Consult

It is far easier to visualize your perfect area than to practically bring that picture to life, especially if you do not know the right questions to ask. The process can be daunting and quite overwhelming! Here at Origin8, we provide a personalised consulting service. We can take you through the process and where possible, provide samples of what you might be interested in from the comfort of your own home. So whether you are considering using: Porcelain, Glass, Metal, Natural Stone, wood, Laminate or mosaics; (perhaps concrete or why not a combination?) Our aim is to minimize your stress by asking a few questions.

8 Questions to ask when beautifying an area with tile décor

  1. What is your budget?
  2. What is your colour scheme?
  3. What kind of finish are you looking for? Plain, matt, gloss, a glazed look or are you wanting a 3D effect – a play with light?
  4. What is your objective?
    • Do you want the choice to bring life to an area that is outdated?…or…
    • Do you want the choice to blend in to the surrounding area?…or…
    • Does you it become a MAJOR FEATURE of an area – a conversation piece? Are you looking for the WOW factor?
  5. Is the application for indoors, outdoors, in a permanent wet area, or behind a hob in the kitchen?
  6. Does the product need to be sealed?
  7. What adhesive and grout needs to be used? (What about the merits of a one part Mosaic Fix?)
  8. Where do I find a qualified/ reliable / professional installer / tiler?

Please give us a call! We look forward to working with you to bring your visualized picture to life!
