Wall ties mainly come in a few different tile materials, these include matt, gloss and mainly ceramic. One of the best materials to be used for wall tiles is the ceramic type, ceramic wall tiles are made from clay which is then glazed. This means that the tile is able to withstand a lot of wear and tear, this is the tile to go for if your walls are going to be under continuous strain from different things.
The best bit about ceramic wall tiles is the fact that they are long lasting and do not need very much maintenance and that you can have so many different finishes and decorative styles that you can choose from, if anything there is actually millions of different styles that you can have. This is one of the main reasons for a huge increase of people wanting to get these kinds of wall tiles.
Another good reason for using wall tiles is that you are able to mix and match the tiles that you use. Therefore you do not need to go with just one type of tile so that you can make decorative patterns etc on your walls. You could for example be using mainly plain black wall tiles around all of your wall and then throw in the odd decorative tile which may look like you have thrown a picture up on the wall. This means that wall tiles are easily configurable to create your own crazy design if you want to.
One of the best practices to put into use when designing or making rooms with wall tiles is that if you are implementing them into a small room then you should use smaller sized tiles and vice versa with a large room you should generally (not always) use larger wall tiles. Larger wall tiles are best used in large rooms because the tiling time can be greatly reduced and the design will not look as compact as if you had used small tiles in the room, except this is the effect that you are after.
Once you have worked out how many wall tiles you are going to need for a certain room it is recommended that you add an extra 10% of the final amount on top so that you have extra tiles. One of the reasons for this is because if you need to replace any tiles at any point (which you will more than likely need to do) you can quickly and easily without needing to go and buy more from a store.
Once you have all the tiles that you need then you will also need to get some adhesives and grout which puts together the tile and the surface that you are putting the wall tiles on. When you are fitting wall tiles then you are going to probably require a ready mixed wall adhesive so that the tiles are going to be able to put up with water or condensation that can hit the tiles in rooms such as the kitchen or the bathroom.
I hope that this information will help you with your decisions to designing and buying wall tiles for anywhere you want to apply this.
