Art on Tiles has been in business for more than thirty years, creating bespoke tile commissions for kitchens, ranging from a large tile mural behind an Aga to a basin splashback or just a few tile borders or single decor tiles to add interest to an area of plain glazed tiling.
Here, a bespoke hand painted panel has been inserted into a plain glazed area, with a simple border as a frame.
No two kitchens are the same and no two clients are the same so considering a bespoke tile commission is a wise choice for the perfect finishing touch.
Tiles as a backdrop to a stove or Aga are ideal as they are washable, robust, waterproof and heatproof. They also offer an opportunity to create a focal point within the room and draw attention to a handsome stove or range cooker. Here the client wanted to display a view over a nearby valley, featuring red kites and the rolling hills of the Cotswolds. A bespoke commission is the perfect opportunity to choose a design which is personal to you.
A good, local tile fitter will have no difficulty with installing a bespoke commission. The tiles are supplied numbered and with a clear plan for guidance.
As a washable, waterproof decorative finish, tiles are the obvious choice here and can be decorated with a simple border, a mixture of plain and single decor or even a decorative panel to tie in with other tiled areas within the room.
Handpainted tiles as a worktop
For this use we would recommend a flat, modern tile rather than a rough, uneven rustic type and we would also suggest minimal grout lines as these create a more practical and hygienic surface.
Here, some simple and traditional blue and white Delft-style tiles have created a fresh, pretty effect in a stove alcove. The client has personalised it with initials and dates which are special to them.
