4 Ways Tiles Can Make an Impact
Tiles can have an incredible effect on your home or work space. Neutral colour schemes have had their heyday and vibrant colour schemes continue to be a popular choice for making a statement about a personality or work ethic.
Whether it’s a vibrant mosaic feature wall or an intricately tiled floor, patterned tiling is an interior trend set to continue to rise.
1. Feature walls
Feature walls are a fantastic creative design tool. They can balance the shape of a room and also create a real talking and focal point.
Interior designers have been using wall tiles to form stunning features as a go-to for years. One of the advantages of a feature wall, particularly in a small space, is that you don’t need many tiles to really make a splash. Monochrome patterns from ranges such as our ceramic Mattone tiles or bold geometric patterns made from our Jasper or Fading ranges make it easy to create an eye-catching centrepiece or dramatic statement.
2. Defining an area
If you want to add some definition to an area, look no further than our mosaic collections. Whether used on the wall or floor, these tiles look incredible and allow you to be really individual with your choice of design. For a touch of elegance, glass mosaics reflect light incredibly well and help illuminate the space. You can also use the mosaics to create a separate area within a bathroom or a bath panel, creating a real 'wow' statement, and something a bit different from the norm. You will, of course, need to ensure that the mosaics are suitable for use on the floor, and within a high volume water area, such as a wetroom.
3. Small Spaces
Small rooms are the perfect place for trying new things and experimenting with being a bit bolder with your tile choices. Example of good rooms is cloakrooms and hallways. Embracing a dark interior will make for a real impact and a deep colour scheme will create a calming atmosphere. Our Metal and Iso ranges are ideal for this as they add a touch of glamour and a unique style.
It is also advisable to maximise a smaller space by selecting flooring tiles that are larger than average to give an illusion of more space.
4. Marble tiles for a luxurious finish
Look no further than marble if you want to add some luxury to your bathroom. Sleek and timeless, marble cannot fail to add a touch of luxury to your space. Our Firestone range will provide plenty of inspiration. Bear in mind that marble has to be sealed annually and cleaned regularly to avoid stains, scratches and moisture damage. However, if you can undertake this aspect, the results are worth it. See our Marmi range for something a little different.
