Furniture and décor are both important for setting the theme of your home’s interior, but the materials you choose for your tiles, counters and backsplash can really help you achieve the look you want. This may sound like a minor element, but creating a cohesive design depends on all factors. Imagine trying to create a Victorian style while having modern, minimal floors and countertops!
“Traditional” is an interior style defined by its own name – classic look where you’ll feel comfortable as soon as you walk in the room, and it’ll almost feel like you’ve jumped right into a home magazine. So how do you get the traditional look with your tiles? Here are some tips we recommend:
- Stick to classic, muted colors when it comes to choosing your tiles in a traditional kitchen. Be sure everything matches well, and use other décor as statement pieces rather than the room’s design. You can also play with patterns, like textured quartz, to make the room feel cozy and inviting.
- Renovate your bathroom features to match. Getting the traditional style you want for your home won’t work if your shower and sink are more modern features with different lines and shapes. Having a shower with custom-tiling can turn your bathroom into a serene spa, making it a room you actually enjoy being in! Choose the same muted colors and interesting textures as the other areas of your home for a uniform look.
- Take advantage of tiling in areas other than your floors. For instance, too many wall decorations can make a kitchen or bathroom look crowded and cluttered. But you can still get the home-y, traditional look by adding a kitchen backsplash or island.
