Take Advantage Of Printed Tiles
Printed Wall Tiles
If you would rather, you may choose from a gallery of metre square murals and choose from the many photos and designs. Once you decide upon which photo or design suits you, it can then be printed to any size you wish.
For an example of a finished product that sets the style with digitally printed wall tiles, London’s Greenfield High School sets the pace with its many colourful and exciting wall spaces using the concept. Other examples include Ted Baker of London, the Leeds City Council to name but a few.
There have been various methods of transferring pictures onto tiles in recent years, and then having the capability of adjusting the result to meet varying sizes of the final product. Direct and indirect methods of application have been used in this process, having the intention of creating consistency in the final production of equal proportion and colour reproduction.
The history of painted tiles goes back to the days even before the industrial revolution. Of course, in the early days, the painting was all hand done, with prices to match the intricate designs that were the result of such tedious work.

With the advent of computerisation, the ability to have a higher rate of output with seemingly matching quality has given the industry quite a boost in design and flexibility. The ability to take a digital photo and transfer it to a ceramic surface is quite a leap forward in technology.
There is a saying in manufacturing that states, “make more from less,” and that is exactly what has happened in the digital printing of tiles realm. New developments in the digital technology arena have made it possible to produce stunning finished products from literally any photograph or design.
There is also a distinction between a surface digital printing that is painted on the surface of the tile and a ceramic fired design where the image is a part of the glazed portion of the tile, which creates a more lasting effect, and more waterproof for the photo or design.
And finally, the ability to stretch or adjust the design to meet the required size of the finished product is just simply, very unique. The size of the tile effect can be set to fit a small bath area, to an expanded size on a grand scale, such as a wall at a swimming pool or recreational area.
This new format for the production of wall tiles is sweeping the UK and other parts of the world. It opens the door for very stylish, and contemporary areas to be made available in homes, public areas, and businesses.

A building with these areas of unique digitally printed wall tiles becomes an entirely new vista compared to what it was before the tiles were set into place. There is no doubt that people respond more positively to areas of a building or venue outdoors that has well-coordinated colour. It is possible to create incredible designs and areas of magnificent richness by the implementation of a well thought through the plan with these tiles. The result is extremely astounding and positive.
A home can be a difficult place to decorate because each home has different sizes of rooms, layouts and cultural looks. It’s a sad fact that many people end up with catalogue generic designs. Even designer homes rarely vary all that much. Most designers pick from similar colour palates, and the layout of the rooms tend to be fairly limited too. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could come up with a truly unique and visually appealing look for your entire home?
While it’s true that the fixtures and fittings in each room are dictated by necessity, there’s no need for the window dressing, flooring and walls to look the same in every home. Designer homes will all have something in common, naturally. Yet that doesn’t mean they all have to look copied and pasted.
Sleek, modern homes are definitely in fashion at the moment. Granite countertops, lots of large mirrors, chrome taps and clean, sleek looking baths and sinks are the order of the day. It seems a shame to spoil that look by simply using plain, pastel coloured tiles. Instead, why not opt for something striking and impressive.
UniqueTiles with a landscape view, overlooking modern cities or Austrian snowcapped mountains can create just the atmosphere you’re looking for. Pick a scene that you love, and that both helps you relax and lets you feed on the positive energy. The water theme makes a lot of sense for the bathroom, but it isn’t the only theme that you can play with. If you want to do something more unusual, try a mountain theme, or perhaps a scene from Alaska or Greenland, which also work perfectly for a master bedroom. The cool appearance and “back to nature” tone of those scenes suit the purpose of a room meant for relaxation and is clean and refreshing looking. Woodland scenes are another unusual but stunning design choice, perfect for kitchens, pantries and bedrooms.
Period homes tend to be more limited in what you can do with them since you want to keep the original fixtures and fittings as much as possible. You can accent that authentic, original look with some custom tiles, however. If you have a Victorian bathroom, but you don’t like traditional Victorian tiles or wallpaper, why not pretend that there’s a window by the wall, and put a Victorian street scene up there? Or, if you have an Edwardian room, break from tradition slightly and add an Art Deco touch. It may not be authentic, but it will look good, and it’s a change that can be reversed, so if you ever decide that you prefer something closer to the original look you can simply change the tiles.

Many of us view the bathroom in a practical way—it’s a place where we take care of our hygiene and that’s about it. A typical bathroom is usually decorated in a utilitarian fashion, making it a place where you go in and stay only as long as necessary. But what if your bathroom was designed in a more attractive manner, making it a place to relax and recoup after a busy day? UniqueTiles can help you transform your utilitarian bathroom into an oasis of calm and peace with beautiful bespoke tiles.
