Stretching Your Budget with Cheap Floor Tiles

If you’re in the market to recover an area of flooring in your home such as a kitchen, gardening area or bathroom, then you’ll want to read this article. We’ll discuss how to stretch your flooring budget with cheap ceramic floor tiles, how to still maintain a pleasing design, and what to look out for to make sure you’re getting the right floor covering for your purpose. After reading this article, you should be able to stay within your budget and still be pleased with the results of your flooring project.

Several Ways to Stretch Your Budget
Whether your project is for the bathroom, or laying kitchen floor tiles, there are some simple things that you’ll want to keep in mind. As you go about picking out cheap floor tiles that will work in your space, remember to think about the following:
1. Is the tile thin? Thinner tiles crack more easily.
2. Is the tile the right size for the area where you will be laying it? Smaller tiles will require more grout between them than larger tiles will.
3. Are the ceramic floor tiles you’ve selected such a deal because they are being closed out? If so, have they been discontinued? You’ll want to be very careful to make sure that you can get the quantity you’ll need, including a certain overage for repairs and replacements or any accidents that might occur during installation.

Things to Think about When You’re Picking Your Tile
Even when you’re planning on purchasing cheap floor tile to stay within your budget, you can do a number of things to increase the beauty of your choice. Your tiles don’t all have to be the same size or color. You can make your own combinations and patterns. With a little planning and thought, you can make your cheap floor tiles form wonderful interlocking patterns of rectangles of different sizes, or have them make a repeating color change that accents your cabinetry. Look for sources of inspiration in other fields that use shapes and patterns to form decorative motifs. Examples might come from an interesting brick building, or a knitting pattern, or a magazine. Keep your eyes open for that moment of inspiration.

Getting the Right Tile for the Job
Take the time to get the information you need about the tile your thinking of purchasing. Make sure it’s designed for the application you intend to use it for. A thinner tile might be fine for a kitchen splash guard, or a bathroom countertop, but might not be at all suitable for a high traffic entryway floor. If you’re planning on using it as a flooring, will it bear the weight of any standing furniture? And how will it stand up to the amount of walking it’s likely to be subjected to. These are all things to find out as you start to narrow down your choices.

The Finishing Touches
Just remember as you move toward making your choice of tile that cheap floor tiles can simply be a sign of being cost conscious. Take the time to find out what you need to know, and set your imagination free. You’ll be amazed by what you’ll be able to accomplish on your budget.
