In Your Bathroom

From the floor, to the walls, to your shower pan, there is a lot of ground to be covered in the bathroom, hence a lot of fun to be had with tiles! You can go bold with a hand painted accent wall or floor, but if you’re on a budget, you can always make a statement with a short splash or a running band above your sink. Moreover, hand painted patterns work especially well for flooring options. They look great and as an added advantage, they create a nice grip for your feet in damp environment.

In Your Kitchen

Whether you go for a hand painted backsplash and field tile for your flooring, or vice versa, you’re guaranteed a result you will love for times to come. Many people tend to go ahead with a hand painted focal point above the stove top and tile the rest of the kitchen space with field tile. There’s no need to spend a lot of money on glossy tiles if you’re looking for a more affordable way to go.

Another option for the kitchen is pairing thin glazed brick or glazed vitrified tiles with hand painted tile to add more meaning to your space.

In Your Living Room

A hand painted tile floor smartly paired with classic 3×6 subway tiles on the backsplash allows for an exquisite flooring option. The living room floor is a beautiful canvas that can be rightly decorated with marble look tiles, polished vitrified tiles, and more to show off a larger scale hand painted pattern.
