How to Select the Perfect Floor Tiles for Your Build
Firstly, you need to consider the obvious stuff, what sort of colour are you going for, do you want large tiles to fill a big space, or small tiles to create intricate designs with? Often, colour will then help you determine a material - if you’re going neutral then why not consider wood tiles? If you’re creating a grand design and need a hint of luxury, you should consider tiles with a marble finish or something similar.
The material is the most important decision you’ll make so think carefully. Porcelain and Ceramic tiles are versatile and can be used anywhere on your build thanks to their toughness and durability. Wood and Stone tiles look fantastic, but you should consider moisture in the area you want to lay them. If you’re fitting bathrooms for example, wood floor tiles might warp over time, so a porcelain or ceramic alternative might be most appropriate.
Whatever you decide to go for when tiling your floor, you should always consider the tiles anti-slip rating to ensure your tiles are safe. Different areas of a build require tiles with different anti-slip rating levels. If you’re building kitchens and bathrooms, then be sure to check to make sure your desired tiles have a high anti-slip rating to ensure they are safe to walk on, even when wet!
It doesn’t hurt to go for a high anti-slip rating across your build, even in dryer areas such as hallways and living areas - therefore anti-slip is something we always think you must consider when it comes to selecting the perfect floor tiles.
