Installation of ceramic tiles or porcelain tiles are relatively less expensive than using natural stones or other materials.  But there are high-end ceramic or porcelain tiles to produce floors or walls more elegant than using natural stones.  The general rule of thumb in home improvement or construction is – “the better the look, the higher the cost.”

However, there are ways to infuse elegance in tile installations without incurring high costs.  Here are some tips to assist in lowering the cost of ceramic or porcelain tile installations without compromising the look and design of the area.

Tips to Lower Cost of Tile Installation

1.  Always choose the economical size of tiles for the tile field.  These are typically 6″ x 6″ or 4″ x 4″ sizes.

2. Avoid smaller sizes or irregular sizes which can be more expensive.

3.  Mix more expensive tiles such as sculpted or hand-painted tiles as highlights together with cheaper or more plain tiles.  Natural stone can also be mixed with a ceramic field.  Place these highlights on areas easily visible so their value is not undermined.

4.  If only plain colored ceramic tiles can fit the budget, create a design by mixing 2 or more colors.
