Tiled flooring is a real luxury and is often seen as a building practice with real historical significance. Using floor tiles is not only a very easy way to achieve a stunning yet hard wearing floor, it’s often seen as a necessity by many architects of luxury design. There are however a number of considerations to make when it comes to both sourcing floor tiles and of course, fitting floor tiles.
At Tile & Build, we source the very best tiles from world leading tile designers. Using brands such as Florim, Cercom and ABK you can guarantee that our tiles are built to the very highest specification, meaning your tiled flooring gives a top class finish, and is built to last. When considering tiles for your floor, you may turn to a range of different tile styles, from large format tiles to much smaller mosaic tiles, or even tiles with specific designs like marble effect and decorative stone effect tiles.
Tiled Floorings Do’s & Don’ts
So, what things must you consider when selecting and installing your floor tiles? Firstly, colour has huge implications for the overall look and feel of your room. The colour should be appropriate for the room specification and should also consider the use of the floor. For example, if you’re building for a large commercial project that expects a lot of foot traffic, using a white or light coloured floor may not be as appropriate.
Next, you should consider the tile brand. Many brands such as Coem, Panaria Ceramica and Florim come with a reputation for being of the finest quality, this means your tiles will inevitably be made to last, reducing your time and costs for maintenance further down the line.
When it comes to fitting, you should also consider the need for specific tile types, such as rectified tiles that allow you to create a more seamless finish, thanks to the intricate design work that goes into the edges of rectified tiles. Or, perhaps you want a more grand design, for which a mosaic style tile could be perfect.
Lastly, you should always consider costs and wider cost implications. At Tile & Build, we promise to offer the very best price for our tiles. Since we source directly from the manufacturer, it means we cut out the need for (and ultimately the cost of) a middle man or distributor. The cost of your tiles now may not always be reflective of the cost of your tiles in the future, therefore you should always remember to factor in the cost of up-keep like cleaning. By spending a little more to get a better built tile now, you’re going to be ensuring you make greater savings in the future.
