Floor Tile Ideas from Walls and Floors
Floor tiles can be incorporated into many different rooms in your home. From your kitchen to your bathroom, tiles are a versatile floor covering that come in a range of designs to suit every taste.
For easy cleaning and durability, floor tiles are a convenient alternative to carpet, particularly if you have small children that are likely to spill. They will make it easy for cleaning up any mess and also give you a strong, long-lasting surface that can withstand a fair amount of everyday use.
If you want to tile your bathroom, you'll find a huge selection to choose from, allowing you to incorporate the tiles into a number of different themes. You can easily have the tiling continue from the floors to the walls, blending seamlessly to create a slick, chic design.
The widest range of tile colours and finishes
You can have any and every colour and design. Whether you want a light, airy subtle look or a bold, bright and funky theme, you'll find patterns, shades and sizes to cater to your every need. Don't be afraid to experiment with using different coloured tiles and make a mosaic effect for one of your floors.
If you're looking to incorporate tiles into your commercial premises, this is no problem. Large-scale orders are just as welcome and as easily handled as a small order for an en-suite bathroom. If you're looking to tile on a budget, you'll find everything you need, in the same way as you will if you're trying to create a no-expense-spared, luxury space.
Quick and easy floor tiling
Tiling is a very easy process if done correctly so be sure to take your time to get it right. Stock up on spacers and grout to make sure you position the tiles correctly on the floor. Your grout will help to seal the tiles together and provide a watertight surface suitable for kitchens, bathrooms and any other room that takes your fancy.
Ensure you apply the adhesive evenly and affix the tiles in a logical order. Stick to doing a row at a time so you can ensure they all line up correctly. If one of the tiles is sitting too high, use a rubber hammer and some wood to level it down. Similarly, if one sits too low, remove it immediately, reapply the adhesive and place the tile again. Use a spirit level to ensure all the tiles sit level otherwise you may end up with an uneven floor.
