Tiles can be installed in a great many places in the home. Different tiles are suited to different areas and it’s important that you understand what’s going to do the best job as well as what’s going to look the nicest when you make your decision!

Take floor tiles, sometimes people explore with mosaic or patterned flooring without thinking about it in the long run. Large, plain and durable tiles are most commonly used for flooring because they can bear the weight of constant human traffic without breaking, they are clear and you know where you are walking. Patterns and decorations will usually be worn off over time and mosaics have too many grout lines where deadly pieces of lego can hide!
