Wall Tiles FAQs
Wall tiles are available in all sorts of different tile materials, shapes and designs, allowing you complete freedom when it comes to creating the perfect colour scheme in your next project. From opulent ceramic tiles or porcelain tiles to modern concrete tiles or even sophisticated natural stone tiles, the possibilities truly are endless!
What is the Difference between Ceramic Tiles & Porcelain Tiles?
When shopping for tiles, you will notice some collections note the product is a porcelain tile while others are labelled as ceramic tiles. These two different tile types are both made of the same raw materials however, the differences lie in their kiln-baking process. Porcelain tiles are baked at higher temperatures and for longer periods of time in comparison to traditional ceramic tiles, resulting in an almost completely non-porous material that can usually be used as both a floor and wall tile solution. Ceramic tiles on the other hand, are baked at a lower temperature and for shorter periods of time result in a softer and more lightweight product. If left unglazed, ceramic tiles are porous and will require sealing, however if they are a glazed variety, they will not require sealing as the hardened glaze acts as a protective barrier. Due to their lightweight and soft characteristics, ceramic tiles are often restricted to wall applications only.
What is the Most Popular Tile for Bathroom Walls?
Ceramic tiles are the most popular option for bathroom walls. These types of wall tiles make for a lightweight solution that can easily be drilled through, making it easier to install wall accessories in the bathroom such as towel rails or wall shelves. Furthermore, as ceramic tiles are most often restricted to wall use only, you will find more decorative and elaborate options available in comparison to floor tile collections as there is no need to consider slip resistance in the design of wall tiles.
Which Tile is better for Shower Walls?
Both porcelain tiles or glazed ceramic tiles offer popular options for shower walls as these two tile varieties will not require sealing, allowing for a simple clean-up process in the shower. If you are after more of a luxurious finishing touch in the bathroom however, natural stone tiles are another popular option that will provide a lifetime of use. It is important to note however that natural stone options such as marble tiles or travertine tiles for example are porous and will require sealing in order to properly maintain them over time – Visit our Resources page for more detailed information on caring for different types of tiles.
