At Stone & Earth, we understand that choosing tiles for your kitchen or bathroom can be daunting and often confusing so we have put together some top tips for you.

If there is a burning question that you’d like to know the answer to, we’d love to hear from you.

Q: What do I need to think about when choosing floor or wall tiles?
A: First and foremost, you need to consider the location and size of the room itself as this may determine what size of tile you choose.

Large tiles can give the illusion of making a room look more spacious but can also sometimes be too overpowering for a smaller room.
It really does depend on the floor space of individual rooms and with our free home visit, we can advise you on which format will be the most effective with your budget.

Secondly, you also need to consider what finishing effect, colour and pattern you want for your tiles and if it complements the rest of the room.

For example, if you’re looking for a floor tile for a shower floor, opting for a more textured tile could be the ideal choice whereas if you’re wanting to achieve a prestigious and luxurious room to your kitchen then a smoother more luxurious looking tile would be a better choice.
Choosing patterned ceramic tiles will give a room an inspiring feature wall whereas high traffic areas may benefit from porcelain tiles that are highly durable.

Here at Stone & Earth, let us advise you on which size, effect, colour and layout of tile would best complement your room design.

Q: What grouting shades should I use for my tiles?
Selecting a grout colour will depend on whether you want to match, complement or contrast with your tile choice.

We can match your silicone colour to your grout colour to create a sophisticated final impression whether it is an off-white or grey to bring the design together, a blue grey to go with cooler tiles or a beige to complement warmer coloured tiles.

As part of our tile design service here at Stone & Earth, we offer guidance on the best grouting shade choice.

Q: What tile spacing should I use for my wall or floor tiles?
A: The size of spacing for your tiles depends on a number of factors including the shape of the room, the size, material or pattern of the tiles and is crucial in giving the room a symmetrical and consistent finish.

With ceramic wall tiles, using 2-3mm tile spacers is common practice whereas 5mm spacers are chosen for floor tiles although with porcelain it is more often 3mm.

And, if you’re looking for a the ultimate showroom effect, we can for tiles with rectified edges, use 1mm small spacer joints which are on display in the Stone & Earth showroom.

Q: What trims should I use for my tiles?
A: Here at Stone & Earth we offer bespoke tile design advice such as which type and finish of trim is the best one for the type, thickness and colour of tile you have chosen.

Trims come in a choice of finishes such as chrome, satin or stone effect. The thickness of the tile will often dictate the thickness of trim you select whether it is 8, 10 or 12mm.

Because of our astute attention to detail, here at Stone & Earth, we ensure that customers get the highest quality in advice in choosing every element.

Q: What should I think about when choosing tiles for my kitchen?
A: When choosing tiles for your kitchen floor and wall you need to firstly calculate how many square metres you must cover.

If you bring your plans to Stone & Earth, we are more than happy to advise you on the quantity of tiles needed.

It is important to establish who will be fitting your tiles as some fitters will dictate the size of tiles they are prepared to work with. At Stone & Earth because we offer a wide range of tile sizes, our fitters can work flexibly with all shapes, patterns and sizes.

It’s important to consider the colour of your kitchen work surface and units when selecting your wall and floor tiles so by bringing in a sample of the colours and textures of your kitchen will help us to advise you on exactly what size, texture and colour of tile to choose.

Q: What should I think about when choosing floor tiles?
A: When choosing floor tiles for your kitchen or bathroom you need to firstly calculate how many square meters you must cover.

If you bring your plans to Stone & Earth, we are more than happy to advise you on the quantity of tiles needed.

The size of the tiles can determine the grouting joints needed as the larger the tile the fewer number of grouting joints needed which will achieve cleaner lines.

It is also vital that you know if you have a plywood, concrete or a liquid gypsum-based screed sub-floor to ensure the right adhesive is chosen for a secure and solid fix.

Q: How can I use mosaic tiles in my kitchen or bathroom? ?
A: At Stone & Earth, we have a selection of mosaic tiles that can add a touch of luxury to your home. Because of their versatility, there are many ways in which mosaic tiles can be used.

Mosaic tiles can be effectively used for a feature wall in both bathrooms and kitchens to make a statement piece.

They also work well when used as slim borders horizontally or vertically, to create zone areas on floors or even behind small sinks for a more vibrant brighter look.

Here at Stone & Earth, we can advise you on which mosaic tiles are most suitable for floors and walls and what base tile to use alongside them.
