Embarking on tile selection can be both exciting and overwhelming, given the variety of options available. Each type of tile, be it ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, or mosaic, carries its unique properties, aesthetics, and suitability for different spaces. To meet functional needs and design preferences, the team at OTB took some time to explore different options.

Ceramic Tiles: Versatile and Budget-Friendly

Ceramic tiles are known for their versatility and wide range of designs. They are an excellent choice for areas with moderate foot traffic. Being less dense than porcelain, ceramic tiles are easier to cut and install, making them a favourable for DIY projects. They're ideal for walls and areas that don't endure heavy use.

Porcelain Tiles: Durable and Water-Resistant

Porcelain tiles are highly durable and perfect for high-traffic areas. Their low porosity makes them excellent for moisture-prone areas. Porcelain is also tougher than ceramic, making it more challenging to cut and install, but its durability makes it a long-lasting choice for beautiful bathroom spaces.

Natural Stone: Unique and Timeless

Natural stone tiles, such as marble, granite, or slate, offer unique patterns and a timeless appeal. Each piece is distinct, adding a touch of elegance and uniqueness to your space. They require sealing to protect against stains and are perfect for adding value and aesthetic appeal to any area.
Mosaic Tiles: Artistic and Customizable

Mosaic tiles allow for artistic expression in a space. They come in various materials, including glass, ceramic, and natural stone, and are excellent for creating detailed designs and patterns. Ideal for accent walls, backsplashes, or decorative flooring, mosaics can transform any space into a work of art.

When choosing between ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, and mosaic tiles, each option serves a unique purpose and aesthetic. Ceramic tiles, budget-friendly and diverse in design, are perfect for homeowners seeking cost-effective elegance. Porcelain tiles, known for their robustness, are ideal for high-traffic areas and offer long-lasting quality. Natural stone tiles bring an unmatched, natural beauty to any space, making them ideal for adding a touch of luxury and uniqueness. Mosaic tiles, versatile and artistic, are perfect for creating custom designs and adding character to smaller spaces or as decorative accents. Understanding these reasons helps in selecting a tile that not only meets practical requirements but also complements the overall design vision of your home.
