Kettering, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 15, 2010 -- One of the most commonly asked questions by customers is: "What is the standard size for wall tiles?" It is also one of the hardest to answer. The days when bathroom wall tiles were mostly 20x25cm and kitchen wall tiles were 15x15cm are gone, leading to a multitude of varying sizes & shapes.
When the amount of options in wall tiles are given to the customer it can be almost overwhelming, especially when sizes can differ between 2.5cm mosaics right up to 60x90 high gloss wall tiles. Online Tiles Direct understands the difficulties involved in making the right decision when buying tiles, especially from an online retailer.
"With the wide variety of sizes available now online retailers need to show the tiles in scale to the room. It's not enough to put one tile on the website and hope the customer can imagine it in their kitchen or bathroom. With this mind we have developed the Online Tiles Direct website with the customer's point of view as our starting point. What would they want to see? How could we show our products in the best way? We've spent a lot of time on the pictures of room scenes to give an insight to how a bathroom or kitchen can look" Rob Fletcher, Sales Director.
The amount of different sizes has increased more for bathroom wall tiles than anywhere else. It is not uncommon to see a large format 30x60 wall tile in the smallest of bathrooms. On the flipside of this the amount of different mosaic tile sizes, colours, and textures has increased significantly. They can be used for kitchens, bathrooms, and as a very cost effective border.
So with so much choice available the pressure is on for retailers like Online Tiles Direct to not only cater for all tastes but to adequately display their products and advise on the right options and choices available.
