In the kitchen or bathroom, and even in the living room, the use of ceramics is taken pride in because of its ability to add to the aesthetic appeal of these three important rooms. Artistic journeymen can always apply their mind to customer’s ideals when consulted. While they may have a full catalogue of what they have managed to achieve with a single decorative ceramic tile, they are more than amenable in complying with their customer’s lofty or dreamy ideas.
But have another look at these talismanic designers’ works of art and you will begin to appreciate that decorative idealizing can go just so far. At some point, practicality must take over. Form and function is looked at very closely, and it is here that the ceramic tile artist now applies the engineering side of his mind. The curvaciousness and overall shape of the ceramic tile can have a direct impact on everything and anything that would usually take place in the bathroom, kitchen or living room.
Ceramic tiles and you may not notice this so much at a glance will be further apart from each other when placed outdoors over a patio surface. This needs to take precise care of external and room temperatures, bearing in mind that ceramic materials will expand and contract as temperatures vary. The next time you see one or two odd-shaped cracked tiles, then you will know someone forgot to apply his mind to exact measurements.
Discerning home decorators will not be going to that ‘someone’. They would much rather spend more time with an artisan who values and takes pride in combining artistic vision with engineering ingenuity. They seem to like the fact that these gentlemen are non-judgmental and good listeners too.
