First, there's the color and pattern of your tiles. The texture and finish add another dimension. Grouting will also affect the overall result on how the tiles will look once installed.

It's the combination of these elements that makes each tile installation a unique statement. Remember that your tiling will form part of your overall decorating theme, so plan the entire look in advance.

Where Are You Tiling?

residential tiles


Residential Spaces


Since residential spaces have less foot traffic ceramic tiles are recommended here. Ceramic tiles are also easier to cut and install due to the smaller size and thickness. They are both crack resistant and impervious to moisture, which makes it a durable addition to any kitchen or bathroom design. Ceramic kitchen tile features a glazed surface that provides an added layer of protection against drops and stains.

Commercial Spaces


Commercial areas have more foot traffic compared to a busy Kenyan home. Here we recommend porcelain tiles. Porcelain tiles are denser than ceramic, and therefore less porous. Meaning they're harder, therefore more durable and absorb less water. Since they are less dense, they are also less brittle and will be able to withstand hard knocks from constant foot traffic and also wheels from trolleys and machinery.

Glazed Ceramic Tiles

Unglazed Tiles

These tiles usually have natural colors and a smooth, matt surface. They are available in dark or light brown colors.

Terracotta, for example, may have a rough surface or it may be polished to a high sheen, which intensifies its natural color.

Unglazed tiles have a completely different character and appeal, their properties make them ideal for different applications, including cottages, verandas, balconies and terraces.

We strongly recommend you seal this beautiful earthy tile with a tile sealer such as the TFC Deep Seal.
