The task of selecting the right tile for your home renovation is becoming more daunting by the day. So many designs with so many variants differing in size, texture and substance exist in the market. And the good thing-bad-thing about them is that each of them seems appropriate to fit anywhere in your house.
Fortunately “Direct Tile And Bath”- your one-stop supplier of discount tiles in Perth provides you with a knowledge base on which tile to use at which part of your house.
But Before That... Something Equally Important!
Check The PEI Rating: PEI rating determines the durability of the tile in question. Tiles with a low rating like 1 or 2 prove suitable for low traffic areas, whereas those rated 5 deems appropriate for heavy foot traffic areas. This is meant for clay or porcelain tiles in Perth or other similar options.
Checking The MOH Rating: MOH rating is mainly applicable for glazing tiles who come in a rating of 1-10. Any tile with rating 5 or above is meant to be impressively durable and suitable for normal flooring applications. Whereas, tiles with rating 7 or above is appropriate for extreme trafficked parts of the house- like the hallway.
Which Tile Goes Where?
For The Kitchen
PEI and MOH rated tiles are best suited for the heart-and-soul of your house. Contrary, non-glazed tiles are notsuitable at all.
The appropriate options would be to opt for textured glass or well-polished tiles. Porcelain tiles are the best option. Our experts will help you out with your flooring needs and even combine it with silicone- grouts to improve stain resistance.
For The Bathroom
When selecting the right bathroom tiles in Perth, always consider the slippage-resistant factor. Again opting for glossy tiles for the floor could be inappropriate, as when wet, they become really slippery.
Options which you could opt for include glass tiles, stone tiles, ceramic tiles, vinyl tiles, linoleum tiles, plastic laminate tiles and cork tiles.
For Interior Entrees
Your interior entree is the most trafficked area of the house. And so, when selecting the right tile; you need to go for options with higher MOH ratings.
Rough-textured glazes are an adequate option as it conceals the dirt and withstands the foot traffic it receives constantly. Avoid any kind of designer tiles with MOH ratings of 3 or lower.
For The Kid’s Playroom
A lot of people make the mistake of choosing low-quality clay tiles. Don’t make this mistake. Clay tiles can easily crack and chip away with more exposure to foot traffic and impact.
