Surface Selection 101
Tile allows for originality and creates that wow-factor in kitchens and bathrooms. With endless options and possibilities, clients oftentimes have a hard time making a decision. Courtesy of the Sea Pointe Design & Remodel Design Team, below are some of our favorite tile options, combinations and applications.
For a client seeking an elegant and understated tile that doesn’t compromise on design and style, we suggest employing a marble mosaic. When an ultra-stylish design feature, such as a mosaic, comes together with an elegant and timeless design material, such as marble, the results are stunning.
“When it comes to mixing and matching tile, harmony is key” says Sea Pointe Designer, Georgia Clarke. Indecisiveness is inevitable when it comes to tile selection, and we always encourage our clients to think outside the box. Limiting a kitchen remodel or bathroom design to one or two simple tiles is ordinary. At Sea Pointe Design & Remodel, we believe every design can be unique! With professional design guidance, featuring four different tiles in a shower can be stunningly seamless!
Subway style tile has been a staple of design since its inception. That being said, there are so many ways to take this classic design element to the next level. Utilizing materials such as metal or glass, will bring a breath of fresh air into a subway tile feature. Consider alternative patterns, such as herringbone, when using glass tiles.
Porcelain tile “wood” planks have been pushed to the front lines of flooring options. Available in various colors and sizes, this is a great option for homeowners who love the wood floor aesthetic, but have concerns about durability and longevity. Not to mention, porcelain tile wood planks keep perfectly cool in our Southern California climate. But why limit this versatile design material to flooring? Explore the option of porcelain tile wood planks on walls for a stylized design aesthetic. You won’t be disappointed!
Don’t shy away from unconventional designs! Any type of home remodeling is a large investment of not only time, but also money. When it’s all said and done, a newly remodeled space should be a reflection of the homeowner. We encourage clients to select materials that excite them and bring life into a space. We want every client to feel like a “kid in a candy shop” during the design process and it’s our duty to translate that excitement into a beautiful design.
