When it comes to renovating a small house, choosing the right tiling can make all the difference in creating a space that feels both larger and more luxurious. Tiling is not just a practical necessity for areas like bathrooms and kitchens, but it is also a significant design element that can influence the overall aesthetic of your home. At BMB Renovation, we specialize in providing comprehensive tiling solutions that are tailored to the unique challenges and opportunities presented by smaller living spaces in London.

Understanding Tiling Options

Before you dive into the world of tiling, it’s important to understand the variety of materials and styles available:

  1. Ceramic Tiles – A popular choice for their durability and range of colors and designs.
  2. Porcelain Tiles – Known for their strength and water resistance, making them ideal for floors and walls.
  3. Natural Stone Tiles – Such as marble, granite, or slate, which add luxury and a timeless appeal.
  4. Mosaic Tiles – Small tiles often used as a decorative feature or border.
  5. Glass Tiles – Can add a modern and light-reflecting quality to any room.

Choosing Tiles for Small Spaces

Selecting the right tiles for a small house is crucial. Here are some tips to help you make the best choice:

  • Size Matters: Larger tiles can make a small space appear bigger. The fewer grout lines visible, the more seamless and expansive the surface will seem.
  • Light Colors: Light-colored tiles, such as whites or pastels, can help reflect light and give an airy, open feeling to a room.
  • Glossy Finishes: Tiles with a glossy finish will reflect light and can help make a space seem larger.
  • Diagonal Patterns: Laying tiles diagonally can create the illusion of depth and increase the perceived size of the space.

Tiling Tips for Small Houses

Here are some practical tips for small house renovations:

  • Keep it simple: In a small space, a busy pattern can overwhelm. Stick to simple designs and neutral colors for a cleaner, more spacious feel.
  • Continuity is key: Using the same tiling throughout different areas can create a sense of continuity and flow, making the house seem larger.
  • Don’t forget the vertical: Tiling up to the ceiling in bathrooms can draw the eye upwards, creating a sense of height.
  • Detailing with mosaics: Incorporating mosaic tiles as a feature strip or backsplash can add character without cluttering the space.

Installation and Maintenance

Proper installation is critical for the longevity of your tiling. At BMB Renovation, our experienced professionals ensure precise and careful tile fitting, waterproofing, and grouting for durability and a flawless finish.

Maintenance is relatively straightforward, with regular cleaning and the occasional resealing for certain types of tiles, such as natural stone, keeping your tiling looking immaculate.
