A beautiful bathroom or kitchen can look absolutely terrible if the tiling is not done correctly. Uneven tiling and tiles that fall off the wall are unsightly and often dangerous to you and your family. Apart from choosing the correct type of tiling for your walls and floors, you need to find a reputable tiling contractor in Cape Town who is able to provide you with good references for both wall and floor tiling work that he has done within the last three to six months.
Having tiles on your floors provide a range of benefits, including that they are easier to maintain than carpets, but it is very important that you use the right tile for the right purpose. Since tiled floors have become a popular replacement for carpets, there are a range of floor tiles which are slightly different to your ordinary wall tiles.
It is also very important that your plastering and surfacing of your walls and floors are done correctly before any tiles are laid, if there is the slightest irregularity your tiles will not be secure and they could easily just pop off your wall or lift off the floor. Wall tiles that pop off can shatter which can be dangerous to anyone walking around, while floor tiles that lift cause a hazard for tripping.
Floor tiles help to keep your rooms cooler in summer, but it is advised that you invest in some rugs as winter can be cold with only tiled floors. Bathrooms and kitchens walls with well-chosen tiles make the room look like a designer bathroom or kitchen!
