Protecting your Walls and Floors

There is no better way to protect your walls and floors than to tile them. Tiles offer a protective surface that is very long wearing and they also look really great.

Tiles have been used for thousands of years as a way of providing a protective surface in communal rooms that receive a lot of use. They guard against moisture damage and are easy to clean.

Floor tiles are commonly used in wet areas such as bathrooms or in and around swimming pools. This is because they can offer a non-slip surface that makes it safer for people to walk around.

Wall tiles can help to protect walls in rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms. Moisture can severely affect walls in bathrooms and kitchen walls can suffer damage due to food splashes and steam.

Installing tiles in and around a cooking area will help prevent kitchen walls from damage. The area behind a hob particularly needs protection and this can also be done with a splashback. This is a large piece of glass that covers the wall to repel food splashes.

Both wall and floor tiles can be pretty as well as practical. You can purchase tiles in a huge variety of different sizes, colours, patterns and textures. The possibilities are endless with tiling and it can be a really creative way to breathe new life into a room.

So tiles have many fantastic practical and decorative uses. It is no wonder that their popularity has endured for centuries and is likely to do so long into the future.
