Choosing the Right Tiles

Selecting the right tiles for your space is vital to match your design vision and functionality. Start by considering the installation area, as different spaces require different tile types. For instance, kitchen backsplashes need moisture-resistant tiles, like the Urbano Graphite 3D Mix pictured above, while living room walls can be more decorative. Consider the room's size and lighting when choosing colors and patterns; lighter colors can open up small, dim spaces, while larger areas allow for bolder choices. Our Urbano collection offers versatile colors and patterns for designing focal points or intricate wall layouts.

When selecting Urbano tiles, it's important to factor in the existing decor to ensure a cohesive design—opt for solid colors to enhance a modern vibe or intricate patterns to add a touch of traditional elegance. Additionally, consider ease of cleaning and resistance to moisture, ensuring that the beauty of your Urbano tiled walls remains uncompromised even in the most utilized areas of your home.

Maintenance and Care

Urbano ceramic tiles, like our perfectly Pure White, are renowned for their low maintenance, making them a practical choice for residential and commercial settings. Regular cleaning is essential to keep them in top condition. A simple routine using a gentle cleaning solution and water is often enough to maintain their appearance, color, and finish.

Additionally, it's important to periodically check the condition of the grout between the tiles. Cracks or discoloration can lead to moisture damage, so addressing these issues quickly can extend the lifespan and beauty of your tile installation.
