Ayma Tiles in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, can take care of your tiling needs for the kitchens as we offer two broad categories of tiles for you to choose from –
Types of Tiles based on Usage
- Floor Tiles
Floor Tiles refer to the tiles installed on the floors in our residential and commercial spaces. Tiles are the most common type of flooring used in India, and that’s why there are multiple options, colors, textures, and styles available. Floor tiles are also available in different sizes per the customer’s needs. The floor tiles are heavier and thicker than Wall Tiles and are made to carry a higher weight load.
Floor Tiles are commonly used because of their basic properties of being easy to clean, they’re scratch-proof, water-proof, dirt-resistant, and have an anti-skid surface. Therefore making them an ideal choice for flooring, especially in the kitchens! A space that is more prone to glass breakages and spills.
- Wall Tiles
As the name suggests, Wall Tiles are installed on the interior walls in residential and commercial spaces. These tiles are also lighter than the floor tiles as they don’t have to carry a heavyweight load. That’s why Wall Tiles are often used to cover up walls in the Kitchen, as they give a delicate and elegant look to the walls.
They are also scratch-proof, stain-free, water-resistant, and easy to maintain. They make the perfect addition to the kitchen! You can cook all your savory, tadka-filled recipes without having to worry about ruining the aesthetics of the kitchen!
Wall Tiles also include Base Tiles, which are placed at the bottom of the walls to incorporate a smoother floor-to-wall finish. The small joint patch of tiles is set to create a water-tight and moisture-free structure. The base tiles installed are usually the same as the floor tiles.
Types of Tiles Based on Manufacturing Process
The Wall and Floor Tiles can be categorized into four parts, depending on their manufacturing process and strength. Each type of tile is unique and provides particular benefits! Ayma Tiles keeps the following kinds of tiles –
- Ceramic Tiles
Ceramic Tiles are commonly manufactured and widely used for tiling floors and walls. They are famous for their durability, robustness, and inability to breakage. Ceramic tiles are easy to clean, as opposed to corrosion, and are water-proof. They are also easy to install and give off the most elegant and gorgeous look and feel.

- Vitrified Tiles
Vitrified tile is a ceramic tile with very low permeability or porosity, and this means that there are low void or empty spaces between the rocks. In other words, vitrified tiles are denser than ceramic tiles.
The vitrified tiles have a glassy look and are tough, firm, and homogenous. These tiles are primarily utilized in settings with heavy footfall. Due to their robust nature, they are used in the interiors of the kitchens.

- Digital Wall Tiles
Digital Wall Tiles are made of Ceramic Raw material usually manufactured using digital prints and designs. Through Digital Media, multiple varieties of textures, images, colors, patterns, and designs that suit your taste are printed on the tiles.
Digital Wall Tiles are generally affordable and durable, and they are also water-resistant and have a low absorption capacity. As a result, tiles maintain their shape despite regular cleaning and damage for a more extended time. They are even fired and fade resistant and also resistant to cleaning chemicals. Therefore making them the perfect option for kitchens!

- Porcelain Tiles
Porcelain Tiles are made from the same raw materials as Ceramic Tiles; the only difference is the crafting process of a Porcelain Tile.
These tiles have low porosity, and therefore their structure is sturdier than Ceramic Tiles. The high density of these tiles also makes them resistant to water absorption, thereby elongating their life. These tiles can endure various climatic conditions such as heat, cold, water, bacteria, fungus, etc.
Due to their dense and heavier structure, Porcelain Tiles cost more than the regular ceramic tile. Despite that, they are preferred due to their durable and robust nature.
Ayma Tiles has an excellent collection of various kinds of Porcelain Tiles. They are available in varied colors, sizes, patterns, thicknesses, and textures.
