Wall and Floor Tiling Options

Choosing features for your new home can be really exciting. It allows you to feel a part of the building process and it lets you make important decisions about the look and feel of your home.

When it comes to wall and floor tiles, there are a number of factors to consider. Tiles can make up a majority of your home and are difficult to replace. Make sure you don’t experience tile regret by following our fast guide.

Tile Type

With so many types of tiles to choose from, it can be tricky to make the right choice for your new home. Each tile type comes with a different look and price tag, so it’s important to find a style that suits both your home and budget. Here are some modern tiles you might consider:

  • Ceramic: Ceramic tiles continue to be a popular choice of tiling. Because they are glazed, they often stand out with a rich colour and they’re great for wall trim and low traffic areas. They are reasonably hard wearing but can chip or crack so be wary when using them as floor tiles in high-traffic areas of the home.
  • Stone: Stone has a more natural look and is very much in style, particularly in bathrooms and kitchen splashbacks. Authentic stone products such as marble and granite are expensive and offer a luxurious look for your home.
  • Porcelain: Porcelain tiles are perfect for the floor. They’re hardier than ceramic tiles and even if they do chip, they can be ground down slightly to be repaired. Porcelain tiles come in a variety of colours and textures and are well suited for those who are looking to ensure they have good quality flooring at an affordable price.
  • Glass: Glass tile looks chic and beautiful – they’re ideal for kitchen splashbacks and as a starring feature in your bathroom. Glass is easy to clean and it makes your space shine just a little bit more.


Regardless of what tile type you choose, one thing you will need to consider is grout colour. Light coloured grout can really freshen up the look of a place but it can also become discoloured over time and may need cleaning by a professional on a regular basis. Dark grout generally goes well with tiles of darker tones and can offer a rich, earthy look.


Your tile colour will make a difference to your home’s overall look. Keeping it consistent throughout the dry and wet areas will allow for a seamless appearance that flows through the home. When choosing your tile colour, factor in the colour of the rest of your home and seek advice from a professional.

Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

We would just like to say a massive thank you once again for all your help with the house. We moved in on the weekend and we are loving it ! So thank you for being part of the team that made our dream come true.

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
