An often overlooked area of the design process, the laundry room can be created in such a way that its overall style complements the design aesthetic of the rest of your home for a cohesive and elegant look throughout your interiors. As the laundry room is considered a wet area in the home, a tiled splashback and tiled flooring will provide an excellent solution in keeping this area safe from excess moisture and humidity. There are many exciting laundry tiles available to choose from that will create an elegant and sophisticated look in your design from classic marble tiles to timeless terrazzo tiles and more.
