Ceramic tile is not only beautiful, it’s also healthy for your home. It contains none of the chemicals that have been
in the news associated with other flooring products, and it’s long-lasting, easy to clean, fire-safe, and offers many
Made of Clay and Other Naturally-Occurring Minerals: Free of Formaldehyde, VOCs, and PVC Ceramic tile * does not contain the chemicals in other floor coverings that are receiving increased attention for their possible adverse health effects, such as formaldehyde, VOCs (volatile organic compounds) or PVC (polyvinyl chloride).
Some VOCs emitted by non-ceramic building products can contribute to a wide variety of health problems and “Sick Building Syndrome,” according to various health experts. Because ceramic tile is fired at extremely high temperatures, producing an inorganic material, it has zero VOCs
Ceramic tile * contains none of the formaldehyde found in some other floor coverings. Formaldehyde is a chemical long associated with respiratory disorders, and exposure is a particular concern for children and the elderly, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In fact, formaldehyde emissions for several wood-based building and flooring products have been federally restricted since 2011 under the Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products Act.
As a fired product, ceramic tile is formaldehyde-free and not subject to this or any other such restriction.
Ceramic tile is also free from PVC, a resin used in other types of floor coverings, and regularly a subject of concern and discussion among health experts.
The easy solution for flooring? Use ceramic tile, which is free of VOCs, formaldehyde, and PVC!
Of the many flooring choices available, ceramic tile stands out when slip/fall safety is a consideration because of the thousands of floor tile choices that are slip-resistant when wet. This is in stark contrast to floorings that, according to their manufacturers, must be kept dry in order to be slip-resistant. Additionally, ceramic tile is non-flammable and
does not produce smoke in a fire, meeting the flame spread and smoke development requirements of Section 803 of the International Building Code (IBC) for interior wall and ceiling materials.
The UL-certified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for North American-Made ceramic tile shows that North American-Made ceramic tile has the lowest environmental impact across all impact categories, when compared to other floorings with generic EPDs evaluated under the same product category rules. With a 60-year service life this makes ceramic tile both cost-effective and the best choice for reducing negative environmental impacts, resource use, and demolition waste, when compared to flooring products that need to be replaced more frequently.

Did you know that tiles are also made of glass and are available in a range of different sizes, colours and formats.
Glass is an incredible material with unique beauty and style that is hard to replicate in other materials. Nerang Tiles designs with glass tiles just as much has other types of tiles such as porcelain tiles or ceramic tiles. Why? Because glass tiles make great features and can help make the home stand out with colour and class.
What types of glass tiles are available?
There are a number of different types of glass tiles available in the tile industry. Glass tiles come in different colours, both bright and dark, and with different opacity levels that can be customised to suit a person’s design aspirations for the home. As with ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles, glass tiles come in almost all available shapes, styles and finishes that you can imagine from multi coloured mosaics to simple brick or square shapes.
Benefits of glass tiles
Versatility – In comparison to ceramic tiles or porcelain tiles, glass is a very easy material to shape and customise. This means that glass tiles can be tailored to the space you want to place it in and its colour and can be customised for your design. This versatility applies to any type of glass tile, whether you are after a wall tiles or floor tile. This means that glass tiles can be placed anywhere, kitchen backsplashes, and bathroom feature wall or fireplace hearths – there is true versatility with glass tiles.
You already know from experience that glass tiles are relatively stain resistance just like mirrors and other glass products. Easy to clean and stain resistant, glass tiles are an excellent choice for those wanting a maintenance free home.
Glass is easy to shape and mosaic sheets can be customised to be mixed in colour or shapes to your heart’s content. This, combined with the immense variety of finishes and colours allows anyone to create unique designs that match the personal expressions and imagination of any individual.
Your experience with glass will make you think that this is impossible, because glass is commonly a very fragile material .. do not drop it or it will break. Well, this is the opposite for glass tiles. Glass tiles are dense and made to be as durable as a porcelain tile or ceramic tile.
With an in-house design team, Nerang Tiles has years of experience in creating unique and beautiful designs using mosaic tiles. Visit the Nerang Tiles multi award winning showroom to see the large range of glass tiles available.
Ageing at home is the idea of being to live in your own home and community no matter your age or income in a safe, independent and comfortable manner. When achieving this lifestyle, your bathroom area is one of the most important rooms in the house to adapt for your age requirements.
