Tiles Direct is your one-stop shop for tiling products. Explore all the adhesive, grout and other tiling accessories we have on offer to find exactly what you need.
When buying adhesive for your tiles, tile size and position will affect the type of adhesive that you choose.
That’s why we stock a variety of tiling adhesive products to make sure you get the best option for your tiling project.
Our tiling adhesives come in two colour options: white and grey. Both deliver the same performance, but white adhesive can be preferable if you’re installing lighter coloured tiles or translucent options like mosaics, as the adhesive will be less noticeable.
In terms of tiling adhesive options, you’ll find:
Different tiling adhesives have different properties, so your choice of adhesive will also depend on the area you’re tiling and other environmental factors. We stock the following options:
Many of the tiling adhesives we have in stock offer a combination of all of the above properties in one tiling product, so whatever specifications you need, you’re sure to find the right solution.
Finally, when buying adhesive it’s best to be prepared and make sure you order enough to complete the job. Running out of adhesive halfway through tiling can stunt the progress of your interior design project.
In terms of how much adhesive you need, covering approximately 4-5 square metres of wall tiles should take roughly 10 kg of wall adhesive. For floors, 20g of tiling adhesive should cover approximately 5m2 on an average floor, but the amount of adhesive you use will vary depending on how level the floor is.
Tile grout is the last line of defence in sealing your tiles and preventing dirt and moisture from getting behind them, not to mention providing a neater aesthetic. This means it’s important to choose the right tile grout to keep your tiles protected for longer.
Most surfaces will expand and contract over time due to the rigidity of tiles, so there needs to be space in between to allow for this movement. Tile grout is then applied between each of the tiles, filling the gap.
Most grout will be water resistant, but when applying tiles in areas with wetter conditions (such as the bathroom), opting for a waterproof tile grout or sealing means you ensure that the grout is stain and mould resistant.
In areas with a great amount of movement (such as wooden floors), flexible tile grout is recommended over a standard tile grout to allow for movement in the substrate. So, whatever area you’re tiling, it’s worth considering the characteristics of the material and the environment you’ll be laying tiles onto to ensure you get the best tile grout for the job.
At Tiles Direct, we offer a variety of tile grout colours, including glitter additives if you want to give your tiles some extra sparkle. Some of our most popular grout shades include:
This wide range of colours means you can either match your grout to your tiles or create contrasts by daring to go for completely different tones of grout and tiles. In terms of grout quantities, it’s also worth bearing in mind that the smaller your tiles, the more grout you’ll likely use.
To complete your tile grout, check out our selection of tile silicone glues that will seamlessly blend into the room’s aesthetic. Providing a highly adhesive seal for tiled areas such as the gaps between tile floors and walls and around bathroom furniture, our silicone glue tiling products are water resistant, with some options also boasting anti-mould properties.
