Are you planning to use tiles to lay flooring or decorate your home? This tile calculator post gives a comprehensive idea on tile selection, layout planning and estimating the number of tiles that you would require.
Tiles are items associated with the construction of buildings. They are thin, generally found in a rectangular or square shape. Tiles are most widely used for decorating floors, walls, table tops and for decorating the elevation of buildings.
Tiles are generally made of ceramic, stone and metal. Besides, various types of tiles are available to cater to various tiling needs:
☞ Roof tiles are often made out of terracotta and slate, and the most recent ones being made in concrete and plastic, the roof tiles are best fit for protecting your home from the rain. They go well for house elevation and roof decoration purposes.
☞ Stone based tiles such as polished granite and marble give a rich appearance. Their design and appearance vary from tile to tile because of polishing and their natural design, but they are slippery when water spills on them.
☞ Ceramic tiles are easy to maintain and pocket-friendly; however, scratches appear on them when heavy loads are dragged over them. Also, they break easily.
☞ Rubber tiles are lately used more due to the easiness they offer. They are the best fit for commercial purposes such as gyms, swimming pools, dance floors, and workshops. Plastic floor tiles are another recent addition to the pool of tiles, which need no glue while laying. They are best suited for wet floors and schools.
☞ Ceiling tiles are light in weight and are best suited for interior decoration purposes. They occur in multiple designs and colors too.
☞ Glass tiles go well with bathroom and kitchen backlashes; they are difficult to maintain at other places.
☞ Quarry tiles are skid free and suit well for areas such as a patio or restaurant kitchens.
