The last year has brought the world to view things differently. In many ways, this period has brought more of our attention to the importance of comfort, safety, and functionality in our own personal spaces. There are new challenges with home life and adding work life more prominently within our own dwellings.

With that, trying to find ways to creatively isolate office spaces from general living spaces to optimize concentration while still providing comfort for all is essential. There is also the challenge of providing spaces to encourage home study and be present as a parent to assist our children in their studies. The desire to feel at home and safe is a basic need, but once those needs are satisfied, we find ourselves looking for ways to personalize and beautify our spaces uniquely.

As we re-evaluate our personal spaces, it is good to know what resources exist to assist us in finding creative options to upgrade our homes to new functional standards and enjoyable surroundings. At Inside Out Architecturals, we look forward to assisting those who desire to make such improvements.

For centuries, builders and architects have used architectural elements to set their creations apart. Those who are successful dare to use elements differently, creating new standards and opening the door for further evolution. We are fortunate to live in a time when technology and creativity merge to create more comfortable, functional, and creative spaces. Inside Out Architecturals provides a variety of materials to create a custom experience for every individual.

Leah Wynn, owner of Inside Out Architecturals, developed an appetite for decorative and historical tile in college while conducting research for a fireplace and tile company. This research stimulated her desire to open a store in Utah where others could experience such unique details and component parts of architectural design.

A Penny for your thoughts…

Penny tiles are not just in vogue they are taking it one step further with Mosaic patterns in different materials such as stone and glass.

Texture it up…

You will find the same stones being used with different textures to create depth and pattern in the same space.

Large Format Porcelain…

Continue to excel with more realistic prints that force everyone to look twice to see if it is stone or the more durable, cleanable porcelain.

Pattern Pattern Everywhere…

Ceramic prints are back and in abundance bringing interest and excitement to vertical wall spaces. Whether you use a pattern on the floor or wall it is bringing dominance and focus to that space.
