Kitchen and Bathroom Tiles

Tiling is great for decorating kitchens and bathrooms. Tiles can be used on walls and floors in both rooms, so really do provide a versatile surface solution.

There is a fantastic variety of kitchen and bathroom tiles on the market. Kitchen tiles need to be hard-wearing and practical. Wall tiles can be used in kitchens to cover a wall behind a cooking area, protecting it from food splashes and steam.

Floor tiles in a kitchen need to be very tough yet forgiving – in case of breakages! They will take a lot of footfall over their lifetime so must be durable yet also comfortable to walk on.

It is a similar situation with bathroom tiles. Floor tiles in bathrooms need to be tough yet comfortable. One idea for adding that extra level of comfort is to install under-floor heating.

This can be particularly beneficial in a bathroom, as people are often barefoot and so an extra level of comfort is needed. Under-floor heating mats are easy to install before floor tiles are laid.

Another key consideration with floor tiles for bathrooms is that they should be non-slip. The floor of a bathroom can become wet or damp and so tiles need to have a textured surface in order to prevent slippages.

When choosing wall tiles in a bathroom, there is an opportunity to be creative. They need to provide a protective, waterproof surface for walls but there are thousands of different designs and styles to choose from.

Many people mix wall tiles in a bathroom, perhaps choosing a plainer tile to decorate part of the walls and interspersing with smaller decorative tiles – such as mosaic tiles.

So whichever style of wall or floor tiles you choose for kitchen and bathroom, tiling is a surfacing solution that is guaranteed to bring years of protection and pleasure when decorating your home.
