15 Stunning Tile Design Ideas
Courtesy of www.freshome.com. Tile is a great choice when you’re looking for something durable and unique. Nowadays it can even look like hardwood flooring, complete with the grooves and textures, but offers a lower maintenance surface that doesn’t need refinishing.
When used as back-splashes in a kitchen or bathroom, they can be incredibly creative and add an element in your space that was previously contrived or out of place in another part of the space.
We’ve come a long way from the basic white 16″ squares of the past. Here are 15 tile design ideas to inspire you:
Mid-century modern tile design ideas
A mid-century modern dining room wall can be finished in a white retro tile to add texture. To the opposite end, a vibrant retro aqua tile backsplash will offset crisp white cabinets and yellow pops of colour. A geometric pattern appears 3D due to the shadowing of the design and is a more obvious way to add texture.
Textured tile design ideas
White honeycomb tile running floor to ceiling in front of a marble field tile in a contemporary bedroom adds a sophisticated look and makes the wall appear larger. Soft waves carved into large format tiles will add a peaceful, spa-like feel to a contemporary bathroom. Creating an indoor-outdoor area can be finished in a dimensional tile to create light and shadow textures from the skylight above.
A metallic herringbone-pattern tile in gold and silver, gives a very upmarket feel and elevates a space without using too much of the colour. Make sure you find a tile or material that is durable enough to work as a backsplash or floor tile. To this end, Salvocorp’s range of products are durable and impervious to bacteria making them ideal for splash backs. They’re also available in a range of colours and textures, including metallics.
New kitchen backsplash tile ideas
A small floral repeating pattern will softens the hard edges in a chef’s kitchen of a hotel or guesthouse, while a powder blue, brown and white backsplash pattern gives a transition open kitchen a sense of depth and interest. If you prefer a more clean look, wall tiles will warm up the masculine and contemporary look of a kitchen. If you’re feeling adventurous, a kitchen’s tricolour tile pattern ties in all the colour elements perfectly.
Modern floor tile design ideas
A kitchen tile floor is one of the easiest surfaces to clean and maintain; and can be tied together with the wall tiles. Black and white marble tiles can form a stripe pattern on the floor and in a modern grid pattern on the bathroom wall.
Bathroom tile design ideas
If you’re really into bright colours, a vivid turquoise raised elliptical tile works well with a cherry wood bathroom vanity. Layers of monochromatic tiles in the form of distressed wood planks, marble squares and octagonal shapes can also create an understated yet elegant bathroom.
