Laying tiles is perhaps one of the biggest challenges in furnishing a home or office space for both investors and contractors in financial and technical terms, whether it is a new facility or a renovation of an existing one.
Ceramics, porcelain, terracotta are just some of the materials which we use to make modern tiles. Tiles should primarily be functional for the purpose and space they are, first of all, made for, such as bathrooms, toilets, kitchens, hallways, floors, walls, etc. At the same time, tiles play an important role in exceptional fashion and design detail, reflecting your personal identity’s imprint.
After deciding to install new tiles in their home or business space, most people invest a significant amount of time, energy, and money to choose the best possible design and quality of new tiles, which exactly match their wishes and expectations. That somehow has become a take for granted as logical and normal because, after all, tiles are not or should not be something that changes every day.
Simultaneously, the sad reality is that most people do not devote the same amount of energy and time to choosing the right and proven company or person who will install their carefully selected and often costly tiles. In practice, when people find an adequate master or a company with great recommendations, they try to save some money on finishing works. In most cases, this is a recipe for very frustrating, costly and long-term mistakes that are generally almost impossible to correct once the tile adhesive has set.
From our vast experience in laying tiles, we would single out two crucial things that we want people to understand.
Firstly, choose a proven company or a proven master with great recommendations and go through all the details of your wishes and expectations regarding tiles because you will still have to look at them and use them daily for a long time.
Secondly, the selling price of tiles does not reflect their actual quality and real value. A high retail price is not a guarantee that these tiles are suitable for your needs or they are good as their price, or the retailer who sells them suggests they are.
