Flooring is one of the most important decisions that a homeowner will ever make and we know that the choices can be intimidating.

The first step in that choice is understanding the aesthetic of each type of tile. Gloss (as the name implies) is highly reflective. This can assist in making smaller spaces appear larger. For this reason, they are often a great choice for wall tiles for small rooms. These tiles do tend to show grease stains and dirt due to their reflective nature – but they are also extremely easy to clean, just requiring a simple wipe down with household detergent and warm water. Window cleaner also works very well. They can also be very attractive used as floor tiles in larger formats. However, the buyer should be aware that the wall tile versions are not suitable for floor use – they tend to crack easily. A thicker and more robust version is better – and these are widely available.
