Mistakes to Avoid While Buying Floor and Wall Tilesby Sarah B. Marketing Writer | Thinker | Environmentalist
Using tiles (whether they are stone tiles and ceramic-porcelain) to create floors and walls has become a trend these days. People do not want to use to use traditional methods like plastered wall or wood in their home. They want a material that is hard, strong, durable, beautiful, and easy to clean.
Stones and tiles have all these qualities. Since they are highly popular and there are so many options to choose from, homeowners often invest in wrong material for their project.
This article talks about some of the most common mistakes that every homeowner should avoid while buying floor and wall tiles for their home –
Use Same Tile in Your Home –
A large number of people choose same tile for their entire home/space. When we same, we would like to drag your attention not only towards same color but also on same material.
Tiles come in a variety of surface finishes. One single tile cannot be suitable for your entire home. For example: you wouldn’t want to use polished porcelain or stone tile on your bathroom floor due to excessive slippery and potential injuries caused by that.
So, always choose different tiles for different purposes.
Not Taking Measurement –
Without measuring the length and breadth of the area to be tiled, how would you know the number of tiles you are going to require for your project?
Measure the sides to calculate the sq. ft. area before placing your order. And always order 10% extra tiles than your actual requirement. This will keep your project going, if some tiles reach you in damaged condition.
Apart from this, many homeowners do not consider the quality of subfloor a significant factor. Perfectly level, smooth subfloor is important for a perfectly level and durable tile floor.
