What Houzz contributors are saying:
“It’s not about whether the walls are painted in the latest colours, but rather whether the space evokes the desired emotions in the user,” says Maria Roussos, also based in Sydney. “Does it entice, stimulate, relax, entertain, embrace, fascinate? Good design achieves this through the manipulation of space, light, colour, materials, textures, furniture, and myriad other elements. Ultimately all this works together in a delicate balance of form and function. And this is important because it improves our quality of life.”Caterina Magliulo, an interior designer based in Milan, Italy, reminds us that interior designers are best placed to take on this challenge, thanks to their knowledge and training. “The professional interior designer has a great knowledge of materials and a perspective on spaces and colours as a result of their research and training,” she says.

What is a ‘tile rating’? Tiles come in different shapes, sizes, colours, materials and finishes, which is why tile ratings are important. Tile ratings are international technical evaluations that are used to help you make an informed decision about which tile is the best fit for your needs.Find a tiler on Houzz to help you redo your kitchen or bathroom
