Tile Choice is a tiling specialist company that works well to distribute a large range of tiles for all sorts of uses to their customers. The tiles they offer range from tiles for the bathroom and kitchen, floor tiles and other wall tiles. In addition to the different types of tiling solutions they offer, Tile Choice also sell underfloor heating systems, which, along with floor tiles can combine to create a superior heating system for the house.

Ceramic Floor Tiles

Underfloor heating is a relatively new technology used for heating homes, which has originated from the ancient method of heating homes for the Aristocracy in the Pre-Roman and Greek times. The original form of underfloor heating relied upon the heating of large ceramic tiles in fires, which were then pushed beneath the houses that needed heating. The ceramic tiles had a very high specific heat capacity, which meant that they could store thermal energy very well. The result of this was that the ceramic tiles could reradiate the heat from the fire into the house, which provide a form of heating system for the house.

Due to the high specific heat capacity of ceramic and other materials similar to stone, floor tiles can be made from this material. Ceramic Floor Tiles can be used in conjunction with modern underfloor heating systems to provide an efficient way of heating the rooms of your house from the ground up. Modern underfloor heating systems work by laying a series of hot pipes beneath the floor boards of the room, and you can then fit floor tiles above the floor boards. Ceramic floor tiles are a lot more efficient that carpets when using underfloor heating because the carpets trap hot air, so that room heats up much more slowly, whereas the ceramic floor tiles instantly reradiate the thermal energy they receive, warming the room up much quicker.

Ceramic Tiles are available from Tile Choice in many different sizes and styles. Most of the tiles are designed to look like stone slabs, although some feature intricate designs on them, such as the ‘Morocco Floor’ tiles. The sizes of the tiles range from around 25x25cm to about 60x60cm and larger. There are two main types of finishes you can have on the tiles. Firstly there are ‘matt’ tiles, which reflect very little light, and on the contrary, there are ‘gloss’ finish tiles, which have a coating to make them shine more in the light. Tile Choice is likely to have perfect tiles for your floor, no matter the design of your room.
