6. Select the finishFloor tiles are available in various finishes and each finish gives a different look to the home.Glazed tiles have a highly reflective finish so they should be used in a small space. The highly reflective surface bounces light, which makes a small space look bigger.Matte-finish tiles are recommended for high-traffic areas or the outdoors so that the tile surface is non-slippery. For better safety, it is advisable to go for non-skid tiles for the bathroom and outdoor balconies.
Another way to work with the carpenter is on only a labour contract, where the homeowner procures all the raw materials. Keep in mind that this way of working will require a lot of your personal time and energy, because the workers might require raw materials at odd times of the day, which you might not be able to provide. This can result in unnecessary delay of the project.
