Selecting The Best Tiles For Your Space
Choosing the right tiles for your home can be a frustrating and intimidating task.
And with so many shapes, sizes and designs on the market, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
Most people simply go with whatever style that looks appealing or attractive to them without much thought about the layout and size of the room or after-care.
Ultimately, the choice is up to the consumer and what they deem to be the best fit for their home and what best reflects their personality.
But TriniHelper has some tips and guidelines on how you can accentuate and maximize your space by your choice of tiles.
What is the Right Type?
Firstly, you need to choose the right type of tile for your space. Tiles come in different varieties but the most popular are ceramic, porcelain, marble and granite.
Which one is the right one depends on where and how your tiles are going to be used.
Some tiles are fragile and break or crack easily. These would be the wrong types to use outdoors as outdoor tiles need to be stronger and more durable to withstand the elements.
Is the area you want to tile prone to moisture? Like near a pool?
Then keep in mind that ceramic tiles are slippery when wet!
You would not want to use a smooth ceramic tile in these areas.
It is advisable to use textured or matte tiles in these areas to minimize the risk of slippage.
