How to Tile with Mosaic Tiles

Mosaic tiles bring you and your house a feeling of texture, energy and color. A long time ago, mosaic tiles have been installed in the kitchen and bathroom, and there are many reasons why they will stay as key position in designing and decorating house.

Materials which used in kitchen or bathroom should be durable, like ceramic, porcelain and marble; all of them are known to waterproof and heat-resisting. No matter used indoors or outdoors, wall tiles or floor tiles, you will find out that there a lot of ways that mosaic tiles can provide decorative as well as protective value.

Installing mosaic tiles

A lot of people think that it is hard to install mosaic tiles due to their smaller size and more tiles for every project. For this reason, when choosing the right fit and color for the mosaic tiles, the installation will be fairly easy. Okay, before beginning the installation, here wants to share some tips to make your project process more smoothly and successfully.

The following tools should be ready:
   Spirit level
   Trowels
   Tile adhesive
   Pencil
   Adhesive spreader
   Tile cutter
   Hammer
   Sponge or damp cloth
   Spacers
   Grout float
   Tape Measure
   Wood block

1.   After confirming your tiles style, then you should consider how many tile you will need. Many professional websites usually offer a tile calculator, where the buyers can enter their measurements of the walls and the mosaic tile size, and then the system will calculate the correct quantity of the tile they need. In case any unexpected happens like pieces break, we suggest to buy a little extra, that would be much helpful.

2.   For preparation, you need to make sure the level and all cracks have been filled. In an ideal world, surfaces without wallpaper or old tiles are a better place to install tiles. There is one way to remove the existing tiles: use a hammer and chisel. Use a pencil and a spirit level for marking the area, also the spirit level will help you to line up straight the tiles.

3.   If permitted, we suggest you to get the best adhesive and adhesive spreader. To ensure the adhesive will stay in a moisture environment longer, you should dust the walls down and apply a sealer for help. Apply the adhesive evenly to a thickness of about 3-5 mm.

4.   When installing the mosaic tiles, start from the center of surface, where with a tape measure, for any cuts or adjustments will be made for the edges. One thing important, make sure that you are installing the pattern of the tiles in a correct way. Use a wooden block and a mallet to tap the tiles lightly, just to make sure they’re level and firmly in place. Then use a wall scraper to remove the needless adhesive in the wall edges.

5.   Compared to bigger tiles, small mosaic tiles are easier to install when meeting some obstacles like light switches or electric plugs. The reason is because small mosaic tiles can be cut into several individual tiles with craft knife when it needs to fit along the edges.

6.   Before applying the grout, the adhesives needs at least 24 hours to get dry. Grouts are available in different colors; you should pay attention to the consistency between the powder and the grouts. To check if the grout is safe and clean to wipe, you can press your nail into the grout and if it could not be impressed, then use a cloth to remove the needless adhesive in the walls edges. To protect against moisture damage, occasionally spray water into the grout for two to three days.

For achieving the correct effect, mosaic tiles should be in harmony with the style and function of the other room or space of the house. In a lot of unique designs, mosaic tiles play a great role to provide much feasibility. Under normal circumstances, mosaic tiles is durable building elements, it can serve you for many years.

How to select stainless steel kitchen sinks

Kitchen sink is an indispensable and important element for kitchen landscape. If you don’t like the way your kitchen looks and plan to make remodeling, selecting kitchen sinks is an inevitable part. There are many materials for kitchen sinks, like stainless steel, fireclay, cast iron and more. Among these materials, stainless steel (304 type) kitchen sink is the most popular. Now let’s talk about how to choose a stainless steel kitchen sink. 




Here are the instructions:

1. Go to a home improvement physical store or search online store selling stainless steel kitchen sinks.

2.Decide how many bowls you need for your kitchen sink. If you have a large family or cook a lot, double bowls may be a good choice; while if you just live alone or don’t need to cook a lot, a single bowl will be much more suitable.

