Subway tilesIf you add a glaze to earthenware tiles to make the surface less porous, this is called a glazed ceramic tile and the subway tile is a modern version of this. They’ve been around since 1904 but have been wildly popular in recent years. They are used in kitchens and bathrooms because they fit well into the minimalist or Scandinavian interior style.Check out other ways to lay subway tiles
Get the look:For a steampunk industrial bathroom, go for white subway tiles and a black-and-white floor. Use exposed metal fixtures and a black-framed shower cubicle to get that industrial edge.
3. Brass-y charmThe four-room flat is a fusion of industrial and modern luxe styles, says designer Alvin Ling of The Scientist. The bathroom reflects the industrial aspect with its subway tiles, but the black framed shower enclosure and black fittings are more evocative of modern luxe. The brass fixtures and carefully matched pendant light finish the look with a vintage flourish.Read the Houzz Tour: A Newlyweds’ Home Goes Dark and Gilded
Contrasting geometric patterns – rectangular subway tiles for the walls against octagonal floor tiles – lend visual drama to the monochromatic master bathroom.
Time to call the pros?For major renovations, professional cleaners can be called in, as clean-up may be too extensive and taxing to do on your own. If you had your renovation done on a home you are already living in, you would have already had furniture and soft furnishings. Mattresses, sofas, carpets, and curtains – even if you had covered them in plastic or newspaper – will need a thorough clean as these often accumulate dust that may cause respiratory problems like asthma or rhinitis.
