Choosing the right tiles…

Your choice of tiling is hugely important when it comes to the final look of your kitchen or bathroom. We can’t choose your tiles but we can point you in the right direction and then ensure that they’re perfectly laid. We’ve used a number of retailers over the years and always find ourselves returning to Rogers Ceramics in Haywards Heath. Call them on 01444 458157. We can always arrange to collect your tiles free of charge.

Ceramic tiles have been used since ancient times; they are hardwearing, easy to clean, water resistant, hygienic and very attractive. There are several different types of tile available and they vary in their technical properties. Ceramic tiles sold in the United Kingdom should conform to the British Standard for ceramic tiles, BS EN 14411.

It is essential that you select the correct tile for your situation:


Glazed tiles are the obvious choice for walls in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry areas. Glazed tiles are attractive on conservatory floors and in reception rooms but may not be suitable for potentially wet or outdoor use or heavy traffic floor areas.


Generally used in domestic and industrial installations and are available with a slip resistant surface profile for floor tiling in wet areas. They are usually wear, stain and frost resistant; making them ideal for laundry and utility rooms, bathrooms, playrooms and garages.


Extremely attractive and very hardwearing tiles that have extremely low water absorbency. Available as wall or floor tiles, sometimes glazed often with good anti-slip properties, they can be used internally and, providing they are slip resistant, externally. These tiles are suitable for domestic and commercial use.


Made from natural clay, some are frost resistant and they may be used for floors internally and externally. Their natural clay surface usually provides good slip resistance and they are extremely hard wearing.


Small pieces of ceramic, natural stone or glass usually sold in sheets on a mesh backing or paper facing for ease of fixing.


Natural stone tiles include limestone, marble, granite, slate, travertine quartzite and sandstone. Whilst some natural stone tiles are extremely hard wearing the performance of these materials does vary.
