Buy ceramic tile is in decorating process "must choose". Even if the whole house is paved with floors, there are always some spaces that need to be paved with tiles, such as kitchens, toilets and other places that are frequently used and easy to hide filth, because tile laying will facilitate daily care.
Most people decorate. Generally, they will ask the decoration company to design the decoration scheme first. After the scheme is determined, they will buy materials. The decoration company will tell you what size, color and style of tiles you want to buy according to your home decoration style, paving area and other actual conditions. At this time, you have two choices: one is to get information online, and then go to the physical store to choose tiles; the other is the designer to take you to choose.
How to choose ceramic tile? What should we pay attention to? The following summarizes the five points, you see immediately start to buy good tiles.
Most people choose tiles at the beginning, the first thing they pay attention to is the brand. At present, there are thousands of ceramic tile brands on the market. Generally, the industry will divide ceramic tile brands into first, second, third and fourth line brands and top ten brands according to their popularity, product quality and household registration stele. Here are the first, second, third and fourth tier brands by brand awareness.
First line brand: well-known, we have heard more or less, the brand premium is high, the price is naturally more expensive; second line brand: well-known, the product positioning is medium and high-grade, the quality is good, the price is slightly higher; third line brand: well-known, compared with the first and second line brand, the establishment time is a little short, but the quality is good, the price is good; fourth line brand: completely unknown The price is cheap and the quality is not easy to say.
For most people, the second and third tier brands are the best choice, with reliable quality and high cost performance.
However, it should be noted that the above division is not absolute. The well-known first-line and second-line brands also have common affordable products, which can’t directly put the first-line brands into the "prison". The selection of ceramic tiles requires multi-faceted comparison and consideration.
According to different classification standards, ceramic tiles can be divided into many types, such as marble tiles, polished tiles, polished tiles, matt tiles, antique tiles, etc. Here is a brief introduction of several ceramic tile types that are often heard in the market.
Marble ceramic tile: a kind of ceramic tile with natural marble realistic texture and texture color; glazed tile: a layer of transparent glaze on the surface of the ceramic tile, hard and wear-resistant; antique tile: a kind of glazed ceramic tile, which can create a classical nostalgic atmosphere and anti slip and wear-resistant; matt tile: non bright tile, which can avoid light pollution but is relatively easy to be dirty; full body brick: a combination of material and color on the front and back Wear resistant.
Selected place of production
There are imported and domestic ceramic tiles. If you choose imported ceramic tile brands, you will basically screen out most of them. Ceramic tiles are mainly produced in Guangdong, Shandong, Fujian, Jiangxi, Sichuan, among which the most famous and recognized product quality is Guangdong brick. This is because Guangdong is one of the birthplaces of China's ceramic wall and floor tiles, with a huge annual production scale. Whether it is the production scale, technical level, product supporting, enterprise management, personnel training or brand management, Guangdong bricks are first-class in all major production areas, so they are highly recognized by people. If you want to save trouble, you can choose Guangdong brick directly.
However, this does not mean that the tiles produced in other places are not worth choosing. Each production area has its own representative brands, and the quality of these brands is not necessarily inferior to that of Guangdong bricks. As long as they are reliable brands, they can choose directly regardless of the origin.
Ceramic tile selection group / company
A lot of people may wonder, why choose a group / company after choosing a brand? This is because in the ceramic tile industry, many times the brand ≠ group / company, some brands may not be impressive, but its company is quite famous. In the ceramic tile industry, each ceramic tile group / company has its own brand with different high, middle and low-grade positioning. However, as long as the ceramic tiles of the same group / company are of different brands, they may be made by the same factory. That is to say, if you buy the ceramic tiles of the second and third line brands of the same group / company, the production process and product quality will not be much worse than those of the first line brands of the same group / company. So, when choosing ceramic tile, can notice this kind of brand.
Selection of quality parameters of ceramic tiles
The parameters of ceramic tile determine the quality of ceramic tile. The main parameters are size, water absorption, flatness, wear resistance, antifouling, bending strength, skid resistance and so on. Understanding these professional knowledge in the field of product quality inspection is very helpful for us to select ceramic tiles. Because in the home decoration, the parameters of ceramic tiles used in different spaces may be different. Such as the bathroom needs strong anti-skid, low water absorption tiles, the living room needs good wear-resistant tiles, and the kitchen needs strong anti fouling tiles. Under normal circumstances, as long as you choose a reliable brand of ceramic tiles, the basic parameters of these tiles are generally not too bad.
