Tile Types

We use ceramic and tumbled stone; porcelain and others upon request. Our tiles are as close to WHITE as possible as the tile acts as our “canvas” for the colors we use.

(Please note: All tile sizes and the final resulting mural size is dependent on size of the base tile used including spacers. The exact size of a completed product will vary based on tile type, spacer size and manufacture date. As well, individual tile sizes within a tile type and size will vary  slightly and therefore the final size of your product will vary. [Natural Stone tiles will have more variance] We cannot guarantee the final 'exact' size of your product. IMPORTANT: Once your art on tile is complete, the tiles should not be cut or drilled at all. Please make sure you order the final size if you need a custom fit, and we will cut to size before we manufacture!! [again within the tile size variances])

TOTALLY NEW ADDITIONS as of 3/1/2009. We now offer many new additional sizes of tiles. Please look below for these examples.

_______________________________________________________.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO

Our ceramic tiles (Ceramic Tile) are like the traditional white tiles you see in a lot of kitchens and bathrooms. The sizes we use  for all of our backsplashes are traditionally 4.25” x 4.25” OR 6” x 6”. All ceramic tiles have “spacers” that are a part of the tile. When the tiles are placed next to each other, the spacers touch and create a 1/16th of an inch grout line in-between each tile. These tiles are 1/4 inch thick.

The tumbled stone tile (can be from from this Tumbled Stone Tile to this Tumbled Stone Tile2 looks more like tumbled marble. It does have the “natural” veining and pitting throughout the tile along with some of the corners and edges being a bit rough looking. All of this gives the mural a more “old world” look and feel. We get tiles that are as close to white as possible but they have the physical visual characteristics shown in the photos above.  Their sizes are 4” x 4” OR 6” x 6”. There are NO SPACERS on these tiles…so, you may place them as close or as far apart as you would like when installing. These tiles are 3/8 inch thick. Stone is a natural product subject to variations in color, shade, veining, exact size per piece and polish. These variations are what make natural stone unique. Although this photo (above) accurately represents this species of stone, variations will occur.
 

NEW SIZES AVAILABLE: We are now offering new options for you tile art tile selections. We are offering 1, 2 and 3 inch square tile in both ceramic (click to see Ceramic 2 Inch Tile sheet) and tumbled stone (click to see Tumbled Stone 2 inch tile sheet) both on a mesh backing coming in 12 inch by 12 inch sheets. We are also now offering sheets of 1 inch tiles as well!!! There may be a slight price difference for these new tile types. We also offer larger size stone floor tiles (12x12, 18x18 and other available on request) with a non-skid finish for flooring and outdoors. (click to see Stone non-skid floor tile). As well, we are offering standard sizes of Porcelain tiles including 4 inch tiles. Prices for the larger tiles and Porcelain tiles are available on request.

COMING SOON, we will be offering a new mosaic tile offered in larger sizes. Please ask for pricing differences upon order. We also are looking into Custom color trim and molding, so ask if you are interested.

If you want to match either tile type for the rest of your wall, go to www.daltile.com and find a distributor in your area. That’s where we buy our blank tiles.  However, it is very easy to find tiles to match at just about any tile or home improvement store.

For larger projects (murals over 24x36), we can get single tiles as large as they make them in that tile type with examples of 8" x 8", 12” x 12”, 18” x 18”, 24” x 24”. Not all tile types come in all sizes, so please ask if you have any questions.


 

Finishes

We offer three finishes on our tiles. 

1)    Matte, a completely flat finish.

2)    Satin,  a semi-gloss finish.

3)    Glossy, a high gloss finish. 

Based on our experience, the satin finish is better than the matte for either tile type if your mural is going to go behind a stove or a sink (for ease of cleaning.)  The high gloss finish is usually not recommended for the tumbled stone tiles if you want to maintain the “old world” look and feel of your mural.
