The function determines the purpose, and the function of the tile is different for different space requirements, so when selecting the tile, it is necessary to match the tile according to the space used. The living room has high requirements for wear resistance and dirt resistance. Polished bricks, antique bricks and wood grain bricks are all good choices. On the one hand, it has a long service life, on the other hand, it is convenient for daily cleaning and maintenance work. More glazed tiles or antique bricks are used in kitchen and bathroom, which are more resistant to dirt and slip. The balcony can be made of wood grain, which is not easy to fade and has a long service life.
After talking about the types and their functional characteristics, but there are so many brands in the market, how to choose? Let’s review the products and features of several major brands.
