An Introduction to Ceramic Tiles

When it comes to choosing the tiles for your home, it may be difficult due to the wide range of options you are faced with. What material would work best for which room? What is the best colour flooring to match the couch? How do I know which tiles are the most durable and low-maintenance for my busy family home?

Today, we’re helping you out by providing our tile expertise to introduce our incredible range of ceramic tiles here at Roccia. We will explore some of the outstanding benefits they bring to any space they’re installed into to help you understand why they’re the perfect choice for your home’s floors and walls. Additionally, if you need some style inspiration for your kitchen, bathroom, or any other room you plan on installing ceramic tiles, we’re here to inspire you.

Advantages of Ceramic Tiles

When deciding on the best material for your tiles, you should consider the advantages they could offer your space. Our extensive catalogue of ceramic floor tiles and ceramic wall tiles provides an endless list of benefits; let’s take a look.


Ceramic tiles are known for being one of the most water-resistant tile materials available on the market. A protective layer sits on the top of the tile, providing a surface that is entirely resistant to water; perfect for busy households as it protects against stains. Additionally, this property makes ceramic tiles the best choice for rooms with a lot of moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Easily mop up spills and liquid-based mess without worrying about discolouring your flooring as you would with carpet, for example.

Durable and Low-Maintenance

One of the primary reasons people choose ceramic tiles for their homes is that they are durable and low-maintenance. As well as being water-resistant, tiles are the best choice for areas with a lot of traffic as they are easy to clean and keep on top of. You can use just about any floor cleaner on this material, and you will notice that they look as good as new with a quick sweep or mop. In addition, they do not require any special maintenance, so keeping them looking fresh and clean won’t break the bank.

Looks Great in Any Space

Ceramic tiles are a popular choice among many as they look great in any space they’re installed. This makes them a great option for everyone as it means you can switch up your home’s aesthetic and style as much as you need to, and your tiles won’t look out of place. Make sure to choose a neutral colour such as white, grey, or cream if you plan on changing your décor so you can switch from rustic farmhouse to sleek contemporary living with ease.

The Versatility of Ceramic Tile Designs

Following this, ceramic tiles are often chosen for their versatility and adaptability when it comes to design. Here at Roccia, we’re proud to offer an extensive collection of ceramics in a wide range of styles, colours, and patterns, suitable for anyone wishing to remodel their space and give their home a brand new look.

For example, our Versace ceramics are the perfect choice for those looking to implement a touch of luxury into their lives. We offer an outstanding selection of the fashion house’s best pieces, guaranteed to elevate your home and make a lasting impression on your guests.

In addition, we have plenty of other options if the opulent and grand aesthetic isn’t for you. For instance, our FS tiles provide a Victorian feel to the floors or walls they’re installed onto and would look incredible in a period townhouse.

Ceramic Tiles in the Kitchen and Bathroom

Choose matt ceramic tiles if you intend to use this material in your kitchen or bathroom. Whilst all ceramics are water-resistant, matt ceramics are ideal for rooms with more moisture as they are less slippery than gloss tiles. If you have children or elderly people living in your home, matt ceramic tiles are the best choice as they provide an additional level of safety and can prevent slips and falls.

In addition, matt ceramic tiles give the space a contemporary look, so if you’re looking to modernise your home, this is a great way to do just that.

Ceramic Tiles for a Feature Wall

Tiles are becoming a popular choice for feature walls, as they are more durable, long-lasting, and low-maintenance compared to wallpaper and paint, which can be peeled or ruined easily. Choose ceramic feature wall tiles to give your space the WOW factor, and select from our vast collection of designs. You’re sure to find the style you’re looking for that will provide a bold statement and allow you to show off your personality through your interior design.

Not only do they look incredible, but ceramics are the perfect choice for feature walls due to their many advantages, including their water-resistance, making them ideal for stylish bathrooms and kitchens.

Ceramic Tiling for Floors vs Walls

Another reason to install ceramic tiles in your home is that once you’ve found the perfect style, you can implement the tile throughout on both floors and walls. This material works well on any surface, so you can choose the contemporary look of the same tile on both floors and walls or mix the design up but stick with ceramics.

Easy cleaning is one of the top advantages of this material, so choosing to have it on all surfaces will guarantee that your household chores are cut down, and you can spend more time enjoying your lovely new renovated home.
