Ceramic and Porcelain
Ceramic and porcelain are popular choices of tiles because of their flexibility and aesthetically pleasing nature.Porcelain tile tends to be harder than ceramic tiles, offering greater ability in design.While both are constructed from clay and other naturally occurring materials, and both are fired in a kiln, porcelain tiles are made from a more purified and refined clay and are fired at a greater pressure and higher temperature.This causes porcelain tiles to be extremely dense, and generally harder than their ceramic counterparts.Porcelain and ceramic tiles are typically found in kitchens, laundry rooms, and bathrooms.
Ceramic tiles are popular choices for kitchen splashbacks, to decorate furniture, and to create original and stunning pieces of artwork.During the production process, ceramic tiles can be either glazed or unglazed, with most homeowners preferring to use glazed ceramic tiles within their home.
Ceramic tiles have the advantage of not fading or losing any of their original colour even after prolonged exposure to sunlight.This is one of the reasons why ceramic tiles are such a consistently popular choice in homes and commercial building, where flooring can be exposed to continuous sunlight, heavy traffic, and sometimes even chemicals.Safe in the knowledge that the colour in your tiles won’t fade over time, you can feel free to enjoy the beauty of your ceramic tiles in the long-term.
Besides being a truly beautiful stone, marble comes in a wide variety of colours with different veining patterns and is generally relatively soft.That being said, some types of marbles are harder than others.In general terms, marble is recrystallized limestone that obtains new minerals through intense pressure, resulting in a glamorous and elegant looking stone.Marble is particularly popular in areas where a more formal look is to be achieved.
When most people think of mosaic tiles, they think of surface finishes in bathrooms, from walls to flooring.Traditionally used in European bathhouses, mosaic tiles would extend over every surface from the floor to the ceiling and even the walls, showcasing the true versatility and durability of the mosaic tile.Our tiling professionals can turn the ancient art form of mosaic tiling into a modern tile project to suit any home.
Did you know that granite is compacted quartz that has taken millions of years to form?Naturally antimicrobial and stain resistant, granite is considerably harder than marble and has a classy, attractive appearance.The perfect mix of strength and beauty, granite will last a lifetime if cared for correctly.Today, granite in all of its colours is typically found in kitchens, offering character and warmth to what would otherwise be a generally utilitarian area.
