Tile refinishing can drastically reduce the cost of bathroom and kitchen remodeling. However, you may be worried that the end result will look cheap or bland. There are easy ways to customize tile refinishing without going over budget. Check out these creative ideas from Maryland Tub and Tile.
Add Contrast in Strategic Places
Choosing white for all of your tile refinishing will give you a clean look, but it may not be the custom design of your dreams. Consider adding a contrasting color or texture in strategic places. For instance, if some of your tile is turned in a different direction, you could put an accent color on that tile. The accent can still be neutral, but it doesn’t have to be white. You could also do an accent border or contrasting color for the floors. This will create visual interest and will help your home look personalized.
Create a Cohesive Color Scheme for the Whole Room
When you think about tile refinishing, picture your room as a whole. For instance, you may choose an accent border in the bathroom that matches the color of the floor. You could make your shower pan and countertops the same finish, drawing a viewer’s eye around the room. If you have tile that you aren’t going to refinish, make sure the reglazed tile has a coordinating color pallet. This is the type of planning that makes a home look professionally designed.
Opt for a Faux Stone Finish, Especially on Countertops
One of the biggest benefits of tile refinishing is that you can get the look of stone without the cost. Want your tile countertops to look like granite? We can do that! Want your accent border to have a stone look? We can do that too! Faux stone has tons of visual interest, and it perfectly contrasts a clean, white tile surface.
Choose a Metallic Finish for Accent Finishes
Did you know that you can get a metallic finish from tile and countertop refinishing? One of our favorite projects featured a beautiful copper shower pan. It looked custom and luxurious, but it didn’t cost anymore than a simple white shower pan would have! Don’t be afraid to go bold with your design.
Make Outdated Tile Blend with Its Surroundings
You have a decorative scroll tile that you don’t mind the texture of, but you hate the color. You can make this blend in with the rest of your tile through the refinishing process. If all of the tile is the same color, that extra texture will create that ‘custom’ look. The best part is, you don’t have to do any extra work to get it!
Add Décor That Enhances Your Design
Décor can change the way any bathroom or kitchen looks. Decorative towels, new hardware, modern artwork and colorful accents can bring your design to life. Choose décor that adds to the look of your refinished tile. When the design looks purposeful, it instantly feels more expensive.
Get Professional Tile Refinishing from an Experienced Company
Whatever you do, steer clear of DIY tile refinishing programs. These kits have inconsistent results that chip easily and wear off quickly. A truly custom bathroom will look professionally done. Don’t settle for the cheapest option because it will ultimately cost you more in the long run. With professional tile refinishing, you can get amazing results for a fraction of the cost of tile replacement and new countertops.
