3 Ways to Predict How Your New Tile Will Look, Odessa, Texas

You think you’ve found the perfect bathroom or kitchen tile. But while it may look beautiful by itself in the box or in the showroom, that might not necessarily translate to your home. Before investing in a possibly-expensive material, use the following tips to help you envision what the final product will be. 

How to Pick the Right Tile for Your Home 

1. Bring Home Samples

Kitchen TileTile looks different online than it will in person due to variances in lighting. You might also get an incorrect impression of the scale. Even if you’re positive the colors and sizes will match the aesthetic you currently have planned, purchase samples of your favorite tile options and bring them home so you can see exactly what they will look like without the guesswork. 

2. Layout the Pattern

If you have a kitchen tile pattern in mind, buy enough sample tiles to recreate it—like putting together a puzzle. The design may look busier than you expected or you might find that rearranging the pieces works better. This is your time to experiment before installation begins. Just make sure to stand back and consider what it will look like from across the room—just like most guests would. 

3. Use an Online Visualizer Tool 

An online visualizer tool lets you see what your bathroom or kitchen tile selection will look like in the space. Find a free one that allows you to upload a picture from inside your house and then virtually install the chosen material. Some programs will even let you zoom in and out or shift your focus to see what it will look like from different perspectives.
