How to choose the right tiles for each space

The design of tiles installed in a room can completely change the look of the space, so they should be chosen carefully. Knowing where to start and what factors to consider can be complicated when choosing the right tiles for your home’s interior. What will you do when there are so many tile options available in the market? When choosing tiles for the interior of your home, there are more factors besides aesthetic appeal. We know that it can be very challenging to choose one of the many good and varied options in front of you

Here is a general guide to choosing the right tile for any space.

Vitrified tiles are resistant to moisture, stains and wear. They come in many forms, including glazed tiles with a matte surface, full-body (unglazed) tiles with a consistent design and color throughout the tile, soluble salt tiles in various designs, and double-charged (double-layer) vitrified tiles ( combinations of two different body color) in the market. In addition to being denser and stronger than ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles are also more resistant to scratches and stains. Rectified or seamless porcelain tiles are used to have a uniform surface after installation. Cement design tiles, which are offered in the form of classic designs, are a good choice for having a different and impressive environment. Porcelain tiles are durable and reasonably priced as a floor and wall cover, but at the same time, if they are chosen incorrectly, they can have problems such as chipping and cracking, etc.

Tiles with a matte surface are slip-resistant and do not reflect light in appearance. And they do not easily show stains or dirt on their surface. In addition, these tiles reduce the possibility of slipping and accidents in wet places such as bathrooms and kitchens by resisting slipping.

Semi-matte surface tiles are another option, these tiles are less slippery than glossy tiles and have more gloss than matte tiles. Tiles with a glossy surface reflect light beautifully, brightening up the room and making the home feel larger. Since the surface of these tiles becomes slippery when wet, glossy tiles should not be used in wet places such as kitchens or bathrooms.

For the bathroom, we recommend choosing slip resistant tiles as they are safe for your family and are available in a wide range of styles, colors and patterns. Avoid installing tiles that become slippery when wet.

Since the living room has a lot of traffic, you should choose tiles that have a low porosity surface and a denser and stronger body, such as porcelain tiles. One of the most beautiful tiles for this space are wood designs that are resistant to moisture and stains.

When choosing kitchen floor tiles, make sure that they are strong, slip resistant, and able to wash various food stains and moisture resistant.
