Glazed Porcelain: These tiles have all the advantages of ceramics except a little more expensive. They usually have better and more modern designs as factories that invest in better designs want to try to attract them to a more discerning market with more money to spend thus Glazed porcelain wall tiles are amongst the most common new wall tiles sold. The disadvantages of glazed porcelain is they do not reflect much light or at least not to such a deep level as polished porcelain. That being said polished glazed porcelain goes part of the way to overcoming this problem. Glazed porcelain is a great choice if your bathroom is a decent size and your most important priority is athsetics as glazed porcelain has almost unlimited colour and pattern range. Lately many factories are using digital technology to make glazed porcelain look like timber or marble with amazingly realistic results. As eral tip the Italians make the most stunning designs. At TFO the Italian glazed porcelain is well within reach of even the tiniest budgets.
Polished Porcelain: Whilst limited in colours they do have a deep reflection of light and are super hard to chip once laid. They are made with natural porcelain fibers and have a slight disadvantage of looking a little hazy when sunlight glances on it but overall it’s one of the nicest looking products on the market and great for small bathrooms. Many that have used it will tell you the anti slip properties are surprisingly good if used on the floor in a bathroom. This is because unlike a glazed surface water does not make it like an ice skating rink when wet. If resale is your goal this tile is for you Polished porcelain gives one of the greatest bang for buck for any renovated bathroom. They are super durable and long lasting however sometimes they need a mosaic to add colour and appeal.
Mosaics: Mosaics are made from small pieces of porcelain, marble, glass, metal products and natural stone. These tiles are great to create a feature wall, border or vertical strip. Normally super expensive thus limiting their appeal TFO has a wide range at $10 a sheet. The disadvantage of mosaic is they create extra grout joints which can make them harder to clean. We have additives to help you use them in a shower ask us how.
Travertine: A highly sort after natural product that adds amazing natural beauty as no two tiles are ever the same. Each tile has been formed over thousands of years they are created when limestone deposits combine with natural springs underground, this creates an aerated or holy look (has a lot of holes, not religious). As they are formed through absorption of natural properties (its porous) a quick seal is recommended after laying sure seal has a sealer that lasts a lifetime on wall tiles. See the TFO staff for more info. TFO has a large range of polished, tumbled or honed finish travertine with holes or with their holes filled. Either way check out our prices by clicking TRAVERTINE.
Natural Stone: In this category I will include Marble, Limestone and granite. These are natural products that like the above travertine require a quick seal before use. Whilst it costs more to lay than many of the above options, nothing really compares with natural stone. Lately stackstone and sandstone has become more popular as an internal or external wall tile. TFO has a wide range of these products.
We are sure the above has been of benefit to you in choosing the type of tile that best suits you.
