Choos­ing tiles that fit your style and home

Jamaica Gleaner - - BEAUTIFUL HOMES -

HOW YOU dec­o­rate and fin­ish your home says a lot about your style, and a great way to ex­press your cre­ativ­ity is through in­te­rior de­sign. Of course, tiles are es­sen­tial in any project. Let’s discover what tiles say about your cre­ative ap­proach and the best ways to select them for your home.

Choose nat­u­ral stone ef­fects and wood-looks if you pre­fer earthy decor. A nat­u­ral back­ground al­lows you to make your mark with colour and tex­ture to bring out the best of the room. Traver­tine, slate, mar­ble, ox­ide and wood-looks are ex­cel­lent choices to start with and are great for out­door spa­ces as well.

Tex­tured tiles add char­ac­ter to an oth­er­wise neu­tral room. Make a bold state­ment with a 3D-tex­tured fea­ture wall. Cre­ative Build­ing Fin­ishes range of bev­elled tiles is ideal for the in­ter­est­ing and at­ten­tion-seek­ing per­son­al­ity.

Con­tem­po­rary brings to­gether many el­e­ments of de­sign. This style some­times refers to the ur­ban chic in­di­vid­ual. The look of­ten com­bines in­dus­trial and glam el­e­ments. To achieve this decor, use tiles with brick, stone or metal­lic looks with soft tones and vin­tage chic fin­ishes.

Tiles with mod­ern so­phis­ti­ca­tion are all about a very clean look and fin­ish. Cre­ative Build­ing Fin­ishes has a wide se­lec­tion of wall, floor and mo­saic tiles to achieve this style in your home. Her­ring­bone, arabesque and French pat­tern are just some of the many de­signs avail­able in mar­ble, traver­tine and porce­lain looks. These are nor­mally pre­ferred by per­sons who like ele­gant set­tings and soft neu­tral tones.

One favourable ben­e­fit of us­ing tiles is the cre­ative free­dom you have in mak­ing your floor­ing or wall de­signs ex­press your style. Play­ing with geo­met­ric pat­terns, such as chevron and off­set, can also be a fun way to build upon the ex­ist­ing style of the tile you choose for your home.
