Smart Tiles to the Rescue: How to Improve Your Home

Yep, spring is finally right around the corner and with the change of seasons comes a craving for tranquility, light and new beginnings. After all these weeks stuck between four walls, we’re itching for a change, especially in the house department. It’s okay to admit that sometimes the budget just doesn't support our stylish big dreams, and sometimes we just don't have the energy to start exhausting renovations. Fear not! With Smart Tiles, you can still update your home with just a bit of money and effort.

All Aboard the Fancy Stairs Train

Often overlooked as a style element, stairs can play an important role when showcased properly. Give them the credit they deserve by adorning the risers with our tiles. This little trick not only gives you a chance to have fun playing with contrasts, it also works for all styles. Are you drawn to clean, modern decors? Take a look at our dramatic Penny Nora or our classic Metro Blanco. If you’re all about colours and maximalist interiors, you’ll love our Metro Fiona and its simply stunning deep green hue. Oh, you’re a fan of Mediterranean-inspired decors? Then dive into our Vintage Collection. We have the perfect tile for everyone’s taste!

Rekindle with Your Fireplace

Forget about painting your living room for the third time. If you want an instant boost, think “fireplace” first. Have you got a real, functioning fireplace? Install our Smart Tiles around it. If you love the natural look, our Pietra Alcamo simulates stone while our Brik collection looks just like, well, brick! For a more romantic vibe, the Vintage Velleri is your model. If you have a faux fireplace, you have an advantage that the others don’t: you can put the tiles inside the hearth itself, for a unique, elegant finish.

Refresh Your Old Kitchenette

To anyone who owns a play kitchen, this will be a fun project for you. Whether you want to please your offspring or simply remind yourself of your childhood, use our Smart tiles to coordinate the kitchenette with your real kitchen. A touch of paint and a tiny backsplash can make all the difference. Big smiles guaranteed!

Make Your Kitchen Island the Real Star!

Rather than drawing attention to your kitchen backsplash, why not highlight your kitchen island instead?

With a more neutral credenza behind the oven, you can afford a little more originality in this central piece. With its deep, glossy black hue, the Subway Nero will capture the eye (and the heart) of even your most distracted visitor, as will the Metro Ava with its pretty pale pink colour. With patterns, bright colours or texture, our Smart Tiles always stand out.

Rejuvenate the Coffee Table

Fun projects don’t always have to be complex. Why not give your coffee table a quick refresh? After all, you need a proper backdrop to showcase the books displayed there to impress your guests. To make your task easier, work with our individually sold Vintage tiles, such as the Vintage Girona Dove or the Vintage Girona Nera, to create a unique look that’s all your own. If you have a little more time and motivation, take the opportunity to sand and varnish your coffee table. The final result will be worth it!

Enhance Your Favourite Mirror
