Tile Installation Tips
Tile can play many roles in your home and is incredibly durable. Tile is not limited to flooring but can also be installed on walls, showers, and outside as a patio. Commonly tiles are installed in bathrooms and kitchens, as well as laundry rooms and mudrooms. Before ever installation, the installers will do a moisture test in those areas to determine what type of tile would be right for that space. Our flooring professionals can help you pick a tile that is right for your space, including tiles that are better equipped to handle moisture and humidity.
Porcelain tiles are preferred for bathrooms and laundry rooms because they have a lower absorption rate and will not expand due to contact with moisture. Tiles are normally dry-laid first to make sure they are correctly sized to the room, cut if needed, and then adhered to the floor with tile cement and grouted.
Best Places to Install Tile
Tile can be installed on your bathrooms floors as well as walls and custom shower stalls. For bathrooms there are different types of tiles, choosing a textured tile is a good idea because they are more slip resistant, and bathroom floors tend to be slippery. Tile is a good option for bathrooms because they are resistant to moisture and humidity.
Kitchen wall tile, or backsplash tile, not only adds a focal point in your kitchen, but it also serves as a protective barrier between your wall and accidental food splatter and heat from appliances. Tile works well in kitchens because it is durable and easy to clean, so the accidental mess during cooking will not interrupt your day.
