What’s your New Year resolution for 2018? Some home renovations that you’ve been putting off perhaps, or to learn a new skill or craft? Why not do both at once…
Tiling is a great skill to learn, once you’ve got the hang of it, with so many beautiful tile designs and styles to choose from, you can make a really beautiful, eye catching addition to almost any room in the house. From kitchen splashbacks, bathroom walls, and flooring, to decorative hearths or even stair risers, and that’s just inside, decorative tiling looks stunning around your garden too!
Once you’ve decided on your project you’ll need the kit for the job. A complete set like the one pictured will only set you back around £20 and you can use it again and again.
There are lots of great tutorials available on youtube for an easy-to-follow introduction to tiling that will set you up with the essential skills you need to set to work on your tiling project. Here’s a great one from Wickes
