Mix and match tile shapes and sizes for a striking look. A creative layout can add spice to a more neutral tile design. We can help you choose the right combinations to make the most impact in your home.
Here are some basic but overlooked golden rules when designing with tile.
We recommend that our natural stone and porcelain products are thoroughly cleaned and sealed after laying, to maintain the beauty of the material when first laid.
Natural Stone is a fantastic product as you get a unique, “wow factor” floor. However there are some factors that need to be undertaken to keep your natural stone floor at the best possible condition for the longest possible time. All natural stone tiles are porous.This means that if you were to spill something on your natural stone floor it can stain. To prevent this, we use an easy-application impregnator sealer. This is a sealer that impregnates the stone to prevent staining. Our most popular sealer is the Water-Based Fila MP90 or the Solvent-Based Fila MP90 Eco Plus.
The undulation of the surface of textured porcelain makes it necessary to clean the entire surface, including the low points, which necessitates some additional, practical dirt- removal procedures. Standard wet-mopping will not effectively clean these finishes. Also, it is necessary to thoroughly rinse the tile to completely remove all dirty cleaning solutions.
