How to be creative with square tiles

Square tiles have seen a recent boom in popularity thanks to their retro-inspired aesthetic. From bathrooms to kitchens, they provide a playful yet chic atmosphere in the home. With the versatility to be styled in a range of ways, square tiles can work across almost any style of décor. To find out more on how to be creative with square tiles in your own home, read on to discover our top styling tips.

Double up on colour

The pairing of two different colours makes for a truly eye-catching look and feel, particularly when incorporated through a square tile. The glossy and authentic appeal of our Nador tiles in Pink and Mint offer a beautiful zellige style, providing a wow-factor and leaving guests green with envy.

Here at CTD Tiles we are big fans of the subtle contrast that can be achieved with pastel green and blush pink. This colour combination works especially well when complemented with accent pieces in similar hues.

Pop in some pattern

A square patterned tile will always leave an interior looking visually striking and full of character. Our Cuban and Contrasti tiles are available in a range of statement designs that are certain to make an impact within any space. Suitable for a range of interiors, the tiles match with a minimalist, neutral palette as well as the bold sentiments of maximalism – the perfect in-between option.

Walk on wonder by incorporating patterned tiles on your kitchen or bathroom floor to create a geometric statement that encourages the ‘too much is never enough’ sentiment. Alongside our playful patterned option, our Contrasti tiles are also available in a variety of block colours and when these two are placed together, limitless looks can be attained.

Working especially well in bathrooms, the Contrasti Tappeto Ottanio tile works harmoniously when used in the centre of the bathroom with the plain Contrasti Ottanio tile acting as a border. The result is a scheme that is truly distinctive and eye-catching.

Incorporate a statement splashback

Creating a statement splashback has never been easier. Both functional and an effective way to showcase your style, your backsplash can be the most eye-catching part of the kitchen - so why not enhance this by incorporating eyecatching square tiles?

Break away from the norm and try something new by mixing-and-matching a variety of different patterns. Our Havana and Cuban square tiles for example work well together to create an eclectic combination. Complete the space with organic materials such as wood, along with fresh foliage, to give contrast to the scheme.

Another option is choosing one tile colour for your splashback and then incorporating different variations of the shade for a textured and colour-drenching scheme. Create this look with our square Nador Sky tiles, where the soft pastel tones allow an interior to pop, particularly when placed against inky blue cabinetry with accessories to complement.
