Here’s how to choose the right tile for your bathroom or kitchen remodeling project.

Consider the Application

When beginning the tile installation process, a consideration for the application must be contemplated. What surfaces are going to be covered? Are they floors,counter tops or walls? Fragile materials like glass are recommended for walls or back splashes. Materials known for their durability such as stone, ceramic or bamboo can be used for floors or counter tops where there’s much traffic.

Consider What Size of Tile You Need

This is usually thefirst question that pops into your mind before making your selection.In theory, tile does come standardized sizes but it shouldn’t be anissue since it can be cut into smaller pieces at any time. However,this should be considered in order to save time and money. The timeyour tile layer will take to cut down bigger slabs of tile could havebeen used for something more important. Moreover, if planning toinstall tile at a more expensive price point, you might lose some ofit during the cutting process. Deliberate on the size of tile you’llneed for the space and check with your tile dealer in the event ofyou need a customize size.

Consider your Budget

The cost of tileswill vary depending on the material, size, shape and specialpreferences. Its important to note that the tile won’t be the onlyitem in your budget, so choose wisely. A carefully thought out budgetthat has a reasonable sum for your chosen tile and installation costwill always keep you within budget.
