If you want to give your home a creative and artistic touch, then the most suitable option is to use hand painted ceramic tiles. Hand painting is one of the most popular methods for decorating ceramic tiles. Hand painted ceramic tiles not only improve the aesthetic value of your home, but also increase its resale value. They are a perfect choice to beautify children?s bedroom, recreation areas, living room, counter tops, stair risers, fireplaces, patios, fountains, table tops, floor accents, window borders, display windows, and wall coverings.
Another way to keep away dusts and dirt on your tiles is to have a walk-off doormat to restrain dirt at entryways of your house. Because of the majority of the dusts are trapped in your mats, only a few will go to your tile floor. If you want your ceramic tiles to maintain its shining and glazing look, you can do some extra cleaning. You can use damp mop up on them regularly to eliminate dirt that has stuck up on your tiles. There are also recommended cleaners for ceramic tiles that will allow your flooring to shine and dazzle as brand new.
If you are going to buy ceramic tiles for a ceramic tile backsplash, floor tiles, wall tiles or even ceramic tiles for ornamentation there are specific factors to know in choosing which tile is best for your application. Not all tiles are created equal and the differences can determine if your ceramic tiles will hold up to the use you are putting them. For example, low fire tiles or tiles that have only been through a bisque firing are generally less expensive but not nearly as durable as high fired tiles. Even if the tile has been glazed, it may still have only gone through one firing and very possibly only a low firing so the fact of it being glossy and colorful is no indication that the tile has the durability of a high-fired tile. Greenware – ceramics that has dried but not been fired, can be glazed with a low fire glaze and fired to a comparatively low temperature.
Once you have your tile, you can pre-cut tiles that will be placed at the edges of the floor if the tile is too large. This means you should do some measuring first. You can also cut the tile while you're laying it, but then you have to be sure you haven't laid down the mortar until you've made the necessary cuts. Mortar that is only partially dried might not bond with the tile when you set it. You can use a wet ceramic saw or a utility knife to do the cutting. Which you use depends on the thickness of your ceramic tile flooring. To set your ceramic tile flooring, you'll also need mortar and grout. These are easily purchased at any hardware or home improvement store. You'll also need a wet tile saw to cut tile, when required, and a trowel to spread the mortar or adhesive in which you set the tile. You can also use spacers which separate the tiles from each other in an even manner.
