In the current Big Idea Issue 95, the DECO Lab section is all about surfacing; everything you need to know when updating or renovating floors, surfaces and walls. There is a special focus on tiles.

They are the new big thing, so don’t banish them to the bathroom and kitchens -they are wonderfully practical and add colour, pattern and texture to any room. With so many new choices of tiles available locally, mix and match, add texture, new shapes, and use in unconventional ways and spaces.

For a dramatic, unique and unexpected look, use statement tiles, which are artworks in their own right, as headboards behind beds,

or create signature feature walls by continuing a fashionable floor tile and running it up onto the wall.

It’s really easy to create a magic carpet with patterned tiling and, in terms of design, anything goes.  For a custom-made look visit a supplier like Moroccan Warehouse, Tile Studio or Onsite Gallery and develop a unique pattern or combination with them.