Remodelling the bathroom is more than just changing the aesthetics of tiles, it is also thinking about your future. Nerang Tiles has come up with a few handy tips to help you make the right changes to your bathroom to assist you live in your own home for longer.
Step treads are a handy way to improve the slip resistance of your bathroom floor. Place them on the border areas around your bathroom or where you expect your feet to be when stepping out of the shower. Even place the step tread tile in the shower for increased grip between your feet and the shower floor.
Level access shower
Most showers were made with a raised step into them and this can cause some issues for those individuals with mobility issues. It is also more aesthetically pleasing to have a seamless floor with no raised shower border. By using a tileable wet room shower tray, you will remove any steps into the shower which will give you the option to use a wheelchair into the shower or just stroll right in without having to focus on stepping over an obstacle.
Non slip tiles
Do not forget to tile your bathroom floor with non slip tiles, or at least a ceramic tile with some sort of increased grip. This applies both for aged individuals and people with children. Bathroom tiles can become a slip hazard for anyone, no matter your age. By installing non slip tiles you will be giving yourself that little bit of extra grip and safety. When buying non slip tiles make sure they are suitable for indoors because some ceramic tiles are very difficult to clean with your residential cleaning products and may not be suitable for your bathroom floor.
Electric underfloor heating
In Australia we are not so worried about underfloor heating to raise the temperature but we can use underfloor heating to help evaporate water off the floor. Underfloor heating under the tiles can help prevent slips or falls but getting rid of excess water.
Adjusting the height of your toilet is another option, although not always necessary. This can be done by replacing your toilet, or simply using a thicker toilet seat.
There are plenty of other upgrades you can make to your bathroom that will help improve its ageing liveability. These include changing the lighting, hand rails and introducing technology. For more information on how Nerang Tiles can help improve the ageing liveability of your bathroom visit the multi award winning Nerang Tiles showroom on the Gold Coast.
What are Ceramic Tiles?
Ceramic tiles are one of the most popular materials used in the home but what exactly are they? Here’s everything that you might have wanted to know.
Definition of a Ceramic Tile
The simplest definition of a ceramic tile is simply any tile that is made from a ceramic material such as earthenware or porcelain. Indeed, they are made from a mix of clays, sand and other natural products. The tiles are produced when the products are combined and moulded into shape and then fired at a high temperature (up to 1250 degrees Celsius) in a kiln.
Ceramic tiles can be either glazed or unglazed. Unglazed tiles are more porous than a glazed tile. Be aware that patterned ceramic tiles are often created by putting the pattern in the glazing. This means that if the tile chips, you will see the base material, and the pattern will be interrupted.
The Difference between Ceramic and Porcelain Tiles
While a porcelain tile is technically a type of ceramic tile, there is a difference between porcelain and ceramic. Porcelain tiles are made from a more refined material and fired at a higher temperature to other ceramic tiles and thus they are harder and more durable. The pattern in a porcelain tile will also go the whole way through the tile, unlike a patterned ceramic tile where the pattern is found in the glaze. Porcelain tiles are also more water resistant than other types of ceramic tiles.
Where Can Ceramic Tiles Be Used?
Ceramic tiles are incredibly versatile and they can be used just about anywhere in the home, indoors or outdoors. They are very popular as both wall and flooring tiles and you can even use them for benchtops or splashbacks if you wish. For safety, you can have the tiles finished with a non slip product or you can choose a tile that is textured rather than completely smooth.
Ceramic tiles can be used in literally any style of home as they are available in a practically endless range of colours, patterns, and sizes. You have the choice of large format ceramic tiles for your floor, right through to tiny mosaic tiles that you can use on either walls or floors. Create an ultra modern theme or go country or Edwardian. It really is up to you!
If you are interested in tiling your home with affordable and high quality ceramic tiles then visit the Nerang Tiles award winning showroom on the Gold Coast. Nerang Tiles has a large range of discounted and cheap ceramic tiles perfect for home renovations and high quality porcelain tiles to achieve your design aspirations.

What exactly is a ceramic tile
Ceramic tiles quickly became the most popular type of flooring material used in the home and in commercial premises since they were introduced in ancient roman and Chinese times. Ceramic tiles, whether it is a ceramic floor tile or ceramic wall tile are made of a combination of sand, natural products and clays that are moulded into shape and fired / baked in a kiln. Ceramic tiles can be glazed or unglazed but most home owners prefer and have glazed ceramic tiles in their home.
