The Observer Magazine - - CLASSIFIED -

Con­crete tiles with a satin fin­ish work well on floors: the pol­ish en­hances the sense of move­ment. A pol­ished floor com­bined with a matt wall gives tex­tu­ral nu­ance to a space.

dDe­cide on scale Your choice de­pends on what you want the tiles to do. A sm small loo can re­ally pop with a large pat­tern. For a chim­ney at the end of a long liv­ing room, try a bold pat­tern.
