The Foundation Starts With Tiles, Tiling Adhesive and Grout

We provide a choice of tiling materials to suit every job  

Our team have many years of experience in the flooring industry.  Tiling adhesive and grout is more than finding what looks good and laying them down. You need to ensure you have the correct material chosen, for the proper design all within the budget allocated. Here are a few other ideas or points to think about ... 

The size of the tile can play a role for a room, such as: 

  • small-sized tiles usually work well for small areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and toilets,  
  • larger ones make an area feel bigger and airier. 

Think about the general mood you want to achieve, calm and relaxing or up-tempo?   

  • in a bathroom, you might want colours that blend well together
  • in your kitchen, something more vibrant is an option, and you can pick colours that contrast.
  • contrasting grout will emphasise lines and the designwhile a grout in a complementary colour as the tile will give a subtle effect. 

The dimensions of the area is essential as well ...

  • In a small room, light-coloured tiles will make the living area feel bigger.
  • If you have a large room, you have more options; such as you can choose from light to dark tiles.

    Texture and finishing

    • Whether you choose matt or a polished finished is a personal choice. A glazed tile is easy to clean, whereas a natural terracotta tile has no glaze and would need a seal to stop staining occurring.
    • gloss tile will suit a dark space as it reflects more light, as does a lighter colour.
    • Ensure your grouted areas are sealed to prevent staining.

    Lastly, we know that the material of the tile makes a difference ... ceramic tiles are fantastic for interior use and have many choices for designs, but are not the best for external use as they are more absorbent. We also know that working with porcelain is more breakable and harder to work with but is more durableless porous so suitable for those high traffic areas and exterior.  There are all various types of Tiling Adhesive and also Grouts. Some are ready-mixed, others in powder type. While simpler to start using, the ready-mixed kinds are not as solid typically as the powder type.

    More information on Tiling Adhesive and Grout

    There are lots of different types of Tiling Adhesive and Grouts. Some are powder form, some ready-mixed. While it's easier to start using, the ready-mixed types are not as strong generally as the powder form.

    You don't want to create that perfect job and find that your adhesive, while being nice n easy to apply, is not up to the job of holding the weight or dealing with any traffic.

    Generally, ready mixed tiling adhesive is suitable for those smaller areas using ceramic tiles. However, porcelain tiles and larger tiles should always be secured to the wall by a powdered solution. All floors should use a powdered mix.

    There are many different categories of tiling adhesives too. Some are quick-drying, some are more flexible, some reduced slip.
    Again, there are all different types of grouts, some higher quality than others. For best results, we would be happy to assist.
