Pointers For Choosing Tile Flooring
Tile flooring can be a great practical alternative to carpeting in any room of the house. It is easy to clean and a brilliant choice for those with pets or dust allergies. Properly cared for, it can last a long time. However choosing the right tiles needs to be done with care, so here are a few pointers.
All tiles are not the same. They come in different grades. This means you need to think about the use you are going to put them to. You will not need a grade 5 tile suitable for a heavy airport, but a grade 1 will not serve you well. With medium to heavy traffic in your house, go for grade 3 or 4.
There are different types of tiles, but the most suitable for a house is ceramic, lino or slate, while porcelain and sandstone work best outdoors. Ceramic or slate will also work well in your garden room or patio if you have one. Lino tiles are best used inside the house. They are easily cleaned and save a lot of work. They will also show off your rugs to advantage.
For kitchens, tiling is a brilliant choice as they are so easily cleaned, but tiles will work in other areas of the house too. They are a great choice for halls and can usually cope with busy hall traffic.
Plain tiles with an inset pattern in a black or other dark color laid in a straight line will make your hall look longer if laid to echo the shape of a square hall, then that will look bigger.
In a room with French windows you can continue the tiles from inside to outside, if you have a garden patio. In summer this will effectively create a larger room. The view of tiles through the window in winter will again, add to the feeling that the room is bigger than it really is.
Tiles can be cut to any shape or size, but you are most likely to buy them ready cut. Most come in Think carefully about where you want to lay them and ensure the pattern and shape of the tile will work with the room you want to put them in. If you want to make a room look bigger you may want to use larger tiles (bear in mind that these are more expensive to cut,) while small tiles can make a small space look busy. Creating diagonal pattern with different colored tiles may help you overcome this.
One great advantage of tile flooring over a carpet is that if one gets damaged you can easily replace it and with an abundance of colors and styles to choose from they are a very practical choice indeed.
