Frequently asked questions
What are the types of wall tiles?
While there are a variety of options for wall tiles available in the market, like ceramic, porcelain, and mosaic; digital wall tiles are easily the most durable of the lot. Also, thanks to digital printing technology, these tiles can be developed in a variety of attractive prints and designs, and so can be used to give the desired look and feel to any indoor or outdoor space.
Where can I use wall tiles?
Each space comes with its own requirements, in terms of both, functionality and style. Wall tiles are a great option for places like kitchens and bathrooms as they are water and stain-resistant and anti-skid. Make smart use of the space available to you, and integrate wall tiles into your design theme from the very start.
What are standard wall tile sizes?
While wall tiles do not come in a standard size, wall tiles are available in small and large formats, and the user has the choice to decide the size they want to use based on what looks best in their space and best complements their decor. Smaller tiles take longer to install, while larger tiles can be installed relatively quicker.
Which wall tile is the best or most durable?
Compared to floor tiles, the tiles on your wall are exposed to sunlight a lot more on a daily basis. That is why it is important to choose high quality tiles that promise great durability, to ensure that they look great for decades without fading or deteriorating. With the widest range of colours, patterns, finishes and textures, high-quality Digital Wall Tiles from Vitero give you an array of design options, with tiles that look great and are easy to maintain too.
Which tiles should be laid first, the floor tiles or the wall tiles?
Floor tiles are usually installed before the wall tiles, but based on the comfort of the owner/builder, installing the floor tiles at the end could help in preventing any damage to the floor tiles during the fitting of wall tiles.
Which cement is good for wall tiles, OPC or PPC?
OPC Cement of grade 43 is the better choice for installing wall tiles when compared to PPC as it gains initial strength quickly, which is essential for proper adhesion of tiles. PPC contains fly ash and gains strength slowly, which is why it is used for filling materials like LCC, wall plaster and concrete under floor and roof terracing.
Can you use wall tiles on the floor?
While most wall tiles can't be used on the floor, most floor tiles can be used on the wall, assuming the wall can bear the weight of the tile. This is a great way to incorporate unique designs into your decor, such as by using large-format flooring tiles on the wall or on both the wall and the floor.
What is the best layout or pattern for wall tile?
There are several options that can really enhance the look of your tile and add unique interest to your space. So, let’s get into the popular patterns for you to consider.
STRAIGHT LAY PATTERN
The most commonly used tile pattern, and the easiest to do. The tiles are simply laid side by side in a straight line, to give an overall even grid pattern. It’s a good choice of pattern for rooms where you don’t want the tiles to distract from other design features.
RUNNING BOND/BRICK PATTERN
This is another simple and attractive option for any space. The end of each tile is lined up with the center of the tile above and below it to create staggered grout lines. It’s commonly used on backsplashes and walkways.
Other patterns include HERRINGBONE PATTERN, CHECKERBOARD PATTERN, and WINDMILL & PINWHEEL PATTERNS
