Tiled Interiors of Red Bank, N.J., previously known as A Step in Stone, knows that home improvements can make your house your dream home. Redoing the tile in your kitchen or bathroom can bring life back to a dull and lifeless space. If you could use a little life in your kitchen, we have some tips for choosing tile.
One of the most important things for any home improvement project is to set a budget. Figure out how much you can spend and how much you WANT to spend before even looking. You don’t want to fall in love with something only to realize you can’t afford or don’t want to spend that much on it.
Have you ever realized how the kitchen tends to be the center of your home? Maybe it’s the room where you all meet for breakfast or dinner, maybe it’s the room where the kids do their homework while you cook dinner. Is it where you read your paper in the morning, or watch the news? The kitchen is the hub and that’s why it needs to be both comfortable and practical. There might be a few different tiles in your kitchen, and the great thing about that is – it’s okay in the kitchen! Your backsplash can be different than your floor, counter tile or accent tile. The first thing you need to decide is where this tile is going to go. Will you use it as a pop of color or pattern in the backsplash? Will it work better as a neutral background?
Contrast is a vital design aspect when selecting tile for your home. You want to make sure the colors and patterns complement each other yet contrast well to bring the design to life. With more than 18 years of experience at Tiled Interiors, you know you’re design is in good hands.
The next thing to consider for your tile design is practicality. Your tile should be functional. You don’t want to realize two month down the road that the tile looks great, but stains easily or heats up quickly. For countertops, ceramic tile is durable and will hold up to heat from hot pans. It is also easy to clean and maintain. However, ceramic tile can easily crack or chip.
When choosing tile for your floor, practicality is definitely important. Is your kitchen a high traffic area coming from the back door? Do you have pets or small children? If the answer to these questions is yes, you want to choose something durable that might hide traffic dirt well.
