While arranging any space with the use of ceramic tiles, we should choose them so that they fit into the place in the optimal way. However, it rarely happens that we deal with such a perfect match of the interior and ceramics to completely avoid tile cutting. How to ensure that the cut is made with surgical precision, as well as with the greatest benefit for the aesthetics and functionality of the interior? In this article, we will discuss this issue at length.
Ceramic tiles are one of the most grateful materials in the hands of an architect. Thanks to them, it is possible to create functional and beautiful spaces. Like any material, ceramic tiles have their potential and specification. Depending on the technology of manufacturing and the idea of the creator of the design, they have specific properties and the possible applications resulting from them. They also have specific requirements related to their processing and installation.
How to choose the most suitable tiles for a given place? What parameters should be taken into consideration to ensure durability of the cladding and safety for users? How to make a purchase so that the individual tiles fit together perfectly and the assembly can be executed without problems? Today, we will deal exactly with these issues.
Stone and wood are the most primordial matter, serving humanity as a building substance, protection, and also as functional and aesthetic material. Natural stones have an infinite number of shades, varied chemical composition, and physical properties – from soft, absorbent, and porous limestones to hard marbles and granites. How to use the beauty of stone with the simultaneous guarantee of certain desirable properties of usage? You can opt for ceramic collections which faithfully reproduce the appearance of natural stones.
The decision on how to lay ceramic tiles is sometimes as important as choosing their particular pattern since the method of laying them does affect the style and aesthetics of the interior. While the arrangement of “ordinary”, exclusively square tiles of the same size usually does not give rise to many challenges, collections of various formats or non-standard shapes open a real wealth of possibilities before the brave interior designer. Today we will look at interesting combinations of tiles which create a space full of character.
The garage – the pride of the master of the house (sometimes also the lady of the house) and a favourite place of conversation with the familiar enthusiasts of motorisation:)
The garage is both a technical and supporting place. It protects our car against the effects of the unfavourable weather conditions. It saves our time, which we do not have to sacrifice for clearing the snow and scraping the ice from the windscreen. It also provides thermal comfort both in the summer and winter – we do not have to endure the stifling heat before the air-conditioning does its work or freeze until the engine warms up. The garage often has the additional auxiliary functions – for example, it becomes a mini-workshop, a store for sports equipment, tools or tires for a change.
In winter, when snowstorms, freezes, and frost rage outside the window, a warm home is definitely the nicest place. Except from the necessary clearing the paths of snow, we spend little time in other outdoor spaces – for example, terraces. And this is a big mistake because a ceramic or clinker cladding on the outside requires a little bit of attention from us during the coldest months. In this article, we will suggest on what things we should focus and care about in the winter, so that we will enjoy our terrace from spring to autumn for the long, long years.
The mirror belongs to our most faithful friends. It looks at us patiently every day, deepening our happy moments and accompanying us in the more difficult ones. A mirror in the bathroom is one of the most intimate objects which knows many of our secrets. From the arrangement aspect – a mirror is one of the elements strongly affecting the character of the whole bathroom. Its size, shape, colour, frame, the way it is mounted, and the image it reflects act on both our senses and consciousness. Let’s take a look at some of the original ways of using a mirror in the bathroom.
Designing usable spaces – including office ones – is the architect’s bread and butter. How to make modern offices pleasant, comfortable and friendly for both users and their guests? How to ensure office spaces originality and uniqueness, while caring for guidelines coming of regulations? How to guarantee the investor the durability of the proposed solution?
A house, apartment or office can be heated in many ways – various radiators, a fireplace, tiled stove or underfloor heating can be direct heat sources. Each choice comes with some consequences. By installing radiators – you lose some of your free space. By choosing a traditional fireplace – you have to put up with an increased amount of dust and systematic cleaning of the fireplace space.
Floors made of ceramic tiles are suitable for practically any type of room. They are perfect for high-traffic areas such as corridor, kitchen, bathroom or living room. Tiled walls, in turn, are an impressive decoration of the kitchen or bathroom. However, it is important what tiles you choose for a specific place and what will be their parameters. Here are some tips to help you choose the right type of tiles and get to know their parameters.
Tiles boldly enter the living rooms and are very welcome here. Tiled floors can be easily adjusted to fit a room in either a modern, Provençal or rustic style. It all depends on what is the pattern of ceramic tiles. They can represent different types of wood, their exact look and grain. They can also successfully replace natural stone – travertine, granite or marble. They also very closely resemble concrete that is so fashionable recently.
