Tiles installed in your house can provide stylish tones, patterns, and textures in your bathroom and other key areas of your home. White tiles are a classical option and always look amazing. But when you start to explore your options, there is a fantastic range of painted, patterned and colourful tiles available for you to choose from.
Try an Accent Wall
Generally, when you think of an accent wall, it’s using wallpaper or paint, but why not create one using your favourite tile? Personalise a room with your creativity, add tiles to highlight a wall, and make an impact in your space.
You can even combine mediums such as wallpaper, tiles, and pattern matching for a more stylish look.
Make Your Stairs Pop
Add some colour or your favourite pattern to the stair rise. It’s an area usually overlooked, so adding small patterned tiles will personalise and create a stunning visual impact in your space.
Tile Your Kitchen Splashback
Your splashback can be a creative focal point in your kitchen. It needs to be functional, but why not make it beautiful at the same time? Ceramic and porcelain tiles are ideal in the kitchen because they are more stain resistant than their stone or marble counterparts, and you can find a design that suits you because there are so many available.
Update Your Fireplace
If your fireplace looks tired and dated, a simple way to update it is by changing the tiles to something new and fresh.
Three things you need to take into account when tiling your fireplace.
- The best way to attach tiles is to cement backer boards that are heat resistant.
- Grout can be stained by ash from the fireplace. To avoid this, use an epoxy grout that is more stain resistant.
- The tiles that you use need to have a rating for heat applications.
Make your fireplace a feature point of the room with a stylish makeover.
Inlay Tiles into Furniture
Adding tiles to a favourite piece of furniture is a great way to use leftover tiles or mosaic pieces while adding splashes of colour and pattern. Kitchen islands, coffee tables, shelving, bed heads, and vanity cabinets are just some of the areas that can be personalised using tiles.
Your Home Entryway
Make a bold statement with tiles in your home entryway. Greet people with an arrangement that is uniquely you, either on the wall or floor, that introduces people to your personal style.
Natural stone or patterned tiles are ideal for welcoming people into your home.
Outdoor Entertainment Areas
Do you have an outdoor living space that needs a lift? You can add tiles to the area around your pool, create an attractive feature wall, or even line a pond or water feature with attractive tiles.
The same tiles from your kitchen splashback inside can be used in an outdoor kitchen, or tiles used inside as flooring can also be used outside to create a sense of continuity.
