Fleeting Moments: Integrating Tile into the Home

With Autumn quickly approaching, it is time to start thinking about how to dress our homes to make our spaces as cozy as possible for the upcoming season. Ceramic floor and wall tile from Tile of Spain turns to greys, apricots, and soft earth tones inspired by natural elements to complete a warm, comfortable feeling for colder days.

 

Inviting Spaces 

 

The living room is one of the most inviting rooms in the home, encouraging conversation and relaxation. Families can participate in board games or lounge while watching movies. Picking a ceramic floor tile that promotes an ambiance of rest and relaxation is important in ensuring that the living room remains one of the most comfortable rooms in the home. Basic colors such as hues of grey from Aparici achieve an atmosphere of balance and serenity, which can be strengthened with light colored furniture and large windows. Using the largest possible ceramic floor tiles accentuates the continuity of the floor. One of the latest trends of flooring includes matte, stressed or brushed finished to make the space feel well lived-in.

Connecting Areas

 

The wide array of tile options available from Tile of Spain, along with their versatility, allows us to experiment with designs on both floors and walls. If the objective of the design is to create a special corner space where we can spend our spare time curled up with a book during the autumn months, we can always rely on ceramic wall tiles for a traditional touch.  Soft hues, like the tiles seen below from Bellacasa, transmit that sense of tranquility that is recommended in spaces that are destined for relaxation.  A monochromatic décor is almost always the right choice and serves as an easier transition to other spaces in the home.

Spaces With Unlimited Possibilities 

 

When we are lucky enough to have naturally bright rooms with ample open space, ceramic tile is an indispensable tool for designing the décor. Along with practical characteristic uses, there are also endless decorating possibilities.  To give the sensation of more space and square footage we can install a nature inspired floor, with sophisticated wood tones such as Kenzo and Matrix series from Argenta Ceramica. Extra long formats and unique installation techniques increase the sense of space. Exposed beams, curtain-less windows, furniture and vintage appliances complete the autumn room ensemble.

Nostalgic Touches

 

Some colors you can never go wrong with, and every fall nostalgic colors come together to evoke the natural beauty of the season. Colors in subdue hues such as greens, oranges, and browns come back in style every fall. A perfect combination of medium sized ceramic floor tile in a matte finish, such as Omat series from Azuliber, create a sense of subtlety, and wall tiles with very light, almost ethereal details create an elegant and discreet style. Sophisticated touches from furniture and decorative pieces can perfectly balance the nostalgic, decorative ensemble.

Morning: The Best Part of The Day

 

To awaken and be surrounded by light, in a comfortable and warm room is the perfect ending to a night of peaceful rest. Ceramic floor tile inspired by the lightest of wood tones is the key element for minimalist décor where white details reign supreme. The technical properties of the ceramic floor tiles, such as Roca Tile, makes the installation of radiant heat possible, which in turn eliminates the use of bulky radiators, making the room truly comfortable.  Every detail counts in allowing us to comfortably enjoy our homes during the fall and winter months.
