Tiling Bathrooms and Kitchens
Gone are the days of bathroom tiling meaning square white tiles with a horizontal coloured border, and the modern tiles on the market offer a myriad of ways to update your bathroom or kitchen.
Tiles do not have to be square or even rectangular; look for tiles which create intricate geometric patterns, circles or the natural pattern of something like slate. Using textured and irregular tiles on your bathroom or kitchen walls gives a warmer feel to your home as plain white flat tiles can look very clinical and sterile.
Mosaic tiles are also popular for kitchens and bathrooms and have been around since Roman times. Modern ways of fitting mosaic tiles on a mesh backing makes them easier and quicker to apply.
