Floor tiles are tiles made for use on a floor. They can be made of ceramic, terra-cotta, linoleum, vinyl and other materials. Ceramic tiles are a type of tile made from harden…ed materials (like clay). People put ceramic tiles everywhere - around the bathroom, kitchen, pools, etc.
Yes, you can use floor tile on the wall. It can be heavy, but if you use a high quality latex fortified thin set (NOT mastic) you should have no issues. It also should be put …onto cement board for best results. In the past using floor tile on the wall was an issue because trimpieces were not easily available. With trends changing, you are seeing more with bullnose and you can always use ceramic trim like schulter.. Now, you CANNOT put wall tile on the floor. They are often made with white clay and other more bridle ingredient's. Check the box, it will tell you what it is rated for.
Generally no. Wall tile are often made of material with low PSI ratings. These ratings tell how much pressure per square inch a flooring can with stand. Being made to go on th…e wall, they only need to be of marginal strength. This isn't always true, but that said, 95% of the time, wall tile cannot be put on the floor. Not reccommended. It typically wont handle the traffic, and will end up cracking on you Not really as wall tiles are usually highly glazed and would be VERY slippy if they get wet, there also usually a different clay background and not designed to be stood on. Hope this helps
It is not usually done but picture a room with the walls and the flooring alike. It looks cool inside my mind.
Shower walls, because if you do the floor first, and then drop a wall tile on it, you could risk chipping the already laid tile. Work with gravity, top to bottom all the time … -------------- Must disagree with above answer. Floor first so that floor goes under walls. Then leave a small gap between walls and floors. Do not grout this gap. Caulk it when job is done. (read the Stanley Complete Book of Tile for more info)
It is best to remove the wall tiles. You need a flat service and a lot of times old tile will not be perfectly flat. If you remove the tiles you will have a good base to tile …on. If you don't want to remove the tiles you may be able to add a backer board on top of the old tile and then tile on that.
Yes ANS 2 - I would only do that as a repair or an emergency. Floor tiles generally need a heavier and denser glue as they are being walked on - wall tile has no such stre…sses. ( -I have done lots of both types )
wall tiles are used on walls. floor tiles are used on floors. if you want to interchange. you can make the wall tile as floor tile and vice-versa
You can. It is less gritty but it works. Edit - While this is true, it's important to understand the wall grout is designed for thinner grout lines, so if you use it on the …floor, make sure your grout lines are thin. Otherwise, the grout will crack.
Travertine is a natural stone that is often used for floor and wall tiles. Travertine is a type of limestone that is formed in spa areas and has a honeycombe structure. It can… be found in many parts of the world but the two main quarrying regions are Italy and Turkey.
yes you can, it may be a little over kill but it will work
You could but it's not advisable Wall tile adhesive is thicker so it won't run down the wall and the tiles are less likely to slip ANS 2 - I have done this a few times. …If you use tile spacers, no problem.
Probably yes, but it depends on the exact labeling on that mortar, and what kind of tile and wall surface you have. Check to see what kinds of tile (ceramic, porcelain, traver…tine, etc.) it sticks to, and what size of tile. Also see what kinds of substrates it's approved for. Substrate is the surface to which you want to attach the tile. If the bag says it sticks to cementious backerboard, and you have tile backerboard on the walls, then it's good to go.
It is certainly possible to tile a floor, but bear in mind, there is much more pressure placed on the floor than on the walls, and floor tile must be laid over a solid cement …base, otherwise it is going to crack.
If you will use it inside the house then it's ok, but if you will use it inside the bathroom it is not advisable because wall tiles are slippery when wet. Slippery floroing is… not good in the bathroom. It can cause accidents. Simpley put - NO. wall tiles are frequently thinner than flooring tiles and have a surface designed to allow water to stay on the surface. Floor tiles have a degree of grip to prevent slipping. GOOD Trades people will not put these down on floors
Tiles used on floors tend to be thicker than wall tiles. Also,floor tiles are subjected to flexing as people walk over them.Therefore, if floor tiling a wooden floor, use a fl…exible cementadhesive and grout designed to give and take without cracking.
