Looking Good with tiles
Just how gorgeous are tiles?
They’re one of the most practical materials ever made and have proven their durability and beauty over thousands of years.
The Romans used ceramics to create magnificent decorative effects in their palaces and public areas. Floors tiled in ancient Rome are still in use today.
Tiles are used across the entire home; bathrooms, kitchens and laundries, bedrooms, walls and outdoors. With new manufacturing methods like digital printing and large format cutting, there are tiles for every style, design and space – up or down, in or out.
A great investment with a guarantee
For such an economical choice, tiles are a great long term investment. With careful selection you’ll enhance your home and add to its capital value. At Beaumont’s all our first grade tiles are guaranteed for 10 years.
Great for allergies
Tiles are an incredible solution for people who suffer allergies and asthma. Plus they’re easy to keep clean, even with natural products.
Right tile, right project
With so many different types of tiles it’s super important to choose the right ones; make sure the tile is suitable for your area (for example, check they’re made for a wet area or if some resistance to slip is necessary) and check the wear rating.
At Beaumont’s we’d rather lose a sale than sell the wrong ones.
And while most tilers know their trade, they may not be up with the latest technical developments, so if your tiler tells you something different to what your tiler merchant has said – get another opinion.
Most flooring can become slippery when wet. Surface dust can also contribute to this. Floor mats can help as can tiles with a skid resistant surface. Remember ‘tho a rougher surface will take a little more effort to clean.
Tiling for cooler climates
Hotwire Under Tile Heating is perfect for the Australian climate. The 4mm thick element is placed directly on top of the sub ﬂoor (rather than the traditional "In Slab" heating) with the tiles simply laid over the top. As the heating element is so close to the ﬂoor surface you can warm your home in only 30-60 minutes. The fully programmable touch screen thermostat comes with a timer to program your under tile heating to switch on when you require it, so when you arrive home or get up in the morning your home is luxuriously warm and waiting for you. Under Tile Heating is ideal if you are renovating as only the ﬂoor surface needs to be replaced to facilitate installation. You can cover an area as small as 1m2 through to the biggest living areas, and with running costs as low as 2c per m2 per hour (subject to electricity tariffs) it’s an amazing cost-effect way to heat your home.
How much should you pay for tiles
Tiles last a long time so a few dollars saved by buying inferior product may come back to haunt you. While we encourage you to consider bargains, we think it’s worth paying a bit extra to get your dream space looking good.
