5 Ways to make the Right Impact with Tiles

Tiles turn heads. When it comes to designing a space in your home, choosing the right tile will have an enormous impact on the overall visual of the room. With decisions to make between colours, size and placement, bringing your chosen style to life with a true design statement takes careful consideration.

From a colourful kitchen splashback to a statement feature wall, the most stylish homes have a tiled area that really packs a punch. Here are five ways to make an impact with standout tiles:

1. Create a feature wall with tiles

A bold way to create an impact in any room, the feature wall is a favourite technique to make a statement in interior design. A feature wall creates a striking look and, contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t have to be just one block of colour. Tiles can be used to create a feature wall that is distinctive, whether through intricate, detailed tiles or large maximalist patterns. Our Frame range features twelve unique patterns fitting seamlessly into one larger tile and can be used on any wall in the home.

2. Mix and match with tiles

Create a completely bespoke piece of artwork in your home by mix and matching tiles, like the wall tiles from our Cuban range. Choose from six designs, featuring coordinating patterns. This is a creative way to smarten up an uninspiring room using tiles, and gives spaces a whole new personality. Brightly coloured ceramics, or tiles from our mosaic range can also be used to embellish floors.

3. Make a statement boarder with tiles

This is a great option for anyone wanting to create an impact without being too bold with your tiles. Use a tile border for a minimalist but still impactful aesthetic. To create a more unique look, contrast your border with other colours, patterns or textures. Using a tile border can direct the eye to certain areas of the room, and create a look of unity. We offer a range of natural border tiles to bring depth and character to your bathroom.

4. Create dimension with your tiles

Using tiles with different textured designs creates an interesting design, especially in contrast to other smooth walls or fixtures. Patterns and textures will energise a room, and inject it with some of that all-important wow factor – check out our Rock collection for inspiration.

5. Be bold with coloured tiles

To make a real impact with tiles, you can’t go wrong with bold colours, like those in our Reflections range. All too often, people prefer to stick to neutral or pastel colours – especially in the bathroom, where they match the white fixtures. However, when used strategically, bold colours can be use to create an eye-catching design to draw the eye and create a unique look.

We hope this list has inspired you to use tiles in your home! Not only are they a pleasure to look at, they are also hardwearing, practical and easy to clean. Create the bathroom you’ve always dreamed of by viewing our full tile range:
