Getting a new home is an exciting experience. Having a blank slate to design and decorate from scratch is part of the thrill of making a new place reflect your personal style. Floor tiles are just one aspect of a home’s interior you can customize to suit your style. Here are some tips to follow to choose the right residential flooring and wall tiles, plus details on how you can get vital tile installation tips to make the project simple and successful.
Before you choose floor tiles for your home renovation, you should take time to plan. Look through magazines and browse the web to find tiles you like. Try to keep a vision in mind of the theme you want for each room and for the entire house and choose tiles that work with that look.
Consider Room Size
Depending on the size of your room, you may want to choose tiles that make the space look bigger. Smaller tiles are better for areas like the kitchen and bathrooms, while larger tiles look great in hallways and open spaces. Large tiles can make rooms look larger, so if you have a tiny bathroom, choose large tiles to expand the appearance of the space. Using light coloured tiles also help make a space feel bigger.
Consider the Area to Be Tiled
Are you choosing tiles for the floor or wall? Is the area high traffic? Is the installation outside or inside the home? Will the area be exposed to moisture? These are important questions to ask yourself and your tile dealer before choosing tiles for your home. Some tiles are designed with better abrasion resistance and are better able to repel moisture.
Colour, Texture, Pattern, and Finishing
There are a multitude of tile choices available at Centura Tile to suit any commercial or residential space. For an industrial look, Nexa is a great option, and for a softer look, Nest is a perfect choice. Bedrooms that use Opus tiles look relaxing and serene, and Stone Blend Cementi works great to expand the appearance of small bathrooms, while creating a beautiful stone-marble look.
