Implementing Different Tiles in Your HouseLee Johnson
Tiles are a great way to maximise the aesthetics of any room within your house, from your stunning kitchen to your elegant bathroom. However, it isn’t the case where you pick a tile for your room and that’s it. When it comes to implementing tiles in your house, there needs to be a lot of forward-planning, especially when it comes to the practicality and durability of the tiles.
Mosaic tiles are incredibly popular in home décor, as they can come in any shape, size, colour, and material. Traditionally, mosaic tiles are made of stone and are arranged to produce an elegant pattern. Because of its elegance, they are frequently used in bathrooms. As well as this, stone mosaics are great to use in bathrooms as they are slip resistant, meaning that it is a lot safer to walk on than other types of tiles.
Glass mosaics are also a great choice as they are a lot smoother than traditional stone mosaic tiles, which is why they are normally used on kitchen walls to add a bit of character to the room.
These tiles are great for any type of room, making them very flexible when it comes to interior design. As well as this, porcelain tiles are incredibly durable, meaning that they can be used in the busiest parts of the house.
When designing your house, porcelain tiles are a great alternative to wooden flooring because they can withstand the elements such as damp and mould within the house (these can affect wooden flooring drastically in the form of bowing and warping). Also, because of how durable they are, porcelain tiles will not need to be replaced and can withstand any impact.
Ceramic tiles are very similar to porcelain tiles but the main difference between the two is that a ceramic tile is less dense than a porcelain tile. Because of this, they are a lot lighter than porcelain tiles, meaning that they can be just as, if not more, frequently as porcelain tiles.
They are great to have in bathrooms because, just like porcelain tiles, they don’t harbour any bacteria like slate tiles, so they can be cleaned very easily and they are very hygienic. As well as this, they allow water vapour to slide down the tiles rather than being absorbed – this allows the tiles to resist against damp and mould, something that is very noticeable if you have painted bathroom walls.
