Ceramic tiles are one of the most practical building materials ever made. They have proven their durability and flexibility over thousands of years.
Floors tiled in ancient Rome are still in use today. The Romans were prolific users of ceramics to tile walls, floors and to create magnificent decorative effects in their palaces and public areas.
However, today there are so many tiles for so many purposes that it is important that you choose the right ones for your project. We can use tiles today in every area of our homes. Bathrooms, kitchens and laundries are no longer the sole area of attention. Bedrooms, patios, balconies, swimming pools, garages, and passage ways all benefit from being tiled rather than using alternative coverings.
Almost any flooring can become slippery when wet, and ceramic tiles are no exception. Surface dust can also contribute to this. Floor mats help in both circumstances.
Tiles with a skid resistant surface on a floor can reduce this tendency, but the advantages are offset by a rough surface being more difficult to clean.
How Much Should I Pay For My Tiles?
Always ensure that you buy the best quality products available. Tiles last for a long time and the few dollars saved on inferior product will haunt you much longer than the satisfaction of saving a few dollars.
