Our TILE, Your sTILE!

by Dhriti Dixit Luxury Marble Company in India

Wall tile is a thin object, usually square or rectangular. Flooring is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal, baked clay, or even glass, generally used for covering roofs, floors, walls, or other objects such as tabletops. Alternatively, wall tiles can sometimes refer to similar units made from lightweight materials such as perlite, wood, and mineral wool, typically used for wall and ceiling applications. In another sense, a tile is a construction tile or similar object, such as rectangular counters used in playing games.

 

Wall Tile is often used to form wall and floor coverings and can range from simple square tiles to complex or mosaics.

 

The walls of your house are a blank canvas; you can make wall tiles your paint. You can add warmth and texture with natural stone mosaics or bring glamour to your walls with reflective wall tiles or high-end marble. The options are endless, but the top 6 types of wall tiles are:

 

Ceramic Tiles

 

Ceramic tiles are just thin fragments of clay, camouflaged with a glaze and fired to create a surface that is highly waterproof, serviceable, and stain-resistant and usually with a pattern or colour on the face. The cover may be textured or smooth.

 

Cork Tiles

 

Cork tiles are manufactured by cutting pressed layers of a cork tree’s bark to create thin panels. Their surface is warm, but it stains easily and is not easily cleaned unless it is scaled. These wall tiles can adhere to the wall with contact adhesive or cork tile adhesive, which makes them comparatively easy to stick but almost impossible to remove later.

 

Metallic Tiles

 

Metallic tiles are manufactured from thin sheets of metal. These wall tiles can adhere to an adhesive or double-sided self-adhesive pad. They can be bent or cut to shape with scissors while for the tougher ones, tin snips may be needed. Besides, the effect of metallic tiles may be overprinted with a particular design or a pattern.

 

Mirror Tiles

 

Mirror tiles are silvered glass. Most are clear glass, but you have options of bronze, silver, or smoke-grey finish. They are mostly utilized for embellishing the backs of cubicles and the same small areas. These wall tiles adhere with small double-sided self-adhesive pads.

 

Brick and Stone Tiles

 

Brick and stone tiles are the reproduction of real brick and stone and are human-made. Some are slivering of brick or wafer-thin fragments of pressed stone aggregate. Most types of wall tiles adhere to unique adhesive. A vast range of shapes, colours, and sizes is available.

 

Mosaics Tiles

 

Mosaics are small fragments of ceramic tile, mostly square, though circular and interlocking shapes are also available. The gaps between the pieces of collection can be filled with grout. Although the grouting may gradually stain, the surface of the mosaics is easy to clean and hard-wearing.
