Tile is one of the oldest man-made products used for decoration, finishing and design work. It doesn’t get older than that, some 2000 BCE somewhere in the area of Indus Valley in Mesopotamia out far ancestors were doing the same thing we do now, making and installing tiles. It may have been a different time and different tiles, but the idea was and is still the same.
4000 years later after men walked on the moon and the ideas of entertainment changed from fighting tigers and lions to watching YouTube, we are still hard at it, making and installing tiles.
The use of tiles has also evolved from basic decorative material to more functional purpose driven products. We use tiles for flooring, walls and showers, decorative borders, mosaics and large scale designs. Tiles will differ by location base on types of clay used and how it was kiln fired. Some types are better suited for certain purposes base on design features, colours, forms and shapes.
Some examples, there are wall only tiles, those are tiles that can only be installed on wall and are not designed for flooring due to strength and finish. There are flooring only tiles that can technically be used for both floors and walls but their main purpose is better suited as flooring tiles. There are also mosaic tiles and decorative tiles that may be installed on floors and walls, but are mainly used for decorative looks like backsplashes.
Installation of any tiles is both a skill and an art at the same time. It’s one of the aspects of the construction renovation trade that requires years of hands on experience and knowledge. Although home renovations projects can be tackled by the homeowner themselves, tiling is not one of them. If you are looking for quality results, professional care and attention to detail in your next tiling project, the professional tiling installers at Miracle Dream Homes are highly recommended.
