Here at CPM, we’ve noticed a sustained spike in private clients requesting the services of our tilers in Devon since the turn of the year, with people looking to liven up both the inside of their property and their outdoor areas. Whether you’re looking to add sparkle to your bathroom, kitchen or an outdoor area with the addition of tiles this summer, CPM are the specialist builders to turn to.
Getting Innovative with Porcelain Tiles
Tiles have revolutionised the way we decorate our floors and walls, with the latest developments in technology enabling creativity levels to chip away at dilapidated designs and trends.
Porcelain tiles, for example, can now be made to look like timber. Not only can they take the appearance of timber, but ‘texturising’ now means that they can feel like timber too. Therefore, such porcelain tiles can now be placed in areas such as wet rooms, where timber simply isn’t a viable option.
Take decking as a further example; contemporary porcelain plank designs can be used as an alternative. They give a resplendent finish, are designed to reduce the risk of slipping and require no maintenance.
Tiles for Decking
Outdoor tiles, decking and patios can bring flamboyance to your garden area. With the wide variety of patterns and colours available, there really is no limit to how bold and imaginative you can be. Besides appearance and scope for creativity, there are many other reasons to consider outdoor tiles this summer:
- Cleanliness – Tiles are easy to keep clean; they’re impervious to warping, bleaching and staining. All they require is an occasional clean with a mop and the addition of tile cleaner every so often.
- Safety – Where wood has a tendency to become extremely slippery as moss grows, outdoor tiles have an anti slip finish, making them ideal for exterior use.
- Longevity – Softer materials used for decking are more prone to scratching and scuffing, whereas tiles won’t show these signs of wear and tear. Tiles are a long term solution and those that have been installed correctly by our Exeter tile fitters can last up to 20 years.
- Practicality – Tiles are insusceptible to water and therefore the absorption of water during the winter months is not an issue.
