Why Choose Porcelain Paving?

What Is Tile Lipping and How To Avoid It

The London Tile Co.

Lipping is not something most of us have heard of, but you have probably noticed it before without knowing the correct name or why it happens. Lipping, or lippage, is the term used to describe the difference in height of the installed tiles. This can be particularly unsightly if measures are not taken to avoid it, and can even cause damage to the tiles or become a tripping hazard. How does lipping occur?

Happy New Year! Many of us have resolved to eat better or exercise more, but we think a better resolution for the new year would be to give your home a makeover.

Five Ways To Create a Feature Wall With Tiles

Can I Use Porcelain Tiles Outside?

The London Tile Co.

The short answer to this question is yes. Porcelain is ideally suited to use outdoors as it is extremely strong and hard-wearing. Often natural stone or concrete slabs are used on patios, however these materials can require regular cleaning and sealing, and can look a little old fashioned. If you are looking for a long-lasting and modern looking alternative to traditional paving products, porcelain is the perfect choice.
