Leicester Tiles made from natural stone

A range of different natural stone tiles are available to choose from which are luxurious wall and floor tile options and a time served Leicester tiler can carry out the tiling work for you. 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 discolouring or being marked, but the most important natural stone tiles to seal are porous marble, travertine or limestone. Reapplying the sealant each year will make sure the tile surfaces remain protected. Slate tiles are another popular natural stone tile type that can be purchased in various colours and usually have riven textures. Tile shops sell natural stone tiles in a range of size options or there are options to use modular tile packs that give a variety of tile sizes to create attractive designs.

Tiles suited to use in kitchens

A number of different sorts of tiles are on offer so when you're planning to tile a kitchen work surfaces, floors and walls, selecting the best tiles on the market is necessary. A practical option when on a budget is to choose ceramic or porcelain tiles. Durability is one of the main benefits of porcelain tiles resulting from how hard they are, but either tile material provides a large selection of designs, textures and colours. A more luxurious option is natural stone tiles that can be purchased from tile specialists in a number of different sizes, and both square and rectangle shapes, or you could choose mosaic tiles with mat mesh backing to tile sections of walls or to use as tiled 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. Individuality can be added to any kitchen with the use of handmade tiles which often have raised designs, whereas if you want a tile that looks good as a splash back, you could try metallic tiles.

Types of floor tiles

Although many tiles are available to choose between, some tiles are wall specific, others are specifically for use on floors, or some tiles can be used to decorate either. Tiles for floors are usually textured to prevent people slipping on them, so that they are safe for use in kitchens and bathrooms where water will likely splash on them. Tiling on walls is usually done with thinner tiles, making them cost less. Borders are also often used with wall tiles to break up expanses of tiles. DIY shops and tile outlets usually have signs in place to indicate what type of tiles you're looking at so you don't end up with the wrong sort of tiles for your floors or walls.

Professional Leicester tiling services

Tilers in Leicester offer a number of services, from laying tiled floors over underfloor heating, which can either be electrically powered or warmed using hot water, to chipping away old tiles from walls and floors and using floor leveller or plaster to provide flat surfaces on walls and floors to enable them to retile surfaces with stone, ceramic or porcelain tiles. Accessories and tiling products are also able to be provided by professional tilers, which includes coloured grout and flexible adhesive products, and they can give advice about the best tile brands and products to select. Once walls have been tiled, you can use tile finishing products such as treating natural stone tiles with sealant. Applying sealant to tiles will prevent discolouration and staining and an experienced tiler can provide this service each year to ensure your tiles look attractive for many years.

Tile types to choose from

  • Porcelain wall tiles
  • Brushed chrome metal tiles
  • Recycled glass eco tiles
  • Border tiles with mesh backed mosaics
  • Filled and honed travertine

Laying tiles in your home

A hard wearing flooring option is tiles, which are well suited to application on both floors and walls, and they also make attractive work tops and fire surrounds. Victorian houses often have hallway floors covered with tiles such as Minton tiles, which can be covered with rugs to add warmth and are easy to sweep clean. Tiled kitchens and bathrooms are commonplace, as are utility room walls and floors, because they are both waterproof and hygienic. For that reason, families with kids and pets tend to choose tiled floors. Conservatories and sun rooms are also commonly tiled, due to them staying cooler even in the heat of summer and underfloor heating can be installed to heat them in winter.
