When it comes to choosing the flooring in our homes there are of course many options. Carpet or laminate, wood or tiles, making the right choice comes down to personal taste and preferences as well as the room in which the flooring is to be laid. Long gone are the days when bathrooms were fitted with carpet. Nowadays we tend to choose the more hygienic and easier to care for the option of using tiles in rooms that might see more than their fair share of daily dirt and traffic.Tiles For Sale Cape Town
Of course, there are points to be considered depending on which room you are looking to use floor tiles in. What works in a bathroom might not work in a large living area or kitchen. There are pattern choices and finishes to be considered.
A kitchen floor lends itself particularly well to a lively pattern whereas a living room floor might call for something calmer that will make it easier to relax at the end of a long day. It is also important to consider the finish. A matt tile will always look a little more subdued and calmer than a glossy polished one. Another point to consider is that textured tiles will have more slip resistance than polished ones. This point is particularly important where children or elderly people are living in the household who might be in danger of slipping.
If you are thinking about having a tiled floor in your entrance, then you will need to consider the amount of traffic this area gets. A bathroom gets used several times a day, but the entrance is the area used to get from one room to another and will, therefore, see the highest amount of foot traffic. Ensure you choose tiles which are specifically recommended for use on the floor as these will have a higher wear rating.
If a high-end look is what you’re after for your bathroom, then tiling the floor and walls with the same tiles is the solution. It will give your bathroom a sophisticated and classy look and lets the eye ‘travel’ uninterrupted. Many ranges now offer combinations where the same tiles can be used for floors as well as walls.
