Aspect Tiles Accent Laundry Room’s Clean Look

Doing laundry typically isn’t most people’s idea of fun, but doing it in a beautiful, clean space makes it more tolerable.

So when Nicole was building her home, she knew she wanted to incorporate Aspect tiles that reflect her design aesthetic.

She chose Aspect Mini Subway tiles in Frost as one of those materials. The glass tiles feature peel and stick installation and are an easy way to add style to any space.

“I was going for clean look for my laundry room, but wanted to mix in my farmhouse style and have it flow well with the rest of the house,” she explains. “I love the look of subway tile. The kitchen has a ceramic herringbone and I wanted to keep the look similar, but also have it stand out on its own. I like the smaller version of the subway look with these Aspect tiles. The glass was so clean.”

Nicole’s farmhouse style home features traditional accents.

“I have a lot of old Victorian plumbing fixtures in my kitchen and baths mixed with the farmhouse look. We also brought in a craftsman look with the exterior, as well as the interior trim and doors,” she says.

Nicole loves the way her laundry room turned out. “I thought the product was great, and the tile installer said it was very easy to work with.”

Add Curb Appeal with Magnetic Garage Hardware

Steph and Vicki, our friends at the Mother Daughter Projects blog, have done it again – making big changes quickly and inexpensively to Steph’s house, this time with our magnetic garage hardware.

Steph wanted to add some curb appeal to her home but didn’t want to spend a lot of time and money on the project. The recent run of warm, sunny weather in February spurred her to tackle her garage home improvement project.

We provided them with two styles of our Creative Hardware accents. Each set includes 2 door handles and 4 hinges equipped with ultra-strong neodymium magnets. No drilling is necessary and they simply snap into place. The handles and hinges are made of durable injection-molded plastic that resists flaking, rusting or staining. They release with 10 pounds of pressure, making them perfect for households with kids and pets.

“The application of the new magnetic garage hardware was as simple as putting a magnet on the refrigerator,” Steph says.

The duo also removed some dated insets from her garage windows, and washed the door with an outdoor cleaner to give it a refreshed look.

What a difference just a few simple changes make, all in the span of an afternoon! Be sure to read about the project here and let us know what you think.

How to Re-purpose Leftover Tiles Creatively

Do you have leftover materials from a home improvement project you’ve completed? If so, consider the ways you can re-purpose leftover tiles creatively.

Scottie, of Saved By Scottie, was inspired to turn trash into treasure with some leftover backsplash tiles in a tile trivet project.

She asked us for materials for an upcoming appearance at the Philly Home Show, and she chose our 3×6 Aspect tiles in metal and glass for a trivet project for home show attendees. She also partnered with Pure Bond plywood, and they supplied plywood for the trivet backing. Each workshop attendee was allowed to create their own trivet to bring home.

Read her blog post here, and check out our Aspect brand site to see all the different colors and materials offered for your next backsplash project.

Of course, you may have extra tiles from another project. Even flooring tiles can be creatively re-used. This Apartment Therapy blog post describes 13 different ideas to pursue.
