If you are thinking of retiling your bathroom, you’d be forgiven for being a little overwhelmed at the wealth of options out there in 2015. What is more, with so many people now opting to shop online, it isn’t just the material or look of tiles that can provide people with a range of choices; the volume of companies and businesses supplying tiles is huge. Hence, here’s a look at three options that range in style, price and appearance whilst being equally stunning options.
Do not be put off by the department store label, at least without first exploring your options. You might not correlate ‘stunning’ with ‘department store’ but in an effort to keep up with their competitors, modern department stores these days don’t just offer the basics or budget options. Further, department stores do continue to offer though stunning results for the prices they charge.
Take a look, for example, at the Wickes website. A favourite and hugely popular UK department store, Wickes offer a range of bathroom tiles. Many of these tiles are referred to as ‘replica’ tiles. Again, do not be put off. The tiles Wickes provide and advertise as ‘replica’ tiles are fully ceramic, hard wearing and perfectly legitimate options. The ‘replica’ label is affixed to certain ceramic tile options as aesthetically these tiles are made to look like marble or stone. Whilst not the real thing, they are certainly a stunning and perfectly viable option for anyone sticking to a tight budget.
Specialist Tile and Home Interior Companies
If working within a strict and perhaps quite restrictive budget isn’t your main priority, lucky you. Really. There are so many fantastic options to choose from, natural stone, marble and porcelain being the three most popular. Hence, it is well worth your while checking them all out, and one way of doing that is to turn to a specialist tile company such as R F Interiors.
R F Interiors are the cream of the crop when it comes to tiles, if it is luxury and longevity you are looking for. By their own admission, the company ‘hold[s] a great passion for the beauty that all natural stone tiles have to offer, particularly the exquisiteness that stone can bring to any project’. Further, R F Interiors add that: ‘Our main aim here at R F Interiors is to ensure our customers achieve their own dreams and aspirations by finding beauty within our products, giving absolute satisfaction by turning any area into a unique environment suited to the individual.’ Hence, R F Interiors are my preference over the plethora of other UK tile providers out there when I’m working on a project that requires a finish of the highest ‘spec’.
Of their bathroom tile options, their Angelica Marble are a particularly stunning and neutrally coloured option with a great finish that ensure a bathroom space not only lasts, but as well will not go out of fashion or look dated in even ten years time. For those who are revamping or rethinking that ‘forever home’ though, it is also worth speaking direct with companies like R F Interiors as many (R F Interiors included) offer a number of bespoke tiling services that mean you can needn’t just choose the tiles of your dreams, but could even have them created. It is definitely an exciting idea for anyone with the money and provides a home with an instant and very personal wow factor. To see for yourself, visit the R F Interiors website.
Patterned and Period Tiles
Lastly, there are those folk from whom personality is everything. And that is great as bathrooms can often end up being a bit cold or lacking in personality. Let’s face it, we don’t spend the bulk of our time in our bathroom(s) and often figure slapping some tiles on and perhaps sticking a candle beside the bath and colour coordinating our towels and bath mats will suffice. This needn’t be the case though.
Handmade, hand painted, vintage and otherwise quirky tiling options that can all be put to stunning effect within a bathroom space are out there. Take, for example, the tiles sold by Fired Earth. Fired Earth provides a visually stunning selection of tiles suitable for use in bathrooms. Hence, to browse their collections or just to see what is out there, it is definitely worth checking out the Fired Earth website. Stunned, dazed and amazed perhaps, but one thing is a certainty – you will not be disappointed. Whatever era, period, country or culture takes your fancy, Fired Earth are sure to have a stunning bathroom tiling option to suit your taste.2015-09-30
