Tiles are an important investment when refurbishing your home and should be both practical and timeless yet complement your taste and personality. Taking a look at different tiles in person is a great way to gauge what you do and don't like; certain colours, textures and shapes will stand out to you. Taking advantage of a sample service is also a great way to view the tiles in situ; this will help you see what the tiles look like at different times of the day and in both natural and artificial light.
Seeing your favourite tiles en masse can also be very beneficial, especially if you've chosen a bold colour or pattern. This is where a tile visualiser comes in handy, you can simply chose a similar room setting and chose what tiles you want to go where and also narrow down preferred grout colours, there's even a room setting with a fireplace.
Sometimes it can be hard to see what your tiled room will look like ahead of your project, with this in mind we've set up a tile visualiser that allows you to see the difference between bathrooms, kitchens, living areas, indoor/outdoor scenarios and even commercial venues. Within each room type there are several styles to choose from including room sizes, unit types and different style fixtures to suit most tastes and property types.
Decorating your room
Once you've selected a room you can start to decorate it, you can look at wall and floor tiles with the addition of different lay patterns and border tiles and even select an experimental grout colour. Choose from a full wall, half wall or specific areas with the drawing tool; you can paint the remaining walls, and in kitchen settings you can even change the colour of the cabinets and worktops, giving you as full an indication as possible as to how your finished room could look.
Once you've completed each room you can share the results whether by email to your family and friends or on different social media platforms including Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. It's a great way to get people's opinions and even pick up some great suggestions or inspiration for something a little outside of your comfort zone.