Ceramic tiles are extremely popular and are available in hundreds of different formats, finishes and designs. If you are considering changing or building a new floor for your home, it is important you understand and know the advantages associated with ceramic tiles.
Benefits of Ceramic Tile
When you are deciding on what type of flooring to use in your home, both inside and out, it is important to think about how durable that floor is. Do you have children, pets or expecting high traffic in your home? Ceramic tiles have a much longer life in comparison to other flooring materials like carpet or timber. Another great benefit of ceramic tiles is that they are resistant to moisture. If you are looking for flooring in wet areas or are prone to spilling drinks then ceramic tiles are the perfect flooring material for your home.
If you have visited a large shopping centre or commercial areas you will uncountabley find ceramic tiles laid on the floor and walls. This is because ceramic tiles have a variety of resistances to heat, cold, frost, moisture, scratches and stains. Ceramic tiles are extremely resistance to tread wear in comparison to all other flooring materials and require little to no maintenance. Ceramic tiles are also available in non slip surfaces and can be made non slip by applying an abrasive glaze to the tile. The opportunities and benefits are endless.
3. Color Permanence
Sometimes different flooring materials are placed outside, around a pool or on a patio/deck. When exposed to sunlight some flooring materials will fade and lose their colour permanence, not ceramic tiles. Ceramic tiles can be exposed to a range of chemicals and constant sunlight but still retain their colour and never fade. Having colour permanence in your flooring gives you the confidence that your home will remain in pristine condition for its lifetime.
Maintaining a healthy and clean home is extremely important and ceramic tiles can help you achieve this. If you have high sanitary standards then you should consider that ceramic tiles in comparison to timber or carpet flooring is extremely hygienic. Ceramic tiles can be cleaned by an array of lean products without being damaged and do not retain or collect grime like other flooring products.

The Sandstone series of glazed porcelain tiles has been developed mainly with a ‘flat and non-slip’ surface factor in mind, this for areas where a combination of non-slip and smooth surface is of preference. With a Natural Sandstone surface appearance, its textured matt surface has optimum non-slip and wear rating. Due to the special manufacturing process, these non-slip tiles have a rougher surface than other general glazed tiles, thus requiring additional attention when cleaning. Light colours, such as the White and Silver are more sensitive to this, especially in medium to heavy traffic commercial areas or where soiling is o f main concern. For strict surface rating requirement, please enquire within as results may vary between colours and batches. These glazed tiles are best suited for medium traffic areas. With such high product performance, these tiles are particularly suitable for external application where aesthetic appeal is a must.

Prepare your tile surface
Before tiling any surface you have to prepare it for tiling. Start by making sure your surface is dry, clean and smooth. If you are tiling a wet area such as a bathroom or kitchen then you should also waterproof the area straight and flush.
Choose the right adhesive
Choose the right adhesive (glue) for the space you are tiling. There are many different brands and types of adhesives on the market and they are all designed for specific tiles and tiling surfaces. Cheap or discounted glues may decay and cause tiles to crack over time, so it is worth doing your research and investing in a high quality adhesive so you do not incur further costs in the future.
Choose the right tile size
It does not matter what they tell you, size does matter. Tiling with big tiles is difficult even for the most skilled tilers in the tile industry. Large format tiles are heavy and expensive to replace if mistakes are made or damaged, so DIY renovations should stick to tiles no bigger than 300 x 300 if on a budget. Unless of course you can pick up beautiful 600 x 600 or other formats for a great price.
Make sure you draw a plan of your area not just for size but to visualise what the end result will be and where the tiles will go. Taking the time to draw lines and mark measurements on walls will make things easier in the long run.
Use the right tools
Spare a bit of money and purchase the right equipment to use what the professional tilers use. This will ensure that your job looks professionally done. If you are tiling pressed or round edged tiles then you can lay them using the basic trowel only. However if you are tiling rectified tiles then you should invest in the various types of leveling systems to make sure you do not get any uneven joints or lippage which can be a trip hazard and be aesthetically unappealing.
You should wait at least 24 hours after laying your tiles before grouting them. In the meantime, try covering your tiles with a clear plastic sheet or with the boxes that they came in to protect them from any grime and the weather. Remember not to grout in between the joints between the wall and the floor or where two walls meet. Silicone is commonly used for this area. Apply the silicone after the grout job has dried.

