What tiles are best for Flooring?
When it comes to tiling floors you may want to consider where they are going to be installed when it comes to choosing the correct type of floor tiles.

For tile flooring designs, most kitchens and bathrooms are usually design with plan and natural looking tiles. These tend to be the most popular choice for tile flooring and give your kitchen and bathroom the perfect look.
What tiles are best for Underfloor Heating?
If you are looking for the best type of tiles to use for underfloor heating, you should apply the same rules when it comes to standard floor tiles. Choose a textured type of floor tile that will provide more grip, so when the flooring has become wet there is less chance in you slipping. We also recommend choosing a bigger floor tile as this requires less grout, which is not a great conductor for heat.
What tiles are best suitable for a small bathroom?
Smaller tiles are often selected as the better option when it comes to small bathrooms. However smaller tiles will require a lot more grout which can make the tiling look cluttered. Avoiding these types of busy tile designs is the best option.
Large tiles will help to create the illusion that the bathroom is bigger than it looks. Small amounts of large tiles can cover the space much more quickly. The great thing is that it requires fewer tiles that will need cutting when it comes to smaller and tighter space.
What tiles should be used for an enclosed shower?
Tiles for showers come down to whether you are tiling the wall or the shower flooring. If you are looking to create a wet look then choosing a textured tile for the floor will be the better option to give you more grip in the shower.

Having neutral tiles on the outside of the shower and designer tiles in the shower will give a beautiful contrast that makes your shower standout.
What tiles should be used in a wet room?
If you have a wet room it is very important that it is tiled with a textured type of tile that will provide grip on the floor. This will help prevent users from slipping and injuring themselves while using the wet room. Using smooth titles will make the surface slippery and dangerous.
