Octagon Bathroom Tile

An octagon bathroom tile is one of the most classic ways to decorate a bathroom floor. Often, the octagons are fitted with contrasting colors, such as black and white. This style is known as “octagon dot” style and can serve as a classy backsplash. This octagon and dot tile has been popular for quite a while and continues to be a trend when it comes to placing smaller tile pieces.

Octagon bathroom tiles are very versatile. They can be pieced together into a mosaic pattern that can cover the entirety of the floor in a simultaneous pattern and go great with multi-colored sinks and walls.

Triangle Tile

While it may seem like a broad category, triangle tile is often the go-to choice for those who want smaller, square-shaped tiles in their homes. By putting two triangle tiles together, one can create a square, with as many colors and designs available as you can think of. There are typically four different shapes of triangle tile: including traditional square-shaped, rectangular-shaped, and smaller versions of the two.

Diamond Tile & Diamond Tile Pattern

Diamond tile is a popular choice for mosaics. While most shapes of diamond tile are available at most hardware stores, you can also find specialty versions of diamond tile that will fit well with any kind of design. This is one of the most popular types of tile available as they can be easily stacked alongside each other to create as little or as big of a space as possible.

A diamond tile pattern is a popular and fairly common type of tile design that provides a geometric layout. By turning standard tiles at a 45-degree angle, one can achieve diamond tile patterns, which is often nice on the eyes when compared to a boring straight-tiled design. Diamond pattern tile is available in many shapes and colors and is often used as a kitchen backsplash or a bathroom floor.

Rhomboid Tile

Rhomboid tile generally consists of a square or diamond-shaped tile pieces put together in a mosaic pattern. They often come in one, two, or three colors together. Many rhomboid styles are made from marble and are packaged together as sheets of a mosaic pattern to be placed on the floor or as a nice backsplash on the wall. They are very popular shapes for the kitchen or the shower. These shapes prove that there is a lot of versatility in keeping things classy.

If you’re looking for a rhomboid tile backsplash, this can add a significant geometric effect to your kitchen or bathroom. The rhomboid mosaic appears almost as if 3D blocks are emerging from the area, allowing the eyes to view something rich and full.

Hexagon Tile & Hexagon Tile Backsplash

Hexagon tiles come in many shapes and sizes. A popular feature includes matte hexagon tiles that are individually small in size, measuring about 2” each. They are pieced together to create a textured flooring or backsplash. It’s another great option for mosaics that adds some diversity in shape and variety to an otherwise geometrically boring room. A hex tile bathroom is one that adds dimension and can also add a touch of color to the washroom.

Hexagon tile backsplashes are popular for kitchens, bathrooms, and even sitting room designs. You can create a variety of hexagon tile backsplash colors, with a variety of different materials available as well. Many backsplashes are made from marble, as it offers a natural variance in color and texture along the wall. Other materials are available as well that include ceramic and porcelain, which can be popular additions to any kind of backsplash. It’s even easy to purchase it in mosaic sheets.

Large Hexagon Tile

A specialty type of hexagon tile, large hexagon tile can measure up to 12” in size. This is one of the most common types of tile options for a bathroom floor, combining a simplistic design with a more complex shape. Hexagon tiles can be mixed and matched to create a mosaic or even a kitchen backsplash. Also known as large hex tiles, they are often smooth and cool with leveled grout for a consistent texture.

The beauty of hex floor tile is that is a creative and often affordable solution to updating an old home to fit the look and style of a new home. It’s unique enough to stand out, yet simple enough to coordinate well with existing colors, patterns, and designs.

Smaller scale ogee drop tiles.  Love how they seem to “sprinkle or scatter” above the range hood.

Elongated Hex Tile

Elongated hex tile adds a stretched hexagon shape pieced together to create a mosaic or a backsplash. This is a great contemporary look that can add dimension and solidity to any room that needs a touch of something special. Elongated hex tile often fits the modern design themes and is sought after for contemporary kitchens and bathrooms. It’s a great way to take the modern and common hexagon tile shape and transform it into a smaller, more vertically-stretched piece.

rabesque Tile & Arabesque Tile Backsplash

Arabesque tile has grown significantly in popularity over the years, and it can add a great deal of artistry and dimension to any bathroom, kitchen, or dining area. The ornate, foliate, tendril-like patterns can be pieced together to form a repeating mosaic of colors and beauty. Anything that intertwines with itself can be considered an arabesque tile, and it is very popular for white or solid colored arabesque tiles to adorn the walls of a kitchen.

Backsplashes are certainly making a comeback, and what better way to enhance and emphasize the classiness of your room than with a solid or neutral-toned arabesque backsplash? Arabesque tile is extremely versatile, and can be played around with until you find something that you love most. With grooves and embossments that make the texture unique, there’s a lot of room for fun while still keeping it traditional.

rabesque Mosaic Tile

Many homeowners wonder if arabesque tile can work in a mosaic pattern. If you are working on an arabesque tile kitchen backsplash, or even some flooring, you can find mosaic sheets of arabesque polished tile in a variety of materials and colors. It is definitely possible, and has seen a rise in popularity over the past couple of years.

Beveled Arabesque Tile

Beveled arabesque takes an already unique edging and curves it upward, adding a 3D effect that many homeowners appreciate. This is a great way to elevate your backsplash or your tile wall and give it just that little pop of vibrancy. Gently beveled edges are the perfect way to add dimension to your tile design without going too overboard.

Lantern Tile

Similar to an ogee tile with hints of arabesque, the lantern tile mimics a very classical “lantern” shape. It can be beveled, similar to an arabesque tile, which gives it a uniqueness in shape and pattern. They are most commonly seen as lantern mosaic tiles, which are sold in sheets. Sometimes, they can come in contrasting colors or textures, adding even more dimension to a room. Lantern shaped tiles are making a comeback, and whether you want a lantern tile backsplash or a full kitchen while, it is definitely a worthwhile investment.

Ogee Tile or “Fish Scale” Tile

Often confused with an arabesque or Moroccan style, the ogee tile (or ogee drop) is a fun geometric shape that is also known as a “fish scale”. You have likely seen this style before in backsplashes, bathrooms, and possibly even colorful restaurants. An ogee itself is an “S-like” curve shape, which has Gothic origins. Ogee tiles can be pieced together in a fish scale row or can be mismatched to face each other or away from each other, creating some very unique and visually stunning styles.

The Best Tile Shapes and Patterns for Your Floors and Kitchens

There are certainly a lot of different tile shapes and patterns to take into consideration when shopping for your next tile floor or backsplash. Choosing the best kind of tile depends on your personal preference, as well as the existing style and aesthetics of the room. For example, you can choose between small mosaic tiles or oversized tiles to make a statement. Do you want porcelain, ceramic, or marble? Do you enjoy textures in your tiles, or do you want it to be as smooth as butter?

The answers to all of these questions can help you narrow down your choices and decide on the best kind of kitchen tile for your bathroom or kitchen. Octagon dot tiles are very popular for bathroom floors, while arabesque and lantern-shaped tiles can make quite the conversational backsplash. Shop around at your local design center to consider the different style, shape, color, and material options you have at your disposal.

A Guide to Buying a Water Dispenser in Singapore

If you are looking to get a water dispenser for your home, chances are you aren’t looking for a machine that just dispenses hot and cold water. You are most probably looking for a device that can also filter out contaminants from the water or better yet, a gadget that can give you supposed additional health benefits.

Design: Mr Designer Studio

Water dispensers with filters do give some of you peace of mind, so we aren’t here to see if their purported benefits hold true or not. This guide instead will look at some of the considerations you should take when buying one. We will also explore a few products and brands available in Singapore so you can get a better idea of where to shop.

Filter types/technologies

Sediment: When looking out for water dispensers, one of the very first things you want to check out are the filters they have. Most are equipped with a variety of filters that serve different functions. The most basic of which is a filter, made from materials like ceramic or polypropylene, that removes suspended particles, rust and other sediments.

Carbon/activated carbon: There are water dispensers that come with carbon and activated carbon filters that remove odours, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as well as chemicals like chlorine through absorption.

Ultrafiltration: This filter removes particles as small as 0.01 micron. It eliminates viruses, bacteria and suspended solids.

Reverse osmosis: Water dispensers with reverse osmosis (RO) filters allow only water molecules to pass through it. They remove contaminants like lead, arsenic, fluoride and nitrates, as well as viruses and bacteria to leave you with a clean, “soft” water. But the downside to RO is that it also removes important minerals along the way.

