A conservatory or a sun room is a popular and impressive home extension option. Because they often lead to the garden, many homeowners opt for tiled floors in these rooms, and choosing the right tiles, that will finish your conservatory to the highest degree is incredibly important. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to choosing tiles for the conservatory.
Conservatory design and layout
If your conservatory is a room in itself, you will have a wider range of tiling options open to you. However, if it is connected to the kitchen, or the living room, as an open plan space, your tiles will need to blend and match perfectly with the other rooms. This will determine your tiling choices, and is one of the first things to consider.
In addition, as conservatories lead to the outside, and will get quite a lot of foot traffic going in and out, you will need floor tiles that are strong, durable and resistant to frequent temperature changes. The tiles you choose will need to be able to withstand a lot of use, without becoming damaged and ruining your interior decorating. For this reason, porcelain tiles will probably be your best bet.
The slightly different process used to create porcelain tiles means that they are more hard-wearing and more durable than ceramic tiles. This will make them better equipped to handle for the conservatory.
In addition, they are also available in a range of colours, styles, textures and patterns, so you can find something to suit any style. If you have a contemporary home, why not opt for porcelain tiles in a hexagonal shape to make a real statement.
Alternatively, porcelain tiles in a checkerboard layout could be incredible in a traditional, or period property.
