Tiles turn heads, and have been used throughout the centuries to decorate homes. 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. One key way to liven up any interior space is to use tiles that have a design of special interest – they’re not just a block colour, but have textures, variations and patterns.
With decisions to make between colours, size and placement, bringing your chosen style to life with a true design statement takes careful consideration. Working with Gemini Tiles, they’ve pulled together a top tips list to help you choose your perfect tiles:
Use Patterned Floor Tiles
Using patterned floor tiles is a great way to introduce a decorative touch into your home and inject personality into your design scheme. Whether you’re looking to bring a vintage twist to a country kitchen, a bold statement to a modern bathroom, or you want to give your home an arabesque Moroccan vibe, patterned floor tiles offer a fun solution for everyone. Their Victorian Heritage collection of traditional ceramic tiles is perfect for making a great first impression.
Create A Feature Wall With Tiles
A bold way to create 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 colour. Tiles can be used to create a feature wall that is distinctive, whether through intricate, detailed tiles or large maximalist patterns. Their Frame range features twelve unique patterns fitting seamlessly into one larger tile and can be used on any wall in the home.
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 Their 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 Their mosaic range can also be used to embellish floors.
Make A Statement Border 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. They offer a range of natural border tiles to bring depth and character to your room.
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 Their Rock collection and Tiffany collection for inspiration.
