash backs with a difference, try metallic tiles which look good in a brushed finish.

Rooms that can benefit from tiling

When you lay tiles, you will get an easy clean, durable material suited to being laid on either floors or walls, and they can also be used to decorate work surfaces and create splash backs. Victorian properties frequently have tiled floors with decorative Minton tiles, which look good with rugs on them and can be kept clean easily with sweeping and mopping. Tiled kitchens and bathrooms are commonplace, as is often the case with utility room flooring and wall coverings, which is down to them being hygienic and waterproof. Therefore many families with kids and/or pets often opt for tiling on their floors. Another room commonly tiled is a conservatory, because they provide a cool flooring surface even when the room is warm but they can be transformed into warm comfortable flooring in winter with the use of underfloor heating.

Different types of natural stone tiles for Glasgow

Many types of natural stone tiles are available that many people like to use on their walls and floors for a touch of luxury and an experienced Glasgow 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. Surfaces of travertine tiles that are treated with sealant will be prevented from being affected by discolouration or stains, but in particular, travertine, marble and limestone tiles with porous surfaces should be treated. Increased protection can be provided through application of further coats of sealant each year. Another natural stone tile type that is popular is slate, which usually has a riven texture and can be found in different colours. 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.
