Unearth the natural beauty of Decorated Earth.
Decorated Earth was formed in Sydney 26 years ago. Husband-and-wife team Gayle and Hank (pronounced hunk) have centered the business on a passion for working with stunning, durable and ever-evolving materials.
Hank and Gayle made the decision to abandon their city life after discovering the unrivaled beauty of the Byron Bay region of New South Wales 24 years ago. It was here that Dutch-born Hank felt he had found paradise. Months of traveling around Australia had given him a taste for a more rural lifestyle and in this land of pristine beaches, rivers, lush green valleys and towering rain forests he had discovered God’s Own Country. Embracing the Byron Bay region and its community was a winning decision for Gayle and Hank, their family and growing business.
A commitment to research and training together with years of experience have made Hank an expert in the tiling field. He and his team pride themselves on providing exceptional results with a complete range of tiling materials including glass mosaics, natural stone, glass ceramic, porcelain, pebbles, antique and reconstituted tiles.
Each of these products has unique properties, making them suitable to different applications and requiring expert handling and knowledge.
Helping clients achieve outstanding results is the ultimate goal for Hank and Gayle and the team at Decorated Earth.
Living spaces are no longer confined to indoors. Our beautiful climate makes the Northern Rivers region ideal for outdoor living areas including large patio entertaining areas, sweeping verandas, artistic garden features and sumptuous pool and spa retreats.
Tiles are the natural choice of flooring for outdoor entertaining areas as they are durable, easy to care for and offer a virtually limitless combination of styles, shapes, textures, colours and patterns.
Decorated Earth specialise in creating unique designs which can add flair to any outdoor project.
New large-format tiles are the latest trend for floor areas. They can seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor areas. Decorated Earth specialise in laying large rectified tiles with the smallest joints possible (approximately 1.5mm) – bear in mind that large format tiles make joins more apparent, so keeping grout lines to a minimum helps achieve a flawless surface.
The current trend toward large-format tiles creates magnificent entryways and helps create a feeling of space.
Available in a variety of finishes, including polished and non-polished porcelain, large-format tiles create a seamless floor finish.
The appearance of a wide tile expanse is enhanced by minimal grout lines.
Consider extending large-format tiles into outdoor living areas for a stunning, integrated finish.
While popular large-format tiles are effective in hallways, kitchens and living areas
they can create difficulties in smaller areas such as bathrooms and laundries.
When designing with large tiles in a bathroom, the position of the floor waste is crucial
and sometimes the introduction of a long drain is necessary due to the fall of the floor.
An alternate solution is to use a smaller format tile (going from perhaps a 600mm to a 300mm tile) in wet areas.
Bathrooms are also great areas of a house to introduce special wall and floor textures,
perhaps through the use of feature pebbles or mosaic tiles.
POOLS AND SPAS
Tiles are a standout choice around pools, spas and outdoor bathrooms. Choosing a non-porous, stain resistant and salt-safe non-slip product will ensure you have a hard wearing, beautiful finish. The two main tiles used in outdoor applications and ceramic and porcelain. Both have different qualities and it’s important to choose a product that’s durable enough to be used in an outdoor setting.
For safety reasons pool and spa tiles need to be classified as non-slip.
This doesn’t mean that the tile must have a rough surface, however, as some of the smoothest finishes are actually some of the most non-slip.
When designing the perfect pool, spa or outdoor bathroom the only limit is your imagination.
Decorated Earth specialise in working with your vision to create a truly unique and relaxing space.
