Uses of Tiles

As one of the most versatile building materials, tiles are found in almost every residential and commercial property. Normally used on walls and floors, tiles can also be used for protection, decoration and much more. Tiles are easily accessible and come in a large range of shapes, materials, colours, patterns and styles. Slate tiles for example will look and feel very different from ceramic rak tiles. They can be used for a range of home improvements and installed fairly easily. Here are the most popular uses of tiles around the home…

Bathrooms

 Most popularly used on walls and floors of bathrooms, tiles are the best material as they can be made completely waterproof for the wet surroundings. Tiles are low maintenance and are normally the best choice for bathrooms.

Counters

 Kitchen and bathroom countertops are often made from tiles as they are waterproof and work well in a moist environment. They are also hard and durable so there is little risk of damage. Tiles are low maintenance which is perfect as a countertop material, just a wipe down and it will be clean.

Backsplash

 Backsplash tiles are placed behind the kitchen sink and counter to protect the wall from stains and damage. Backsplashes are best made from tile as it is water-resistant and easy to install. Matching or contrasting colours to your kitchen can be used as an eye-catching design idea.

Flooring

 Tiles are not only used as flooring in the bathroom, they can also be used as flooring in the kitchen or in the rest of the house. Being durable, low maintenance and waterproof tiles are a great option to have as flooring. They can withstand heavy traffic in the living room or hard use in the kitchen. The only thing is that in cold areas the tiles will be very cold underfoot so a house with all tile flooring is better suited to warmer climates.
