Most of the time while planning to use tiles we tend to forget that there are major factors that we should always consider before choosing and installing tiles. Here are some of the factors that you should consider;

Quick read: 8 tips to consider while choosing tiles


  1. Tile Hardness. It measures the material’s ability to withstand wear/foot traffic, as well as scratches.
  2. Tile Porosity. It is determined by the ratio of air holes to solids in a tile, which impacts the amount of water it absorbs. If you are going to install in a moisture-prone area, such as a bathroom, kitchen, mudroom, laundry room, pay close attention to this rating.
  3. Consider Porcelain Tiles. If you are looking for a material that has strength, moisture resistance, and versatile design, porcelain is the best choice. It is more durable than ceramic and comes in a greater variety of styles, colors, and textures. Not all porcelain products are made equal, and you need to check the specs of each one.
  4. Tiles Slip Resistance. A bathroom is a prime place where fall accidents may happen, particularly the shower area, so good slip resistance is highly recommended. When shopping around for a shower tile floor, it is advisable to look for products with a high coefficient of friction (COF).

Tiles selection tips

  1. Ceramic or Porcelain: choose a product that has a special textured surface. Inquire about slip-resistant coatings.
  2. Slate: this beautiful stone has a naturally slip-resistant texture.
  3. Small size tile: these have more grout lines, making the overall surface more textured and therefore slip-resistant. Penny tile rounds are another beautiful design that provides ample traction. They typically come in size 2×2 or smaller. As a result, they would be perfect as shower tiles.
  4. Pebble stone: has a highly textured surface and boasts a unique visual aesthetic.
  5. Ceramic wood tile vs real Hardwood. Ceramic wood tile is easier to maintain and also durable, scratch and moisture resistant. These will look stunning as a kitchen floor tile, particularly in more traditional or rustic spaces. Also, it’s ideal as a bathroom or a shower floor tile, where a real hardwood would not be recommended.
  6. Luxury tiles. If luxury and incredible durability are your top priorities, stone floor tile is second to none. Marble, granite, and travertine can elevate the look of any room in your house. Because no two stones are exactly alike, you get a naturally beautiful floor that will look like no other. Stone tiles need to be sealed and after 5-10 years to maintain the durability and remain resistant to stains. Unsealed stone may remain porous and therefore susceptible to water infiltration.
  7. Space perceived tiles. If you have a room that is small and or does not have a lot of natural light, you can improve it by installing the light color tile. White, sand, beige, cream, etc. are all good choices. Marble or ceramic/porcelain would be a good match for this application. Larger tiles tend to make a small room appear bigger. You can even install the same material on the walls, which will further enhance the illusion of expanded space especially the bathrooms and tiny rooms.
  8. Concrete Tiles. If you want a very modern, upscale feel in your home, consider concrete tile. It is a highly versatile material that can be used in any room of your house: kitchen, bathroom, living room, etc. Compared to other types of tiles, concrete’s biggest advantage is that it can be custom made for your particular application. You can choose the size, color and texture of concrete, request custom cutouts, embeds, special imprinted patterns, as well as three-dimensional sculptural designs. Thus, your design options are virtually endless. This unique custom-made flooring is rather affordable.
