Their golden glow perfectly sets off the pale walls, and harmoniously ties every building into its neighbours and their surrounding scenery. These production methods produced significant variation in shape and size, which, although it created charm for homeowners, caused trouble for roofers.
To combat this, roofers gradually adopted new techniques, such as laying PVC plastic sheets on the roof first, then covering them with rows of tiles all facing the same way. Synthetic composites or even metal sheeting can be styled to look just like traditional tiles from a distance, but your budget at builder will thank you for making the switch. It’s not mandatory for a Spanish home to have a red roof, and there are still plenty of ways to make your Casa feel authentic if you choose a different kind of tile. Not only do they look clean and fresh, but stucco is easy to maintain and the pale shade will reflect the sunlight away from your home, keeping it cooler indoors.
Commonly used on stair risers and kitchen backsplashes, hand painted ceramic tiles are a functional way to bring ornate decoration in your home. Terraces , patios and courtyards are much easier to maintain than a garden, but lining them with succulents in terracotta planters, or installing a soothing water feature as a focal point will still give you a space to be at one with nature. Balustrades and window grilles are transformed from functional features into scrolling columns of beauty, while sconces and chandeliers cast warm and magnificent shadows across a room. Full-sized and Juliet balconies mean you can open your doors to let the fresh air breeze through your home on a hot afternoon, and provide a private, tranquil spot to relax in the warm summer evening.
