Choosing the perfect Floor Tiles


Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we know how important it is to get your tiling just right. Especially the floor tiles. Not only do they need to be stylish and attractive, but they also need to be practical. This means that choosing the perfect floor tiles is not always easy. So we produced this guide, to help you make the right choices.

Ceramic or Porcelain

When it comes to your floor tiles, you should opt for porcelain tiles. As these are naturally more hard-wearing, they can withstand the abuse of a heavy footfall, and are less likely to crack of chip if something is dropped.

However, ceramic tiles are cheaper, and with the right sealant, and careful users, they too can be effective for floor tiles.


Choosing the perfect floor tiles means choosing the perfect colour. Coordinating your floor tiles with the rest of the room is one of the first decisions to be made. Are you aiming for a c striking contrast? Or a complementary colour scheme? Do you want your floor tiles to make a statement, or be a blank canvas to let the rest of the room shine? Whatever you decide will influence your colour choice.


When you think of tiles, you no doubt think of rectangular subway tiles, or square tiles in a grid layout. But your floor tiles do not have to be restricted to these shapes. In fact, hexagonal tiles can be extremely effective as floor tiles, especially when they match the rest of your style or theme. Alternatively, triangular tiles can also be stunning.
