Home design has come a long way in recent times, homeowners in the UK are always on the look out for a sleek new look for their home, yet how many overlook the faithful tile as a perfect solution for rooms outside of the traditional areas such as the kitchen, en-suite or bathroom.
The tile industry has come a long way in creating rich and bold colours, amazing designs and cutting edge specifications to suit the living quarters, bedrooms, hallways and conservatories of many homes here in the UK. If you travel to European destinations such as Italy, Spain or France you will be no stranger to seeing tiled living areas and bedrooms – there are many advantages to this, especially the ability to keep a room cool in hot weather, the easy cleaning potential and the clean finish.
So, what about homeowners here in the UK? Well, as our climate is cooler, tiled flooring is best used with an underfloor heating system and a cosy rug to keep the room warm in the winter but it is in the hotter summer months the benefits of a tiled floor in your living room or bedroom come into it’s own, tiles are wonderfully cooling, hence warmer countries using them as their main design choice.
So, what’s to think about, if you want a trendy new look for your home, with a long lasting, durable finish you would be mad not to give tiles careful consideration, with the correct product to suit the room it could be argued that floor tiles will last considerably longer than laminate floors or carpet and if you choose wisely you will have a floor covering that stands the test of time in both style and practicality.
Why stop at the floors, a feature wall in tiles can look stunning around a living room fire place! Just choose something bold or bright and offset it against more neutral surrounding walls….. have fun choosing and put your stamp on, it is your home after all!!
