Ceramic tiling, clay tiles, stone tiles and porcelain tiles.
If you are going to be tackling a tiling job at your home in Portugal or even if you ae going to have a professional builder of tiler carry out the tile laying its important to be aware of what can be achieved.
People who are about to lay tiles themselves often think about the easiest way to lay them with the minimum of waste and the least hassle.
They could be missing out big time and not getting the best from their expensive tile.
Just as there are many ways of lacing shoes there are lots of different ways to lay a simple floor or wall tile the effects can be very attractive. Take for example just rotating a square tile by 45 degrees so that the tile becomes a diamond.
You don’t use any more tiles and the effect looks more professional.
Now lets look at an oblong tile. You can lay them in straight lines, like bricks or slightly more off set so that you provide a lot more interest for very little additional work.
Other patterns are also easily made.
