Updating any room in your home is exciting, especially the kitchen, which for many families is the heart of the home. There is so much to think about when choosing your kitchen style and tiles can often be an afterthought.Kitchen Wall Tiles Cape Town
We’ve put together 5 easy mistakes to avoid when selecting your kitchen tiles so that you can make the best possible choice for your home.
1. Overlooking aftercare
Aftercare is so important with tiles, especially in areas that are exposed to water, like behind the sink. Sealing your tiles will make them easier to clean and help them look their best for longer.
2. Not doing your research
You might have your heart set on the exact style of kitchen you want, which is great, but sometimes thinking about others, maybe more practical options are worthwhile. You might be surprised and even change your mind.
When it comes to selecting tiles, we recommend visiting your local retailer to browse the huge selection of products that are available. Bringing samples home with you is a great way to get a feel for the product and see how it works with the lighting in your kitchen, as this can make a big difference on the final effect.
3. Taking shortcuts
Although it can be tempting to have a go at some DIY and install the tiles yourself, tiling is a skill that requires experience and we always recommend hiring a professional. Paying a bit more for a tiler is a great investment, especially when it comes to something like Victorian Floor tiles, as they can be tricky to install.
4. Not trying out different grout
Grout makes a huge difference to the overall appearance of your tiles so it’s worth trying out what works for you and what doesn’t. Grey grout is hugely popular at the moment and a great way to add some definition into your scheme, especially against crisp whites.
