Decorating any room takes time, effort, creativity and most of all individuality. Lets take the kitchen and bathroom as examples as these are the rooms you would predominantly lay floor and wall tiles. You have an idea of what paint you will use to compliment your tiles so all you need now is the practical aspect to achieve an idyllic space.
Floor and wall tiles have been a popular, decorative asset with the more affluent areas donning the designs. Dating back to the 18th century ceramic tiles could be found covering entire walls of a palace such as The Royal Palace of Madrid and many others. They served as a decorative purpose and illustrated the wealth of the home.
Available at a cost to suit any budget, tiles appear in everyones home today, either in the kitchen, bathroom or both. In larger houses there may be tiled entrances, which add to the overall grandness of the abode.
Your choice of tile will depend on the perspective you see the room in which you are dressing. You may favour the modern aspect of bright, bold or block colours or delve into the past choosing art deco or busy but radiant patterns. Whichever design you opt for you can be sure to achieve a unique and fresh room full of cordiality and ambience.
Tiles come in so many different styles and patterns you begin to wonder if you will ever find the perfect kind for you. Slate, marble, travertine, teracotta, porcelanosa, natural stone tiles, the list is endless. If you are lucky enough to have an exact idea in your head you can then go on to choosing the feel of your tile. What would best suit the room in question? Shiny, matt, smooth, grainy, bumpy? If you are at a complete loss then do some research on the internet in order to gain ideas on what has been successful for others.
If smooth or bumpy, modern or traditional is not for you then consider a mosaic effect. Available as small squares you can fit together or larger rectangles and squares with mosaic characteristics you can configure an arrangement to best suit your taste.
Requiring patience and precision in order to achieve the desired result, you can choose to leave the laying of the tiles to professionals or give it a go yourself. My only advice when going it alone is to do your research first. Ensure you prepare surfaces and always use the correct tools. Keeping this in mind you should have no problems and the end result will be a flawless room.
Tiles are easy to preserve and require minimal maintenance. They can be purchased within any budget and serve the intended purpose of looking stylish whilst protecting the room from damp.
