  2. separate inserts of decorative tiles.

A significant difference between decorative inserts and panels is that the latter has a “complete plot” and a general thematic focus.

  • geometrically correct composition of several tiles;
  • free-size panels, free style, no geometry;
  • mosaic panel.

Clean lines combined with a spectacular mosaic panel

The keynote of the room will be tiles with flowers for the bathroom. A vertical panel will raise the ceiling, and a horizontal panel will expand the existing boundaries of the room.

A panel in the form of one large tile will fit into a small space.

  • primer;
  • ammonia;
