About Me

creating a kid-friendly basement play space

I wanted to finish my basement in a way that was bright, fun, and easy to keep clean. My plans were to create a space that the kids could do whatever they want in and not cause any permanent damage. I have done all that I can to protect the walls, but was still left with the difficult choice of what to use to cover the concrete floors. Did I want carpeting that would be more comfortable for them to sit on or did I want hardwood floors that would be easier to clean? I went back and forth for a few weeks and finally talked with a flooring professional. So, what did we do? My blog will tell you!


Want To Make A Unique Look In Your Kitchen? Strategize With Tile Flooring Installation

After you have looked at the same kitchen for many years, you may want to make some visual changes. Hiring a kitchen remodeling contractor is one option that can lead to making drastic changes, but you may be perfectly fine with just a simple change that improves the room's look based on personal preference. If you would like to achieve a truly unique look, you can replace the current flooring with tile. Then, to avoid going with a basic tile flooring setup, you need to get a little creative with your decision-making.

Do Not Be Afraid of Irregular Sizing

When you look at most homes with tile flooring, you may notice that the sizing is uniform. This makes it easy to go shopping for tile because you can get pieces that are all the same size. But, this will also contribute to giving your home a standard look when compared to other kitchens. A unique look is easier achieved when you are willing to take on different sizes with tile and fit them together during installation. You can have a flooring contractor handle the shopping around and installation to make it easy for you.

Get Tiles in Various Colors

The uneven sizing is enough for a unique look, but you can take it a step further with a simple decision. Choosing tile in multiple colors will give you uniqueness in both color and size. You can go with a neutral look by choosing variations of black, white, and gray to complete the flooring in your kitchen. It is also possible to go for a standard color and then several pieces of a bold color to act like an accent wall.

Be Creative with Grout

The grout is something that you will need to clean over time. But, you can make this a little easier by choosing grout that does not show dirt and grime easily. This means you will want to prioritize darker colors, but you can also use this as an opportunity to further improve the look of the flooring in a unique way. Although you may only need the grout for installing the tile, there is no reason that you should pass up incorporating the grout that you pick into your flooring design because it can make a huge difference.

Trying out one or all of these ideas will lead to a one-of-a-kind tile flooring installation in your kitchen. Talk with a company like Floor Master Inc for more recommendations.
