CHOOSING THE PERFECT FINISH
It takes time and money to find the perfect floor and wall tiles for the area you are tiling so you are going to want to keep the tiles in perfect condition and use the best final touches to ensure an enduring look.
Nerang Tiles has created a short guide with tips to help you create the perfect tile finish.
Choosing the right look
To make sure you choose the perfect look you first need to select your tiles. Choosing tiles can be overwhelming in a store like Nerang Tiles because there are over 5,500 tiles on display. Knowing whether you would like to go for a sleep, rustic, modern or classic look will help narrowing down tiles for your taste and design aspirations. Make sure you use the tile specialists at Nerang Tiles, explain to them what colour and look you are after so they can narrow down tiles for your selection.
The Nerang Tiles website has a great deal of inspiration galleries for tiled kitchens, bathrooms and living room areas as well as photographs of floor tiles and wall tiles in application throughout the tile products pages.
After you have selected your floor tiles or wall tiles and laid them down your tiled area is starting to look the part. All it needs now is the right grout to finish of the desired look. The experts at Nerang Tiles can recommend and advise you on the different colour grout options available for different tiles, whether they are outdoor tiles or indoor tiles.
Once the tiles are laid and you have waited the appropriate time for the tile glue to dry, we need to grout the tiles. Now the type of grout you choose will depend on a few things: the type of tile you have used, the area you are tiling and the size of the tile joint between each tile. There are also different types of colours for the grout, however if your tile has a great deal of colour in it then you may want to lean towards a neutral colour grout.
If you are tiling a bathroom then you will also need to ensure that your grout and tiled area are all waterproofed to minimise any future issues with the tile glue, tile grout or tiles themselves.

New Zealand Hand Made Glazed Subway Tiles
These days, when almost everything around us has been made by machine; the warmth and infinite variety of the human touch is especially welcome. Middle Earth Hand Glazed Tiles are an old concept with a new look giving a new dimension to tile finishes. The tiles are individually glazed by hand and fired in specially designed kilns to create their unique and vivid colours. Hand glazing gives a new life and texture to this traditional tile style.
From our hand-crafting of the tiles to our classic glazing techniques, everything we do is designed to make sure that each hand glazed tile bears traces of our touch.
Choose your favorite colour, select the shape that suits your space and we will craft an order of glazed tiles especially for you.
From clay to kiln, Middle Earth Tiles are made with passion and care. The glazes are hand brushed onto each tile, in three or more coats and then fired in batches in kilns.
These days, when almost everything around us has been made by machine, the warmth and variety of the human touch is especially welcome. There is a richness of colour and texture to the glazed tiles that machine-made tiles just cannot match.

Dirty grout joints, specially when they are in excess of 5mm in size, can lower the tone and beauty of your walll or floor tiles.
To ensure your grout joints do not distract from the beauty of your tiles use the Nerang Tiles handy guide.
Before cleaning your grout and maintaining them, make sure you have the right tools. We recommend not wasting any time trying different ineffective clothes and water solutions that will end up doing a half done job and leaving your wallet lighter. You should use what the professionals use, grab some specially designed cleaning pads designed specifically for grout joint cleaning. Ask in store for information. Cleaning pads can vary in coarseness which means that you can customise the type of cleaning required for the size and sensitivity of your grout joints.
Using proper detergent that is specifically designed for cleaning grout will make your job much easier and leave a better finish. These also vary in strength and you should ask the experts at Nerang Tiles on their recommendation on which cleaning products will work best for your specific job requirements.
Before jumping in guns blazing with confidence you should run a test first. Pick an area of tiles that is not overly visible and do a patch test by following the manufacturer's instructions on the products you are using.
To clean tiled floors, start by sweeping and vacuuming the area to remove any dust and fluff to avoid scratching the tiles when pressing down with the cleaning pads. Then clean the floor with a mild detergent and water. Make sure you change the water regularly to avoid spreading dirt and grime around instead of picking up off the tiles and grout joints.
Please make sure that you do not use chemicals or industrial strength products on any natural stone flooring like travertine, marble or slate. You should check the manufacturer;s guidance on the products to make sure that the products you have selected are suitable for the flooring and will not damage the tiles.
After years and years or water damage you will notice that your grout between the tiles may begin to wither away or the colour may start to fade.
The good news is that Nerang Tiles has a number of professionals and DIY products that can help you re-grout your tile joints to ensure the colour is dominant and to remove any unwanted holes. Grout joints are designed to act as expansion joints and sealers to prevent water and other substances from getting underneath the tiles and damaging the substrate. Any damage to the substrate cause irreparable damage to the tiles so it is imperative that you re-grout or seal any crumbling grout joints.
Check out the below handy tips to make re-grouting your tiled area easier for you.
