For the purchase of home improvement tiles, if you do not know enough about tiles, you may buy some poor quality tiles. When we buy tiles, we should pay attention to the appearance, surface smoothness and quality of the tiles, which will affect the durability of the tiles. Look at the reflectivity of the tile: Observe the color and flatness of the tile surface. In general, the clearer the color of the tile, the more reflective it is.

In addition, check whether the tile has pinholes, easy to accumulate ash. You can also see the quality from the traces, check the surface quality of the tile, and use hard objects to scrape the enamel of the tile to judge the surface of the tile. Look at the tile size: Measure at the place where you bought the tile. Use a ruler or tape measure to measure the four sides and diagonals of the tile and check the dimensions.

Ceramic tile glaze: See whether there are pinholes and spots on the glaze, see the texture and color difference of the glaze. Mainly to see whether there are black spots, bubbles, pinholes, cracks, scratches, stains on the surface of the tile, but also pay attention to whether there are defects such as leakage, leakage and grinding.

A common way to check the water absorption of a tile is to splash water on the back of the tile. Tiles that penetrate slowly or even without water are of better quality, and vice versa.
