Bathroom tiles- Which type do you need?

There are many different varieties of tiles available on the market. But not every type is suitable for your bathroom. This is because not all tiles are designed for places that are meant to get wet. There are a few factors that come into play when it comes to bathroom tiles. The most important factor is friction. This mainly applies to bathroom floor tiles. In simple terms, the friction could be thought of as how slippery or rough a tile is going to be. The more friction the tile causes, the safer it is to use. The other important characteristic is the ability of the tile to absorb water (viterosity). MTB Carpentry and Construction has put together a list of the best bathroom tile options with these factors in mind just for you.
