A tiling plane of a smooth flat surface is basically the cover of an unbroken plane with one or more curved shapes, known as tiles, having no spaces and no overlaps. In engineering, tiling is usually generalized to various geometries and higher resolutions. In carpentry, tiling can be defined as the application of tiling materials to cover surfaces that are flat and smooth. In architectural design, the term refers to the application of materials to give the impression of solidity to an otherwise plain or smooth surface. In terms of home remodeling, the application of tiling on the walls gives the room an old fashioned and elegant look.
Tiling can either be flat or raised. The flat kind of tiling has parallel flat panels that are attached to each other by overlapping strips of material that are attached at the edges or the base. The raised variety consists of parallel strips of material that are attached along the vertical joints of the panel. The partitioning of tiling in partitions is done by breaking up the panels into parallel slits and then fitting the partitioning material over the partitions to make a frame.
Tiling techniques include tiling through glazing. In this method the floor is tiled with a special type of material that helps the glaze to stay intact. This method is usually much thicker than the normal tiling. Most glazed tiles have baked-in decorations and patterns.