Nanofiltration: This filter type is similar to RO (although it has slightly larger pores) and can eliminate contaminants as small as 0.001 micron. What’s different is that it allows certain minerals such as calcium and magnesium considered beneficial to us to pass through. It also softens the water like RO.

Alkaline: Water dispensers with alkaline water options claim to balance out the pH levels in your body. Alkaline water typically has a pH of about 8 or 9, which is believed to neutralise the acid waste build-up in our bodies.

The science of this, alas, isn’t definite, and the counter claim is that acid is necessary in our bodies because it helps to aid in digestion, but there are lot of people who do see and feel the benefits of drinking alkaline water, so you will have to decide if it’s something you want in your water dispenser.

Deionisation: Some water dispensers will also provide deionised water that is usually used with a number of other filters. The deionisation process is a chemical purification process to remove ions in the water. It uses ion exchange resins to replace minerals and contaminants such as calcium, magnesium, iron, sodium, chloride, sulfates and nitrates with hydrogen and hydroxide ions that recombine to form water. The result of deionisation is a purer, “softer” form of water with no minerals and salts. As a side note: PUB categorises our water as only “moderately soft”.

UV filter: A UV filter exposes harmful pathogens like bacteria and viruses as well as other living organisms to UV light, killing them. However they do not get filtered out, which is why a water dispenser with a UV filter needs to work with other filters.

For reverse osmosis and alkaline water: Coral Pure Premium 9

There are nine filters in Coral Pure’s Premium 9 water dispenser. These include a reverse osmosis and alkaline filter. To work around the loss of minerals, the dispenser is also able to generate back 72 types of natural minerals including calcium, magnesium and zinc.

Good minerals retained: Livingcare Jewel

Besides the fact that it comes in an array of very pretty colours, including this powder blue, this water dispenser also does a pretty decent job of purifying water. It comes with a carbon block filter that removes chlorine as well as a nano positive filter that eliminates germs, heavy metals, moss all while preserving the good minerals.

Tank or Tank-less?

When buying a water dispenser, consider how much space you would like to set aside on your countertop for it. For smaller homes, new and trendy tank-less options take up significantly less space. In lieu of tanks, they have cooling and heating pipes that provide instant hot and cold water. This does mean that they will need direct piping to a water supply. Tank-less dispensers have less chance of contamination since there isn’t any stagnant body of water for bacteria to grow.

Small, yet stylish: Wells The One

This tank-less, eye-catching water dispenser comes in three hues, white, red and black, and features an ultra-slim design with an 8.8cm diameter so that it doesn’t take up a lot of space on your kitchen countertop. The normal filters remove heavy metals and microorganisms but you can opt for an alkaline filter for alkaline water.

Water dispensers with tanks come with hot and cold water tanks that store water. These are bulkier, but they are also higher capacity and they dispense water at a faster rate compared to tank-less models. Some are installation-free and portable without needing to be connected to a water supply, so you can place them anywhere in the home. The downside to them is that they are constantly using power since the water in the tanks need to be constantly heated to stay hot.

Installation-free: Novita’s Instant Hot Water Dispenser W11

Don’t like the hassle of installation? Consider Novita’s W11, which needs zero installation. It comes up with a 4.6-litre tank and has five temperature settings. Water also gets dispensed really quickly—just one sec for a cup of 90 deg C hot water. It features a 5-stage filtration system, including one that removes heavy metal ions.

Get it here

Temperature and water volume settings

Like having your tea at a specific temperature? Want to ensure your baby formula is at a safe enough temperature for your baby? Need to down a chilled drink after your workout? You will want to go for a water dispenser that has different temperature settings to suit different needs. The more, the merrier, obviously, but you should make sure they have at least hot water, warm water, room temperature water and cold water settings.

Water volume settings are also another bonus feature to look out for. No need to lug out the measuring jugs when you know precisely how much water it dispenses each time depending on the button you press. Convenient if you are making instant teas and coffees or for following recipes.

Clean interface: Purikool’s Puri Jiksoo ODT-004DU Metal Grey

It may not have fancy bells and whistles, but this tank-less water dispenser does the job with four temperature settings (warm, cold, room temperature, hot) and four volume settings (120ml, 250ml, 550ml and infinity). It comes with a 4-stage filter system that removes ultra-small micropores of 0.01 microns.

Get it here

Ice-maker: Ruhens Ice

There are five different temperature controls for this Ruhens water dispenser, including one for making baby formula, one for sterilising kitchen utensils and another for cold-brew teas. What’s really unique about this machine though is that it also has an ice-making feature that makes ice from the filtered water.

Get it here


Consider also the amount of maintenance needed and whether that will be at a level you are comfortable with. Some will require regular servicing, which will incur a charge at your end. What’s more popular nowadays are those with self-cleaning, sterilising functions, so these machines basically clean themselves.

Most will require you to change the filters regularly. How long before you need to change the filters will depend on usage. On average, it’s about six to 12 months. Filter replacement is usually DIY, but you will need to pay for the new filters.

Easy to maintain: Cosmo Quantum

This water dispenser comes with an automatic self-cleaning function that sanitises the machine regularly. Filters are also really easy to replace. All you have to do is pull out the front facade, twist and turn out the old filters, lock in the new ones and place back the cover. This comes with a 6-stage filter system, and you get the choice of opting for an alkaline filter.

Get it here

Complete sterilisation: Chromium Grey Sterra Water Purifier

The nozzles at water dispensers can get icky after a while, which is why Sterra’s water UV-C LED nozzle steriliser that automatically cleans the outlet means there isn’t a need to clean it yourself. Plus, it also has an electric steriliser module that regularly sterilisers the internal water flow path so it’s pretty much hands off for you.

Get it here

Other features to look out for

Child-safety lock: A must if you have young children at home or you are planning to locate your dispenser at an accessible location. You don’t want them fiddling around with the buttons on your water dispenser and accidentally scalding themselves with the hot water.

Price of filters: Besides looking at the price of the machine, you will want to account for the prices of the filters since you are likely replacing them once every 6 months or so.

Energy saving: Water dispensers with tanks tend to continually use power even when you are not using it since they will need to keep the hot water tank warm and ready for use. So it’s best to pay attention to the power usage and whether there is an eco mode.

Tank-less options aren’t as big an issue since they don’t use power when not in use.

Adjustable or removable drip tray: This is not only useful for cleaning, it is also a good-to-have if you want to fill up taller containers or water bottles.

French Country Style, A History

At one point in time, French Country was considered “old school”. And that is perhaps what gives it some of its timeless charm. This design trend started in the Provence countryside, with old French villas and chateaus made of stone. The inside furnishings were exactly what you’d imagine – distressed wood ceilings, brightly-colored decorations, and vibrant wall coatings. The perfect combination of rustic and modern created this sense of chic design that hadn’t been done anywhere else before.

The style actually dates back as far as the 1600s, during the reign of Louis XIV. When he renovated the Palace of Versailles, he made it one of the first large-scale buildings to boast the French Country style. At the time, this was considered the height of luxuriousness and wealth, making people across all nations jealous of the fabulous style.

Over the years, the style evolved into something that citizens in simple country homes could adopt. It soon became a symbol of the elegant and rustic French countryside. People wanted to imitate the style of richness and elegance brought on by the palaces in Paris, but put to practical and affordable use. That is where the modern Country French dining room style began. As a result, the world has adopted the style to reflect both elegance and frugality, with a warm blend of rustic nature that appeals to many modern homeowners.

Things That Set A Country French Dining Room Apart

There are a few key elements that make a Country French dining room unique. There are times where it may get mistaken for a similar style—French Rococo, for example—but understanding the features that make it special can help you distinguish it from the rest.

These include:

Natural colors. The French countryside inspires this design, so naturally, many colors reflect neutral browns, bright yellows, rusty reds, and soft whites. Sebring Tip: If your dining room is on the smaller side, opt for more brilliant colors. If your dining room is large, you can introduce darker earth tones.Natural materials. Surfaces and flooring should also be inspired by nature. Also, French Country dining rooms use plenty of light-colored wood and timbers for ceilings and floors. This style also makes use of stone.French Country dining room furniture is unique to its style. Moreover, the table and chairs can genuinely make or break the whole scene. Furniture made from reclaimed wood is a popular choice. Farmhouse-style is ideal for bringing your Country French dining room to life. Furniture should also be functional; for example, large cupboards or sideboards with storage space are worth considering.Soft patterns. French Country dining rooms are not shy of decoration or style. It’s common to find a space in this style with animal-print styles or floral decorations.

