Important considerations when tiling to create a continuous surface
If you want to create the impression of a continuous surface when tiling, there are a number of things you should consider, including:
- Using rectified tiles- rectified tiles are designed evenly. This means that each tile is cut at a 45 degree angle, and finished with high-pressure water-jet cutting equipment, applied around the whole perimeter of the tile, to ensure that so that the edges are all identical and absolutely straight. This means that a minimal amount of grout can be used between tiles.
- Choosing a similar grout colour- while rectified tiles allow the grout lines to be particularly narrow, the colour of the grout can make all the difference. A grout colour that is very similar to the colour of the tiles can blend into the overall surface, and create the impression of now joins at all. This allows you to create a stunning, contemporary design.
- Choose the style- you should also choose the right style of tiles for your property. For the continuous tiling effect, many homeowners and property developers opt for timber effect floor tiling, as the very narrow joints allow these tiles to resemble hard wood flooring very closely. Stone effect tiling can also be very effective, creating the effect of luxury and elegance.
