Tiling from all around the world
When you're looking at timber flooring, one of the first decisions you'll need to make is whether to use a softwood or a hardwood. All trees are split into one of these two categories. Hardwoods do tend to be harder, but the distinction actually relates to seed structure. Hardwood trees have coating around their seeds, while softwood trees do not.
When it comes to flooring, most people assume hardwood timber is the right choice, but that isn't necessarily the case.
Bamboo has quickly emerged as an excellent alternative to hardwood flooring, and it has been praised for its durability, sturdiness, and uniqueness. Bamboo flooring also has a vibrant colour that gives your home an elegant look. However, one of the issues that most people face with this kind of flooring is that the boards start to warp over time. Luckily, there are measures that you can follow right from the installation stage to prevent this problem and extend the durability of your flooring.
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.
