Ceramic tiles are really porcelain tiles, just kiln baked at a lower temperature. They come in glazed and unglazed varieties, however unglazed ceramic tiles are a little more porous than porcelain tiles. Ceramic tiles are still incredibly versatile and can be used in just about any commercial or residential space for both walls and floors.
Border tiles are an effective way to add definition to any tiled area. You can use neutral tiles to break up a heavily patterned wall or add patterned or textured tiles to add interest to a block coloured wall. Divide or transform a boring floor area with border tiles and create a sense of sophistication or drama.
Anti Slip Tiles
It’s important to know that there are different tiles for different functions around the home. Some tiles are designed primarily for aesthetic and decorative purposes while some will be used in high foot-traffic areas. While any floor covering can present a risk of slipping, tripping or falling, anti-slip tiles are those which have the least likelihood of causing an accident.
When it comes to choosing wall or floor tiles for any area of your home, it’s hard to beat the versatility and visual appeal of mosaic tiles. Mosaic tiles can be the perfect combination of practicality, art and self-expression. There is such a vast range of mosaic tiles that no matter what your style or design preference is, there’s something for everyone.
Porcelain tiles reflect style and refined beauty in flooring. They’re highly resistant to moisture and can stand a great deal of foot traffic and heavy duty wear and tear. Porcelain tiles are kiln fired in much the same way as ceramic tiles but are baked at a higher temperature. This makes them even more durable and far less porous.
