Creative Tile Ideas

For decades humans have been mixing and baking the combination of sand, clay and water to create a flat surface to protect their feet and homes from the elements and time has given us endless inspiration for incorporating tile into our interiors. Who says tile should be banished to the bathroom? Take it out of hiding and let different surfaces throughout your house become the focal point. Read on for some inspiration to create a masterpiece (or two) in your own home.

Wall Tile

Whether your style is modern, coastal, bohemian or traditional, there are thousands of tiles out there that will suit your aesthetic. It’s a great way to create visual interest when there is a lack of interesting architecture. Using interesting tile on the wall is a practical alternative to wallpaper, especially where wallpaper runs the risk of peeling because of the high levels of humidity, or if you’re looking for something that can stand up to scuffing.

Contrasting Tile

In the bathroom, you have the opportunity to tile the entire room. We love the idea of using a different kind of tile on the walls than you have on the floor. The contrast created from using an array of colors, styles and sizes will create a walk-in jewel box that will add a punch of excitement to your morning ritual. You also can use tile to create designated spaces within large rooms in the form of a tile “rug” within the floor design. Whether it’s a welcoming pattern in the foyer that leads your guests down the hall or the look of a rug in front of your tub, using carefully chosen tile that accents the rest of your flooring is a sophisticated move.

That’s why we’re offering you quality porcelain and ceramic tiles at basically half the price.

CHOOSING SIZES

Conveniently, there are a variety of tiles starting from the small 3’’8 slab tiles to 24”48 slab tiles and a host of other sizes in between. It is observable though that there is a recent shift from smaller tiles to emphasis on large tiles.

You need to know what effect you want to achieve. Do you want to exude warmth, space or serenity?  If you want a room to appear larger, you might want to consider using larger tiles as it gives the semblance of a larger space and makes it appear larger.

It could most likely be the colours the room emits.  Colours have rules too! It is important to strike a balance between your personal taste and your colour choices.
