Refresh Your Living Space...

Make a small change in your home with minimal outlay

For those of us looking at tired living spaces, desperate for a change but don’t want full-on hassle and huge investment, a small change could be the solution. Read our discussion on design idea solutions below and scroll through photo's above for inspiration...

At Tile Warehouse, it's all about Design and Tile Selection made EASY!

Let’s talk Kitchens

If kitchen walls are tiled, splashing on a coat of paint is not going to do the trick. So why not remove a small section of old tiles behind the stove or sink and create a unique splash back? Tiles are available in all shapes, sizes and colours and that means there are plenty of options to create a bespoke wall covering. For inspiration and the generation of ideas, check out these gorgeous mosaics and decorators…

“Add one striking element to make more of an impact such as patterned, textured or uniquely shaped tiles.”

What you need to know about splashbacks...Splashbacks should be durable, easy to clean and have a good seal down to the benchtop. Anything goes depending on taste from the most detailed mosaics to full porcelain slab tiles that are three metres long. Aside from selection, an equally important consideration is maintenance. With today's silicone grout, tiles are easy to clean, so long as the right grout is specified. Be wary of tilers offering a too good to be true' price as they may be using a cheaper grout that won't wear as well. Always ensure an Epoxy grout is used to ensure a quality result.

Bathrooms

If the thought of planning and fitting a bathroom before Christmas fills you with horror, a few simple changes could banish the bathroom blues.

Bathroom tiles are relatively easy and inexpensive to update so they’re the perfect way to introduce a welcome splash of colour or an eye-catching finish. A decorative or bold floor combined with white wall tiles is a fantastic solution if you like the idea of using pattern. Turning things around, a feature wall with plain flooring is equally as effective. Here are some examples to get the creative juices flowing (note: most tiles can be used in both kitchens and bathrooms)…

If you’ve chosen an amazing wall tile and desire a timeless floor to balance your look, the white Carrara marble-look, but in a porcelain tile, is incredibly popular and timeless. The beauty of porcelain tile is that it doesn’t absorb like marble, is maintenance-free and a lot more affordable. It will give you a luxury and glamorous look without the price tag. Tile Warehouse has a number of porcelain tile options in Carrara and Calacatta looks suitable for floors (and walls);
