Choosing the best tile for your job is dependent on several individual project factors.

After finding your perfect tile the next, (often overlooked) step is to choose the appropriate adhesive to ensure a clean, beautiful and long-lasting job. Selecting a suitable type to invest in goes hand in hand with your preferred tile. For example, ‘thin set’ adhesives are generally used for typical flooring tiles. In contrast, for smaller kitchen backsplash tiles one would look to stronger brands.
