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! 🙂
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!
We removed every other tile in the border pattern, and replaced it with glass mosaics.
Here we added a glass mosaic tile border. The wall color changed from tan to refreshing blue based on one of the tile colors.
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!
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!
