Why Not Tile It?
Posted on 2nd February 2017 at 15:17
Everyone is familiar with tiled bathroom walls and kitchen splashbacks. But tiles are much more versatile than that. Go on holiday to Spain, and you’ll quickly realise that tiles could have a place in every room of your home, and your garden too!
Bathroom floors and kitchen floors immediately come to mind when someone mentions tiles, but how about your hallway? Much can be said for tiling your hallway floor since there’s nothing nicer than to come home to an inviting, welcoming hallway. But hallways are tricky places.
They're often oddly shaped.
They can be dark.
And they catch the brunt of wet clothes, dirty shoes, umbrellas and oodles of knick-knacks.
Grubby, untidy hallways are a bane. And it’s here where a tiled floor can make your life much easier.
Floor tiles are sturdy and durable, which means they can handle a lot of traffic and quite a bit of abuse. They’re also easy to clean. Dust on a dry day and mop to get rid of extra dirt... and your hallway looks clean and inviting in no time flat.
Tiles are great for the style-conscious, too. Tiling your hallway can give you a blank canvas that you can dress up with rugs to change your hallways’ mood. Pastel or neutral-coloured tiles will let you draw attention to your wall colour, hallway furniture, art or floral displays... all without overwhelming what is usually a smallish space.
