Tiles have long been a staple of interior design. From adorning luxury homes and ancient palaces, right through to adding splashes of colour and personality to our contemporary homes, tiles are a timeless design choice. Today, there is a whole world of options available, with something to suit every taste and budget. HaMuch can help you find the right tile installation contractors to bring this timeless look to your home.

What Types of Tiles Are Available?

There are so many types of tile on the market, from ceramic to slate, that it can be difficult to know where to start. Ceramic tiles, which are durable, hard-wearing and available in a range of colours and patterns, are the most popular choice, as they’re also very budget-friendly.

Stone tiles, while more expensive than ceramic, are timeless, yet modern, and add style to even the most practical of rooms. Slate, marble, limestone, and granite, as well as more rustic options, such as travertine and quartzite, take natural materials, formed over millions of years, and place them at the centre of contemporary home design. Stone and ceramic tiles are by no means your only choices too: there are also vinyl, rubber, cork, carpet and mirrored tiles. The list goes on.

Popularised by the ancient Romans, but still commonplace today, mosaics use small tile patterns to create a piece of art that wouldn’t look out of place at a museum. Mosaic tiles can be used to create pictures or an abstract image of geometric shapes and patterns. The benefit with mosaic tiles is that you can experiment with them over and over, without applying grout or adhesive, before settling on final design. This also allows you to create a design that is completely unique to your home.

When you settle on a design, tiles, whether fixed to walls or floors, are held with adhesive and grout, which acts as a cement to set them in place. It’s vital you use a professional tiler for this job, as they will have the tools and skills to ensure that tiles are equally spaced and finished to a high standard. Qualified tile contractors can also assist you with adding or replacing tiles in your home, along with helping you select the right tiles and grout mix (which are available in a range of styles, such as coloured or glitter grout) to suit your design needs and budget. If your finest tiles are looking a little worse for wear, then a tile repair contractor is the right person to call to get them fixed up again.
