Where Can You Buy Tile [UPD]

Kamila Chalfin at Tile Giant (opens in new tab) says: 'Even if you have a whole box left, keep them somewhere safe rather than returning them to a store. Tiles are printed in batches and new styles are issued every year, so if you need an extra one in the future, the chances are you might struggle finding an exact match!

'Even if the style is still available, the batch will be different and may not match the shade exactly. Remember, if you drop something heavy and crack a tile in a few years time, you may want to change just one tile rather than redoing the whole floor. If you have a few spares in your cellar or attic this will be very easy.'

Amanda Telford, Marketing Manager at CTD Tiles (opens in new tab), agrees: 'Having spares to hand will cover you for any unexpected repairs or replacements needed in the future, avoiding the need to retile your whole room.'

Tiles come in a vast range of sizes, from 7.5 x 15cm metro bricks to large format 60 x 120cm tiles. Whilst these mean you have the freedom to create your perfect home, picking the wrong size can mean the difference between the success or failure of a project.

Hamish adds: 'Another thing to consider is grout lines as these will make an impact on the final result. The smaller the tile, the more grout lines and this can make the space look busy. If lots of grout lines are unavoidable, consider using a colored grout in a similar shade to the tile to help them flow in more symmetry.'

Hamish explains: 'Ordering either a swatch sample (a small cut of the full tile) or a full tile sample (the best for helping you envisage how it will look in your home), will help you to see the true color, texture and finish on a tile.'

'Handmade encaustic cement tiles will naturally have a slight colour gradient. Using natural dyes, they are rich in color and depth. The cheaper versions on the market are often very flat, and very bright in tone using artificial colors. A better option here would be a ceramic tile which are easier to maintain and more cost effective than a low-priced encaustic cement option.'

'Where you are adding tiles will influence the type of tile you will want to go for,' says Hamish. 'For example, is the tile going to be used externally or internally? If externally, is the material weatherproof and slip resistant? If internally, is the tile suitable for heavy foot traffic, can it be used with underfloor heating, does it need sealing regularly or is it light enough to be used as a wall covering? You might love a product but it's so important to check that a tile will work in the intended space, the last thing you want are cracked tiles or stone that is slippery when laid in an unsuitable area.'

Amanda Telford agrees, saying: 'It's so important to take into consideration the right tile material for floors in high traffic areas such as kitchens, hallways, conservatories and other living areas with high usage and footfall.

'We would always recommend using porcelain tiles over ceramic tiles in these areas. Porcelain tiles are much more hardwearing and capable of withstanding every day, busy living and will last for years. Ceramic tiles are slightly less hardwearing but perfectly suited to any wall application, or low footfall areas with light or barefoot traffic such as small bathrooms or cloakrooms.'

'When choosing the right tiler for your project, consider someone who is experienced in the particular material you have chosen. Whilst porcelain and ceramic tiles are most commonly used, large format, encaustic, glass and natural stone tiles can come with their own set of challenges during fitting.

'Once you receive your order, check that you have all your tiles and that they are in good condition. If you opted for natural stone, please remember there may be some variations in color, tone and natural character which make them so beautiful and unique to each project. We recommend that you shuffle tiles from different boxes so that you have a uniform effect across the whole surface.'

Hamish explains: 'Natural stone, encaustic, crackle glaze and terracotta products will require sealing. Once your tiles are installed, you will need to use an impregnating sealant for protection against fading and staining, such as Stone Essentials Stain Block (or for crackle glaze tiles, a crackle glaze sealant).

'Not only will grout color affect the final project result, picking the wrong colour could also affect and even damage your tiles,' says Hamish. 'We recommend using lighter colored grouts for most products, in particular natural stone, encaustic and terrazzo tiles, rather than black or bright coloured as these can cause staining in the natural pores of the tiles.

'When choosing a grout color, try to match it to the main colour or background colour of your chosen tiles and always ask your retailer for advice on installation, for example we always recommend that Zellige, Bejmat and Terrazzo tiles are installed with little to no gap in between for the best effect.'

The word azulejo means polished stone in Arabic, referring to the origins of these now considered very Portuguese glazed ceramic tiles. Ceramic tiles started being used in Portugal and Spain in the 13th century, when part of the Iberian Peninsula was still being ruled by the Moors of Northern Africa.

Until the 19th century tiles were mostly used inside constructions, and it was around the 1840s that their use to cover buildings and decorate outdoor walls became widespread. During this time, tiles became prevalent not only in buildings of public relevance such as churches and palaces, but also in residential properties where the bourgeoisie would live, thus setting them apart. It was common for the newly rich, like entrepreneurs and families who had been abroad in countries such as Brazil and had returned to Portugal with big fortunes, to decorate their homes with intricate tile panels that would make their buildings and thus their role in society an outstanding one.

When you see azulejos in Lisbon nowadays, they will be a mix of ancient tiles as well as more contemporary creations, both used to give personality to public areas like parks and churches, or beautify building façades, as well as to decorate the inner parts of buildings, as whole mosaic walls or simply as framed murals that stand out like paintings. Visit our Instagram to find some of our favorite places to spot azulejos in Lisbon.

When you have a tiled wall at home with pieces from former times and a tile cracks and needs a replacement, it can be difficult to find the exact same design. After all, there are thousands of collections with a variety of colors, shapes and reliefs that might have come from just about anywhere in Portugal. Cortiço e Neto has an incredibly large collection of tiles so if you need to find a specific design, your chances are higher around here. Their catalog covers fairly common contemporary tiles, as well as rarer older ones.
