Tile Selection

At Decorated Earth we are here to help guide you through the options to find the perfect tile for you.

The sheer volume of tiles available through retailers today can make selecting the perfect tile for your home a daunting prospect.

At Decorated Earth we are here to help guide you through the options to find the perfect tile for your home and budget. After you have browsed through tiling showrooms we welcome the opportunity to consult with you on the different products available on the market before you make your selection. This is the ideal time to consider the dimensions and layout of your rooms and how this will affect your tiling.

Different tiles have different properties, which makes some tiles more suitable for particular applications than others. It’s worth keeping in mind that some tiles, in particular large rectified tiles (with square cut edges), can be more expensive to lay than others.

Ceramic tiles are made from clay and other materials and can be naturally coloured and unglazed (such as terra cotta) or coloured and glazed to a matte or high gloss finish.

Porcelain tiles are a newer ceramic tile product proving very popular. They consist of fine porcelain clay fired at higher temperatures, making them more dense, stain resistant and harder than traditional ceramic.

A rectified tile is one that has been cut after firing to achieve a more precise tile size, which gives them distinctive square cut edges. When laid they create a striking finish.

The perfect tile will depend on your project, budget and taste – we work closely with our clients to select tiles and use our knowledge, experience and creativity to create a stunning effect.
