Be sure to keep the desired area to be tiled in mind when purchasing art tiles. If the area in question is a floor, be sure that the tiles are rated for floor and will not crack from pressure, or be overly slippery when wet. Thicknesses of art tiles can vary greatly, so be sure to keep that in mind when preparing the substrate, or combining art tiles with other materials.