1 How much wastage should be added when ordering tiles?
If your floor or wall area is fairly regular in terms of overall dimensions, then 10 per cent of extra tiles should be adequate. However, if your floor tile or wall tile is an unusual shape, or the area to be tiled is complex, or tiling a complex design such as herringbone, then 15 per cent is probably a better risk management figure. Having a few spare tiles is a great idea, because if you do fall short then you can access the same shade (batch number) easily.
2 How wide should grout joint widths be?
Many manufacturers of floor tiles and wall tiles that supply Nerang Tiles recommend narrow tile joints to imitate the appearance of natural marble and stone or timber flooring which is often laid with a 1 mm to 2 mm grout joint. However this depends on the flatness of the floor foundation / substrate. If, for example, you bathroom floor is perfectly flat then smooth narrow grout joints can be applied. Nerang Tiles recommends a 3 mm grout joint for ceramic floor tiles as an average.
It also depends on the type of tile you are laying. If you are laying a rectified tile that has been perfectly cut to the dimensions of the tile, then smaller joints can be used because aligning the grout joints is much easier. However, the use of pressed edged tiles where the size of the tile can vary between cartons, Nerang Tiles recommends using a large grout joint.
You should speak to your tiler about your floor or wall area and get his advice on what the best approach would be.
3 Which substrates can be tiled over?
Make sure you can tile your area. Practically any floor type can be tiled from concrete flooring, timber, plasterboard and even tiles. Adhesive manufactures such as CTA and Davco create adhesives that basically glue tiles to any surface. When purchasing your tiles you should ask the Nerang Tiles staff for their advice on what type of adhesive should be used and whether you need a rigid cement based, flexible rubber based on water resistance adhesive for your tiling area.
4 What is a Porcelain Tile, should you buy one?
You can find many different references and descriptions to porcelain tiles on the net and between different tile shops. They are commonly known as gres porcelanato, fully vitrified, or vitreous tiles. In short, porcelain tiles are an impervious material with a water absorption level at or below 0.5 per cent. This means that the tile will soak up less than 0.5 per cent of its weight in water when exposed to water for over 24 hours.
The surface of a porcelain tile can be glazed, polished or un polished. When a factory polishes the surface of a porcelain tile it increases the number of tiny pin holes (pores) in the surface of the porcelain tile which may harbour liquid or build up grime. This often happens because the factory did not clean or change over their polishing heads frequently enough during the tiles polishing process. In short, a polished porcelain tile may be easier to wipe clean because it has the feeling of glass, but a polished porcelain tile has a higher porosity value of 2 to 3 per cent as opposed to the more common 0.5 per cent prescribed in the ISO classification B1a (a global porcelain tile manufacturing standard).
Don’t be alarmed though, porcelain tiles are the leading tile material and the finest ceramic products on the market. Glazed porcelain is not a polished product and the most popular type of flooring in the world. The surface is easy to clean and maintain and it is one of the most durable and hardwearing flooring products in history. Fortunately, the problems associated with polishing porcelain tiles is being improved with the introduction of new technologies.
5 What are rectified tiles?
Many porcelain products are produced with rectified edges as opposed to pressed or round edges. Typically these tiles have very square edges as a result of cutting or grinding processes which produce tiles with very precise dimensions and permit installation using narrow grout joints.
6 Which type of ceramic tile is generally used outside?
Until very recently, the tile industry only placed terracotta, quarry tiles or tessellated tiles in outdoor areas such as pool surrounds, balconies and commercial exteriors for their durability and non-slip surfaces. However with new technology has come the emergence of hard wearing and frost proof porcelain tiles with the combination of factories being able to produce tiles using ink jet technology (producing the same colour or design tile consistently).
Today’s porcelain tiles that are in a matt or external version can be used outside where slip resistance is required.
7 Which body represents the broad interests of the Australian Tile Industry?
The Australian Tile Council which is active in all states and territories. Visit www.australiantilecouncil.com.au.
Choosing the best and the right tile backsplash for your kitchen is imperative in bringing all the design elements of your kitchen together. The kitchen backsplash can assist in connecting the colour and design of your benchtops with your cabinets. It is also important to understand that while a kitchen splashback can be a stylish feature of the kitchen, it must also be practical and functional for its design purpose. Nerang Tiles recommends considering both the style and function when selecting the material and design of your kitchen splash-back (i.e. maintenance and cleaning, look and texture, heat absorption etc.).