             

                               (Dawn ASU103 Single Bowl Sink) 


                        (Dawn ASU1081 Double Bowls Sink) 

3. Check the gauge. Gauge 16 to 18 is good.  The thicker the gauge, the more durable the stainless steel sink will be. (Dawn stainless steel sinks are with 16,18 and 20 gauge).

4.See the finish for stainless steel sinks. Stainless steel sinks with satin finish can last longer, however, those with glossy finish may easily get scratched. 

5. Check the dimensions of the stainless steel sinks and find how deep you need the sink to be. The deeper the sinks are, the more dishes or vegetables you can fit in them.

6.Decide what mounting method you need, top mount or under mount. Top mounted stainless steel sinks are easier to install, while under-mounted sinks are easier to maintain and look visually streamlined with the counter tops.

7.Write down your preferences and ask the store staff to see whether they have the sink you want when you don’t see it on display.

How to Select Kitchen Cabinets When You Remodel

It is not an easy thing to select a set of kitchen cabinet for your house, style, needs, budget and many factors should be considered carefully. Of course you would like to know the advantages of the materials, changes in design and custom cabinet options. Just narrow down the conditions to get an idea of what you actually and finally want, one by one. 

1st: Budget. 
You may not know, a kitchen offers you the greatest chance for investment. Why do we say that? Because, if you ever think of selling or renting your home, your kitchen will bring you the more money you’ve invested at your remodeling. People always say, a nice kitchen can be much expensive than you thought. Cabinet outlets and cabinet wholesalers usually provide economic cabinets, it saves your money if you budget is tight. Or you can select and purchase cabinet at online shops, as they sometimes have promotions like discount off, free shipping etc. 

2nd: Type
There are 3 types of cabinets when you select: stock, semi-custom and custom-made. Of course, cabinet in stock is the lowest price and custom-made ones will be the highest prices. 
All of them have their own advancements. 
For stock cabinet, they are made in popular styles and suitable for most kitchens, that are why they have large amount in stock and are ready to ship out, people will make their quick choice to select and purchase them in a short time. One important point you should know, you can get high discount off at physical stores as you can found the same type at online shops. The shortcoming of stock cabinets is that they are only one-size-fits by and large and you may waste much useful space. 
For semi-custom cabinet, it provides a competitive option for customers when they have more requirements. 
Compares to the first two types, custom-made cabinet have overwhelming preponderance. Though the price of custom-made cabinet is absolutely expensive than the others, customers who are willing to pay. Why? Simply, custom-made cabinet offers the opportunity to use your kitchen space to an extreme. Some stores or even online stores provide free kitchen design or layout design if your kitchen is going to have a big change. Through this option, any material or style can be selected freely based on your own idea to fit your kitchen. 

3rd: Materials
Factors like cost, style and usability should be taken into consideration when select materials for kitchen cabinets. The two main options for cabinet materials are laminate and wood. 
Compared with the latter, laminate is relatively inexpensive. Laminate used for kitchen cabinet is good, because it can be painted any color you want and easy to clean. For this reason, many apartment complexes choose these laminate cabinets as they are low-cost and easy to get an updated in color. However, it is difficult to repair once laminate cabinets are damaged. 
If you have higher budget and longer project time, wooden cabinet will be your absolutely choice. Wooden cabinets are sturdy and durable, and it fits any style, any color you want; and no doubt that they are expensive than laminate cabinets. 

4th: Style
You can, of course, choose the cabinet style as you like. Nevertheless, some style decisions depend on the cabinet material you choose, in other words, some difficulties like laminate cabinets do not allow to have panels connected with their fronts. 
When thinking about the style for your kitchen, you should take your home, your lifestyle, your budget, your time in consideration. 

5th: Usability
Kitchen is an often-used location, remodel your kitchen is the time to check what you have and what you do in your kitchen. If you have a lot of pots, pans and other kitchen wares, you may hope to have more kitchen shelves; if you have a lot of tableware you may hope to have more drawers that would be more convenient. Nowadays, there are other options like built-in pantries, oversized doors, and glass display to show your beautiful dishes, etc. Each function is based on your need and request.
