Enforced time at home has given us the opportunity to pay attention to things like maintenance required, gardening and other DIY projects. The time has also proven our homes are truly our castles and we need to make them comfortable, beautiful, and calming to create a happy space to spend most of our time in. This sudden change to our home lives will have an impact on our wellbeing, so now is a good time to redecorate your home and make it a better place to live and work. Tiles remain a popular choice for homes, having the benefit of being both practical and decorative. They are made from a range of materials and offer harder wearing, protective surfaces that are easy to keep clean. They are also aesthetically pleasing whether used for an entire room, to create a decorative finishing or as a single feature wall, creating an atmosphere which adds to the look and feel of the living space.
SOME GREAT BENEFITS OF USING TILES FOR ANY SPACE:
Long Lifespan: Tiles are resilient and long lasting as long as they have been properly installed and maintained. A quality installation can last up to 20 years and longer!
Tiles are Durable: They are tough; by delivering thermal, chemical and mechanical characteristics, they are able to withstand impact, wear and tear in high traffic areas, stains and cracks, all while being aesthetically pleasing.
Hygienic and Environmentally Friendly: Tiles improve indoor air quality due to having no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Fortunately, since tile is made in kilns at very high temperatures, there are no VOCs in the finished product. This makes tiles inhospitable to dust mites, mould, germs and bacteria, which are often causes for allergies and asthma.
Achieve Luxury for Less: Having such a wide choice of tiles means there is a tile available to suit any area of your home/office including walls, fireplaces, ceilings and floors. Tiles serve to express your own creative desires and can transform any space. They are also easy to replace, add value to your home and because they last a long time, are an economical investment.
Get Started: Before you get going, decide on the style of your home and how you want to implement the tiling. It’s also important to take your room size and the size of the tiles into account. Large tiles generally make spaces look bigger. Don’t forget to choose the right grout colour as this also affects the appearance and effect that the tiles have.
