When you need to decorate your floors or walls, tiles are a great solution that not only look fantastic but also offer durability that far exceeds any other options available. Wallpapering, painting or carpeting might be a smaller initial investment, but over the years good quality tiles will pay for themselves many times over by still looking good long after paint or carpets are showing their age. Depending on your project, you will need different types, sizes and finishes of tiles, so here are some tips to make sure you choose the best ones for your needs.
Getting a tiling project underway can be an exciting time for any DIY enthusiast. But before you start getting ready to work, check out our list of essential items for your project so you don’t have to suddenly rush out to the hardware shop for something you’ve forgotten. The exact shopping list will depend on the project you are doing, but you should definitely have the basic essentials listed here…
About Our Blog
I think you'll agree that we all love our homes and love to improve them as much as we can. While the percentage of people who regularly do DIY has fallen in recent years that doesn't mean we are not interested in how our homes look – we are just less keen on doing the hard work ourselves. But whether you are a DIY fan who can turn their hand to anything or someone who prefers to sit back and let the decorator or interior designer work their magic we hope you will find some inspiration here.
If you are keen on colour or prefer neutrals, love natural beauty and texture, or super perfect finishes; whether you are an upcycler on a budget (I think that's many of us really) or able to splash out on designer items and beautiful unique art we are all drawn together by our love of all things in the home (and the garden too).
And if you are moving house we love to talk about that too – the excitement of a new place – new colours and finishes to choose, maybe some new furniture. And just the excitement of a new outlook from the windows, new plants sprouting in the garden (if you are lucky) and a new area to explore are reason enough to go through all the stress of the house buying process, packing up our things, entrusting them to a removals company or even shipping them off to self storage, and then unpacking all over again at the other end. But it is definitely worth it if you are fortunate enough to have found a better house for your needs and wants. And our pro tip about self storage if you do choose to use it for long-distance moves or simply to help with the logistics of the move is to use one that has a collection and delivery service. Whatever method of moving all your household possessions you choose to use don't forget to compare removals and storage prices and services from several different companies.
