Materials

Ceramic & Porcelain

Ceramic & Porcelain

Both originate from Clay, but the main difference is that Porcelain tile is much more hard wearing and durable. The clay used in Porcelain tiles is more refined and they're also heated for longer, at a higher temperature, during firing. This takes more water out of the clay and makes the tiles denser. Ceramic tiles are strengthened by applying a glaze, which is basically a thin layer of glass. Generally, Ceramic tiles are only suitable for walls and Porcelain tiles are only suitable for floor tiling.

Travertine

Travertine

Sometimes known as travertine limestone or travertine marble. These are the same stone, though neither are limestone or marble. The stone has pitted holes and troughs in its surface. These troughs occur naturally, giving a natural aged or worn effect. Grout can be used to fill these holes, or they can be left open and the tiles can be bought filled or unfilled. Also, it can be polished to a smooth, shiny finish and comes in a variety of colours from grey to coral-red.

Slate

Slate

Natural Slate tiles will comfortably fit into any modern or traditional setting. Slate varies in colour and texture, depending on what part of the world it comes from, so there are a range of choices for any project. The riven surface is naturally slip resistant, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

Mosaic

Mosaic

Mosaic is the art of creating images by assembling many small pieces of glass, stone or tile. The earliest examples date back to the 4th Century BC. Today Mosaics are generally pre-constructed on Hessian backing sheets or paper sheets in various sizes.

Limestone

Limestone

Limestone is commonly used in architecture all over the world. The Great Pyramid and Egypt are made of limestone. Limestone is still often used on all types of walls and floors. It's readily available, easily to cut and is also long-lasting, standing up well to exposure.

Marble

Marble

The preferred product of Roman and Greek architects, marble has become a symbol of culture and refined tastes. Its application is an extremely specialist area, requiring exacting skill and patience. The best possible adhesives, grouts and polishes have to be used to bring out the natural beauty of the material.
