Can I use wall tiles on the floor?

Contemporary decorating trends have involved showcasing floor tiles on walls and glass mosaics as a floor feature. We recommend choosing with caution and getting the right advice from our experienced colour consultants. Depending on the size and weight of the floor tile, it can be applied in other areas. Some wall tiles will be unsuitable for floor because of their low load-bearing capabilities and therefore have higher risk of breaking or scratching.

For example, it is not recommended to use glass tiles as floor tiles. They could, however, be used in low traffic areas or as a feature. You should also consult your builder or tiler if you’re going to use floor tiles on your walls to ensure they are not too heavy to be safely applied.

Talk to your ColorTile consultant about the suitable placement of each tile.
