As an interior designer, a significant part of my job is to help clients choose the right tiles for their homes. Tiles play a vital role in the overall design of a space, and there are many factors to consider when selecting them.

Here are some of the things that we typically consider when providing interior designer services for tiles:

  1. Purpose: The first thing I consider when selecting tiles is the purpose of the space. For example, if it is a bathroom, I will look for tiles that are water-resistant and slip-resistant, while for a living room, I may consider more decorative options.

  2. Color and Style: The color and style of the tiles can make a big difference in the overall design of the space. I often recommend tiles that complement the color scheme of the room or add a pop of color or pattern to create visual interest.

  3. Texture and Finish: The texture and finish of the tiles can also impact the overall design. For example, a glossy finish may be more appropriate for a modern and sleek space, while a matte finish may work better in a rustic or traditional space.

  4. Durability: The durability of the tiles is an essential factor to consider, especially if they will be installed in high-traffic areas or exposed to moisture. I will recommend tiles that are durable and can withstand wear and tear.

  5. Size and Layout: The size and layout of the tiles are also crucial to consider. Large tiles can make a small space look bigger, while smaller tiles can create a pattern that adds visual interest.

  6. Installation: Lastly, I will consider the installation process and recommend tiles that are easy to install, require less maintenance, and are cost-effective.

In conclusion, selecting the right tiles for a space is essential to create a functional and aesthetically pleasing design. As an interior designer, I consider various factors to help my clients choose the perfect tiles that meet their needs and budget.


Terrazzo Flooring

Complate Project

Before beginning the installation process, it is important to ensure that the surface is clean, dry, and free from any debris. The subfloor should be level and free of any cracks or imperfections that could affect the final result.

The first step in the installation process is to apply a bonding agent to the subfloor. This will help to create a strong bond between the subfloor and the terrazzo mix.

Next, the terrazzo mix is poured onto the subfloor and spread out evenly using a trowel. This mix is typically made up of marble or granite chips, mixed with a cement or epoxy binder. Once the mix is spread out, it is allowed to cure for several days.

After the mix has cured, the surface is ground down using a series of diamond abrasives. This process helps to create a smooth and level surface and also exposes the decorative chips in the mix.

Once the surface has been ground down to the desired level, it is polished using a series of finer diamond abrasives. This process helps to bring out the shine in the terrazzo and creates a smooth and glossy surface.

Finally, any cracks or imperfections in the surface are filled in using a matching epoxy or cement filler.

Overall, the installation of terrazzo flooring is a complex and time-consuming process that requires the skills and experience of a professional flooring contractor. It is important to choose a reputable contractor who has experience with terrazzo flooring to ensure the best results.