Many other elements make up a French Country style. From adding warm and gentle furnishings to filling the room with accessories, you can create a look that makes your dining room look “lived-in.” Natural light, earth tones, and rustic furniture are priorities to consider when transforming your living space.

Decorating Ideas For Country French Dining Rooms

The above elements can be expressed in many ways to create the traditional Country French dining room style. Take a look at the following images, each highlighting a different feature that makes this style so warm and familiar – without sacrificing its uniqueness.

Opposites Attract

Remember that the key to defining a French Country style is with the peaceful marriage of sophisticated and rustic. Combining these elements can be done the right way. Your French Country dining room table and chairs are simple, made of solid or reclaimed wood, in an authentic farmhouse style. This leaves the sophisticated elements to the decor. Add fanciness with the drape patterns, chair cushions, or kitchenware.

Lots Of Toile

Toile is known as a French cloth used for decorating. While it literally means “cloth” in French, it also describes a fabric typically in beige or white background and covered in a repeating pattern. The pattern can be in many shapes or styles but most often depicts nature scenes (trees, animals, or farmers). Having this kind of pattern for your French Country dining room furniture can add credit to its value.

Make A Lot Out Of Your Lighting

Keeping things simple at eye level is a good idea. That allows you to add more of a sophisticated twist to the upper levels of the dining room. A hanging, antique-style lantern in your dining room can completely set the mood of the whole room. Make it a truly eye-catching piece with bright colors and fancy framing. This will look especially good against the simplistic backdrop of exposed beam ceilings or reclaimed wood chairs.

Thick Beams and Wooden Accents

Speaking of exposed beams, this is one of the most famous architectural elements of a French Country dining room. Using distressed wood for the ceiling beams can give your home an antique look, immediately adding to its value. This also adds a touch of charm to a room that instantly makes it more inviting. A style like this can be accented well with stone flag flooring. Your rustic French Country dining room sets are what blend everything together in this chic yet savvy look.

Add A Real Rustic Touch

It’s one thing to make some of the elements of your dining room look rustic, but it may be of use to incorporate actual antique pieces into your room. For example, antique farm tools, kitchen utensils, or silverware can look good displayed on the wall. Put a vintage vase out as the centerpiece on your French Country dining room table to show that you want nothing less than the real deal.

Use Ornate Colors

The French Country style is all about using natural colors…but it’s also about being elegant and inspiring a scene from French royalty. Use ornate colors like gold and silver – but especially gold – as an accent for some of the decorative items in your room. Gold drapes, gold drawer handles, or a duvet color made from gold fabric can make you feel Parisian and chic.

Use Motifs

Perhaps one of the most famous historical elements of the French Country style is its motifs on the window panels. Adding motifs to any wooden framing or molding is a creative way to turn something regular into something unique. Inspire fanciness with traditional French motifs on your windows. Your window treatments should be one of the more elaborate elements of your French Country dining room, as you want it to stand out.

Make A Statement With Old And New

Again, it’s important to incorporate both elaborate and simplistic pieces into your dining room. When you are finished with your design, it should look like you sourced your French Country dining room sets from an upscale antique store or a quality flea market shopping spree. The perfect combination of high-end and homemade, of ultra-modern and antique, of calm and noisy, is what gives this style its own definition.

Don’t Let the Patterns Overwhelm

It’s all too easy to get carried away with the diverse and multi-colored fabric patterns that the French Country dining room furniture style typically has to offer. And while almost any fabric pattern choice will help improve the look of your dining room, it’s essential not to use it too much. Adding just a little bit of something fancy and colorful—like toile fabric upholstered on the chairs, for example—can go a long way. It shouldn’t be so much that it becomes the entire focal point of the room. Leave that to your excellent dining set or your natural exposed beams!

Add Lots of Artwork

If it’s one thing the French Country style loves to do, it’s decorating the walls. Harkening back to the times of Louis XIV and the Palace of Versailles, one way to express the status of wealth was by hanging plenty of artwork on the walls. You can even imitate the style of the olden days by framing your portraits and paintings in large, gold-gilded wooden frames. Not only does it enrich the room, but it also gives it dimension.

Don’t Forget the Little Details

You can make something fancy out of even the most ordinary things. Adding those little details to the room can really bring it to life, giving it a warm and familial characteristic. Rustic decor pieces like an old wine rack are a unique focal point and a convenient storage space for your everyday items. Keep the furniture vintage, but you can marry rusticism with modernity with colorful seat upholstery. Think about what kind of light you want hanging above the table or what your centerpiece will look like. Use these little things as opportunities to add the vintage and rustic touches without making the room lose its poise.

Dark and Light

Bright colors in small rooms and dark colors in big rooms go a long way. But no matter what size your dining room is, you can add something both bright and vibrant. Dark-colored flooring goes great with white walls, white ceiling lights, and white French Country dining room sets. And vice versa; dark chandeliers, rich wood-colored furniture, and light floors with light-colored beams atop can make the room stand out.

Keep Things Symmetrical

It’s okay for the French Country to look a little asymmetrical at times, as this is part of its charm. But in some cases, and especially for large dining rooms, it might be wise to be symmetrical. The best way to keep the room in balance is to keep some of the focal points lined up. This can mean lining up your lanterns directly over the table, securing your rug in the middle of the room, or ensuring that there are an equal amount of decorations on each side of the room. While it doesn’t need to look so straight to the point of being static (you still want the room to look lived-in!), it can keep the eyes from getting too overwhelmed when entering such a bright and dynamic room.

Consider French Country In Your Kitchen!

French Country is a timeless style that will never steer you wrong. If you are considering remodeling your dining room, you can learn more about how the French Country style can work with you. If you have a taste for the eclectic, and you want to invite some warmth and comfort to your home, this may be a good style to consider.

The dining room is a big part of the home remodeling process. If you are a homeowner who’s planning on a renovation project, make sure you are prepared before starting the next big task. You can design, build, and remodel your home in a design that will compliment your personal tastes and add overall value to your home.

34 Teen Bedroom Ideas

Featured Image Source: Sherwin-Williams

If you need teen bedroom ideas, consider what your teenager likes and imagine their room through their point of view. You should keep in mind that a teenager has a different perspective on a room than a grown-up. Aside from having a place to sleep, a teenage bedroom is the place a teenager hides from the world of rules and standards.

There are not many spots where a teen can express themselves shamelessly. The bedroom is the best option. When you are a teenager, you think that anything is possible. Their preferred things are diverse and sometimes conflicting. However, with some arranging, all thoughts can integrate perfectly.

Who wouldn’t adore this classy, trendy, and comfortable bedroom?

When conceptualizing teen bedroom ideas, the most significant thing to consider is that their room is a statement of who they are.

Most teens are design-conscious and updated with the most recent trends and patterns. In any case, they’re conflicted between childhood and adulthood. Teenagers usually have adored toys they’re not prepared to let go. Notwithstanding, they also search for a room that is more established and more trendy than their childhood room.

An adolescent will appreciate a way to deal with their room as their small, independent “apartment” where they can spend the greater part of their time serenely. Notwithstanding size, a teenager’s room should be adaptable enough for them to spread out and complete schoolwork, hang with friends, rest, and sleep, all while mirroring their personality.

Aside from looking incredible, teen bedroom ideas ought to incorporate capacities explicit to their age. While grown-ups favor a space that is quiet and downplayed, adolescents acknowledge energetic, high vitality rooms.

Critical Points For Epic Teen Bedroom Ideas

Your teen’s room might be among the hardest places in the house to structure. For instance, it needs to highlight their style and interests while still fitting in with the remainder of the house. You need to ensure it develops with them through the valuable years remaining at home. Also, you need to get yourself prepared when they request something like black walls. Avoid any possible contentions by looking at these teen bedroom ideas.

First is, the storage space. For small teen bedroom decor ideas, it is important that you give priority to storage space if you don’t want your teen’s stuff to be all around. Therefore, teen bedroom ideas for small rooms usually include double-deck beds or beds that have storage space underneath. Furthermore, installing shelves and racks is also excellent for small teen bedroom ideas. Ultimately, smart storage solutions are top on the list for teen bedroom ideas for small rooms.

