Designer Tile Job Completed in Luxury Vacation Rental

Home Stager with Foxy Interiors Inc. Lake Mary Florida



The Foxy Interiors crew recently completed a designer tile job in a gated community of a luxury vacation rental located in Kissimmee, Florida.  If you’re unfamiliar with the area, the property location is a stones-throw away from Disney World, International Drive, and the many vacation hot spots Central Florida has to offer.

The men did an interior re-paint using Navaho White on the walls and Pure White for the trim.  They completed a custom designer tile job at this location as well.  To begin, all the existing carpet and vinyl tile had to be removed.  The concrete floor in front of the glass sliders had to be chipped out to level it by adding fresh concrete.  The tile installation used DalTile in 18” porcelain, 2” insets in the entire living room and dining room, as well as zoning the spaces using a border tile taking on the appearance of dark walnut wood.  The three bathrooms were tiled in a white and beige 18” tile.  Three different grout colors were used to complete the tile job.  Aside from the four types of tile, what made this job particularly exceptional was the number of tile cuts.  The men had to first lay out the tile to decide which pieces would go where.  A diamond pattern was used which required cutting each 18” tile in half to align with the walls.  Each 18” tile had to be cut four times to accommodate the insertion of the 2” insets. Many time consuming cuts but the end result is spectacular as the photos below demonstrate.

“Foxy Interiors Inc. made our kitchen and living room redesign a reality. They were wonderful to work with every step of the way. We met with them on site to discuss our desire for a design “reset” and to review our options for reviving the space. Our home has modern lines but it lost its luster in a sea of dated wall and cabinet colors and clutter. They took in to account our likes and dislikes and offered many options for our consideration from paint colors and fabrics to finishes and textures. They developed a clear estimate per service offered. Their suggestions for enhancements made the biggest difference in the outcome of the redesign. For example, crown molding on the cabinets and an accent color for the breakfast nook resulted in an upscale redesign. We will definitely call on them again for their design and renovation expertise. We love our new space and highly recommend Foxy Interiors Inc. for your transformation! “

Cindy, thank you so much.  The property is indeed a lovely townhouse with its own private pool and overlooks a lake.  Can't beat that for accommodations.

This was a great improvement. I particularly like the wood accent and the color of the tile. Good information here.

Foxy Interiors knows what's happening, so I guess that would be you Marie.  Excellent tile work and wonderful transformation.  I'm impressed with your style and mono-chromatic look.

Hi Debbie, thank you. Tile is always a great choice for flooring, especially in Florida with all the sand and fun. Roger, I have to give credit where it's due. The investor for this property did a fabulous job of paint and materials selection....not to say, of course, that I couldn't do it as well. :-) He was so amazed that I told him he chose designer tile.
