Posted: Mar 09, 2019
Flooring choices are an essential part of any interior design. The correct floor can make or break the decor of a whole room, and the wall should always work with the flooring so as to give the room its own unique identity. The color, finish, and the pattern play a part in creating a distinct look and feel of the space. Because of this, choosing the most suitable tiles for your space is very important. The choice of color and pattern does come down to your personal taste, but there is also the question of choosing the material for the tile. According to the tile manufacturers in Morbi, Gujarat, porcelain, and ceramic are the two most popular and suitable materials for tiles.
It can be tricky to make the correct choice in material especially if you are thinking to tile only the floor in one room and maybe the walls and floor in the next like a bathroom. So, here are some helpful tips that will help you in making a choice for the material:
When looking to tile a large space, it is crucial to take into consideration the traffic the area will have and its everyday use. If the place is used by the kids, then there are greater chances that the floor will have a fair share of abuse like scratching, staining, etc and hence the material needs to be chosen accordingly if you are not planning to replace it every few years. Both, ceramic and porcelain tiles are suitable for use on floors, but porcelain is much denser and stronger. Therefore porcelain tiles are generally better suited for high traffic areas.
Porcelain has the benefit that it requires very little or almost no maintenance which is excellent considering how busy family life can get. Choosing the matt option is better if you have children or accident prone adults as it will often have anti-slip characteristics. Matt porcelain tiles are also suitable for use in outdoor areas, and they are available in larger sizes which makes them perfect for use in open plan living and large spaces.
Polished porcelain tiles have all the sturdy properties of matt tiles and are just as suitable for floors. They give the room a much more elegant feel though, and the polished exterior is excellent for use in darker rooms as it reflects the limited light available back into the room. Both options are resistant to humidity and stain and have clean rectified edges.
According to digital wall tile manufacturers in Morbi, ceramic tiles are generally more utilized on walls, but there are various choices that are also suitable for flooring, and they are a good choice for everyday home use especially if you’re thinking of having the same tiles on the walls and floors. They are slightly less hard wearing as compared to porcelain tiles and can, therefore, be used in spaces which may see a little less foot traffic. They are available in virtually endless designs which means you can definitely find something that is suitable to your taste, from traditional and restraint to much more glamorous and elegant.
Ceramic tiles are comparatively easier to cut and install, and their starting price is lower in comparison with porcelain tiles.
