Nailing your look
With so many tiles available in all shapes, sizes, styles and textures, pinning down a favourite can be tricky. The look of the rest of your home can be a useful guide – brick-laid subways in misty grey, blue and white have a Hamptons vibe, for example – but don’t feel bookmarked. Blurring the lines between styles helps you stay faithful to your own taste. Creating a mood board of images gathered from magazines and websites will assist with narrowing down your preferences, and handy helpers, such as the Beaumont Tiles ‘What’s My Style’ online quiz, can provide inspiration and even tailored mood boards for your pet project. “It’s just like having a stylist to help you discover your current style, no matter what your budget or your purpose for renovation,” says Rachel Gilding, strategic designer at Beaumont Tiles.
