Choosing and Buying
Choose light colours to make a small/dark room feel bigger and brighter.
However, don’t be afraid of colour, which can also create some unique effects and environments in your home. Personal preference is the key.
See tiles as an investment, not a cost; never compromise on quality, which can still be picked up at great prices.
Choose a tile grout colour that compliments your tiles to help blend in grout lines.
If your wall or floor will require a lot of tile cuts (i.e. around fixtures/fittings), choose smaller tiles to give a better flow.
Add extra interest by breaking up your wall tiling with border tiles and decors.
Need floor tiles? Make sure you check that the floor tile wear rating (PEI rating) is suitable for your intended area/use.
If you are purchasing natural stone tiles (i.e. travertine, marble, slate), make sure you get the right advice for sealing and treating the tiles before and after fixing.
Don’t be afraid to ask sales assistants for advice; they will be fully trained to answer all your queries and may bring to your attention things you may not have otherwise considered.
