Tiles Adelaide

When building or renovating your home choosing your tiles can be a daunting experience, after all, they are more often than not going to be a surface that you and your family will use the most every day.

Here at Aurees Tiles, we have a stunning range to ensure that your home will be both functional and striking. Below we have put a list together of the top five tips to help you choose the best tiles for your new home or renovation.


Think About the Rooms

Whether it be your living area, laundry, bathroom, kitchen or even your entire house, choose an option that complements the look you want to create for that space. For example, tiles that are larger instantly add style and a sensation of space in your living areas. However, placing larger sizes in small rooms such as your bathroom can have the opposite effect.


Make Sure the Tile You Choose Comes in A Range of Sizes

Larger options that start from 600mm in size and larger look fantastic in an open living space such as living room, while smaller sizes of around 300 mm create a beautiful look and help with your water drainage in your home’s wet areas. By choosing the same style and colour in a variety of sizes can help create a seamless transition throughout your home.


Choose your finish carefully

By using a matte or natural finish, you can create an earthy appeal, while a gloss finish provides your home with a modern, silky look. However, it is important to keep in mind that dust is more likely to show up on floors with a glossy finish but the luxurious shine throughout your home may just be worth the effort.


Select your Feature

By choosing a feature tile for your home, you can create a stunning aesthetic and create interest in your home. Feature designs can be included on floors and walls, but it is important to make sure the surrounding colours blend in well with pattern and colour choices of your feature designs.


Enjoy A Timber Look Without The Hassle

Wood look tiles are being increasingly popular and offer you a fantastic alternative to timber floorboards. Wood-look styles are not only waterproof, but they are much easier to keep clean.

At Aurees Tiles we have a tremendous range of wood look designs ranging from lighter through to deeper tones, making them perfect for any home design.
