While purchasing the tiles for your kitchen you should effectively do the proper research and look for the space available in your kitchen. There are various designs and colors available for you to match. And you should focus on getting the best one that suits your taste. If you have a small kitchen you should go for getting the light colored Kitchen floor tiles. This will enhance the looks and make your kitchen look spacious. On the other hand if you have a good area, you can go for getting the dark colored tiles that looks great and matches with your kitchen theme.
Most people do not like the idea of tiling their bathroom walls from floor to ceiling. Your bathroom will end up looking like a public restroom. The best idea is to tile the walls unto eye level or a little more. You can give borders to the tile arrangement. White tiles bordered by tiles in another color like red or blue looks good. You can also use different colored tiles to create a border. Patterned tiles also make good borders for an assembly of plain tiles. Border tiles ought to be thinner than the tiles that make up the body f the wall.
Another important aspect of tiling small bathrooms is tiling the shower or bath area differently. The tiles in the shower area should match the tiles in the rest of the bathroom. The tiles in the shower area can be of a different color or pattern from that of the rest of the bathroom. Otherwise you can use the same tiles but lay them out in a different arrangement. The idea is to demarcate the bath area without being too obvious.
You can also make the painting procedure easier by using stencils to decorate the area around the shower. Stencils are very convenient to use, cheap to buy and are available in any local crafts store. You can buy the stencils according to the theme of your decoration. The popular themes available are waves, beach balls and others.
Basically, that fast wearing out of the paint will compel you to re-paint your bathroom repeatedly which can be a lot of expenses. With tiles, you can have them for years. You don't have to replace them every now and then. All you have to do is just maintain their decorative looks.
Tiles also come in a variety of sizes, which when pieced together can create quite a unique look. You can choose to tile the entire wall from floor to ceiling with both the same color and type of tile. Another option is to mix it up and have one color of tile on the bottom of the wall and another color towards the top separated by narrow, textured tile pieces that act as a chair rail.
