Terracotta tiling adds that classy finish to your kitchen or bathroom. Terracotta means ‘cooked earth’ as they are made from clay. Terracotta tiles are fired at low temperatures and usually handmade. Terracotta tiles tend to be very absorbent and offer a rustic look which adds to the character of terracotta tiling. Because of the porous nature of terracotta tiling, they are usually sealed after application to add to the finish and durability of the tile. Terracotta tiling is used in a wide variety of settings (residential and commercial) but they look at their best when they give off a rustic, country feel.
Underfloor heating can be installed before we start work on your floor tiling. Underfloor heating can act as just a background heat to keep your home temperature constant, or it can warm certain rooms in your home to the desired temperature in the winter. Some people will consider Underfloor heating a slightly safer way to heat their home as their children may be susceptible to touching a piping hot radiator when the heating is on. Underfloor heating is also a ‘hidden’ heat and may be more aesthetically pleasing than installing radiators around your home. We have an abundance of experience in installing, maintaining and repairing Underfloor heating and can package it up along with your floor tiling, so please get in touch today to find out more.

Porcelain tiles are ceramic tiles, but the only difference is a very low absorbency. Much like ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles are hard wearing and can be used on walls and floors.

Mosaic tiles are unique in the sense that they are the smallest tile on the market. Mosaic tiles can be glazed or unglazed and they are made from natural stone, ceramic, porcelain or glass. Due to the delicacy and intricacy of mosaic, it is sometimes considered as a form of art when installing, using individual pieces, shades and colours to achieve the desired effect. Mosaic tiling is hard, but the appearance it gives off is soft - any size floor can be covered with mosaic but in practice it tends to be used on a smaller scale. Mosaic tiles are also much less slippery than other tiling solutions - making for a great solution to your bathroom.
