The trend for brick tiles in the home has become increasingly popular in recent years. So much so that we are now looking for new and exciting ways to introduce them into the home. We’ve seen metro brick tiles placed in chevron patterns, laid in brick formation, stacked with straight grout lines, and in striking colours.

With so many different ways to position these tiles, it can often be tricky deciding which would look best in your home, so we have pulled together all the ways you can incorporate the metro tile look into your home. Take a scroll for everything you need to know!

Create Colour Combinations

Don’t ever feel limited to using just one colour of metro tile. Inject multiple colours into your home and maximise your room’s dimensions with a contemporary twist. Make an even bigger statement by using a striking contrasting grout and pair the look with designer finishing touches to create a distinctive vibe.

If you’re incorporating the metro tile trend into your bathroom, you may feel like floor-to-ceiling tiles will make the room feel a little clinical which is why it’s a great idea to mix two different colour tiles together to add depth to your space. Our Poitiers tiles in Mint and White work beautifully together and will add the traditional yet designer statement you’re looking for. Pair it with our Havana tiles on the floor, classic accessories and pastel shades for a look that will never go out of style.

Form a Herringbone Design

For an understated yet elegant look, position your metro tiles in a herringbone or chevron pattern. This formation works especially well as a splashback in your kitchen or even as a feature wall throughout. You can go for bold colours such as our Poitiers Rose Pink or go for a deeper shade such as our sleek Azure Blue, for added contrast to subtle interior schemes. Pair with beautiful cabinetry and hints of brushed brass for a space that will turn heads as soon as you step through the door.

Position Your Metro Tiles Vertically

For a truly streamlined and classic appeal, consider positioning your tiles vertically to enhance smaller spaces such as bathrooms, to give the effect of a larger space. Our Crackle tiles in particular work exceptionally with this kind of look. The delicate crackle-effect finish also works beautifully in a herringbone, diagonal, brick-bond or classic linear design and can be used within ensuites and bathrooms- providing an effortless look to modern interiors. Consider combining with dark wooden surfaces, smooth gold brassware and contemporary accessories for a scheme that boasts a designer appeal.

Our beautiful Dyroy tiles in Blue and Green are also an ideal choice for this style arrangement. The contemporary shade variations found across the range will bring an instant refreshing update to interiors– delivering the perfect backdrop to sleek worktops and cabinetry.

So there you have it, everything you need to know on how to incorporate this striking tile trend into the home. As a classic tile, the metro tile will never go out of fashion however you choose to position it. Whether you are utilising them half way up the walls or laying them in a different style completely, there are so many ways you can be creative with this beautiful tile style.