Secondly, you need to give them privacy. If the room is huge enough, put a little seat by the window or in the corner, so your teenager has someplace private to unwind and hang out. Additionally, have fun decorating with things like headboards, upholstery, and curtains. Also, wallpaper is another simple method to acquire color and a fun print. Settle on the removable kind or pick a lasting one that you both love.

Next, you also have to consider their hobbies. Teen girl bedroom ideas can have musical notes or dance-inspired theme. On the other hand, teen boy bedroom ideas can include skateboard, basketball, or guitars. Furthermore, teen boys bedroom ideas can be more sporty and rugged, while teen girls bedroom ideas can be more warm and dainty. Of course, your teenager’s personality is a huge factor in looking for teen bedroom decorating ideas.

Budget Tips For Renovating Teen’s Bedroom

Read any teen decorating catalog and you may immediately be overpowered with its glossy pictures of teen bedrooms that have been decorated with designer home products. Numerous magazines and design shows give the idea that you need countless dollars worth of furniture and decor to enhance your young teen’s room.

On the other hand, some parents don’t have the budget to beautify their teenager’s room extravagantly. Nor should you spend your hard-earned money on furniture, decor, and bedding that has small, long-lasting value and inflated markups. Truly, you can make a spectacular space for your teenager without getting broke all the while – or even without spending a lot of cash at all.

Firstly, you can save money by sticking to the basics. Not all teens need bright colors and kitschy posters overwhelming in their rooms. For teen girls bedroom ideas, something basic and sweet is already enough.

If case you invest in timeless pieces, you’ll have the option to repurpose them over and over, breathing new life and character into them each time. For instance, a great bed frame could suit a younger child too. It only takes a little innovativeness and swapping out highlight pieces and bedding that feel age-appropriate. Finally, when they grow up and need a space that feels grown-up, you can style their bedroom in another manner.

Designing Teen Bedroom Ideas

If you’re looking for teenage bedroom ideas, think about what your teenager enjoys and attempt to envision their space through their eyes. It is much more than just a place to sleep. Your teen’s bedroom is where they can get away from the world of adult demands and regulations. There are just a few locations where an adolescent may fully express themselves, and the bedroom is generally one of them.

Consider trendy bedroom ideas and your teenager’s own style while constructing a teen bedroom. Fun wallpaper and practical furniture are two examples of charming room ideas. Please discuss with your teen how you can allow them to express themselves and have fun in their room.

Teen bedroom designs should reflect their personality.

Teenagers today are fashion-conscious and up to date on the newest trends. They are, nevertheless, divided between childhood and maturity. Most teenagers have treasured toys that they cannot part with, so they search for an older and more sophisticated room than their childhood room.  A teenager will love seeing their room as a tiny, self-contained apartment where they may spend the majority of their time comfortably.

A teen’s bedroom, regardless of size, must be adaptable enough for them to stretch out and complete homework, hang out with friends, lounge, and sleep, all while representing their personality. Teen bedroom designs should contain age-appropriate functions as well as a consistent appearance. While adults enjoy a peaceful and modest environment, teens generally choose colorful, high-energy spaces.

Create a multi-purpose space that is both useful and attractive.

A teenager’s room is more than simply a place to sleep. Having a space where kids can hang out, study, and lounge with friends is almost as essential as sleep when they begin to explore their independence. And the social component of teen room design is important. According to a poll of worldwide teens, the most essential item a teenager would add to their room is a picture of themselves with their friends. Collaborate with your teenager to incorporate the following areas into their room in a unique way:

A comfortable sleeping areaPersonalized study spaceA place to hang together with pals

If your teen’s bedroom is small, think outside the box to satisfy their multi-purpose room demands.

The Psychology Of The Color Green

According to color psychology, different colors can bring out psychological responses. For instance, color is frequently thought to have an effect on temperaments and feelings. In some cases, these responses are related to the intensity of a color, whereas in other cases, they are the product of encounter and social influences.

How does the color green affect your feelings? For many individuals, it has solid affiliations with nature and instantly brings to mind the lavish green of the grass, trees, and timberlands. Perhaps since green intensely relate to nature, it is frequently portrayed as a reviving and peaceful color.

In color psychology, green can mean nature and money. Growth, fertility, wellbeing, and generosity are a few of the positive color meanings for green. This is the reason why you will find most health and wellness stores carry the green color in their logo or stores.

A few students may discover that laying a transparent sheet of green paper over reading material increases reading speed and comprehension.

Green has long been an image of fertility and was once the preferred color choice for wedding outfits within the 15th-century. Even nowadays, green M & M’s (the chocolate candy) are said to send a sexual message. Most people use green in decorating for its calming impact. For instance, visitors waiting to be seen on tv programs regularly wait in a “green room” to relax.

Why Green Kitchen Cabinets Are The Way To Go

Green Is Calming

The color green has a calming effect. If you need to concentrate or focus on getting something done, consider having something green nearby.

Dark greens are soothing. I remember whenever I was feeling anxious or extremely nervous, I would go to my dark green office, and that made me feel more relaxed. Perhaps this is the reason why they have green rooms in entertainment production—to help actors relax and compose themselves before a show.

Green Is Exciting

While others see green as a relaxing color, some say it provides them with a feeling of excitement. This might be particularly true with bright shades of green. A vibrant green appears to be energetic and motivating. In some cases, it can give you an endorphin rush.

Green Radiates Compassion

When you see someone that wears green, it is automatic to feel that the person is helpful, kind, sympathetic, and caring. It is a color that reflects compassion.

Green Is Optimistic

Green, which is highly associated with nature, can evoke new beginnings. Just imagine green grass sprouting on the yard. It suddenly gives you the motivation to have a new goal or start over on something important. It helps you to be positive and hopeful.

How To Decorate With Green Color In The Kitchen

Many see a decor palette focusing on green to be one of the most relaxing color schemes since it brings in shades of nature. There are more shades of green than you can ever imagine. This will make decorating with green basic, but the color can overpower a space immediately. If your kitchen’s primary color scheme is green, there are lots of ways to beautify it with it while still incorporating other colors.

Counter Tops

For your kitchen counters, choose a shade of green that either includes other colors as highlights or has an undertone of another color. This could mean employing a granite that has shades of yellow and blue or applying a laminate with tones of salmon and red. These undertones can be utilized as highlight colors within the kitchen as well; pull them for wall craftsmanship, hand towels, toss mats, and backsplash accent tiles.

Belle Hampton Properties

These kitchen cabinets are a little bit bold, and yet the overall look stays classy, fresh, and organized. We love how the color green stands out. It is also genius to place lower white kitchen cabinets to balance things out.

Wall Color

Having green to paint the kitchen walls immediately makes it the main color. Keep the tone one to two shades lighter than the darkest shades of green within the room, such as a counter top’s color. To ensure the green wall color doesn’t rule the space, keep the cabinet color exceptionally light. White or cream cabinets will look very fresh against a green wall and will help keep the room light. For contrast, include a dark wood island within the center of the room away from the green walls.

Accent Colors

Aside from pulling accents from a secondary source, such as a counter, you’ll be able to choose an accent color from the shade of green you employ. Since green could be a secondary color made by combining blue and yellow, most shades contain marginally more of one of these two colors as an undertone. Utilize this to decide your highlight colors. For instance, olive green encompasses a yellow undertone. Incorporate a gold-toned wood table within the room and utilize placemats of sunny yellow on it to drag out the lighter tones of the olive green.


Fontana Art & Design

Stay classy with this shade of green. This kitchen is an extension of nature, but inside your home.

My jaw dropped when I saw these beautiful dark green kitchen cabinets. The paint is Benjamin Moore Hunter Green 2031-10 in gloss.

Working With Green Kitchen Cabinets

A great way to make green the primary color of the kitchen is to put it not on the counters or walls, but on the cabinets. You’ll do this utilizing a few strategies. Use a light yellow-green on the main cabinets and a more deep green on the kitchen island, or use a mint green on all the cabinets within the room. In case you are doing this, keep the wall in a light color. White, cream, and taupe go well on walls against green cabinets. Select either a darker green counter in a tone that matches the cabinets, or do something exciting on the counters instead, such as light marble.

Green could be a very fresh and stimulating color, and these properties apply to pretty much all the different subtleties derived from it. Green is a color well-suited for the kitchen for lots of reasons, the most vital one of all being that it makes sense and it looks great. Typically, there are numerous distinctive design methodologies which can spin around green kitchen cabinets, counters, walls, etc. The cool part is that green look pleasant when matched, with pretty much any other color, particularly those commonly found in nature.

