How To Make A Statement With Tiles In Your Home

When people think of tiles in relation to interior design, often their first and only thought is practicality. Most of the time, tiles are needed in kitchens as a splash protector for the walls, or in a new bathroom where paint or wallpaper just aren't long-term solutions.

This conventional thinking is fine, as mosaic tiles are ideal in both rooms for exactly these purposes. Ultimately they are easy to clean and are water resistant.

But Tiles Can Also Make A Statement

But Tiles Can Also Make A Statement

Picture a kitchen with magnolia walls and state-of-the-art black and silver appliances. You've just moved into your new studio apartment and you're looking to personalise the kitchen area. However, you're a busy professional without the time or energy for a head-to-toe interior renovation project.

Picking a bold and modern tile pattern to fit underneath your hanging kitchen units can be the ideal way to add a splash of personality to an otherwise sleek but emotionless area. Let's imagine you pick out some kitchen mosaic tiles in a warm red and orange design. They don't have to dominate the area – in fact, in terms of wall space, your kitchen will still be 90 per cent beige. But with this splash of colour you can transform a large area into a vibrant and welcoming space to cook, entertain guests and relax.

Similarly, let's look at bathrooms. It's daunting to go too bold, so why not try bathroom mosaic tiles in a faux random pattern, where base colours like cream, off-white or light grey are intermingled with sparse bolder colours? It doesn't even have to be radical and can still fit neatly within the overall colour scheme of the room. You've sanded down and varnished natural floorboards, and have an upcycled wooden medicine cabinet and shelving units. All your cream tiles need are some slightly darker and stronger colours – a chestnut brown here, a mahogany there – to really vitalise the space. It can be done subtly and tastefully to imbue that element of je ne sais quoi in an otherwise simple living space.

Add Some Spotlights

Finally, lighting and tiles are a match made in heaven. Remember that modern kitchen with the hearty red tiles? Add some warm yellow spotlights to finish the look and watch the tiles come alive. You'll have created a personal and engaging look for minimal effort. It's a DIY shortcut that doesn't have to cost the earth in terms of time or money.
