Tiling from all around the world
When looking to update your home — or even just one room — it can be very easy to let budgets run out of control. Flicking through design magazines and browsing in stores, you can get carried away looking at fancy polished marble surfaces and expensive hardwood furniture. However, it pays to remember that there are plenty of affordable options that look just as good and often perform better practically. Take, for instance, wood counters for kitchens.
A laminate flooring is one that is made to look like another material, usually hardwood, but which is much easier to care for and which may be much more durable overall. A laminate wood floor is also often lighter than a real wood floor, so you don't need to brace up the subfloor when the laminate is installed. It may also come in long sections rather than individual slats, so it's easier to install overall.
Area rugs can be a great way to spruce up or define your space and enhance the décor. However, there are multiple rugs suitable for a wide range of floors, designs of the living space, and the overall décor of your living space. For this reason, finding the perfect one for your home can be quite challenging. When shopping for rugs, you will want to consider the size that will fit your space.
If you are looking to add different flooring materials in your bathroom, you might be thinking about using tile. While there are a variety of materials that makes excellent tile, ceramic is one of the best ones to use in a bathroom. Here are some reasons to consider this type of tile for your bathroom.
Less Maintenance is Required
A great benefit to choosing ceramic tile in your bathroom is that it is a low-maintenance flooring material.

Tiling is used in all sorts of houses and structures around the world. I find it really intriguing to look at the different effects that you can achieve with the same technique, from simple and modern floors to intricate designs that mimic paintings and other designs. I have taken a selection of photos as I've travelled around the world and found tiling that is beautiful and unique. On this blog I show these pictures of different tiling installation as well as a brief description of where I saw them, the materials used and any information I know about the installation techniques used.