Utilize green in combination with warm woods for a look explicitly inspired by nature. For example, the fronts of the cabinets can be green while the rest of their bodies contains a wooden finish.A lighter shade of green can be well-suited for a beach-style kitchen. Go for mint green kitchen cabinets combined with wooden or white countertops and a subway tile backsplash for a retro-chic feel.

In the event of an open floor plan where the kitchen and living or dining room are directly associated, there needs to be a wonderful and consistent transition between them, and that’s where the kitchen island comes into play. A green island which matches the color of the kitchen cabinets can be combined with a green ceiling or highlight divider within the kitchen or with other coordinating design components such as the curtains or the area carpet.

It’s also imperative to discover the proper shade of green, the one which goes best with the style that you have in mind. Bright and bold colors often go well with more modern or contemporary stylistic layouts whereas muted and more neutral tones are well-suited for conventional or retro designs.

27 Inset Cabinets & All You Need To Know About Them

Featured Image: Kitchen Design Concepts

Inset Vs. Overlay Cabinets

Inset cabinets may be a new phrase around the house, but in reality they are far from young. In fact, these utilitarian cabinet styles have been making a comeback from hundreds of years ago. Popular in the Victorian and Georgian eras, inset cabinets provide plenty of design and functional advantages. They can be a great way to accent the look of your kitchen without sacrificing any cabinet or storage space.

On top of that, they’re also ultra stylish, proving once again that sometimes simpler is better. Whether or not you choose to add a variety of embellishments or mouldings, your inset cabinets really do have a personality of their own. Make it the next big conversation at the dinner table when your family and guests arrive to look at your newly refurbished kitchen. Inset cabinets will certainly spark some talk, and you’ll be glad that your kitchen’s style is finally cohesive!

Determining what makes an inset cabinet is the key to figuring out what sets them apart from others in their class. Finding out if inset cabinets are right for you can be a journey through your stylistic, budgetary, and design preferences. In today’s current remodeling world, many homeowners are switching back to the inset cabinets like ones seen in the past. It offers a unique sense of heritage and ancestry that can keep you connected to the old days, while offering a surprisingly refreshing look to an otherwise bleak kitchen.

Inset Vs. Overlay Cabinets

Understanding inset cabinets is easier when they are compared to overlay cabinets. While looking at inset vs. overlay cabinets, you can easily start to notice some key differences.

Inset cabinets have the following features:

Drawers and doors that fit inside of the cabinet frame, rather than sticking out of it.Gives a complete view of the cabinet frame, allowing you to see the full scope of the framework without too many gaps or separations.

When it comes to an inset cabinet, you can run your hand along the surface of the cabinet and you would not feel a protrusion or a noticeable difference between the frame and the cabinets. It will all look and feel like one flat piece. This is the direct opposite of overlay cabinets, which can give you an idea of what those might look like.

Overlay cabinets, on the other hand, provide the opposite effect. Overlay cabinets contain some features such as:

Opposite to inset cabinets, overlay cabinets will layer the cabinet doors on top of the frames, with just a little bit of the frame showing through.The amount of overlay can vary to determine the size of the hinges or the overall style of the cabinet.

If the cabinet doors pop out from the frame, it is likely that you have an overlay cabinet. There are also partial overlay and partial inset cabinets, giving you a little taste of everything to better enhance your particular style. Depending on your style and budget preference, there are a variety of different inset cabinet styles to look at that might give you a clearer idea of what you want for your next remodeling goal. If you’ve never tried out inset cabinets before, now might be the perfect time to get started!

The Benefits of Inset Kitchen Cabinets

Inset kitchen cabinets are very beneficial for a variety of different reasons. Whether you are looking for something to streamline your style or buffer your budgeting needs for renovation, there are a lot of ways that inset kitchen cabinets can help.

For example, inset cabinets can be personalized to match the rest of your kitchen. You can use different types of inserts (beaded, or non-beaded) to determine how exactly the cabinet will be set inside of your frame. Usually, your cabinet will be custom made to design not only your frame, but the rest of your kitchen as well.

You can also add more customizations and modifications to your cabinet. This includes adding a wide range of coloring and finishing options, as well as mouldings, to create something that is truly unique and reflective of the characteristics of your home.

Another reason for having an inset cabinet is that it just plain looks good. People who get beaded or non-beaded inserts really enjoy the variety of ways that their cabinets can be made to look noticeably improved. Plus, they do save a lot of space – even that few inches that would be spent extending an overlay cabinet can really make a difference and make your kitchen feel like a brand new room.

Inset Door Cabinets

The door of the cabinet is of particular interest when planning for inset cabinetry. Inset doors come from traditional English styles, and there is a bit of poise and history to the art of inset door cabinets. They can be made to sit exactly within the frame, appearing to be one singular flat surface.

These cabinets are the way to go if you are interested in a full view of your cabinet frame. It can offer a lot of spacing between each cabinet, without actually sacrificing the amount of storage space you have inside. This type of cabinetry is flush against the frame, filled with features that can completely transform the kitchen as you know it.

And no, it doesn’t stop there; they can work to complement the rest of your home by giving that look of sleekness and modernity. That’s right; even though they’ve been popular home additions for centuries, there is something surprisingly modern about the way inset cabinets look!

Inset Shaker Cabinets

Inset shaker cabinets are handcrafted for timelessness. They combine historical and contemporary styles by offering flat panels to align perfectly flush within the frame. There is no bevel on the frame either, so you know you are getting a straight fit. They have five-piece doors as their most distinctive feature, with a bit of decorative crown moulding around it. These five-piece doors can either come with five-piece drawers, slab drawers, or partial overlay drawers. The name comes from the religious community in the United States, the Shakers, who took a lot of pride in their value of simple things. It’s a classic and elegant design!

Mission-Style Cabinets

Mission-style cabinets are another distinctive style that was born out of the Arts and Crafts style, in combination with the Spanish Mission styles. It is another simplistic style, just like the Shakers, but with more angular shapes. The fixtures attached to the drawers are elegant yet unadorned, creating beauty out of something common. You can add a simple stain or something like a custom finish to accent the lighter or darker hues around the kitchen.

Raised Panel Cabinets

Although not technically full inset cabinets, raised panels offer just a touch of dimension — which is perfect if you’re looking to get the best of both worlds. With most raised panel cabinets, the cabinet doors have a panel that is raised a little bit higher than the frame surrounding it. You can add squared or arched edges for something different, which adds a little extra to your design enjoyment. A panel goes inside of the already-cut grooves to create this three-dimensional look. Another great reason to invest in raised panel cabinets is to incorporate them as a part of your kitchen fixtures, so you can easily hide appliances or other machines behind it. That way, your kitchen will remain sleek and smooth with an un-cluttered facade.

There are several more exciting inset cabinet styles to discover. If you are interested in this style for your next remodeling project, you can easily browse your selections online to see what kind of ideas and inspirations strike your fancy.

Which Cabinet Will You Pick?

From insets to overlays, it’s easy to see why a homeowner would want the best of both worlds. If you are looking for something traditional and dimensional, overlay cabinets may be your best friend. But if you want something that will really turn the design of your kitchen around, through smoothness and a flattened appearance, you might want to give inset cabinets a try. Although their rising rate of popularity would imply that they are the new fad, they have actually been around since the 1700s in traditional colonial and Victorian homes. Not only are they major space savers, but they offer a beautiful and elegant look that you may never have been able to achieve before with your more standard overlay cabinets.

Kitchen remodeling is one of the most exciting projects to invest in, especially if you are a new homeowner. If you have a clear style and price set in mind, you can determine whether inset cabinets are in your future. If you need further assistance, a remodeling specialist can help you make the most informed choices.

What is a Waterfall Edge Countertop?

As the name implies, these countertops provide a unique edging look that, rather than just ending in a horizontal shape. It flows right over the sides of the edges, making it look more like a vertical plane of stone, granite, or quartz, rather than a hard edge that completely cuts off the top. This gives it a natural, endless, and infinite look, resembling water that flows smoothly over a rock face and down into the massive body of water below.

They are an homage to the beauty of nature, describing a seamless transition between the countertops and the floor. They are a great finishing piece for islands or for fixed kitchen countertops. Not only are they visually appealing, but they offer a lot of functionality and utility too!

