Since the long bygone years, tile flooring has been in practice for literally any room. Known to instantly add to the richness of the room, they bring back the artistry and masonry utilised during the medieval era. Floor tiles highly exude warmth and appeal in the house. It is important to select style and colour that you will enjoy for years to come.

Types of Tiles -

Ceramic Tiles:

Made of bricks, minerals and water, Ceramic tiles do not wear out and can withstand any amount of pressure thrown at it. This type of tile is very hard, and the colour goes all the way through the material. They can be glazed or unglazed.

Porcelain Tiles:

Also known as 'vitrified' tiles, they are little more of a high quality tile that is extremely strong and nonporous. This makes them almost impervious to liquid and are waterproof. Porcelain tiles are very difficult to cut and install and the blades are known to have worn out while cutting them. Glazed porcelain tiles are becoming more common in homes, although they are more expensive.

Mosaic Tiles:

The small sized tiles found in the bathroom and kitchen floors and walls form the Mosaic Tiles. Found in many different shapes, they are usually made out of unglazed porcelain. The grout lines in them prevent us from slipping and provide a good grip.

Terra cotta Tiles:

Taking you to an ancient era, these tiles can be either handcrafted or machine made. They acquire the same colour as the material they are made from and have high colour retention.
