Updating tile in your bathroom or kitchen

Posted 21 June 2013 by Team Hudson

Have you recently purchased a house or are you looking to freshen up your existing home?  If so, consider adding tile in the kitchen or bathroom – tile can be a great home renovation project that has a dramatic and lasting effect.

Decorative tile installations allow homeowners to be creative, whether they prefer a subtle, classic look or something more colorful and abstract.  Tile comes in a wide array of materials including porcelain, ceramic, natural stone, marble, mosaic, and more.  The color choices are limitless so there are plenty of options to choose from.

If you would like to improve a property by adding tile, first spend some time looking at photos of kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects (in magazines or online) so you can get a feel for the style and look you prefer.  Looking at spaces that are similar to yours will allow you to see how material selection impacts the end result.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you plan for a tile project:

  • Overall color scheme – consider neutral tile colors, use accessories to add splashes of color
  • Size and layout of the space you will be tiling – decide whether to use large or small tiles
  • Durability – this is especially important if the area has heavy foot traffic
  • Cost of the material and labor to install – ask an experienced tile installer for a detailed estimate
