Tiles Australia – New Life For Leftover Tiles

Tiles Australia. Have you finished your tiling project? If so, you may find that as you stand back admiring your (or the person you hired’s) handy work, you have a surplus of tiles remaining. Some of these may have broken into shards, others may be slightly chipped, yet others cracked. Or perhaps you simply have some tiles that did not quite fit into your tiling scheme the way you wanted. What now do you do with them?

Stash, Don’t Trash

First of all, if you have left over tiles in good repair, you may find it the course of wisdom to hang on to some in case you need to replace damaged tiles. Or use parts of them to make repairs. However, what else could the lonely tiles holed up in your garage do for you?

Head For The Border

You can use light weight wall tiles to add a dash of spice to any room of your home. You can do this in the form of a border. For instance, do you have some leftovers after tiling your bathroom wall? Some of these you could use to create a border around the edge of your kitchen countertop. Or perhaps a fun border surrounding a closet. So grab those spare tiles, investigate, and create!

Tiles Australia – Too Hot To Handle To Cold To Hold

Another idea is for you to add some silicone to the bottoms of larger tiles to create a hot plate. Also, to protect your kitchen counters or table tops. Use smaller tiles to create coasters for your hot and cold beverages.

Hanging Around

Release your inner Picasso by taking a single, large, intricately designed tile and placing it on the wall in place of a painting or wall hanging. Add some accents to it with a border or even a frame. With a bit of creativity and ingenuity, leftover tiles can gain new life.
