Spring is on the way - are you giving your home a fresh new look? Giving your home a glow-up for 2022 doesn’t have to break the bank. In fact, some clever planning will help you save some pennies on your interior design project, without compromising on quality. Here are some of our top tips to help you refresh your home tiling on a budget.
After finding the tile you want, you may well be tempted to tile your entire kitchen or bathroom, but why not dip your toe in the water with a smaller-scale project? Projects such as tiling your cloakroom or en-suite will give you the opportunity to find the style that’s right for you before you start saving for larger projects. Some of our customers have even started by tiling their fireplace!
Create A Feature Wall
Can’t resist getting started on a larger space? If budgets are tight, don’t forget that you don’t have to tile the entire space! By opting to tile the lower half of your walls in your kitchen or bathroom, or by limiting your tiling to a feature wall or kitchen splashback, you could cut the cost of your tiles whilst still creating a dramatic impact in your home.
Choose ceramic over porcelain
Porcelain tiles may look beautiful, but they come with a more expensive price tag to match! Save some costs by opting for cheaper ceramic tiles, which are both durable and easy to maintain, as well as being available in a range of colours, styles and patterns. At Tile Market, we have a fantastic range of ceramic tiles on offer, perfect for shopping on a budget.
Do It Yourself
It comes as no surprise that you can save money on tiling by opting to do some DIY, rather than hiring a professional to do the job for you. It may take longer to do it yourself, but with a little patience, some practice, and maybe the help of a friend or family member, you can tile your home for less! Top tip: Be sure to remember to budget for the extra tiling accessories and equipment you will need, such as grout, tile spacers, tile cutters and trims. We can advise you on all of the essentials.
Grab A Bargain
Last but not least, the best way to glow-up on a budget is to be a savvy shopper and snap up a bargain when they come around. If you’re working to a budget, we recommend watching out for sales and discounts.
