Wall tile is much easier to maintain than paint, wallpaper, or other tile materials. You can choose from a range of finishes such as matt, glossy, or semi-glossy. To keep the tiles clean, all you need to do is wipe them from time to time. Ceramic wall tiles are also highly resistant to abrasive chemicals and cleaners, which makes them easy to keep clean.
The Advantage of Wall Tile for Home
Variety of designs
Tiles are especially suitable for redecorating because they come in such a wide range of designs. You will be able to choose the style which perfectly matches your home, anything from funky and mismatched, to modern grey and white. Tiles are also available in a variety of materials, such as glass, which brightens up the room, natural stone, for that luxurious look, or porcelain, which has a smooth finish. There are different sizes and shapes of tiles for you to pick from as well, so you have the option to decorate with anything from little, mosaic tiles to large square slabs.
Easy to clean
One major benefit of installing bathroom wall tiles is that they are water-resistant. When the room gets steamy, or water and soap are splashed up onto the walls, the tiles simply repel the liquids and remain unaffected. This means tiles are also much easier to clean than painted walls, which can attract mould. Simply wipe the surface with household cleaning products such as lemon juice, bicarbonate of soda or multi-purpose cleaning sprays for an everyday clean, and then use a chemical cleaning agent or steam cleaner for a thorough process.
Wall tiles are very low maintenance, and they have a long lifespan. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are especially durable due to their hard-wearing surface, so it is very unlikely that they will crack or chip. Tiles are ideal for bathroom walls as the grout holding each tile in place will stop any water from getting through to damage the wall behind. Tiles stay pristine much longer than other materials, such as paint, which can become discolored and eroded after long-term exposure to moisture. As long as you apply sealer every three or four years and clean them regularly, tiles will maintain their quality for a couple of decades.
