Tips & Tricks for your Tiles

 


Small rooms, big tiles

Unfortunately, we only have a small room, but we like the idea of having large tiles. Can they be laid?
Yes absolutely. Large-format tiles are in vogue and make even small rooms look visually generous. XXL tiles are synonymous with state-of-the-art processing technology, and furthermore, they are practical: Thanks to the lower proportion of grouts, large-format tiles are particularly easy to clean.

Grout and silicone paint

We found suitable tiles, but which grout or silicone paint should we use?
In general, the more the grout color tone matches the color tone of the tile, the better. This creates a harmonious surface. For very lively or colored tiles, however, we always recommend a shade of gray, so that the tile dominates and not the grout. Of course, in addition to numerous tiles, we also offer a wide range of colors from the best grout manufacturers. The overall package has to be right.

Different Surfaces

Matt or shiny - can´t this work together?
Of course! A polished wall to matt floor tiles or vice versa - everything is possible. With multiple different surface types, tension is created by just the combination of different types of tiles. In addition to matt and glossy, we therefore also use structured, lapped or satined tiles.

The height of the Skirting

Is it recommended to cut the base out of the tile or should you rather buy a finished skirting?
That's really up to you. It depends on whether you prefer a straight edge, which can be installed flush with the wall, or a rounding as a finish. In the first case, we would advise a cut-out skirting. However, if you prefer a more rounded finish, you can easily buy a ready-made skirting. In both cases, the skirting height is usually between four and six centimeters.

With rough edges

I especially like it when the edges of the tiles are accentuated. What are the options?
Stainless steel, brass or aluminum rails are best suited as a contrast to the tile. If the rails have the same color as the tiles, or if finished jolly edges have been ordered from the manufacturer, the edges merge into each other - of course at the expense of the contrast. The premium version, however, is: Sanding tiles on miter. This really ensures a first-class and very high-quality look.

From the floor to the wall

We love our floor tiles and would like to lay them everywhere. Would that work on the wall too?
Sure! Just pay attention to the same caliber of floor and wall tiles, so the tiles can also be laid in the grout cut. Square tiles also create a unique look on walls.

Wall on floor - or vice versa?

We want the same tiles on the walls and on the floor. But is that possible?
All floor tiles can be laid both on the floor and on the walls. Due to their softer earthenware shards and the glaze wall tiles should really be used only on the walls.

Underfloor heating meets Tiles

We will install a floor heating, can we still put on tiles?
Definitely! Tile, cotto and stone are ideal heat conductors and therefore particularly well suited to transport the heat of underfloor heating.

Indoor and outdoor

Our living room opens via a large window front to the outside. How can we optimally connect the interior and exterior spaces?
There are many tiles, with a thickness of 2cm, which is why they can also be installed outdoors. Through a uniform appearance in the indoor and outdoor areas, the living areas can be optimally interconnected and thus appear very generous.

Small but powerful

My bathroom is very small, how can I make the most of it?
Here absolutely applies: less is more. Limit yourself from two to a maximum of three colors in the bathroom. So it always works harmoniously. Few, but high-quality decorative elements, mosaics or decorative tiles provide style - even in the smallest bathroom.
