Bathroom Tiles - FAQ

What tiles are best for a bathroom?

Ceramic or porcelain tiles are usual for bathroom tiles due to their glazed, non porous nature and durability. Natural stone tiles require sealing and can stain so fixing factory pre sealed tiles is recommend especially in wet zones such as showers.

Are bathroom tiles non-slip?

For a ceramic tile to be non slip the slip rating should be R11 -13 indicating a rough surface which makes slipping harder when wet.

If a tile has a slip rating R10 or less the tile will not be recommended as an anti-slip tile.

Should you use large tiles in a small bathroom?

You can use large tiles in small rooms as this usually makes rooms look more spacious due to less grout lines being on show.

What is the difference between ceramic and porcelain bathroom tiles?

Porcelain tiles are denser and harder than ceramic tiles. This means porcelain tiles can be used as both wall and floor tiles. Ceramic tiles can be made for both wall and floor but will usually need to be made thicker to be suitable as a floor tile.

Because of their strength porcelain tiles can be made into very large sizes which will need specialist cutting tools compared to smaller ceramic tiles.

Porcelain tiles are usually more expensive due to digital printing making them look like natural stone. marble, wooden planks etc compared to ceramic tiles using simpler printing techniques.

How can I calculate how many tiles I need?

First you will need the measurements for either wall or floor area to be tiled. Our tiles are advertised by the square metre so we recommend measuring your area in metres, but our calculator will allow you to enter measurements in different types such as feet and inches which will then calculate the square metres required.

Use the tile calculator on a product page to work out your area or use the links for

Calculating Floor area

Calculating Wall area

Once you know your tiling area measurement you will be able to select the quantity of tiles based on square metres require to cover on the corresponding product page.

Can floor tiles be placed on walls? And wall tiles on floors?

Floor tiles are strong enough to be used as either a wall or floor tile, but you will need to check what adhesive is needed to fix them to a wall as ready mix adhesive will probably not be suitable (flexible cement based adhesive for most floor tiles).

Ceramic wall tiles are not designed to be used as a floor tile as the glaze will not be strong enough and my crack or scratch over time. If a ceramic tile is suitable for the floor it will normally be thicker and have a suitable glaze.

Porcelain tiles are usually advertised as both wall and floor tiles due to their density and strength.

We will always label a tile as suitable for floor or just walls on the product page.

Can bathroom tiles be painted?

It is possible to buy tile paint for ceramic wall tiles not usually not suitable for other types of tiles.

Do you need a specific tile for a wet room floor?

If tiling a wet room floor which will have lots of water, such as a shower floor instead of using an acrylic shower tray, we recommend using tiles with an anti slip rating as 11 or higher as these tiles will have more grip to walk on.

Tiles can be either ceramic, porcelain or vitrified ceramic. Grout should be flexible and water-repellence, very low water absorption, high surface hardness and high resistance to the most common acidic substances.

Should you tile under bathroom cabinets?

It is recommend to tile behind bathroom unit walls and floor as it will seal the area and make it water resistant.

It also future proofs the room as if the unit requires replacing for a different size unit the area will be interchangeable and there wont be any gaps to fill.

Can I install underfloor heating under bathroom floor tiles?

Yes!

Electrical unfloor heating is suitable for bathroom floors (not wet zones such as shower floors) and are installed before the floor tiles are fitted on top with flexible adhesive and grout.

Make sure to use a qualified electrician to install the heating element before tiling.
