Vintage tiles can add color to any kitchen and bathroom. Now, kitchen and bathroom tiles are usually designed for easy cleaning and washing, but years ago, they came in intricate and bold designs to give any space a vivacious look. They were eye-catching and practical, and they were considered as everyday art.
Vintage tiles are making a comeback. That is if they ever left. Now, more people appreciate the styles of past generations. From walls, floors, and backsplashes, vintage tiles are here again.
You can find authentic vintage tiles at antique shops or salvage yards, with their price depending on their condition, style, and size. Some go to auction houses, where prices can go as high as $50,000 for a small set of vintage tiles.
If you live in a house where vintage tiles are already installed, then you are lucky as you no longer have to spend on the renovation. You only have to work on the paint colors and maybe some accessories to achieve the look that will go well with your tiles.
If going authentic is out the question because of cost, you can go with vintage-looking tiles. Ceramic tiles are great for this as they come in vintage designs. The durability of ceramic makes them the best choice as floor tiles. You can also arrange them in patterns popular during the old days to make them look more vintage.
