Often within the busiest rooms of the home, fireplaces are a charming focal point especially so during the winter months and as the nights begin to draw in. Whether you favour a traditional scheme or a more contemporary setting, there are a number of different ways to use tiles to style your fireplace to reflect your personal taste. To help you on your way, we have put together a list of ideas that will inspire you to create a hearthside worthy of cosying up to all year round!*
For an understated and elegant look, our Metro Brick tile adds a minimalist, industrial look to fireplace surroundings. Making the perfect choice for those looking for something contemporary with an urban twist, the four new designs from Metro Brick create a striking feature point in any setting and we love how they combine beautifully with natural textures, neutral chevron flooring and soft faux fur rugs. For maximum impact, consider tiling your Metro Brick feature wall vertically from floor to ceiling, the end result won’t disappoint!
Pared Back Pattern
When it comes to choosing the perfect tile, pattern plays a key factor. Ideal for the modern home, the eye-catching pattern of our Cuban White Star tiles delivers a dramatic effect when used across both the hearth and the surrounding of the fireplace. The playful geometric patterns work wonderfully in both contemporary and traditional environments, especially when combined with textured accessories, botanical pops and quirky lights.
Although still dramatic, a deep dutch blue brings a light and fresh feel to living room interiors. Creating an inviting yet stylish space, our Cuban Black Block tile works beautifully when paired with a rich colour palette, period accents and Delft-inspired details. We especially love how the geometric patterns and cool colour palettes combine with the gilded framework and chinaware, lightening the mood of the whole room. Complete the look with the beautiful White Gloss metro tile from our popular Poitiers collection.
If you're looking to create a beautifully classic scheme, white tiles in different formats and finishes are guaranteed to help you achieve this. A combination of herringbone tiles as the fireplace backdrop and marble-effect glossy tiles on the hearth creates an elegant focal point perfect for any traditionally styled home. Especially in the colder months, when all we need is a hot drink in front of a warm fireplace, the herringbone style adds a hint of subtle pattern to the walls whilst delivering a sense of relaxation. Our Arles Snow tile brings an element of interest and our Marmori Calacatta White marble effect tiled hearth adds timeless luxury, whilst finishing touches of frosted greenery completes the scene for a truly elegant winter season.
Three Dimensional Drama
Create a dramatic tonal backdrop to your fireplace with Tiffany split-face décor tiles inspired by the organic aesthetic of natural stone. These wall tiles are an ideal way to add dimension to your wall, whilst drawing the eye to your feature fireplace.
The fireplace is a safe retreat, a place of warmth and comfort from the chaos of the world outside. Decorating the surrounding area with tiles is the perfect opportunity to showcase your true sense of style to family and friends. Whether it’s with bold patterning or simple tiles in a neutral colour palette, there are many ways to transform these areas with an inviting aesthetic - and just in time for the festive season!
