Once bonfire night is out of the way you know that Christmas is not very far behind. We are already starting to notice that a lot of our customers are coming to us looking for wall and floor tiles to complete their home improvement projects before the festive season begins.
New kitchens and bathrooms seem to be top of the list for most people and this time of year is great to find a little inspiration; shades of autumn work perfectly well in the home and look particularly great in rustic styled homes. Terracotta, brown, beige, gold and copper are all popular tones that add a sense of warmth and comfort; they look amazing in kitchens and variations of these types of shades can be found in kitchen wall tiles, both in ceramic or natural stone. Tumbled edges and textured surfaces all add to the rustic vibe.
Floor tiles are also available to complete the look, porcelain interpretations of natural stone are both practical and durable with very little maintenance involved. Add some underfloor heating and your kitchen or bathroom will be set for the coming winter.
So if you are rushing to finish a winter makeover, now is a great time to start looking for the essential finishing touches such as wall tiles, floor tiles, mosaics and coloured grouts.
If you are not sure what colours work well together just take inspiration from the fabulous array of natural shades that can be found outdoors right now!
Do you long for a new kitchen or bathroom but can’t bear the thought of all the upheaval? If this is how you feel then you are not on your own, though expense may come top of the list of reasons not to update your home, many of our customers browsing for new bathroom and kitchen tiles tell us that the mess, finding and organising various reputable trades people, moving furniture and emptying cupboards is what really got them in a fluster.
These projects are never going to be completely stress free, so here are five handy tips to help smooth the way:
First of all ensure that you are completely comfortable with anyone working in your home, friends and family recommendations are always a good option. Check references, qualifications and ask for photos of previous works completed wherever you can.
- Once you have found a kitchen or bathroom fitter that you trust you may find that they have a list of contacts that they can recommend for further jobs, such as tilers, plasterers, joiners and electricians.
- Look on the task of clearing out cupboards as a golden opportunity to de-clutter, throw out or recycle anything you don’t need or haven’t used in the last year. Anything you are not sure about pack away in a box, save for a year and if you don’t need to open the box you know you never really needed anything in it.
- Choosing new kitchen units, worktops, sanitary ware and tiles is something to be enjoyed not endured!
- Remember that the tradesmen taking over your home will only be there for a short time and once they have gone you will be left with a fabulous new bathroom or kitchen, complete with stylish new wall and floor tiles.
Of course we are slightly biased when it comes to choosing new tiles, but there is such a fabulous range of affordable kitchen and bathroom tiles around right now that we can’t help but be excited about our ranges.
Why not give Tiles4all a call, our friendly staff are always more than happy to help and can advise on current tiling trends!
The school holidays are nearly over, so now is the perfect time to start planning ahead for any home improvements you wish to make before the next set of holidays begin.
Choosing wall and floor tiles for your home can be a long drawn out process that takes lots of time and consideration. So If you are planning a new kitchen or bathroom don’t under estimate the amount of time that it may take to choose all your fixtures, fittings and tiles, because there is nothing worse than spending lots of time and money on home improvements to find that you don’t actually like the end results.
Allowing time to make the right choices will ensure that your kitchen or bathroom installation is something that you will love for many years to come.
Buying your kitchen and bathroom tiles online means that you can search the web for tiles in the comfort of your own home. Here at tiles4all we have a great website that is easy to navigate and is full of kitchen and bathroom wall and floor tile ranges.
