Choosing Tiles for Kitchen and Bathroom

3 Nov

The day after I’ve signed the contract with my contractor, he brought me to shop for tiles. We went to Hafary at Balestier Road. I was overwhelmed by the number of tiles available and took an hour to choose the tiles for my kitchen and bathroom.

Here are the tiles I’ve chosen:

The window grilles in my kitchen is a dark brown colour. To complement that, I intend to choose a dark brown floor tiles. I’ve always wanted wooden flooring but that’s not practical in a kitchen, so I’ve choosen tiles with wood grain patterns. As for the walls tiles, I’ve choosen white tiles that look like wooden planks.

For toilets, somehow I prefer darker tiles. Again, I’ve chosen dark and light brown tiles with wood grain patterns.
