At this time of year, a nice hot shower is just what you need to kick start your day. But did you know that a little preparation before tiling a new shower area can save you a lot of potential stress at a later date?
Using a tanking kit before tiling, such as the Ardex Waterproof Coating System can prevent water damage to walls and floors. This simple to use product consists of an Acrylic waterproof coating (2 part, liquid and cement based reactive powder) and a roll of mesh for extra protection around joints. This will then create a safe waterproof layer to tile on to; tiling with appropriate cement based flexible adhesive and grout can then commence 90 minutes after the waterproof system has been applied.
So don’t let water damage ruin your day; enjoy a stress free shower with the help of tiles4all’s professional tiling products.
Adding a tiled splashback is not just an attractive way to finish off your fabulous new kitchen. It’s a practical choice that will protect your walls from cooking stains, water marks, grease and general daily ware and tear.
Glass mosaics are a great choice for this type of area, not only do they look amazing, they are also practical and easy to use. The incredible range of lustrous shades and styles means that you can add something really special to your room.
The great thing about mosaics is that they are usually available to buy on a mesh backing that can be cut; this means that you can create a splashback to a height that suits both your requirements and budget.
Once bonfire night is out of the way you know that Christmas is not very far behind. We are already starting to notice that a lot of our customers are coming to us looking for wall and floor tiles to complete their home improvement projects before the festive season begins.
New kitchens and bathrooms seem to be top of the list for most people and this time of year is great to find a little inspiration; shades of autumn work perfectly well in the home and look particularly great in rustic styled homes. Terracotta, brown, beige, gold and copper are all popular tones that add a sense of warmth and comfort; they look amazing in kitchens and variations of these types of shades can be found in kitchen wall tiles, both in ceramic or natural stone. Tumbled edges and textured surfaces all add to the rustic vibe.
Floor tiles are also available to complete the look, porcelain interpretations of natural stone are both practical and durable with very little maintenance involved. Add some underfloor heating and your kitchen or bathroom will be set for the coming winter.
So if you are rushing to finish a winter makeover, now is a great time to start looking for the essential finishing touches such as wall tiles, floor tiles, mosaics and coloured grouts.
If you are not sure what colours work well together just take inspiration from the fabulous array of natural shades that can be found outdoors right now!