Waterfall Edge Countertop Pros and Cons

When investing in a waterfall edge countertop, it’s important to consider the ways it works best for your kitchen – and the ways it doesn’t. Instead of worrying about the remodeling process as a whole, think about the countertops as one very important piece of the larger puzzle. And in truth, the countertops are a huge focal point of your kitchen, so you’ll want to be extra certain that you know exactly how they are going to tie into the overall design and theme of your home.

Homeowners have highlighted some of the biggest likes and dislikes over these peculiar countertops. We would like to share them with you now to help your decision-making process a bit easier. Here’s what other remodelers and home decorators have to say:

The Pros

They are a unique way to stray away from the traditional hard-edge design by offering something that fits a modern and contemporary look.There is a wide array of materials that can be used to make waterfall edge countertops, such as granite, quartz, or composite materials.They offer a clever way of hiding storage space, electrical outlets, and other appliances without having to invest in extra cabinet or door space.They create a seamless transition between the counters or islands and the floor, making the kitchen function as one cohesive piece.

The Cons

They require a bit more material than traditional countertops in order to be constructed.Since they offer luxury appeal, they often come at luxury prices, mostly due to the extra materials required.They may not match the design or decor of your home if you do not like a modern style.

The biggest drawback involves price, which may not be an issue for you if you are ready to invest in a big budget for your remodeling project. However, there are plenty of ways to make the waterfall edge countertop style affordable. Looking at some of the materials and media options below, you can easily determine what look and style works best for you.

Best Materials for a Waterfall Edge Countertop

You can build a waterfall edge granite countertop as easily as you can a quartz one. The general consensus is that quartz and natural stone products are the best materials for a waterfall edge countertop. Since the edge will be smoothed and will run over the cabinet and counter box, you naturally want something smooth yet sturdy such as a stone.

Stone is one of the most versatile products available for kitchen remodeling, as it is often highly sought after for countertops, tiles, backsplashes, and more. Plus, bringing natural stone into your home is a great way to harmonize your home with the world around you.

If money isn’t an issue for your remodeling project, you can also consider marble or even Corian as options for your waterfall edge countertops. However, quartz is one of the stronger options, as it is non-porous, and it cannot crack. Just consider how often you use your countertops, and what you use them for. If you expect them to sustain heavy usage, consider quartz or granite over marble. Ultimately, it’s up to you!

Waterfall Edge Countertop Styles

The style and color of your waterfall edge countertop is largely determined by what materials you use. It also depends on what type of design you are trying to achieve. While these specific countertop edges are largely considered to be modern and contemporary, you can always add your own element of design by combining elements from other trends that you enjoy.

In most cases, you are looking at an extremely smooth surface that pours over the edge of your counters. This is achieved by the sleekness of natural stone or other composite materials. What kind of finish you apply to the countertops can drastically change its look as well. The waterfall effect is achieved by adding an additional slab on top of the edges of your already-existing countertops. Therefore, you can work within these definitions to come up with something that best matches your preferences.

Word on Waterfall Edge Countertop Islands

While waterfall edge countertops can be used on any countertop throughout your home, the best place to really show them off is on your kitchen island. The reason they are preferred for islands is due to their ability to be a waterfall on all sides, rather than just on a single edge or corner.

In some cases, it is also easier to attach the slab of waterfall stone to the cabinet box as a whole unit, rather than trying to attach it against the wall on one side. The decision is ultimately yours, but most examples of waterfall edges pertain to kitchen islands to really create a strong focal point in your room. Not only is it easier to install, but it is also much more visually stunning to look at!

How Waterfall Edge Countertops are Installed

During the installation process, you can expect only the highest in quality materials and labor. Waterfall countertop edges are coveted not only for their visual appeal, but for the precision required in their craftsmanship as well. There’s a trick to cutting it the right way, while also making sure that the strength of the stone slab is kept intact.

It is of utmost importance that you hire a professional for this project. For more insights and information on how to properly plan for your waterfall edge countertop installation, you can check out our free homeowner’s guide, Remodeling 101, before making your final decisions on your own project. Only the best in skilled labor will be able to help you achieve this highly modernized look.

With most remodeling projects, you want to be able to rely on good materials and even better labor. However, for something as specialized as a waterfall edge countertop, it’s imperative that you also hire someone with expertise. If your go-to contractor has never installed waterfall countertop edges before, you may not be satisfied with the resulting job. By investing your time and resources into a trusted professional who can describe the installation process perfectly, you have a great chance of loving your finished look.

The installation process takes the following into consideration:

Countertop material and designNumber of stone slabs requiredSize of slabsThickness of island edgesType of design or style desired

All of this will help you determine your cost and the amount of time it will take to get them installed. Remember that you can invest in trusted remodeling advisors before moving forward with your next big project.

Featured Image Source: Julian Tile – VQL Glazed Rectified Porcelain Tile

Marble is a stunning tile and flooring option that offers peak sophistication to any part of the home. Tile that looks like marble is more affordable and can be found in a variety of specialty and hardware stores, with a wide range of colors and patterns to choose from.

For thousands of years, marble has been sought-after as one of the most popular and most heavily desired materials to build with. From the era of Ancient Greece to modern times, marble is a timeless look that can decorate floors, counter tops, bathrooms, kitchens, stairs, and more. But some marble options can fall outside of the average price range. When marble is too expensive, or if there isn’t any available, what can be done to imitate this beautiful and stunning look? Fortunately, there is a way to achieve the smooth marble look with alternative materials like ceramic and porcelain. Porcelain tile can be cut and finished to look as real and as sophisticated as real marble stone.

Make sure to take some time to check out all of the available tile options that look like marble.  Faux tile is flexible, versatile, beautiful, and affordable for all of your home decor or remodeling needs.

Ceramic Marble Tile

Ceramic marble tile is another popular and healthy alternative to real marble. It is also an alternative to porcelain, which is the more common material used to make faux marble flooring and tiles.

Ceramic and porcelain marble tiles both have their advantages and disadvantages based on what you are looking for in your home. Some may even try to argue that ceramic and porcelain are essentially the same and that you will get the same look and value out of either, regardless of what you pay for. However, most will argue in favor of porcelain over ceramic. They are both viable options that are worth looking at, though.

Pros of Ceramic Tile

There are several advantages of ceramic marble look tiles, including:

Works for hotter temperatures, making it a good choice for desert homesCeramic is more lightweight than porcelainOften cheaper than porcelainCeramic is easier to cut for those who want to make DIY tiles for their homes

Cons of Ceramic Tile

Ceramic is porous and more water-absorbent than porcelainCannot withstand heavy useCeramic is not recommended for installation outside

Ceramic tile is typically not as sought-after as porcelain tile, although they are both available on the market for a variety of different marble-like tiles. Keep in mind that both porcelain and ceramic count as “ceramic” materials; they are created with clay and fired in similar ways.

Whether you decide to use ceramic or porcelain, you will find a wide variety of faux marble options that might meet your aesthetic and financial preferences.

What Are The Advantages & Disadvantages Of Marble Look Tiles Flooring?

The Advantages Of Marble Effect Tile Flooring

1. It is simple to clean. The surface has a unique coating that makes it extremely thick. Ordinary pollution may be cleansed with clean water, whereas severe pollution can be removed using a neutral detergent.

2. Lightweight. Because the product density is low, it is lighter, which helps to reduce the building load.

3. Excellent water resistance. Because the water absorption is low, the waterproof performance is excellent, and it may be utilized in damp environments.

4. Non-combustible substance.  It is a type of product that may be used as a fire-proof material and is ideal for decorating in areas where fire-proofing is restricted.

5. Chemical resistance. It can effectively resist acid, alkali, and other drugs from corroding, so even if chemicals fall on the tiles, there’s no need to worry about the marble tiles corroding.

6. It is long-lasting. Inorganic base material with a long service life may prevent insect, ant, and corrosion.

7. There is no dust. The surface’s unique coating is thick, smooth, and dust-free, and dust does not readily adhere to it.

8. Dimensional stability. The coefficient of thermal expansion & contraction is modest and does not vary with temperature.

9. Antibacterial. The surface is smooth and antibacterially coated; germs cannot easily multiply, and antibacterial efficacy is excellent.

10. It is simple to process. The procedure is straightforward, and the ceramic/porcelain marble tile may be worked with standard equipment.

