That may well be one of the most satisfying aspects of the consultation phase of the tiling segment of your home remodeling or redecorating project. You get to tell your tiling consultant your story just the way you would like it to be told. While he is already sitting with dozens of batches of finished tiles in his yard lot, he really would like to hear what you have in mind this time. It is not as though he is ever going to be challenged.
It is just that as both an artist and artisan he will be enjoying the spirit in which he must work. As he prepares your first batch of custom ceramic tiles he has had ample opportunity to exercise his creative spurts to the full. His creativity does not cause him to lose control of his technical work. Having given him the lay of the land (your bathroom, kitchen, living room, patio, whichever other space you have in mind), he still needs to take good care of his measurements.
Perhaps as early as the consultation phase, he will have attempted to be as gentle about it as possible. There is just no other way of putting it. These ceramic tiles can be rather temperamental, and if they have been custom designed and prepared, perhaps even more so. In order to retain its integrity as an artistic material, a battle of sorts will be ongoing against the elements. Materials have been solidified to allow the tiles to weather all temperatures.
By the time the final delivery is made, you will also be given a detailed manual on how to take good care of all your ceramic tiles. You will want them to last, won’t you.
