4 Creative Ways to Use Tile in Your Home

Are you looking for a way to spice up your kitchen or add a focal point in your living room? Consider using tile to add interest and charm to various areas of your home. By thinking out of the box, you can use tile in various ways and many spaces. Wherever you choose to use tile in your home, Tub Tile & Tops recommends these four creative applications that are bound to elevate your living space.

4 Creative Ways to Use Tile in Your Home

1. Fireplace Surroundings

Using tiles as a fireplace surround is an economical alternative to framing your fireplace with masonry work. Not only does it add a modern feature to your home, but it also highlights your living or family room. Look for tile with higher breaking strength that can withstand fireplace heat, and use a polymer premium-grade mortar with a strong bond.

2. Kitchen Backsplashes

Tile backsplashes are a great way to add color, texture, and visual appeal to your kitchen. Apply any tile, such as subway, mosaic, accent, or combination. A custom tile design can upgrade the dull wall between your cabinets and countertops. Plus, tile backsplash makes clean-up easier from food splashes, grease splatters, and liquid spills. 

3. Bathroom Mirrors

Enhance that boring mirror in your bathroom with a unique and attractive tile frame. Select a tile with the same color scheme as the shower, or brighten it with a vibrant and spicy look. Choose between two distinct designs by mounting the tile on the mirror or the wall around it. 

4. Tabletops

Would you like to upgrade an old kitchen table or renew that aged end table in your living room? Create a beautiful mosaic on these surfaces with leftover tile. Applying different patterns and designs to square or rectangular furniture is ideal to avoid cutting the tile. Small mosaic tiles look great on round tables and are easy to apply.

5 Differences Between DIY & Professional Shower Repair

When the shower in your Nashville home has seen better days, it’s time to either repair or replace it. Maybe you’ve thought about trying to repair it on your own, thinking it will save you time and money. Before refinishing those nicks, cracks, and holes on your own, review these five differences between DIY repairs and professional shower refinishing from Tub Tile & Tops.

5 Differences Between DIY & Professional Shower Repair

1. Appearance

Repairing or refinishing your shower requires the use of tools like rollers and brushes. In DIY shower repair, these will provide an adequate finish, but they may also leave brush marks and drips on the wall. After our professional repairs are completed, your shower will be smooth and streak-free as if it were brand new.

2. Colors

Most over-the-counter shower repair kits offer only two colors — white or almond. Many professional refinishing companies, like Tub Tile & Tops, can refinish your shower in a wide range of colors. They can also match the existing color, even if it’s an older model, or they can create a new one altogether.

3. Time

A typical DIY shower repair can take an entire day out of your schedule. Plus, you need to let it dry for at least 24 hours before using it. When our technicians arrive at your home, we are there for anywhere from three to five hours and the shower will be ready to use within four hours of the completed repair.

4. Durability 

If you choose to tackle the shower repair on your own, you can expect it to last for about two years. When you choose Tub Tile & Tops to refinish your shower, the newly repaired shower will last from 10 to 15 years, as long as you clean and maintain it regularly.

5. Work Crews

Performing DIY shower repairs requires only you or a friend if you ask someone for assistance. When we perform professional shower repairs, we send skilled and experienced work crews to your home, and our courteous technicians provide a quick and mess-free service.
