To make the interior bright and unforgettable, you can choose tiles for decoration. But you will have to put it not in the usual, but in a non-standard way, using various geometric patterns.
The tile can be trapezoidal or oval, with uneven edges and octagonal. There are also round, triangular and in the form of scales. There are a lot of samples of such tiles and it will not be difficult to find it.
Pros and cons of this room design:
- A non-standard room looks unusual. He has his own zest, so you need to think in advance how exactly the tile will be laid out;
- Fits perfectly into such interior design as high-tech, art deco and modern. Therefore, almost nothing is needed for additional decoration of the walls. The central place will be occupied by tiles;
- The original coating perfectly joins various materials, such as laminate or tile, and the tile itself with an uneven edge looks unusual on the wall. In a word, the interior becomes original and spectacular;
- Tiles can create a 3D effect that makes the walls embossed. Such an interior looks expensive.
In a word, due to the non-standard geometry of the tile, you can decorate the walls of any room, whether it is an entrance hall, kitchen or bathroom. It all depends on the design idea and skillful hands.
What are the disadvantages of a non-standard form?
Custom tile itself is not expensive, but accessories and installation will cost a lot. Beads, various impregnations and a stylish design, as well as styling, are decent for the master. But such an interior is worth it, because the tile will last a long time, which means repairs will not be needed soon.
The complex shape of ceramics is difficult to wash, but if you do not run it, it will always look stylish. During installation, the master will try on every detail for a long time so that the pattern matches up to a millimeter. Otherwise, beauty will not work. Repair of such a plan is long, but worth it.
Be sure to consider the features of the interior and tile design. So the torn edges will not look beautiful where everything is sharpened by smooth lines.
That is, before installing the tile, you must have a design project for the future premises, so that all this looks appropriate.
If the walls are uneven, how to be
If the walls themselves are uneven, then it is better to align them before laying the tiles. Of course, tiles of complex geometry and relief will slightly hide the curvature of the walls, but will not completely fix them.
For these purposes, it is better to use a mosaic, which due to small details distracts the eye from the curved surface of the walls.
Uneven walls lead to a displacement of the picture, so it is better to align them as much as possible before starting the installation.
When using tiles of complex geometry, many fragments can remain, this should also be borne in mind. Therefore, you will have to buy tiles with a margin of up to 30% more than expected.
Grout, like size, matters
If the surface is planned to be homogeneous, then do not forget to buy a grout to match the color of the tile. This will help highlight the ornament. When part of the wall is made due to decoration, the grout, on the contrary, is selected in contrast.
It is worth considering the size of the tile itself. For smaller rooms, it is better to take a smaller tile, while large rooms look great in large format tiles.
There are many peculiarities of wall decoration with the help of non-standard tiles, so it is better to entrust the work to specialists who will prompt the right ideas.
