Tiles FAQ

What Is A Tile?

Tiles are a furnishing that can be applied to the floor and walls of your home. They can be made from almost any material, such as ceramic, porcelain, cement, glass, metal, and wood. You’ll most often find tiles in ‘wet’ areas of the home, as tiles will often provide a mostly waterproof surface and protect your walls from any damage.

Tiles can be as simple or as decorative as you need, you can find a tile that will suit all manner of decor and styles.

What Type of Tiles Are Available?

There is a huge variety of tiles available, WA Tiling and Renovations has extensive experience in installing any type of tiles. But the ones you choose can mostly depend on the job that needs to be done.

The most common tiles are ceramic and porcelain, but tiles can be made out of many other materials. We can discuss your tile options when designing and planning your renovation.

Which Is Better: Porcelain or Ceramic Tile?

These are the two most common types of tile, and the difference lies in the way that they’re produced.

  • Ceramic Tiles are made from natural clay, sand and water which is baked in a kiln to remove most of the moisture.
  • Porcelain Tiles are made in the same fashion as ceramic tiles, but they use a denser form of clay and are baked at much higher temperature so almost all of the water is removed. These tiles are much harder and denser than ceramic. The extended manufacturing process usually makes porcelain tiles more expensive.

You can read more about ceramic and porcelain tiles in our blog.

What Is A Rectified Tile?

Rectified tiles are tiles that have been cut or ground very carefully to a precise measurement. This means that they are able to be installed with a minimal amount of grout, and you end up with a very clean looking tiled area. Using rectified tiles will give your bathroom a modern appearance and be aesthetically pleasing.

Can I Install Floor Tiles on The Wall or Wall Tiles on The Floor?

Generally, any floor tile can be installed onto your wall, however it is not advisable to install a wall tile on the floor. This is because a wall tile is usually not manufactured to the specifications required and cannot cope with the amount of traffic a floor tile will normally receive. Wall tiles are usually thinner and can break more easily.
