Are there specific considerations for choosing the finish (matte, gloss, etc.) of rectangle tiles?
The choice of finish can affect both aesthetics and functionality. While glossy tiles can reflect light and brighten a space, they may be slippery when wet. Matte tiles offer better slip resistance but may not reflect as much light.
Will all my tiles look the same?
Not always. Tiles can have slight variations in colour, texture or pattern. There is due to several factors including the manufacturing process which involves mixing raw materials and glazing all the way to the installation process where factors like grout lines and spacing can introduce minor variations. The way light reflects on the tiles means the same wall tiles and floor tiles can even look different.
What is the difference between ceramic and porcelain tiles?
Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are popular choices for tiles. Ceramic tiles are made from a mixture of clay, minerals and water fired at high temperatures whereas porcelain tiles are more from more refined clay that is denser and fired at higher temperatures leading to greater durability. Porcelain tiles have a lower water absorption rate making it suitable for areas with greater exposure to water and generally tends to cost more.
What is the best way to determine the most suitable tiles?
We recommend purchasing samples (that can be redeemed as credit). It is important to note the actual tiles may differ from sample tiles due to a list of factors ranging from different batches and unavoidable inconsistencies in the raw materials.
What considerations should be made regarding grout colour with tiles?
Grout colour can either complement or contrast with tile colour. A matching colour offers a uniform look, while a contrasting colour emphasizes the tile pattern. Grout width depends on tile size and design intent; larger tiles might benefit from wider grout lines, while smaller tiles often look best with narrow grout.
