What You Need to Know When It Comes to Tiling a Space in Your Home

Preparation is the most crucial element in the process, whether it is your floors or walls. Accurately measuring your area will help determine how many tiles are required for your project and help things run smoothly without complications.


We have listed a few tips and tricks to ensure you always get the suitable tiles!


How ample is your space?

Firstly, you will need to determine just how ample your space is. Start by measuring your floor space, followed by wall space. You’ll need to convert metres and centimetres into square metres from here. This will make ordering your tiles easier. Our biggest tip when measuring is to do it twice to be sure.


Floor Plans

If you take your room’s measurements from the builder’s floor plans, be sure you have the most up-to-date version. Decide on the pattern and tiling technique you’re planning to use. This will influence the number of tiles you’ll need and the grout patterns and width when determining the final measurements.


When choosing tiles, bring your measurements and floor plans with you. The team at Aurees Tiles will be able to assess and assist you with the required amount.


Remove the window space, but add tiled skirtings and sills.


Always Order Extra

You should add an excess of 10–15 per cent when ordering to allow for breakages and spares. You’ll need to cut tiles to fit around aspects of your room, and the cut-offs may not be proper anywhere else. Others may become damaged during transit or blemished. Even if you end up with extra tiles, they will often be helpful later.


Consider Accessories

Also, consider any tiling accessories you want to add to ensure your project has a professional finish. Soap dishes, brass strips, and step edges will finish your tiling and give you a look like no other.
