Floor Tiles



Floor Tiles

Floor tiles need to be strong and hard wearing in order to provide an esthetically pleasing feeling over the years. These days many people are opting for the natural look of matt finished or un glazed ceramic, porcelain tiles, granite, and slate or travertine floor tiles. This is not only because of the look and feel they provide, but also because of durability and their textured surface makes them highly suitable for floor tiling. As a general rule, these kinds of floor tiles are less slippery than other types of tiles, such as tiles with glassy and shiny surfaces like polished marble, polished porcelain or highly glazed floor tiles.


Ceramic Floor Tiles

Ceramic floor tiles are also popular due to their consistency in colour and the classification ratings that apply to them. These classifications range from 1 - 5 where 1 is the least hard wearing and 5 the most. A rating of 3 could be suitable for extremely light traffic areas, while for most domestic and commercial use, a porcelain floor tile with a rating 4-5 might be in order. All of the tiles we supply at Tile Dealer are of rating of 4 or 5.


Porcelain Floor Tiles

Porcelain floor tiles are becoming more and more popular, we are supplying less and less ceramic floor tiles because porcelain is now more affordable, and our range of porcelain floor tiles replicate the look and feel of natural tiles so well that they look real, but obviously without the hassle of sealing and treating. Take a look at our natural slate porcelain by Unicom.


Floor Tile Colour and Size

Another important consideration to take into account when choosing your floor tiles, is that they come in a wide variety of styles, colors and sizes. Let's look at the effect this can have on the atmosphere of a room, as a general rule dark colours provide warmth and in addition, dirt and grime is harder to notice. Lighter colours can give the appearance of more space as too can the size of the tiles. Larger floor tiles tend to make a room appear bigger. Then there are neutral colours, these are useful if you think you might want to change the decor often.
