Tile Features

Different tile brands come with different features, which is why it is important to ensure that the features of the tiles you’re looking to buy works perfectly for your space in the short and long run. Some tile features amongst others include:

  • Stain resistance
  • Flexibility
  • Non-flammable
  • Heat resistant
  • Ease of cleaning

Tile edge styles are also features that have effect on the design of your tiled floor or wall. Rectified tile has gone through a manufacturing process to assure each tile is exactly the same size and shape, and therefore it is possible to lay them cleanly and carefully with very little grout.

Non-rectified or standard, tiles, are produced so that there are slight variations in tile size. From a design perspective, rectified tiles will produce a more modern and exacting look, while standard tiles may have a more natural or rustic feel.

Metal patterns, however, are usually the result of glazing, where a metallic lustre is added to the final firing process. While unglazed tiles show the color of the ceramic itself, glazed tiles can add a palette of colors and levels of reflection to your room.