11. Environmental and energy conservation. It can not only preserve nature’s finite material energy but also minimize construction energy use.

12. UV resistance. The marble ceramic tile has an inorganic and fluorocarbon coating, which significantly increases the coating’s UV resistance.

The Drawbacks of Marble Look Flooring

1. Because of its high radioactivity, it feels chilly and cool when walked on barefoot.

2. It’s tough yet not elastic enough. It is not permitted to construct more than a 1-meter tabletop. When something is damaged, it isn’t easy to fix.

3. It’s easy to stain.

What Is the Difference Between Marble & Marble Look Tiles?

Marble effect floor tiles are less harmful to the environment.

The marble look tile does not have the radioactive contamination of natural stone and does not have the color variation of genuine stone. It does, however, retain the texture of genuine stone. The splicing between each marble effect tile is more natural; natural stone flaws are eliminated, and the pavement is more random.

Marble like tiles are less expensive to buy and maintain.

Natural marble tile is very costly, and the maintenance cost is high, making it more suitable for high-end residential & villa decoration. In contrast, ceramic/porcelain marble tile is an alternative, with artificial stone as the base material, the price and maintenance cost will be much lower. The weight of the marble look tile is lighter compared to natural marble.

The imitation marble tile is resistant to wear and has a high glossiness.

It does not have the color variation problem that natural stone does. Thus, it has significantly greater physical characteristics than natural marble.

Ease of installation.

Marble illusion tile is considerably easier to lay than genuine marble since, due to the weight and radiation of natural marble, most people do not install a significant area at home. However, marble-like tile transcends this barrier since it is easy to cut and useful in art, mosaic, sculpture, ground combination, and other uses.

Invest In Tiles For A Timeless Marble Look

Your porcelain and ceramic tiles deserve to last a long time, and they can be finished with a variety of beautiful finishes that make your flooring and walls look like the real deal. The proper installation of these tiles make it essential for its longevity and can add some real value to your home in the long run.

If you plan on selling your home sometime in the future, you can use a porcelain tile that looks like marble to your advantage. This is especially true if you are planning on investing in new remodeling or repurposing projects. Something as small as building a little nook in your shower for the storage of shampoo and soaps can add a lot of depth and variety to the look of your bathroom. And it can all be achieved using the different types of faux marble tiles.

Marble is a classic and stunning building material that should be celebrated in all of its forms. And now, you don’t have to break the bank trying to do so. You can invest in some cheaper and still-durable materials to reflect the classy look of marble for timeless home style.

Indoor Pool and Hot Tub Ideas: Swim With Style At Home!


Swimming is one of the most popular pastimes of people across the world. Whether it’s swimming for exercise, for sport, or for leisure, there is something highly enjoyable about being in the water.

Everybody enjoys time spent in swimming pool. But during some of the harsher weather conditions, it can be difficult to enjoy the activity. Most outdoor pools tend to close for winter, preventing you from being able to enjoy the pool the way you want.

The best way to ensure that you can swim year-round is by investing in an indoor pool and hot tub. Building an indoor pool might be easier than you think, and the benefits of having one are nearly endless. If you’re a fan of swimming, and you don’t want to miss out on some great swimming opportunities over the coming months, you can check out some of these indoor pool and hot tub ideas to spark your inspiration.

Indoor Pool Designs Options

Living in a colder climate can prevent you from enjoying some common activities like being able to swim outside. But the benefit of an indoor pool is that you can use it anytime you want, regardless of what the weather’s like outside. They go great alongside a sauna or hot tub, where you can take a dip in the pool to cool down as you enjoy a few rounds in the jacuzzi. Having a house with indoor pool options is extremely valuable and highly sought-after.

Here are some popular interior pool designs that you may be interested in:

Long Rectangular Pool


Austin Design Inc

A great way to make the most out of an indoor space is to have a long rectangular pool, which is perfect for swimming laps or floating around. You can decorate the space with recessed lights or hanging lights on a hardwood ceiling for a unique and enjoyable look. Plus, it’s fairly affordable to install.

New and improved pool designs can come with a built-in current that allow you to experience different types of swimming based on the mood you’re in. An indoor pool should allow you to freely walk, swim, or perform laps even when you are confined to a small space. Try investing in a pool with a built-in current so you can feel like you are swimming forever, even if you remain in place.

Indoor Pool with Glass Covering


Paradise Valley Spas

Residential indoor pools don’t always come with the purchase, but there are ways to expand upon the property if you have the space. A popular idea that homeowners like to invest in is one that allows the transformation of a yard into a covered dome for an indoor pool. A glass covering gives the illusion that the pool is in the yard, so that you can be outside and inside at the same time. Plus, with built-in indoor heating around the area, it will be a cool experience to watch the snow falling above you as you swim in the pool without a worry.

Indoor Pools in the Bathroom

Building an indoor pool in the bathroom is a great choice for those who don’t have a lot of space to work with, or who want to enjoy a more luxurious time. If you live in a condo or apartment, this option may work for you as well, depending on how much you’re allowed to build. An indoor pool can be fitted in the bathroom with glass windows to enjoy the outside view as you keep warm in the indoor temperatures. It’s another affordable residential indoor pool option.

Exercise Pools

Some pools are built purely for exercise. Whether you use it as a way of getting fit, or you want something to help you with physical water therapy, there are a few indoor pool designs to choose from that offer practicality along with comfort. Not to mention this makes a great addition to any home!

Swimming Spas

Aquality Construction

Swimming spas are therapeutic and comfortable exercise pools that can be adjusted to whatever current and or temperature you desire. If you need a comfortable place to practice walking, you can enjoy the feeling of the cool water. Swimming spas are also useful for when you need to relax and detox, letting the stresses of your day melt away. It can be used as a swimming exercise pool for when you feel like having a more rigorous workout, too.

Resistance Pool



A resistance pool is an excellent solution for those who want to train their muscles and their body. Resistance pools create a current that tugs and pulls at your body more strongly than a regular pool would, making it great for those who are looking to get into some major fitness.

This is a type of swim exercise pool that will make you feel like you’re walking on a treadmill. If you’re familiar with treadmills, you will know that there are options to increase the resistance of the machine to make it feel like you are walking uphill during your exercise. A resistance pool acts much in the same way, allowing you to experience workouts that work on every muscle group in the body.

Indoor Hot Tubs

If you don’t have enough room in your home for an entire pool, you can still get a lot of enjoyment out of an indoor hot tub. These indoor spas can provide one of the best ways to relax, with internal heating options to make you feel loose and comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside. An indoor hot tub is great for people who need physical therapy, as well as for those who just want a leisurely place to kick back and enjoy some private time. Here are some great indoor hot tub ideas to get you started.

Indoor Hot Tub in the Workout Room

Do you have a designated part of your home that acts as a personal gym? You can install a hot tub right next to your workout machines for a fun and relaxing way to calm down after you’ve hit your gym.

Indoor hot tubs don’t need to be too large to be installed. In fact, they can be as small as an oval-shaped bathtub. Although it depends on your space requirements, as well as how many people you expect will be using the hot tub at any given time, you will be surprised to see what you can fit in tiny spaces.

Another viable option would be to invest in an above-ground hot tub. This will provide you with the option of moving it around or installing it temporarily to see how it feels. A popular spot for above-ground hot tubs is the bathroom, given there is enough space. You can also put them outside under a covered patio area, so you can have the enjoyment of being outdoors and indoors all at once.

Below we have listed some associated pros and cons that come with building an above-ground hot tub. Some prefer more of a built-in feel. Your choice depends on style and affordability, of which more is discussed in the next paragraph.

In-Ground Vs. Above-Ground Hot Tubs and Pools

If you’re building an indoor pool or a hot tub, there is always the option of installing an above-ground design. These are often more affordable and transportable, and do not require the hassles of having to dig and install a permanent fixture in the ground. There are associated pros and cons with both kinds of pools, and a brief list of them below can help you decide which one you want to choose.

In-Ground: Pros and Cons

The Pros:

A low profile blends in easier with the environment, creating a great look for your homeIt provides less clutter and makes the space appear more open and fullPermanent water features add great value to the home

The Cons:

They are often more expensive than above-ground optionsIn-ground pools and hot tubs can be more difficult to maintain

bove-Ground: Pros and Cons

The Pros:

They are very easy to install, and can last a long timeThey are often more affordable than in-ground optionsAbove-ground options are often easier to arrange inside the home for indoor options

The Cons:

They can sometimes get in the way as they don’t blend in as well with the layout of the roomThere is not as much visual appealSome high-end options cost just as much as in-ground options

Benefits Of Having An Indoor Pool

Most of us like swimming in outdoor pools, whether for exercise or simply to let off steam and enjoy a few peaceful hours to ourselves. It’s wonderful to be able to appreciate the presence of nature while you dive into the clear, sparkling water of your outdoor pool and work on your tan.

