Today’s hygiene regulations demand that surfaces must be smooth and easy to clean, and that walls are durable, impervious and impact resistant. When hygiene is important using ceramic tiles can be problematic and less durable in the long term
The problem with ceramic tilesCeramic tiles are a popular choice in kitchen and bathroom areas however are vulnerable to damage as they can be easily scratched, chipped or cracked such damage means that water can penetrate the tile which can lead to bacterial growth as well as unsightly stains. Another issue with tiling is that getting a perfect finish can be a challenge for contractors without experience. Kitchen and bathroom tile manufacturers and food regulations specify the use of water-resistant adhesives and epoxy grouts. It is difficult to be sure that these have been used until, of course, it is too late and the damage has been done.
