The shower splashes, bath foam overflows, the wet towel dries – a bathroom is a place that is stressed. The constant use of warm water creates a lot of water vapor and thus the risk of mold growth on walls that are wallpapered or provided with plaster. These wall coverings absorb moisture intensively and this can have unpleasant consequences: the mold that develops not only damages the structure of the building but in the worst case also health. Therefore, not only floor tiles but also wall tiles are increasingly used in wet areas, which are also often installed at room height. Tiles on the wall are much more than protection against damage – they can create a very special atmosphere in the bathroom. If there is natural stone or porcelain stoneware with a natural stone look on the floor and wall, the feeling of space is significantly enhanced and gets an exclusive touch.

What’s the difference between floor tiles and wall tiles?
What is the difference between these two products? Can you use floor tiles as wall tiles? The second question is easy to answer: yes. Basically nothing speaks against the use of floor tiles on the wall. Conversely, that would be more problematic: wall tiles are usually thinner and therefore lighter than floor tiles. The degree of hardness is not sufficient to withstand the daily stresses that a floor has to endure. The abrasion resistance is also not given, and the slip resistance of floor tiles is an important criterion, especially in wet areas. Wall tiles do not have to have these properties, which is why they are unsuitable for floors. But if you want to bring our beautiful natural stone floors to the wall, you can do so without hesitation. You just have to keep in mind that floor tiles are more difficult to glue due to their higher weight.
