Tiles can be applied to many stable surfaces (often referred to as substrates), once the right preparation has taken place. Tiles are rigid and will not bend or flex. So in order to stop them from fracturing or becoming loose the surface needs to be firm and secure.
Tiles have become an extremely popular choice of décor. Manufacturers have risen to the increase in demand and hunger for varied designs with a myriad of different sizes and styles. Choosing the right size tile for a project can be a very daunting and personal decision. However, there are some basics that should be considered and may help you to narrow down the selection and put you on the right track.
