Here we are going to tell you 3 important aspects that must be taken into account when choosing your ceramic floor.

1. Choose the size of the slab according to the dimensions of your space

It is recommended to use conventional sizes for small places and large format ceramics for larger spaces. However, there are several experts who recommend using large ceramic formats in small spaces to create a feeling of spaciousness by reducing the number of joints.
You can use different formats and colors of ceramic on the same surface or combine floors with walls, apply decorative details when changing the design to enhance the contrast.

2. Choose the color of the slab according to the dimensions and lighting

If the space is small, you can choose very light colors to achieve a feeling of spaciousness. The downside to light floors is that they need to be cleaned more frequently, however, you can choose marbled or patterned floors.
If your space has little lighting, light tones are recommended in order not to shrink the space further. Only with good lighting and spaciousness is it recommended to use dark colors.

3. Choose the type of slab according to each room

Rooms: Imitation wood can be used to give warmth to the room. Kitchen: It is recommended to use a smooth, enameled floor to facilitate cleaning, because when preparing food it can be splashed, so a enameled floor allows it to be cleaned more quickly and easily.
Bathrooms: In the shower area, a non-slip porcelain tile is recommended while in the rest of the bathroom you can use a floor that is as similar to the colors of the walls as possible.
Living room: It is recommended to use a ceramic or glazed porcelain floor, in a light color. Additionally, a floor that imitates marble or a dark color can be used if there is good lighting.
Garage: In this space you can use darker colors than in the rest of the spaces.

4. Make sure the surface is well level

It is important for the installation of ceramic floors that the surface is uniform; if it is not, you must identify its level of variation to avoid raised ends in the mosaic, tile or floor. Carrying out the installation with an unevenness may cause breaks in the ceramic over time.
Little variation. Level the surface with the same adhesive that you use to install the ceramic floor.
Considerable variation. Fill the uneven area with mortar or chip the surface if it is over level.
