If you’re unsure which to choose for your shower cabin tiling, some of the most popular types of bathroom tiles are:
Categories of Bathroom Tiles Commonly Installed in Uganda
They come in two types: glazed and unglazed. Glazed tiles are either plain or decorated and are suitable for both the floor and walls. Since they’re smooth with no pores, they’re really easy to clean and come in a large variety of colours. The main disadvantages against the unglazed ones are they’re less resistant to scratches and slips. For this reason, unglazed tiles are a great shower cabin tiling option.
These are a continuing trend in these past years, since they’ve become a lot more affordable. What’s great about them is they can be used to create beautiful and unique designs, thanks to their ability to reflect light, highlighting each tile. Glass tiles require a bit more expertise to install, but the final look of your Bathroom Tiling London is well worth the effort.
Quarry tiles are made by extruding natural clay or shales, and then fired at a temperature of 2000 F°. They are available in white, black and terracotta. Terracotta means “baked earth”, due to its brown-orange colour. Since it’s porous, it needs a proper ceramic sealant to fill the pores. You can get the glazed version to fix this problem.
They can also be considered ceramic tiles, but with a very low water absorption rate. Porcelain is made from kaolin clays, silica, quartz and feldspar, heated at about 2200 F°. It’s very durable and, even if you manage to scratch or chip the top, you won’t notice, since it’s made from the same material from the top to its base.
Light Weight Bathroom Wall Tiling Works
Tiles are traditionally square and are of heavy weight. But with advanced tile technology tiles now have become light and rectangular in size and are being manufactured in larger formats. Bathroom tiling can install the extra light and extra light wall tiles and make a big impression on the architecture and increase the value of homes. The lighter and larger size tiles are mostly available in porcelain and they are available for both walls and floors.
Bathroom Tile Installation
If you are renovating and want to do away with the earlier wall or floor material we can easily adapt these tiles and save lot of money and time. The bathroom tiles can be installed over an existing wall surface such as concrete, brick and mortar, and other surfaces.
Since these are light weight tiles they can be easily installed over an existing wall surface and save the expense that may occur to dislodge the old material from the wall. Walls can easily take the load of the Xlight tiles without any scratching off old material or any major preparations.
By installing the large format tiles you can save on installation costs and material costs. Despite their thin form they present a strong surface because they are by mixing appropriate base materials that make them strong.
Decorative Mosaic Tile Choices
Mosaic tiles are formed by using ceramic, glass, porcelain, marble and other floor materials. you can create a huge range of colors and patterns with mosaic and it can also be applied on walls to make great art work for your living room. Mosaic in fact can be used anywhere in the house and that include kitchen and bathroom. Mosaic patterns are widely used to decorate home exteriors and pathways, driveways and portico and they look classic and ooze a charm that is evergreen.
Besides walls mosaic tiles are primarily used on floors. Flowery patterns are arranged at the center of a hall, room or foyer to highlight the space’s ambience and importance. Mosaic tiles are able to bear heavy foot traffic without fading, breaking or wearing. Since they are formed joining many small pieces of tiles they have many grout lines which is good for footing. It is anti-slip as the floor provides enough purchase for the sole of the feet to get a good grip on the floor. If you want decorative flooring you should opt for mosaic tiles as it can produce a kaleidoscope of patterns for your choice.
Anti Slip Bathroom Tile Works for Safety
Mosaic tiles are ideal for Bathroom tiling because of the anti-slip factor. Most home projects we have completed in Uganda have mosaic flooring for bathrooms as they are able to create a favorable interior where you can enjoy and relish taking a shower.
Mosaic tiles are easy to clean and maintain and you will not need any special type of chemical or method to clean them. Simple mop and detergent mixed water will do because all materials used to make mosaic tiles are glossy, shiny, with smooth surface and they don’t allow water to sit on them and get absorbed.
While choosing tiles for your bathroom we observe the same rules as mentioned above because bathroom is a wet room and is used by household members every day.
The thing with bathrooms is that they need to be kept dry and for that purpose we install tiles that do not allow water to stay and infiltrate. Stagnant water can breed a horde of bacteria and fungus and your bathroom will become a house of infections that are bad for allergies.
The best bathroom tiles for both residential and commercial buildings can be narrowed down to 2 or 3 choices and they would include ceramic, marble and glass. Ceramic is the cheapest of them all and the most versatile with its range of colors, patterns, designs and styles.
