You may think that buying floor tiles may be a simple thing. But in reality just asking a shopkeeper to show you their bestselling floor tiles or just simply surfing to the ‘floor tiles’ category of a local tiles company’s website is not sufficient.
If you really want to go for online searching for tiles, you may type floor tilers with your location, for example, type ‘floor tiler Perth’ on search engine, if you are searching for tilers in Perth.
If you really want to buy the right kind of floor tiles that suits your style and are durable too, then there are some things that you really need to consider. These are mentioned as below:
To begin with you should choose the right colour scheme for your floors. If your rooms are small in size and dark then you must select tiles of light colour. And if your rooms are bigger and have plenty of light then you can choose tile of darker shades like grey or wood.
There are many certified Floor tile contractor in Perth that can help you in choosing the right tile for your bathroom or living space.
If you are thinking of using tiles of latest colours and designs then don’t worry about the colours in contrast to the size of your room.
Tip: Install the tiles that you want in just one room and see how it looks before planning to redo your entire home.
Do not compromise
Some people may choose cheaper and lower quality tiles, because they do not see tiles as a future investment. If you find tiles that are a bit costlier but you really need to buy them then search around for sellers willing to offer you a discount.
It is strongly advised to add some extra tiles than the number of tiles you actually require when buying floor tiles. You can always use these extra tiles in place of any breakages and cuts.
Moreover, many companies may offer you a refund on tiles which were not used. If you wish to know more on tiling and tiling tips, you may read this post here.
Bigger tile are not always a better option
If your floor is designed in such a shape that it will need lots of tile cuts around the fittings and fixtures then it is better to choose smaller tiles so that there is the least bit of cutting.
Make use decors and borders
You can add a bit of extra class by breaking up the wall tiling and adding some decors.
Maintenance and repairs
Make sure you get the right advice for both treating and sealing the tiles before and after they have been fixed in proper places.
