If you’re considering updating your kitchen or bathroom, or any other room in your house, have you put any thought into which tile material you’re going to use? If you haven’t we’re here to give you some advice about the different types of tile. We know that the choice can be a little overwhelming when it comes to deciding, so why not narrow it down by knowing which material you want for your tiles. There are 3 materials that you’ll find everyone talking about, ceramic, porcelain and natural stone.
This is the most common tile material in the domestic market. At London Tile, we have an extensive range of Ceramic Tiles available to order online. Ceramic is a combination of clay, sand and water, moulded into shape and then baked in a kiln.
It is important when choosing a ceramic tile that it is fit for purpose, for example some ceramic tiles are not suitable for use on floors.
Available as glazed, unglazed and polished, Porcelain Tiles are a popular choice in kitchens and bathrooms. Also made using clay, Porcelain is fired at a much higher temperature, this improves many of the qualities Ceramic tiles already have.
Whether you love clean, cool marble, dark and dramatic Slate, or soft, light Travertine, our selection of Natural Stone Tiles will have something for you.
We hope this has helped you to make a decision about which tile material you’ll be using in your project! Do contact us in the comments or through social media if you have any further questions.5
