Lorena Ongaro-Anderson Design
An important article.. we forget how a tiles can achieve a completely different aesthetic when taking scale , lighting , cabinetry and other important design elements into consideration.

I have a client that I’m working with now who has discovered that by choosing a design professional she can achieve her desired outcome in her small kitchen by allowing a designer to come in and help her understand that the right tile laid the right way can truly be the “jewel” of her kitchen.

I consistently say that the splash-back is the jewellery of every kitchen..

You need to choose wisely and adorne it correctly!

The same consideration with grout!!

Finally an article that addresses these important considerations.

Most people look at tiles independently of the whole design and if seen laid a certain way believe that that is the “desired” or “correct” application..

Thank you once again for an important article!
