Tile Types and Specs
Tile Murals Plus uses only the finest tile products. While others may use a cheaper product to keep the price down, we strive for excellence in everything we produce. Below, you will see some of the items we use in our products.
GLOSS FINISH CERAMIC TILE
Provides a high gloss surface for photos and detailed art. However, because it will scratch, it’s not a good choice where frequent cleaning or contact is an issue. Best for decorative purposes on walls, etc. Use unsanded grout ONLY, or choose to use no grout at all in decorative applications, and clean with any soft cloth or sponge using a non-abrasive cleaner.
SATIN FINISH CERAMIC TILE
Resilient and more scratch resistant, satin or matte finish provides a “less crisp” surface for photos and art than gloss but still just as vivid. Unless you have a specific application, we don’t recommend the matte finish as it tends to look a bit dull. Great for kitchen backsplashes and showers. We recommend using unsanded grout and cleaning with any soft cloth or sponge using a non-abrasive cleaner.
Un-sealed, stone finish that gives your artwork or photo an old-world, softer look.Veining and “pockmarks” may show through the image and there may be a slight variation in tone and/or density across the tiles. Also, these tiles may have rough and/or chipped edges. All of these factors add to the charm of the “old world” look. We recommend using unsanded grout and cleaning with any soft cloth or sponge using a non-abrasive cleaner.
These durable, smooth finish, tiles are of tempered glass and, unlike other tiles, are printed on the back. This is ideal where heavy contact, or for use as a cutting surface, because the print is protected behind the glass. Great for inserts into countertops or tables. These tempered glass tiles cannot be cut. Use a grout specifically formulated for use with glass tile and clean with any soft cloth or sponge using a non-abrasive cleaner.
Made of durable tempered hardboard with a high gloss, image face. The same material that is used in our coasters.
