Waterproof Characteristics

Especially when designing wet and moisture-prone spaces such as a bathroom, wall tiles are quite ideal. The paint and wallpaper are subjected to peeling off due to excessive water droplets in the air - hence, also resulting in the growth of molds. On the other hand, the wall tiles are waterproof and can easily be cleaned with the help of a dry and damp cloth. Simply wipe out the moisture and your bathroom wall tiles are as good as new - every year down the line.
