Porcelain and Ceramic Floor Tiles, Wall Tiles and Kitchen Wall Tiles
Tiles are made from Porcelain, Ceramic and Natural Stone.
Porcelain tiles can be put on both floors and walls, they are a harder material than ceramic and therefore the better choice when looking to tile high traffic areas such as hallways, porches, conservatories and kitchen floors. Most porcelain tiles are suitable for external use. There is a multitude of choice with colour, size and finish.
Ceramic floor tiles are also a popular choice. They are not as hard as porcelain and therefore better suited to low traffic areas. They are suitable for use in other areas, but may be susceptible to scratching and chipping.
Wall tiles can be made from porcelain, ceramic or natural stone, you can put just about anything on a wall, providing the walls are prepared correctly and that the correct adhesives are used.
The general rule is you can put a floor tile on the wall but you can’t put a wall tile on the floor.
Kitchen Wall Tiles
Kitchen Wall Tiles tend to be smaller than bathroom wall tiles ranging from 10x10cm to 10x30cm, they are made from porcelain, ceramic and natural stone.
Generally these are small glass, stone, metal or shell products which are produced on a mesh background which can be cut to size. They are supplied on a sheet 30cm x 30cm and can be used as a feature or as a border.
Mosaic tiles can make a plain tile look stunning and give individuality to any space, they are suitable for most applications including in showers, kitchens and on floors.
