During any tiling project, there will probably come a time when you need to make a few cuts. Our vast collection of tile cutters will make the job easy! Choose from a manual tile cutter, which is great for ceramic and thinner porcelain tiles, and an electric / wet tile cutter, which is ideal for tougher cuts, such as natural stone and sturdier porcelain tiles.
When tackling a tiling project, whether you're a seasoned pro, or a novice DIYer, you're likely going to come to a point where you need to cut some tiles. Therefore, it's a good idea – crucial, in fact – to have a tile cutter handy. Here at Walls and Floors, we have a huge selection of tile cutters to choose from; both electric and manual. We even have a handy range of cutter accessories for maintaining your tile cutter.
Reasons to Buy Tile Cutters
Cutting tiles is a common part of the tiling process; particularly if you've opted for a herringbone or brick bond layout. So make sure you have a tile cutter handy when you undertake your project, and make sure it's suitable for the type of tile you are cutting. At Walls and Floors, we have a great selection to choose from.
Electric tile cutter
Electric tile cutters, which are sometimes known as wet tile cutters, are perfect for slicing through thicker and heavier tiles such as porcelain and natural stone. They have a water compartment which the circular blade runs through. This keeps the blade cool, but it also helps to keep the dust to a minimum. However, there may still be some dust, so we usually recommend using an electric cutter outside, if it's a dry day.
Manual tile cutter
We also have a fab selection of manual tile cutters, from the likes of Rubi. Rubi are generally regarded as the professional tiler's choice, when it comes to cutters. With a manual tile cutter, things work a little differently. You sit the tile on the bed, with the mark you wish to cut lined up with the scoring wheel. You pull the scoring wheel back using the handle. Then, you operate the breaker arm, which cleanly and quickly snaps the two halves of the tile apart.
Tile cutter accessories
Tile cutters are fantastic tools but, like anything, eventually the blades can become blunted, and they can even break after time. That's where our selection of tile cutter accessories comes in handy. In this range, you'll find a handy selection of replacement circular blades for your electric / wet tile cutter. Also in this range, you'll spot some fab handheld tile scorers.
