Ceramic Floor Design Ideas

By Ceramic Design



  • Ceramic tile comes in four main forms: glazed ceramic, porcelain, quarry and terra-cotta. Glazed ceramic tiles are coated in hard, glassy glazes that you can tint with any color. It’s often used in mosaic patterns and easily showcases regional decorative styles. Porcelain ceramic tile is fired at higher temperatures than all other ceramic, making it more durable and resistant to scratches and breakage. Quarry ceramic tile is simply made of unglazed ceramic and has the look of stone. Terra-cotta ceramic tile is also unglazed and thus retains the color of the clay. It’s very porous, so make sure to seal it.

Mosaic

  • One of the most traditional mosaic floor designs is the checkerboard look, achieved by laying two colors in an alternating pattern across the floor. White tile partnered with another pale color tile is a refreshing twist on the classic black and white pattern. Glazed or porcelain ceramic works best in mosaic design, because the glaze provides any color possibility. Tiles also come in a myriad of geometric shapes, so conceivably, you can lay floor tile in the same pattern as a quilt or oriental rug pattern, for example. A professional tile artist can reproduce or create an original geometric pattern or even set a painting-like picture onto the floor by shaping each individual tile. Mosaic design also includes randomly placed color tiles, as if the colors are scattered as they’re laid, punctuated by a surprise element, like a few individual hand-painted tiles.

Shape

  • Design by shape works well with all ceramic tile types, but is especially effecting with terra-cotta or quarry tiles. Since these tiles are unsealed, they come in the color of the clay they’re made from. Several shades are available, including red, yellow, gray and orange. These tiles are manufactured in a variety of shapes, and you can lay them into practically any pattern. Squares, rectangles, hexagons, triangles, all of various sizes are used. Putting small tiles of one shape together to create a different large shape is a very effective design strategy. One such idea is to lay four interlocking rectangles into the shape of a square, and place a small square in the middle. On a staircase, interlocking tile triangles on the face of the stair in a dark color with a light-colored grout can really emphasize the design.

Single Tone

  • Porcelain, the most durable of all ceramic tiles, is used more often in flooring than any other tile. It’s often sold in large pieces, which makes it a good option for single-tone floors. Large white porcelain tiles with white or gray grout is a very clean single-tone look. You can also manufacture porcelain to look like marble for those who want that expensive look at a ceramic price. Smaller, rectangular porcelain tiles of a single striking color—like electric blue—running lengthwise down a hallway is an unexpected way to use color. The shape and direction of the tile also leads the eye through the space.

How to Paint Ceramic Tile

By Ceramic Design



You can transform a kitchen or bathroom if you paint the ceramic tile. If the ceramic tile is old and dingy or just a color that you don’t like, you can get a fresh look with a careful covering of paint.Cautions Before You Paint Ceramic Tile

  • Do not paint a ceramic tile floor unless the main area of traffic is covered by a decorative rug. Shoes and dirt will cause the paint to scratch and wear off.
  • Do not paint ceramic tile in a shower or near a bathtub. The constant moisture will cause the paint to peel off.
  • To preserve the painted tile finish, you will always need to use a cutting board on a countertop.
  • Never place hot pans on a painted ceramic tile counter. The heat will cause the painted finish to bubble and peel.
  • The surface of your painted ceramic tile will be only as good as the base you paint over. If the grout is broken or cracked, repair it at least 48 hours ahead of the painting day. If the tile is cracked or gouged, fill the imperfections.
  • It will take about 2 weeks for the paint to thoroughly dry and cure. You must be patient so that the surface will last.
  • If you don’t do proper preparations, you will not be happy with the finished product. Take the time to clean, sand, dust, dry, and paint very carefully.

Tips for Painting Ceramic Tile

  • Since the paint could eventually wear or scratch off, painting ceramic tile should be reserved for vertical surfaces or countertops.
  • Select a top-quality 100% acrylic semi-gloss primer and paint. You’ll be spending several days on this project so you should use the best materials available.
  • You can choose any color you want and custom-match the paint to other decorative elements in your home.
  • When painting ceramic tile, the primer and paint should be slightly thin and you should apply several thin layers rather than one thick layer of paint. Use a brush to cut in the edges and roll the surface with a lint-free low-nap roller.
  • For a more realistic look, use a small artist brush to paint narrow contrasting grout lines after the final coat has dried thoroughly. This will require a lot of patience but the results will be amazing. You can use a straight edge to follow the grout lines.

Equipment for Painting Ceramic Tile

  • Top-quality tinted acrylic paint primer
  • Top-quality acrylic semi-gloss interior paint
  • Top quality urethane
  • Heavy-duty rubber gloves
  • TSP or other heavy-duty cleaner
  • Scrubber
  • Sponge
  • Painter’s tape
  • Very fine grit (220-grit) sandpaper, electric sander optional
  • A cloth to clean up paint drips
  • Lots of clean water
  • Rags
  • A paint brush to cut-in around edges
  • A high-quality, lint-free, low nap paint roller
  • An artist brush to paint the grout lines

By Ceramic Design

Maybe you want to retile your bathroom, kitchen, counter top, backsplash or shower. In any case, installing ceramic wall tiles can give the room a whole new look and feel. Here’s how to install ceramic wall tile:

  1. Mark lines on the wall.To start installing ceramic wall tile, first you need to find the center of the wall and ‘dry fit’ your tiles to see if the pattern ends similarly on the edges. Use a pencil to mark vertical and horizontal lines where appropriate. You want the tile size to be consistent as they approach each end point.
  2. Apply the adhesive.Apply the tile adhesive to the wall with the notched trowel, starting in the middle of the wall. Set the tiles into the adhesive and place the spacers in-between each tile as you go. Be sure to give each tile a little twist to ensure a good bond with the adhesive. Cut the tiles as needed to fit on the ends. You can also use sandpaper to smooth out the tile edges if they are sharp after you cut them.
  3. Let it dry.Let the tiles set in the adhesive overnight.
  4. Mix the grout.Remove the tile spacers and mix the grout according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  5. Apply the grout.Using the rubber float, apply the grout at a 45 degree angle. Wipe off excess grout with a wet sponge.
  6. Wipe clean as needed.After about an hour, check for grout haze on the tiles and wipe them clean as needed.
  7. Seal edges with caulk.Seal the edges with caulk (be sure to use a mildew resistant caulk if the tile is in an area where it will get wet).

Most of the African market in order to wear-resistant bricks, tiles mainly tiles glazed wall tiles are mainly small specifications, Europe and the United States is still mainly in high-grade. Bathroom ceramic exports declining trend, exports of high-performance technical ceramics have greater growth than previously, but the high-performance technical ceramics in Foshan ceramics industry in the proportion of the whole is not great.

He suggested that the domestic ceramic enterprises to Italy, Spain and other enterprises to learn: “The power is also a ceramics after decades of hard work before the establishment of hegemony now, they are products, specifications, and cultural connotation of the brand and so on, there are their strength and image, we should learn from their experience, raise the level of exports, and export enterprises to build a good brand name products, and continuously improve the economic value of export products. if only to imitate, then always walk in other people’s the back. “In addition, the export enterprises to strengthen inspection and quarantine agencies and communication between the countries to understand the import laws and regulations, so that problems can be resolved in a timely manner. He said that the national construction of Health Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, Foshan Ceramics Key Laboratory testing has a world-class testing equipment, the authority of professional and technical personnel, sanitary ceramics in the construction testing, certification can provide a full range of technical support.
