    Modern Tiles Design - Give a Contemporary Appearance to Your Space

    Tiles have a great impact on the look as well as the functionality of the space. Manufactured using the latest technology, the tiles at Orientbell Tiles are durable and long-lasting. The tiles also have great features such as ease of cleaning, minimal maintenance, and low water porosity. Available in a wide variety of materials, these tiles can be used outdoors and indoors in residential as well as commercial settings.

    Tiles can be used on both floors and walls, depending upon their properties. As a rule of thumb, all floor tiles can be used on walls, but not all wall tiles can be used on floors. This is because floor tiles require a certain degree of strength and durability to withstand foot traffic, which certain wall tiles do not possess.

    The anti skid tiles, germ-free tiles, and forever tiles are highly popular – thanks to their amazing features. Anti-skid tiles come with a special coating that increases traction and reduces the chances of accidents. Germ-free tiles come with an anti-microbial layer that fights and kills 99% of the germs that come in contact with the surface of the tile. Forever tiles are manufactured using a patent-pending formula that lends the tile extreme strength and makes the surface resistant to all kinds of scratches – you can try to scratch the surface of these tiles with a sharp knife and fail.  Don’t believe us? See for yourself!

    The tiles are also available in almost seven different finishes and each finish comes with its own set of advantages. Matte finish floor tiles can provide a stable surface for you to walk on, while glossy finish tiles can brighten up a dark space. Choose the finish based on your needs.  

    The different designs also make it easy for you to find a tile that works well with your style and theme. You can opt for subtle marble tile floors to add opulence to your space or designer highlighter tiles to add a touch of whimsy to the space.

    How Do I Choose The Right Tile?

    Choosing the right tiles for space is very important – it can make or break the space. With the sheer variety of tiles available in different materials, finishes, sizes, shapes, colours, and designs, making the right choice might seem like a tall order. But, do not fret; here are some handy tips to keep in mind while choosing tiles for your space:

    1. One Space At A Time:

    You may be renovating a large space with multiple different zones or a small space with a single zone – it is important to zero down on a single zone and choose the tiles for the space. For example, if you are renovating your home don’t try to choose tiles for your living room, bathroom, and kitchen together. Rather, dedicate time to each space and choose the tile for that space before moving on to the next. This is not only because each different space has different requirements that you need to keep in mind, but also to reduce the confusion and commotion in your mind.

    2. Zero In On The Material:

    Once you’ve decided on the space you are looking for tiles for, narrow down your choices by selecting a material. Now, the choice of material will depend on your requirements for the space. Spaces such as kitchens and offices will require more durable materials since they see heavy foot traffic, while in spaces such as bedrooms you can make do with materials that are not as durable.

    3. Size:

    Tile size is a very important factor to consider while choosing tiles. In large spaces, such as living rooms or foyers, opt for large tiles that will have minimal grout lines and will further emphasize the roominess of the space. For small spaces, such as bathrooms, opt for smaller tiles to reduce wastage.

    4. Colour Choice:

    Colours play a great role in dictating the mood of a space. Your colour scheme should reflect the environment that you are trying to create and work well with the colours of the rest of your space, namely furniture and upholstery. It is a good idea to mix things up and use tiles to create a contrast by opting for light tiles to complement darker furniture and vice versa.

        Yes, tiles can be waterproof, but they need to be properly sealed and treated to ensure that they remain waterproof. For an example, porcelain and stone tiles are best suited for wet spaces like bathrooms or showers as they are naturally more impervious to water compared to other types of tiles. It is important to note that even though the tiles can be waterproof, the grout between them can still be quite porous, so it is important to use a sealant to waterproof the grout as well.

      • The nature and size of the tile, along with the area in which it is installed, all affect how long it will last.

      • a. What causes tiles to fall?

        There are numerous factors that will cause tiles to fall. The most common reason for tiles to fall off is improper installation, which happens when people mistakenly believe that placing one type of tile is the same as installing any other tile. Another significant factor is water infiltration, which can penetrate the grout and seep behind the tiles, allowing mildew to develop and damaging the adhesive. Tiles falling off can also be caused by poor adhesive and improper cleaning.

      • b. Are tiles low maintenance?

However, the kind of tiles utilised will determine how much upkeep is necessary and the precise techniques to be employed.

To avoid stains and wear, natural stone tiles like marble and granite may need to be cleaned and sealed more frequently.

      • In the majority of cases, tile is preferable to marble. Tile is a superior option for high-traffic areas since it is more durable to damage and does not catch dirt, and is less prone to stains and scratches. In addition to being more affordable and simpler to install than marble, tile is a more economical choice. However, if you want a more premium appearance, marble may offer a beautiful, elegant aspect to any place. As a result, it might be the best choice. The ideal option between tile and a marble will ultimately depend on your spending limit, preferred look, and intended function.
      • a. Are bigger or smaller tiles better?

      • b. Which is better: tile or granite?

When choosing between the two materials for your spaces, it's crucial to take your budget, way of life, and preferred aesthetics into account. To have a much more affordable and durable option, you can opt for granite design tile.

    • 19. How Do I Choose The Right Tile?
      • Choosing the right tiles for space is very important – it can make or break the space. With the sheer variety of tiles available in different materials, finishes, sizes, shapes, colours, and designs, making the right choice might seem like a tall order. But, do not fret; here are some handy tips to keep in mind while choosing tiles for your space:

        1. One Space At A Time:

          You may be renovating a large space with multiple different zones or a small space with a single zone – it is important to zero down on a single zone and choose the tiles for the space. For example, if you are renovating your home don’t try to choose tiles for your living room, bathroom, and kitchen together. Rather, dedicate time to each space and choose the tile for that space before moving on to the next. This is not only because each different space has different requirements that you need to keep in mind, but also to reduce the confusion and commotion in your mind.

        2. Zero In On The Material:

          Once you’ve decided on the space you are looking for tiles for, narrow down your choices by selecting a material. Now, the choice of material will depend on your requirements for the space. Spaces such as kitchens and offices will require more durable materials since they see heavy foot traffic, while in spaces such as bedrooms you can make do with materials that are not as durable.

        3. Size:

          Tile size is a very important factor to consider while choosing tiles. In large spaces, such as living rooms or foyers, opt for large tiles that will have minimal grout lines and will further emphasize the roominess of the space. For small spaces, such as bathrooms, opt for smaller tiles to reduce wastage.

        4. Colour Choice:

          Colours play a great role in dictating the mood of a space. Your colour scheme should reflect the environment that you are trying to create and work well with the colours of the rest of your space, namely furniture and upholstery. It is a good idea to mix things up and use tiles to create a contrast by opting for light tiles to complement darker furniture and vice versa.
