Nothing Else Compares
There are many methods people employ to create a more hospitable atmosphere to their homes, which while temporarily visually pleasing, ultimately leave those who dwell within longing for change in a relatively short period of time.
Paint – While this may seem like the most viable solution for reinventing the walls or floor of a room, they may contain certain inherent undesirable characteristics. When one is painting a room they will often choose a colour which seems bold and reflects the pieces which are currently being used as décor. The problem with this however is that trends change rather often and if you decide on a whole new style for a room, then there's a good chance you will need to paint yet again to match. Even when choosing a neutral tone, influences such as direct sunlight, smoking, or even an above or below average temperature can cause discolouration, thus leaving the stylist to feel their original vision for the room has vanished into a muted version of its intended effect.
Rugs and Carpet – While these are good for keeping a floor warmer in the winter, they tend to be far more hassle than they are worth. Carpets attract dirt like a magnet and while regular vacuum cleaners may give the appearance of cleanliness, the truth is there are all kinds of unpleasantness still remaining in the fibers long after the room is "clean.” This can be brutally uncomfortable for someone with dust allergies and make the home never quite feel fresh.
Wallpaper – Messy, difficult, and time-consuming, this once popular choice of wall covering is now finding itself in the twilight of fashion thoughts for not only its lack of functionality, but also for the disaster which generally arises from attempting to remove and replace it.
Floor and Wall Tiles Are the Quality Choice
Utilizing stone or ceramic tiles on either the floor or walls
of a home greatly reduces cleaning time, worry, and the necessity to "change with the times.” Considered a classic for well over a century, tiles add a touch of class and style to any home, as well as an added layer of protection from moisture damage and mold. Tiles applied to the walls in a washroom or kitchen sink backsplash will rebuff the wayward droplets of water which frequent the area and additionally when placed as the backsplash behind the stove can make cleanup a breeze should sauces or soups boil and splatter as they often do while cooking.
Choosing appropriate floor and wall tiles for your next home renovation or building project is a smart and economical way to make your home look like a million dollars, at a minute fraction of the cost.
