Wall Tile Installation
When it comes to choosing wall tiles, you will have a similar decision making process to floor tiles. Wall tiles also come in both manmade or natural choices, and there is also perhaps more variety when it comes to tile size and shape. Wall tiles allow you to unleash your inner interior designer and to be very creative as to how your wall space is finished. The sheer variety of the shapes now available mean that you can create a stunning effect in whichever room you are decorating. Brick-shaped and geometric tiles have proven very popular in recent years.
Manmade Wall Tiles
As with floor tiles, the great attractions of manmade tiles are their affordability and the very wide range of colors, finishes, and styles they are available in. The three most popular choices are ceramic, porcelain, and glass. Ceramic wall tiles have a very wide range of colors and patterns as well as sizes. The main finishes are glossy or matt. Porcelain tiles also have a similarly wide range of choices to choose from, while glass tiles offer a modern chic look and are a great choice if you decide to do a wall mosaic. We stock a wide range of these wall tiles, and one of our staff can talk you through each type and show you examples.
Natural Wall Tiles
If you are considering natural wall tiles, then there are several options. Natural wall tiles give an elegant look to any area but it is worth remembering that, while less subject to damage than floor tiles, they may need extra treatment. For example, because stone is porous, stone wall tiles will need to be professionally sealed to protect from moisture. Marble is the choice if you want a luxurious finish and it is just as suited to a home as a 5-star hotel! Slate is another great choice for both kitchens and bathrooms and can offer a dark contrast to lighter flooring and units. For a lighter feel, why not choose limestone which can come in neutral cream or beige.
