The size of bathroom tile is incredibly important, your bathroom may be one of the smallest rooms in the house and if this is the case then it’s may be a good idea to stick to smaller tile. Using smaller tile will make your bathroom seem a lot bigger and will give the illusion of space. If you have a big bathroom then why not indulge in some larger format tiles? These are bang on trend at the moment. Take a look on our website to see the different sizes of tile that we offer.

The colour of tiles is also important; if you have a smaller bathroom then you should avoid using dark tiles as it may make your space feel small and enclosed. Sticking with a lighter colour will create space but this doesn’t mean that you have to use white tiles. There is such a wide choice available these days including a lot of lighter shades so it’s still possible for you to add a splash of colour to your bathroom in more of a subtle way.

Restoring Unglazed Terracotta Floor Tiles

Lift up an old carpet and sometimes you’ll be lucky enough to find vintage terracotta floor tiles underneath. They are very likely to be dirty and stained but don’t rip them up or cover them up just yet. They can often be rescued and you could end up with a fabulous floor, original to the house that will be a real talking point, and a great selling feature if you should want to move in the future. These days with the housing market so stagnant, selling a property is tough. Having a fabulous terracotta floor could be the deciding factor for one of your viewers choosing between the many similar properties on the market.

Early terracotta tiles were often laid onto sand with no damp proofing underneath allowing moisture to seep into and through the tiles, however over the years they become less porous and we end up with stained tiles.

So how can you bring your old tiles up to scratch? The first task is to give them a good scrub. Use stone floor cleaner diluted 1:3 with warm water. Apply with a sponge, allow it to soak in for about quarter of an hour (just enough time for a cuppa) and then get scrubbing. If you find a very stubborn stain then try a little of the stone floor cleaner undiluted. That may well shift it. Dry the surface with an old towel and leave the tiles to thoroughly dry right through. Be patient. This could well take several days, but rush and you won’t get the best finish.

Next you need to get out the vacuum and a duster and make sure there is no dust or dirt anywhere on the tiles or between them. Be as thorough as you can. The next job is to brush on a layer of boiled linseed oil with a paintbrush. As terracotta tiles are often not even, check back on them after about half an hour. You may find pools of oil have gathered in the dips, so redistribute this. Let it dry for around a day then apply another coat and let this dry again.

Take the time to look after your new flooring and it should look good for many years to come. Always clean up spill when they occur to minimise the chance of any future staining and make sure you sweep or vacuum regularly so no dirt remains on the tiles where it can get ingrained. Unglazed terracotta tiles do take a little more maintenance than some more modern types of tile such as porcelain floor tiles, but they do look stunning and if you have them in your home, they are well worth keeping if you can. If some are damaged it’s also well worth carefully removing and replacing them. You can buy a wide range of terracotta floor tiles, and you can stain them to match your existing tiles, so a few damaged tiles doesn’t necessarily mean you need to replace the entire floor.
