The Tiling Emporium online tile shop General guide to buying tiles
1.Firstly measure all the floor and wall areas to be tiled. If the tiles are regular in size (15x15cm or 20x20cm) then you should not have to add more than 10% for wastage. Some tiles may have to be cut and the offcut may not be used elsewhere, others may be damaged during delivery or blemished. Always order at least an extra 10%, even if you don’t use them, they may come in handy at a later date in the future.
2. If you are tiling the bathroom walls, why not tile the whole room. There’s only one thing more tiresome than painting a 900mm strip of wall between tiles and ceiling, and that’s having to repaint it every few years.
3. If you are using a floor or wall border, to estimate the quantity required simply measure the linear distance to be tiled and divide it by the length of each border to arrive at the net number of tiles required. Again add a few extra borders for waste.
4. Don’t forget to check carefully if the floor tile selected is suitable and will withstand the foot traffic it may be subjected to.
5. In certain situations you may have to think about slip resistance and its relevance to your household or environment i.e around an indoor pool or in a bathroom in which a person with disabilities mayfrequent.
6. Make sure you buy the correct tile adhesive for the tiles in question and a compatible type and colour grout. You may need to consider flexibility, waterproofing or staining etc
7. What about ease of maintenance? Ceramic tiles are generally easy to clean, but what about terracotta, marble or porcelain. Make sure you understand what’s required to keep your floor looking good and any products you may require to maintain them.
8. Everyone likes a bargain but if you discover an attractive but average tile in terms of appearance and durability that only costs £15 a meter square, compared to an excellent tile available at £25m2, don’t be tempted to sign on the dotted line without considering: if you need 10m2 at an extra cost of £10 per m2, what’s £100 compared to living with your second choice for 10, 20 even 30+ years. Remember many grade 4 and 5 floor tiles areguaranteed for over 30 years.
9. If employing a tiler, check out his reputation and don’t be afraid to ask questions and get multiple quotes.
