Kitchen & Bathroom Tiling – All your Options

Most homes have a kitchen and at least one bathroom and most kitchens and bathrooms are tiled. Tiles come in many shapes and sizes and are a part of our homes that we often take for granted, but they have a major impact on the look and feel of a room.

Tiling can be an expensive outlay and if not done correctly could become a costly maintenance task or even have to be stripped down and redone completely. Which is why you need to be certain that the tiles you choose for your home fit the form and function that you’re home needs.

Below are some different options that are available when you go about choosing the right tile for your kitchen or bathroom upgrade.


These tiles are used in lounges, kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms. They come in a wide variety of colours and patterns, and they complement many types of furniture.

They are very durable and very resistant to scratches and fading.


These are manufactured from ceramic material but are fired at much higher temperatures. You can find glazed or unglazed porcelain tiles on the market.

They are very resistant to moisture and frost and can be used for outdoor areas with high foot traffic.

Natural stone

Natural tiles are made from slate, sandstone, granite and natural marble and they work well outdoors because they are so durable.

They are very resistant to the elements and foot traffic and their colour doesn’t easily fade.


These tiny tiles come in a wide variety of materials such as glass, metal and natural stone. They are laid in beautiful patterns that bring life to the home.

They are easy to clean and are able to withstand extremely hot or cold temperatures, so they are ideal for areas such as the kitchen or bathroom.


These tiles offer customers the look and feel of more expensive tiling, but at a far lower cost. Homeowners are able to substitute the appearance of natural stone or solid wood flooring even when on a tight budget.
