Here we go:

Easy To Install

While it always pays to have expert help, tiles are a great option because they are so easy to install. Did you know that nearly 40 percent of homeowners who complete a home improvement project on their own end up regretting it?

They botch the job or leave their home in turmoil for so long the renovation is more work and expense than it is worth.

Tile is different. Once you realize the possibilities it is easy to do it yourself.

And for larger jobs that require more expertise, you’ll find the professional installation is done fast and easy.

Unfortunately, for most homeowners, there is still one major problem with tiles. They fail to see the possibilities!

We have you covered. Tiles will be a great addition to every part of your home.

Look at all you have to choose from:


There are different materials that make up different types of tiles. These range in expense and ease of installation.

Examples of types include:

  • Natural Stone
  • Porcelain
  • Ceramic
  • Terracotta
  • Vinyl
  • Glass

The type you pick will depend on the look and design you want to create. But just as important is the traffic your room receives.

Direct Traffic

There is a wide variety of different types of materials you can use for your floors in your home. Creating an effect with tiles means first asking yourself which materials to use.

For instance, in stone tiles, there is a big difference in Granite, Onyx, Marble, and Quartzite. The same is true for vinyl tiles and their durability.

Your flooring in walkways and outdoor areas will need to be more durable and weather proof than the barely used dining room that is set aside for special occasions.

Design For Space Type

The material isn’t just functional. With the right look, you can transform any space.

Rich patterns will create a more elegant and sophisticated space. You can transform your bathroom into the look and feel of a personal spa by using intricate designs.

The best part is tile can do the work for you. You can choose products that create this effect without toiling away to get the placements perfect.

Focusing on lines will also enlarge a space. Watch what happens when vertical tile placement accents a hall.

Or, try vertical lines on your walls. This design trick can make your spaces seem larger.

You don’t need to knock down a wall or raise the ceilings. Using design principles will help you bring more space to the living room, kitchen, dining room, halls, and bedrooms.

Every living space will be more beautiful.

Yes, beyond the floors and all you can do in every room, there are a variety of uses for the material in your home.

Get Up Off The Tile Floor

We all know that tiles work in parts of your bathroom. For instance, a tile shower is standard in many homes.

And you may use tiles in your kitchen for protection behind the countertops and a way to beautify the space.

But the material is great for every part of your home. Beyond flooring, tile work can make every space more beautiful.

Tin Ceilings

One of our favorite effects is tin ceilings. You can use any material, but this ornate decorative touch can turn the function of your ceiling into a centerpiece for every room.


We all know how well the material can conduct and reflect heat. But beyond functionality, using tiles in your fireplace will set your living room apart.

Ditch the brick for something more beautiful.

Room Dividers

Open floor plan living is great. The materials give us the best of both worlds too.

You can use glass or opaque tiles to carry light and still create an element of privacy. You’ll find this makes the space seem larger.

Walls and Mosaics

You can bring all those same great design elements to any space in your home. Using the material for decorative effects means transforming a wall into art.

Patio and Outdoor Spaces

Outdoor living enthusiasts know that the material can make any patio and garden space even more beautiful. You can choose wall and floor tiles for the outdoor areas of your home to create a balance between outdoor living and indoor elegance.

Interspersing the use of the material in your garden and landscaped areas will also expand the look and feel of your living space. Terracotta tiles and decorative accents around steps, seating, and flower pots integrate the look of your home with outdoor elements.

Tile for Every Taste

Once you realize the ease, affordability, and elegance of tile it’s hard to find a better way to boost the value of your space and beautify your home. With the real estate market at a furious pace, there’s no better time to reinvest in your asset and make your home as comfortable as possible.

And one of the benefits of the material is that it’s so easy to work with and install.

You can start in the bathroom, move out to the patio, and then move in on the ceiling. Every area of your home can have a unique and beautiful look as you go.

Too many homeowners associate the material with shower work or kitchen flooring. But there are amazing trends in brick, wood, and cement appearances for the material.

You can find a great option for every taste! Don’t wait.
