About Me

remodeling to acommodate an elderly loved one

When I invited my mother to come and live with my family, we had to make some changes to accommodate her. The changes that needed to be made were all within reason and were all required so that she could get around with her walker and eventually a wheelchair if need be. I hired a remodeling contractor to assist us with making the changes. I learned a lot while discussing what needed to be done and what it would take to get it complete. I created this blog with the hopes of helping other families that are considering making the same changes in their homes.

Wall Tile Ideas That Can Offer A Spacious Look

There are lots of things for you to think about if you're interested in putting tile on one or more walls of a room. While you'll want the tile you choose to suit the overall vibe of the room, it may also be important to ensure that the room offers a spacious look. You don't want the addition of the tiles to make the room feel small, particularly if it's already small in size. A tile supplier will have lots of suitable options that can add style to the space without making it feel smaller. Here are some wall tile ideas that can offer a spacious look.


When you have a small room that you want to make feel larger, it's common to hang a mirror on the wall. Doing so gives the illusion of the room being larger than it actually is. The same result can be true when you use mirrored wall tiles on one or more of the walls. There are lots of different mirrored tiles on the market; you may find that those that are larger do a better job of creating a spacious feel than those that are small. You can even get mirrored tiles that are tinted in different colors, which can make it easy to choose a product that suits the color scheme of the room.


White colors tend to make a room look spacious. When you have a small room that you don't want to feel small, it's often a good idea to paint it in white or off-white, rather than in a darker color. It's worthwhile to consider using white or off-white tiles for a similar outcome. White tiles are plentiful at tile shops; you'll likely find tiles in many different sizes, shapes, and finishes, which will give you lots of options if you like the idea of using white or off-white tiles in a room.


Another product to consider using if you want to create a spacious feel in a room is glass tile. Covering one wall in glass tiles can almost make it seem as though there's a window in the room, and windows almost always help to make a room feel more spacious. Some people may like the look of clear glass tiles, while others will prefer glass tiles that have a gentle tint in a color such as blue or green. Shop for these wall tile products at a local tile store.
