All About Tile sizes
Tiles are, typically, those smooth surfaced things which one usually finds on the walls as well as floors of bathrooms and kitchens. They are of tough build, but they could be fragile, because they could break if not used with care.
But the good thing about granite is that they usually clean up easily, just wipe out stains in a breeze, and this is the reason why they are a popular choice for the interiors of kitchens and bathrooms, since these are the rooms that deal with stains a lot.
However, the problem with granites is, they can get slippery at times, or else, especially when not cleaned properly, they can develop deposits of grime, especially on the edges where the tiles don't meet. The good thing is, certain cleaners can now address this problem. Also, making sure that the area where the granites at is always clean and dry would address the problem of tile floors getting slippery and possibly causing accidents.
Tiles Dimensions for the Bathroom
The most common tiles used for the bathroom are the classic white granite that have a dimension of four inches by four inches. The color is basically meant to make bathrooms look clean and fresh looking. But there are now four by four tiles that come in other colors, such as pastel colors, as well as non conventional tile colors such as red and black.
There are also rectangular granites available for bathrooms that measure 4 inches by 6 inches, or 4 inches by 8 inches, depending on the owner's preference. This offer a more cost efficient and easier to clean alternative to the conventional classic tiles.
Another common tile used for the bathroom is the tile mat. This is actually a collection of granites, the purpose of which is to make fitting tiles inside the bathroom much more easier. Tile mats commonly have a dimension of 8 inches by 8 inches. There are also larger tile mats that come in 12 inches by 12 inches.
Tiles Dimensions for the Kitchen
The most common tiles used for kitchens is the 12 by 12 tile sizes. This is a tile that, of course, measures 12 inches by 12 inches. The good thing about this kind of tile is that, while it is square, it comes in a much bigger size than the old 4 inch by 4 inch tiles that were the most popular kitchen tiles in the past. For the corners, one could make use of cut tiles that come in 4 inch by 6 inch sizes, as well as tiles that measure 4 inches by 8 inches.
Another alternative to porcelain or marble granites is the laminated wood tile or planks, which are typically made of pine wood. This kind of tiles are usually 3 to 4 inches wide. As per the length, the manufacturers usually simply depend on the buyers to make the necessary measurements.
