Wall tiles and Cladding for your kitchen and bathroom


How to choose the tiles for coating the walls of your house

Ceramic tiles are flat pieces of little thickness made of clays, silica, fluxes, dyes and other raw materials. They are generally used as floor coverings and  wall and façade cladding. The clays used in the composition of the support can be
red cooking or white cooking. The tiles, both pavement and wall covering, are waterproof ceramic pieces that are usually constituted by a clay support and a vitreous coating: ceramic enamel. Red
paste is recommended mainly for indoor projects, especially for areas where the wear and tear will be less, since it is usually softer. For this reason, it is more common to see this type of material in ceramic coatings and interior walls. Medium or small format is the most common in red paste. For its part,
white paste is a trend in the ceramic sector for aesthetics and distinction. Its non-colored finish allows to give good results in tiles and painted ceramic pieces. This result is given thanks to the composition of the clays, without oxides and with high iron content, which are used in its manufacture. It is also a material used for large formats for its resistance, which also allows it to be used for both interior and exterior decoration.

What types of exterior ceramic coating are there?

Normally, ceramic wall covering is usually used in internal areas of the house, such as bathrooms and kitchens. However, it is becoming a trend to use ceramic coating on exterior walls.

To choose the one that best suits the exteriors of your home it will be necessary to know the different types that exist. The four main styles are Stoneware, Porcelain Stoneware, Tiles and Clay (or Baked Clay).

Mud is a material cooked at high temperatures and dried outdoors. It is a good material for outdoor areas such as porches or terraces, especially those that have a rustic style, because it is a natural coating.

The tiles provide high levels of absorption -between 10% and 15%- and are usually bright in appearance due to their enameled effect.

On the other hand, normal stoneware -it is also known as enameled stoneware-, is a type of stoneware made of red or white paste, with absorption levels between 3% and 6%. It has been the material that has been used in Spanish houses until porcelain became a trend.

Features of ceramic coating for bathroom walls

Ceramic wall covering for bathroom has always tended to be tile. And it is that this type of material has been the most economical and the one that provided the best performance.

However, nowadays we are not only looking for cheap and functional materials, but we are advocating something that matters more and more to us: design and durability. And that is precisely what porcelain coating gives us.

Of the ceramic coatings for kitchens and bathrooms, porcelain stoneware is the best option if what you are looking for is a hard and resistant material. Unlike normal stoneware, this coating has a practically non-existent porosity and, therefore, a zero absorption -around 0.5%-.

Ceramic coatings: price and quality

When talking about the price of a coating it is necessary to take into account several factors. On the one hand, you will have to know the materials it carries, the durability it provides, how resistant it is, its level of water absorption, in addition to the design and if it has enameled or non-slip layers.
