Different tiles for floors

Although many tiles are available to choose between, some are more suited to use on walls, other tiles are designed to be used to tile floors, or there are some ranges that can be used for either floors or walls. To prevent people slipping on floor tiles, they usually have textured surfaces, to make them practical for use in utility rooms, kitchens and bathrooms where they're exposed to splashing from water. Tiling on walls is usually done with thinner tiles, making them cost less. Many people choose border tiles to break up tiling on walls. Tile retailers and outlets will usually have tiles marked up so you know your choice of tiles are suitable for the surface you're decorating.

Services offered by Sheffield tilers

There are a number of services offered by tilers in Sheffield, from tiling over underfloor heating systems, which can either be piped or an electric mat, to removal of tiles from floors and walls and preparing surfaces with floor levelling compound or plaster to enable them to retile surfaces with stone, ceramic or porcelain tiles. Any tiling products required to tile your property can be supplied by a tiling professional, such as flexible adhesive and coloured grout, and they can give advice about the best tile brands and products to select. If the tiling work is complete, you can use tile finishing products such as treating natural stone tiles with sealant. You can prevent tile discolouration and staining with the application of sealant and is a service that a quality tiler can provide year on year which will maintain the surface of your tiles effectively.

Rooms that can benefit from tiling

Tiles provide hard wearing durability and are easy to clean, as well as being suited to being laid on either floors or walls, and you can also create tiled fire surrounds and work surfaces that look attractive. 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 walls and floors in bathrooms and kitchens are commonplace, and likewise with flooring and walling in utility rooms, largely due to them being hygienic and waterproof. That's one of the reasons why families find tiled floors so appealing. Tiles are also frequently used for flooring in conservatories due to them staying cooler even in the heat of summer and underfloor heating can be installed to heat them in winter.

Choosing the best type of tile

  • Floor and wall tiles made from porcelain
  • Ceramic bathroom wall tiles
  • Mosaic tiles in brushed chrome
  • Cream and brown travertine tiles
  • Textured non-slip floor tiles
  • Mosaic sheet glass tiles
  • Handmade ceramic tiles
  • Terracotta quarry tiles
  • Mosaic border tiles
  • Uncalibrated slate tiles

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 walls or floors, or even the work surfaces, you'll need to select the best type of tiles. When you're on a budget, porcelain or ceramic tiles can be a practical option. Porcelain tiles are hard wearing because they are incredibly hard, but either tile material provides a large selection of designs, textures and colours. For added luxury, natural stone tiles could be the best choice, which could be 30.5cm square up to 61 x 40.6cmm, 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 these tend to be available in travertine and slate most commonly. 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.

Natural stone tiles Sheffield

A range of different natural stone tiles are available to choose from that are suited to use as luxurious floor and wall tiles and an experienced Sheffield tiler can decorate your surfaces with them. En suites and bathrooms are frequently decorated in filled and honed travertine tiles, whilst unfilled travertine is more suited to areas where it will be exposed to less water and splashing. Travertine tiles treated with stone sealant are protected from being affected by discolouration or stains, however porous surfaces such as limestone, tumbled marble and unfilled travertine are particularly in need of sealing. It is also important to reseal tiles annually so the protection remains. A further tile choice that is popular is slate which floors and walls can be decorated with, and that can be smooth or riven in texture and finish, and offers many colour options from multicoloured to flat black or grey. Natural stone tiles can be purchased in various sizes or you can choose modular packs which provide variation in tile sizes.
