In the second of our three part series on selection tips, we want to focus on tile. Backsplash, shower walls, flooring, there are many uses for tile since it is beautiful, durable, and timeless. Sometimes considered a small part of the design, it has the potential to make a big impact on the design. Here are some helpful tips when choosing tile.
Tile Selecting Tips
This is always an important factor when making a selection and it’s essential to discuss it at the beginning so those assisting you during this process know what to show you. Keep in mind that the more custom and unique the tile the higher the price point.
Are you looking for a sleek tile, or one that has texture. Both have their place in design but some are more durable than others so it is important to keep that in mind. If you are looking for backsplash looks and budget are the biggest things to consider but if you want tile flooring then you need to think about whether the material is easily scratched or slip resistant.
Did you want a simple subway tile design, a unique mosaic look, or maybe you wanted a pattern created by geometric shapes? This can add visual interest to your space and make a great focal point.
Tile is an easy way to add a pop of color to a space or make a subtle statement in the design. A white kitchen can come alive with a soft blue backslash or a mosaic pattern can create a beautiful design in the master bathroom.
Tile remains a popular choice for homeowners. It is a timeless design element and is often considered an eco-friendly option for those who want to use sustainable building materials.
