The amazing things you can do with tiles

Tiles can be used anywhere in a property, not just in kitchens and bathrooms. The diverse range of sizes, styles and finishes means you can use them wherever you like and add some interest and texture to spaces. Whether you opt for large format tiles to cover an entire wall or smaller accentuating borders, you can create a unique decoration for the space. Tiles are also very easy to look after and you can even use modern under-floor heating if you want to avoid floors getting too cold.

If you’re looking to add a touch of class to a room you find tiling to suit both traditional and contemporary styles. Stone and stone-effect ones are great if you want that timeless look. For modern and minimalist looks monochromatic shades are a really good choice. Large format tiles are very popular with contemporary designers at the moment.

You can use tiles to make a real statement in your design if you are confident about combining colours and using patterns. With the first option you should try to stick to two or three different shades to avoid overloading the senses. Subtle splashes of colour in strategic places can create a fantastic finish. If you use a pattern make sure you lay the tiles out first and take care to get the continuity right.

Border tiles can add an extra dimension to your decor. You’ve done the hard work already with the main tiles so why not frame it like a piece of art and make it truly stand out? You could use the borders to add another splash of colour or for contrast.

When you choose tiling it is always important to think ahead to the installation. You can buy the most beautiful tiles on the market but if you get the fitting wrong the space won’t look as good as it can. It is very easy to make a mess of the grouting or get mixed up with the layout. If you do the job yourself you’ll need to take care and make sure you have some spares just in case you accidentally break any. Hiring an experienced provider to do the job for you may be the safest option.
