- October 18, 2019
Tiles remain a popular choice for home and office, having the benefit of being both practical and decorative. They are made from a range of materials and offer harder wearing, protective surfaces that are easy to keep clean. They are also aesthetically pleasing whether used for an entire room, to create a decorative finishing or as a single feature wall, creating an atmosphere which adds to the look and feel of the living space.
The most common type of tile found in the home because of its versatility and durability; making it ideal for any room. They are available in hundreds of styles, fitting any design and are easy to install and clean as well as being economical.
Another all-purpose, commonly used tile with the ability to emulate natural stone, brick or wood and doesn’t require much upkeep or maintenance. It comes in a range of colours and styles and can be used outdoors as it doesn’t fade or crack. This tile would be ideal for high traffic areas of your home, the bath or as a backsplash in a kitchen.
Some great benefits of using tiles for any space:
Tiles are resilient and long lasting as long as they have been properly installed and maintained. A quality installation can last up to 20 years and longer!
Tiles are Durable
They are tough; by delivering thermal, chemical and mechanical characteristics, they are able to withstand impact, wear and tear in high traffic areas, stains and cracks, all while being aesthetically pleasing.
Hygienic and Environmentally Friendly
Tiles improve indoor air quality due to having no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Fortunately, since tile is made in kilns at very high temperatures, there are no VOCs in the finished product. This makes tiles inhospitable to dust mites, mould, germs and bacteria, which are often causes for allergies and asthma.
Achieve Luxury for Less
Having such a wide choice of tiles means there is a tile available to suit any area of your home/office including walls, fireplaces, ceilings and floors. Tiles serve to express your own creative desires and can transform any space. They are also easy to replace, add value to your home and because they last a long time, are an economical investment.
Before you get going, decide on the style of your home and how you want to implement the tiling. It’s also important to take your room size and the size of the tiles into account. Large tiles generally make spaces look bigger. Don’t forget to choose the right grout colour as this also affects the appearance and effect that the tiles have.
These are some of many reasons why using tiles in your home or office space will make be a great investment.
