The sun is shining and you’re outdoors enjoying all that summer has to offer – yet when you and your family come in after a great summer day, you want to enjoy your home just as much! If you’re considering summer home renovations that make you love your space even more this season, creating a great space for family, get-togethers and more, you don’t have to do a complete overhaul to improve the look of your home. Even small updates can add value to your home!
Tile additions are an easy way to elevate the style of your home, and their versatility and variety make them great for creating welcoming rooms in your home and outdoor spaces. Get design ideas from the many ways you can style with tile this season:
Ceramic tile flooring adds value to your home and is a resilient and great looking choice for flooring, but if you don’t want to make an investment in ceramic or porcelain, ceramic-look luxury vinyl tile can provide the same style, for less, and is also a great option. Besides flooring, there are plenty of other ways to incorporate tile into your mini or major home renovation.
You’re not limited to indoors with tile – add to the curb appeal and value of your home while creating a welcoming space with outdoor tile. It’s the season for BBQs and pool parties so you want to make sure your family and friends will feel comfortable in your outdoor spaces. If you’re running out of space for entertaining guests, installing a tile patio in your backyard creates another area for socializing, also great for relaxing with family. Plus, updating existing patio flooring that has seen better days and enhancing your home’s landscaping with tile are great ways to add a lot of style, for not a lot of money.
Tile is more than flooring, it’s versatility and range of designs make it great for so many uses in your home. From accent walls to focal points like fireplaces and more, tile is an eye-catching addition to your home design. Porcelain tile like the one used on this fireplace comes in many different styles and colors that will elevate the style of your spaces. Vinyl tile is also a great lower-cost alternative to ceramic and porcelain that can create stunning designs in your kitchen, bathroom and more.
Mix It Up
Mixing and matching materials is a fun way to style with tile – mixed materials are a popular choice for kitchens, bathrooms and more. Ceramic or glass tile looks great paired with rustic metal and wood accents, heightening the design of any space. Another way to mix up your tile design is opting for wood-look tile. This tile is a great option for areas where damage from moisture is a concern, like bathrooms and outdoor spaces. It also creates a unique look with different colors and textures incorporated into the tile design.
Don’t forget your fifth wall – the ceiling is often overlooked in home design, ceiling tiles can add flair and a pop of color to kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms and beyond. Ceiling tiles can also give your space a finished look and are great for covering damaged drywall or plaster and outdated popcorn ceilings. Depending on your budget, you can find beautiful ceramic tile options or faux-antique glue-up and drop in tiles for adding vibrancy and texture to your spaces.