However, as soon as the winter season arrives, all of your enjoyable swimming hours are gone for the frigid winter months, which are definitely not favorable to swimming enthusiasts.

But it doesn’t imply you won’t be able to swim throughout the winter. What is the solution? Get yourself a stylish, trendy indoor pool! Yes, it’s pricey, but it’s also well worth it.

The most significant advantage of having an indoor swimming pool is that you can use it at any time of year. Say you want to swim at 2 a.m., you can switch on the lights and have an early-morning workout. Outside, it’s snowing.

Other benefits to consider:

You can swim in a temperature-controlled environmentThere is no wind, snow, hail, rain, or other weather occurrences to keep you from your daily swimIt is more private than swimming outdoorsYou don’t have to worry about pods, leaves, & plant debris clogging your systemYou can swim at any time of day or nightIt can be easier to clean & maintainIt’s an ideal location for a spool or swim spa, smaller than most pools but offer water activity

Surprisingly, the majority of indoor home pools are situated in cooler areas. That doesn’t imply they’re locked away in a gloomy chamber, cut off from nature. Some clever designers build an open, conservatory-like structure for an indoor pool, with lots of above and side windows that let natural light and views in.

How to Choose the Right Material

Choosing a tile based on look, price, and versatility is always the right thing to do. However, you should also consider whether the material you’re thinking of is good for your fireplace or not. Some types of tile may not do too well near the hearth, while others are better on the surround.

For example, if your fireplace is in a room with a certain type of floor covering, you should ensure that the substrate fireplace is strong enough to support the laying of tile. Similarly, the tile that is being laid on the ground should not contain materials that are too soft, or else they cannot withstand the heat.

Some fireplaces that are made of stone may buckle under the weight over time, causing the styrofoam underneath to crack. Make sure that you give your fireplace regular inspections and keep this resilience in mind when going forward with your renovation project.

Find Inspiration from What You Already Have!

The beauty of fireplace hearths and surrounds is that you don’t need a lot to make it look astounding. You can find that a little goes a long way, especially when it comes to sprucing up the appearance of your fireplace with a brand-new layer of tile.

Whether you enjoy a classical or monotoned look, or you are interested in getting a little creative with unique colors and patterns, there are a variety of ways to create something for your bedroom, basement, or living room that will provide you with tons of value for a long time to come.

One of the most versatile and diverse decorating materials in the world, tile, is used to enhance and accent the home in several different ways. Aside from its great practical uses, tile also makes for a splendid addition to an otherwise monotone room.

If you’re invested in a renovation or remodeling project, take a minute to think about an aspect of the home that you may not have thought about: The fireplace. How can the fireplace surround be decorated and expanded upon to earn higher value when the project is complete? One of the most popular ways to spruce up your mantel is to decorate it with tile.

Tiling around fireplace has been around for quite some time, and it only seems to gain more and more traction. If you’re looking for some fireplace color ideas, our quick round-up can serve as a great starting point.

Bedroom Fireplace Ideas

Some homeowners are lucky to have a fireplace in their bedroom, which is the perfect comfort solution for a cold winter night. When considering the aesthetic or theme of your bedroom, you can then determine what kind of tile would work best. For a more classic look, here are a few ideas to get you started:

Ceramic Tiles

Ceramic may come off as a bit simple at times, but sometimes simplicity is what is needed most. Ceramic is a good material for insulating heat, as the ceramic retains warmth for a very long time. However, they won’t appear hot to the touch when the fireplace is on. Ceramic is fairly cheap as well, so this is a great choice to go along with just about anybody’s budget.

Porcelain Tiles

Another great option for affordability, porcelain, has become one of the most common products for fireplace tiles. Why? This is because it can come in an almost endless array of colors, textures, and finishes. It’s super versatile, meaning that you can accent it in just about any way, shape, or form. These tiles also look great with fireplaces and TVs in the living room. It’s not just limited to the bedroom!

Granite Tiles

This is a good go-to product that can mimic the effect of natural stone, making it a great choice if you’re looking to keep things cool and collected. Granite is highly resistant to stains, scratches, and even acidic spills, making it one of the most durable options for tile fireplace surround ideas.

Basement Fireplace Ideas

The basement is a place for storage, relaxation, safety, and sometimes a spare guest room. Since it’s such a diverse and flexible room, the fireplace inside of it should reflect that as well. Whether you’re using your basement for a makeshift garage or a man cave, here are some great fireplace tile ideas to expand your surroundings into a style that’s truly your own.

Tile Frame

Tile frame is something that is simple and low-budget. If you don’t plan on showing off your basement very often, and you just want something that will keep your frame in place, you can look for tile frame options for a quick and traditional look.

Terra-Cotta Tiles

Terra-Cotta is an earthy material that can bring a lot of warmth in the winter and coolness in the summer. It’s perfect for the basement, where temperatures usually need to be regulated a little more tightly than the rest of the house. With terra cotta, you are adding to the beauty of nature while enhancing your basement to give it a more refined look.

One-Toned Tile

One-toned tile is a good choice for a fireplace that already has quite a decorated mantel. It’s best to go neutral on this one, with choices of white, brown, or grey. You can use a variety of materials for this tile, as long as they all turn out to be of a single color. Most of the time, homeowners will invest in a false brick or porcelain, which is cheap and does not take away from the beauty of the decorated mantel.

Living Room Fireplace Ideas

Possibly the most seen and trafficked part of your home, the living room is a place for hosting and relaxation. It’s where you want your guests to be; therefore, it’s where you’ll want to show off some of your best home decorations. It’s time to light up the fireplace, because this is where you have the freedom to get a bit fancy. Here are some of our favorite fireplace tiles ideas for the living room!

Marble Tile

Marble is one of the most coveted materials in the remodeling industry. It’s cool, smooth, and beautiful to look at; not to mention it can heavily increase the value of your home! It’s elegant, timeless, and it really stands out no matter what. If your budget can afford it, then you’ll be wise to invest in marble for years to come.

Traditional Stone and Brick Tile

What better way to wow your guests than with a large, tall, real-stone fireplace? You can showcase your cozy living room with something grand and historical, such as a big stone surround that really draws in the eye. Not to mention, it’s great at retaining heat, so during the coldest winter weeks, you’ll still be fully warm.

Glass Mosaic Tiles

Another great decorative idea, glass mosaic tiles really give your guests something to look at. Since the living room is the perfect place to show off, you can be welcomed by an array of shimmering tiles of varying shapes and sizes – or something that is symmetrical and all the same. You may know glass mosaic already from bathroom and kitchen back-splashes. They’re just as popular with fireplace surrounds, and it can be a great way to start incorporating some colors into your fireplace area.

Fireplace Color Ideas

For more decorative fireplace ideas, you might be looking for something that adds a little bit more pop and flair. Instead of a single-toned tile, you can decorate your surround not only with different colors, but with different designs, too. It’s nearly impossible for us to list all the great ways that homeowners can get creative, but we’ll list a few of our favorites here.

Fireplace Tile Patterns

Do you like stripes? How about zig-zags? You can achieve a classy yet fun look with some very diverse tile patterns. The fireplace is the perfect place to experiment with different tiles and designs, as it can really draw the eyes in without appearing to be too overwhelming. Create a sense of drama in your home with some white and blue zig-zag stripes, or alternating shades of yellow and gray.

Herringbone Tile Patterns

The herringbone style is quite a popular one, and it can make for a great conversation piece when investing in a fireplace. This is something that strays from the standard, making your home a valuable one. The herringbone style is much like a zig-zag pattern, using alternating shapes of long tiles to create a fishbone-like pattern.

Pebble Texture Tiles

When you imagine the different types of tiles available to your disposal, pebbles may not be the first things that come to mind. However, this is a great fireplace decorative idea if you are looking for something cute and different. They can highly contrast with something like wood flooring, which goes together better than you may think. Plus, it is good for covering larger spaces of your surround, in case you are looking to expand outward in your home redesign.
