Off white subway tile – The number of owners who put on the tiles of the subway has increased due to the clean lines, the durability and different colors that spice up a kitchen or bathroom. The standard tile of 3 x 6 inches was used once in the subway and the bathrooms due to the lines of the grout cleaning and eases of cleaning. The term tile refers to a piece of ceramic of little thickness, which may be rectangular or square, in which one face is glazed as a result of the clay-minerals burning process.
This piece may or may not be enameled, a process that renders it impermeable, yet can be frosted, semi-frosted or shiny. The off white subway tile is generally used as an internal, external and decorative coating, for example, for swimming pools or for facades. It is very important to observe the tonality of the tiles, they can suffer variations between the lots so we recommend at the time of purchase to know exactly the footage that will need in the environment.
When placing your off white subway tile, use a spacer for the seating joint. These joints should be left between the floor boards and are intended to minimize imperfections in the application and help accommodate the base and ceramic plate movements. The coatings can also be applied one over the other, thus avoiding that you need to break the old tile. For application of wall to wall it is necessary that the product is seated with a mortar of floor on floor. But do not forget that using floor to floor involves a number of variables that must be observed before performing the renovation.
