The Art of Choosing The Right Tile For Your Home
Choosing tiles for your home can be daunting. Because there are so many options, so many choices and so many styles it can feel a little overwhelming. This is why getting the right advice from the experts is worth its weight in gold.
What’s Your Style?
Your personal taste and lifestyle reflects who you are, this is important when designing your home interior, because it’s what turns a house into your home. Here are some things to consider before you make your selection.
- Don’t be ruled by rules – if you’re renovating or extending an older property, mix it up. Adding a modern element to a traditional home can provide a sophisticated foil that adds another dimension to the look and feel of the home.
- Consider the type of traffic and wear the area will have and factor in how the tile will be cleaned and maintained. The right choice will pay dividends for years to come.
- Invest in a good tiler- the installation of your tiles is just as important as the selection to create a beautifully finished space.
Glazed porcelain tiles are the most commonly used because they’re relatively easy to install and are resilient enough to withstand heavy traffic and harsh cleaning products. Available in a wide variety of styles and colours there is a range to suit every taste and budget.
Natural or composite stone tiles are beautiful, but because they are porous, they will require more care and regular sealing for durability. Properly sealed the natural beauty of this product can add warmth and character although in heavy traffic areas or areas where there are likely to be spills, leaks or overflows, a more robust tile might be a better choice.
Your Home – Your Style
Be creative and think about how you could incorporate tiles as a feature. Whether it’s an entry space or large living area, the clever use of pattern and colour can inject mood, tone and texture to transform any space from ordinary to spectacular.
Bathroom tiles don’t have to be boring, choose a colour or design that you love and bring it together with carefully chosen fixtures, fittings and accessories.
Consider using feature tiles to create an impact or highlight a specific aspect of your bathroom or wet area. Combine with creative lighting solutions for a real statement.
Trends come and go but strong design can transform a home
Creative combinations can enhance any interior and transform walls and floors. Whatever your preferred style, step one is to consider the proportion of the space and choose a tile that is relative to the size of the room.
