The tiling done on this job turned out especially nice. All tiles used on this project are grade A (tiles come in grade A, B and C). The main floor area has a tile with a pink hue and natural pattern (each tile has the identical pattern). Because the pattern is so hard to see, several tiles were inadvertently laid in the wrong way and needed to be chipped out and reset. All areas that needed to be sloped were correctly sloped during the laying of the tiles. This is especially important in the bathrooms, where the level of the floor must slope correctly to allow the water to exit via the floor drain. Also, in the patio this is important so that if water comes in contact with the floor it will flow away from the entry door.
There are many different patterns of tiles used as indicated below.
kitchen: natural stone design 30 centimeter square size for the floor, natural dark green granite 40 * 25 centimeter for the outside of the kitchen cabinets, 20 * 20 brownish hue for the kitchen walls and an eye level row of decorative small design tiles.
patio: natural stone design 30 centimeter square tiles (same as the kitchen floor).
bathrooms: natural stone design 20 centimeter square size for the floors, natural stone tan 20 * 25 centimeters for the bathroom walls, white 20 * 25 pattern for the sink cabinet, and an eye level row of decorative small design tiles.
