Questions About Tile?

I’m working on a little side project, and I’m looking for some feedback; that’s where you come in!

What questions do you have about tile?  Do you wonder about what kinds of tile to use on particular projects?  Questions about designing a backsplash?  Where to use tile?

Let me know what you want to know!  🙂

Contemporary Tile Design

I had the pleasure of working with a couple building a fantastic contemporary home in Hudson.  The home was designed by a local architect in Hudson, and I was hired to assist the homeowners with their interior selections.

I enjoy custom tile design, and had a blast working on this home!  We used the same porcelain tile in both bathrooms, but arranged it differently to define each space.

The main tile is a green-gray concrete look; the accent tile is actually a striped tile incorporating deeper greens, taupe and caramel tones!  We also used some irridescent green glass tiles as an accent in both spaces for a little sparkle.

So far, I have only been able to photograph the bathrooms; I hope to get shots of their fantastic kitchen at some point, as well, which includes recycled glass countertops from Vetrazzo and a gorgeous wall of glass mosiac tile!  The cabinetry throughout the home is bamboo, which adds such warmth to the spaces.

I would love to hear what you think of the tile design; it is a very subtle pattern, but adds just enough custom flair.  Leave your comments here!

Minimum Investment, Maximum Impact

Not every interior design project needs to start from scratch.  On one of my recent projects, my clients were happy with their master bathroom and kitchen backsplash tile.  However, they wished they had added more detail to the tile when they built their home originally.

That’s where I came in!  Instead of tearing all the existing tile out (why would we, when it’s in great condition, they still like it, and it’s expensive!) we simply removed specific tiles and replaced them with glass accent tiles.

Now, there was still a fair amount of noise and mess involved with the project, and not all of the tiles removed from the walls did so in one piece.  Since the homeowners had extra tiles stashed in their basement to replace any casualties, we were set to give the kitchen and master bath a fresh new look!

The bathroom tiles are glossy, contemporary glass mosaics.  The kitchen backsplash incorporated rustic glass tiles with slate.  When I get photos of the kitchen backsplash, I will be sure to post them for you.

For minimum investment of time and money, my clients are in love with their home all over again.  Let me know what you think – gets your wheels turning doesn’t it??  This could be done in your home, too!

Did You Know…

interior designers are available to help you on your do-it-yourself project? We realize that not everyone needs full service interior design – where we coordinate the installation, product ordering and project management for you. Perhaps you just need a little help in knowing where to start. What paint colors should you choose? What about furniture arrangement? What about designing that new tile backsplash for your kitchen? Give us a call! A few hours of design time can save you lots of money and time in the end; having to repaint the entire basement because you hate the color is not going to make your husband a happy man. We can save you that aggravation; we can provide a simple consultation, or we can also provide product and/or installation services. Whatever portion of your project you need help with, we are happy to be there for you.  Have you ever used an interior designer and were so happy you did?  Or, did you regret NOT using a designer on your last project?  We would love to hear your design project stories – leave a comment here!   We hope to hear from you soon!
