One of the biggest advantages of installing tiles into your home is the insane amount of flexibility it offers for interior designers. It does not matter what room of the house you are using it in. it can be the bathroom or the kitchen, or it can even be the hallways. Tiles are designed as such that they can be made use of in a lot of different ways and in a lot of different scenarios.
If you just have the correct knowledge regarding the use of tiles, your tiling installation really has the potential to accentuate the interior of your homes.
With all of the above being said, the thing that we are focusing on at the moment is to guide you through the different ways you can make use of tiles in your home. We will show you the process by which you can create layout tiles inside your home so that the existing interior of the home really pops out.
It really does not matter how big your living room or, in fact, the entire living space of your home is. What matters is that you should invest some time into the topic so as to get a better understanding of how to complement your interior design.
Here’s a list of things that can be done.
1. Renewing the Fireplace
It is true that the fireplace really does not take up too much space in the living room but it definitely does not mean that it does not attract attention. It really is the opposite case. Fireplaces are like the centerpiece of any living room. What this means is that you need to really decorate the living space with that in mind, that the fireplace is the main attraction in the room.
So, how exactly do you make a big enough impact with a space that is generally small? The answer lies in tiles made for the fireplace. It does not matter what kind of fireplace you have, be it wood, electric fire, or gas, when you upgrade this basic fireplace with a tile layout, it really does have the potential to bring out the maximum aesthetic appeal of the space.
The best thing about the whole thing is that it takes very little effort as well. The first thing that you need to understand is where exactly the tiles for the fireplace will work best.
The hearth is basically the base at the front of your fireplace. This extends out to the front in order to protect the flooring that is in the surrounding area. It is for this reason that tiles need to be able to complement the flooring while at the same time be strong and also durable. The main reason for this is to reinforce safety.
Remember that this is the place where you will generally keep a lot of tools such as tongs and pokers, and logs as well if you happen to have a wooden fireplace. This means that the tiles you pick will need to be able to withstand a lot of stress and duress. If we factor this into our decision then we will quickly realize that it is best to opt for fireplaces made of natural stone.
If you want to bring in tiling to the fireplace mantle that you have, you will also have a very wide range of options to choose from. You can keep the fireplace neutral if you make use of a white fireplace set. You can even be a lot more boisterous and go for more extreme designs. It really does not matter how you do it, as long as you tile your fireplace, you really have the ability to make a statement piece that is really eye-catching.
You can even further expand on this and tile the fireplace setting you have as well. This will give you the ability to reinforce the approach of the interior of the rest of the room.
You can go for tiles that are split face or you can even decorate your fireplace with something that is much more in tandem with the rest of the interior. This will give you the ability to seamlessly integrate the new tiling installation into the wider aesthetic of the entire room.
It will also at the same time stand out as being the main point of focus in the room.
2. The Shower and The Bath-tub
Tiles and bathrooms are an absolute match made in heaven. With that being said, there really are not much better ways of complimenting the normal bathroom features such as the shower or the bathtub than by making use of some bathroom tiles that are decorative.
When you install new shower or bath tiles, you will instantly be adding a whole new dimension to the bathrooms in your home. It does not matter if it is new or if it is old.
If you happen to be already using tiles in your bathrooms, it could be on the floors or the walls, you want to make sure of one thing. That is to not overdo the entire thing with too many tiles. This can make the overall appearance look very clustered and not clean in nature.
Generally speaking, the following are the best ideas to abide by. You should use mosaic tiles for the floors of your bathroom, XL tiles when it comes to walls, and then a texture or design that has been coordinated for the tiles in your shower.
