Damp walls have now become a nightmare which hound us every monsoon. Are you terrified by the monsoons? The easiest ways to maintain dryness and prevent leakages is by tiling up your wall. Tiles are simple to maintain at a negligent cost and add an attractive effect to the room. One of the greatest properties of tiles is that they are non-porous which means that their surfaces are completely sealed. A wall however has minute openings which enable water to leak in.Having non-porous surfaces also means that it does not absorb oil and other likely stain-causing elements. The non-porous nature of wall tiles means they do not swell or otherwise become disturbed during or after exposure to moisture, such as from the steam of a shower or the splashing of water in a kitchen sink.
Wall tiles are available in different shapes and sizes and also in abundant designs. Tiles allow you to get extremely artistic with innovative arrangements and patterns. For example, you can use several tiles of one specific colour to create a wall border, or alternate between tiles of different sizes to create some visual contrast. You can also use wall tiles to produce a mosaic.
