Lots of progress have been done with tile effects. We all seen the superb wood porcelain tiles in restaurant lobby. They provides form and function. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are perfect for high traffic areas and a wet area like a bathroom or a pool house.
One brand that carries upscale luxurious tiles is Porcelanosa, a Spanish company that started in a small village by the Mediterranean Sea in Castellon, Spain. Browsing their catalogue is a treat. They have been in the United States for the last 20 years. Porcelanosa say that their products are available at surprisingly affordable prices.
If you wish to add the effect of luscious wallpaper in your bathroom without worrying about maintenance, go with wall tiles. My collage at the top shows a bathroom with Decor Silk Blanco tile. Venezia provides a baroque print. The sophisticated lino metal series would look awesome in his bathroom.
Bringing Character to a Room with Tiles
Continuing on masculine home decor, I really like the ambiance of these two lounges. One the library, I wish to point out the large scale tiles while the natural stone fireplace is the star of this bachelor lounge. The two lamps fits so well in the space.
The reflexion of the 3D Blueker looks incredible on the pool. These pictures clearly demonstrates how you can make a statement with porcelain and ceramic tiles.
