The best sort of kitchen is one that lets in a lot of light in the morning, as this is a very good way to start the day. A kitchen that reflects light around the room allows you to gently wake up over your breakfast, before climbing the stairs to brush your teeth so you don’t have to make use of your family dental plan. Another example of rooms like this is the bathroom, where it is a good idea to have a lot of light in the room. As this is a room where you are cleaning yourself as well as taking care of your teeth, it is a good idea to have enough light so you can see what you are doing.

The kitchen is the heart of any family home. It is where we prepare and cook for our loved ones, clean the dishes and in most cases it is where breakfast and other informal dining experiences can be enjoyed. It is always a shame when people don’t always make the most of their fitted kitchens, no matter what sort of size or style kitchen you have there are always minor adjustments you can do to improve the look, feel and functionality of the room. These can be simple things such as adding furniture or experimenting with different layouts to changing fixtures in the room; like the type of flooring or updating to more modern kitchen tiles.

Using kitchen wall tiles you can achieve a range of effects that will lighten up even the darkest kitchen. Choosing light tile colours helps to reflect light back into the room, this is perfect for kitchens that have restricted light or small windows. By using lighter marble tiles on the kitchen floor, you will reflect any light back up on to the kitchen wall tiles. Using a reflective ceramic kitchen wall tile that compliments the marble tiles on the floor will look stylish as well as giving the impression that your kitchen is much bigger.

When it comes to installing bathroom tiles there are a number of different techniques that you can use. It is possible to use glass bathroom tiles that let light through. You can get some great effects using these tiles either on the floor with lighting underneath or on walls. A new innovation in wall tiles are heat sensitive tiles that change colour depending on how hot the room is. You can achieve some truly spectacular looks unlike any other by using these tiles on the walls of your bath or shower unit.