Glass Mosaic Tile
A properly chosen glass mosaic tile can add a design that is rich in colour with the flexibility of different design patterns. Glass mosaic sheets are great in number and also customisable. Most glass mosaic tiles offer a mix of different colour shades and patterns to provide a multi coloured design that draws the eye, especially to a kitchen splashback. See the EV Matrix Tile below as an example. With a mix of blue and white colours, this lineal glass mosaic tile draws your attention. Even the SC Montage Ripple glass mosaic accentuates the dark brown and contrasts beautifully with the white stone bench tops.
With the flexibility in colour and customisable choices with glass mosaic tiles it is easy to match your kitchen backsplash with the cabinets and countertops of your ktichen.
Another great feature of glass mosaic tiles is that they are easy to clean and maintain. This is an incredible important feature in the kitchen, particularly next to the stove top. The sleek, shiny and slippery look of glass tiles will add a shimmer/reflection to your kitchen while allowing grime and food scraps to be easily washed away.
Check out some of the glass mosaic feature tiles showcased on the Nerang Tiles website. To see the full range of options available and to get expert advice, visit the Nerang Tiles award winning showroom on the Gold Coast.
Natural Stone Tile
A natural stone kitchen splashback is a unique style and can add an eye-catching feature to your backsplash. Natural stone has great variation and different natural shades which is a unique feature commonly reserved with the organic stones, marbles and rocks that nature provides. Textures and varying colour are interesting and unique and you are sure to receive a stunning look with this design.
Cleaning and maintaining natural stone however is not ideal. It requires constant maintenance, sealing, polishing and cleaning to ensure that the organic elements do not fade, rust, stain or wear away. Do not fray, for there are alternatives to natural stone, such as stone veneer and porcelain tile imitations which look and feel like natural stone products for the fraction of the cost and without the cleaning and maintenance involved.
Nerang Tiles has a large range of natural stone and marble imitations in stone veneer and porcelain tiles available in its award winning showroom on the Gold Coast. Check out some of the alternatives for natural marble here or natural stone here. You will be amazed at the opportunities that stone veneer and ceramic or porcelain tiles can offer.
Well ceramic tiles are the best. Nerang Tiles may be a little biased here, but that is why we chose to be in the business of ceramic tiles, they are the best product. Ceramic tiles provide the opportunities to create any design and texture you like for your kitchen backsplash. Ceramic tiles come in a massive range of colours, patterns and textures while allowing designers to choose from real life imitations of natural stone, wood, glass and marble.
Take the below kitchen splashbacks as an example, both are completed using a porcelain and ceramic tile, one with a timber imitation and one with a patterned feature tile, both look stunning and demonstrate the flexibility and range of ceramic tiles in the market.
Easy to clean and extremely durable, ceramic tiles are the perfect material that can accentuate a kitchen and bring together the kitchen’s entire design.

How to Cut Kitchen Tiles
Whether you’re tiling your kitchen splashback or the kitchen floor, it is more than likely that you will need to cut a few tiles. Cutting to size or too fit a power point, your cuts will vary each time. Measuring and cutting tiles for your kitchen is not difficult as long as you have the proper equipment and some basic training / practice. If you are cutting your own tiles through a DIY project then Nerang Tiles recommends that you organise an additional few tiles to allow for any off cuts/wastages.
How to make a straight cut on a porcelain tile
What you will need
And of course the tile itself
Using a pencil, draw a line where the tile needs to be cut. Make sure that when you measure where the cut will go you account for the grout joints. This means you should cut the tile slightly smaller (2-3mm) to allow for even grout joints with the other non cut tiles.
Place the tile in the tiler cutter so that your line on the tile aligns with the tile cutters lever system.
Push down the tile cutter lever. This should deliver a clean and evenly cut tile.

Using a pencil, draw a line where the tile needs to be cut. Make sure that when you measure where the cut will go, you account for the grout joints. This means you should cut the tile slightly smaller (2-3mm) to allow for even grout joints with the other non-cut tiles.
Use the tile cutter to score/scratch the lines that you have drawn that are to be cut. This will scratch the surface line of the tile and create a break point for the tile.
Cut to the scored lines using an electric grinder.
