The Aria series from Spain boasts the rustic charm of hand-worked clay in a modernised subway tile.
Surface Finish - Gloss Tiles
Gloss tiles are glazed and have a reflective/mirror shine, making your rooms seem larger and brighter. The gloss finish gives a high-impact, glamorous look. The slippery nature of gloss tiles makes them ideal for use on kitchen backsplashes, bathroom walls and fireplaces. These areas tend to get grimy very fast and the surface of glossy tiles makes for easy and quick cleaning.
Material - Ceramic
Ceramic tiles are made from clay that is quarried, prepared and then poured into a mould. These tiles are available in diverse sizes, colours, textures, designs and styles to suit varied preferences. These elegant tiles offer timeless look to aspirational home and office spaces. They are impervious to extreme temperatures and corrosion. Ideal for use on floors and walls in living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms; in the long run, ceramic is affordable and a perfect choice for DIY homeowners. You can lay them by using the right adhesive, grout and silicone sealant. A major differentiator of ceramic tiles is that they are environment-friendly and don't require harsh chemicals for cleaning.
Edge - Pressed Edge
Pressed tiles are manufactured using a standard pressing and firing process in a mould. This means the size of these tiles varies slightly and allowance needs to be made while laying them. Larger grout joints are required when laying pressed tiles and it is because of this that their installation is faster and cheaper. These tiles hide imperfections in the substrate whereas rectified tiles highlight them. The ease of manufacturing makes pressed edge tiles generally a cheaper buy.
