Three Things You Need to Know About Cheap Tile
If you are getting ready to tile an area of your home it’s important to know a few details about buying cheap tile before you get started. Whether you purchase wholesale tile, discounted tile or just tile out of the bargain bin, there are many directions you project can go. If you have questions or need some advice, contact us - Tiles Direct Norwood.
1.Color is key! Dark colors can make a room look smaller while light colors can make a room look bigger. But if you choose a completely neutral color scheme you can make the space look dull. Just remember, things like paint color and accessories can be easily changed. Going with neutral colored floor tile is a great option as the resale value of your space can increase and will entice new buyers.
2.Quality matters! Ceramic tile is lightweight and easy to install. It works perfectly for walls or as tile for a backsplash in the kitchen. White ceramic tile is probably the cheapest item you will find. Stick with more durable options like porcelain or stone if you are tiling a floor. The Porcelain Enamel Institute (PEI) has a rating system for tile. Make sure you buy tile that can withstand the amount of foot traffic it will encounter.
3.Know an Expert! If you are inexperienced and will be tiling on your own it’s important to have an expert that you can speak to when you have questions. Between the material choices, sub flooring, adhesives, grout, wet saws and tiling difficult areas, it will come in handy to have a person who is experienced help you make the right decisions.
