We love our tiles. They are versatile and elegant and can ooze class if used right. There is a lot you can do with them. Butwith themarkets flooded with tiles of every conceivable material and color, picking the right ones is not easy.
Also, when it comes to doing up the home, using radical design ideas from the internet is scary. You would rather play it safe and opt for the boringly uniform tiles in your bathroom or kitchen.
We get it. Taking the plunge into the unknown is scary. But there is no need to worry. With these amazing mix-and-match tile ideas, you, too, can make your home look stunning. Let’s take a look.
1. Play with Shapes and Sizes
It’s easy to fall into the rut of sameness. More often than not, we go for a uniform spread of tiles across the board, leaving little room for imagination and creativity. But it need not be like this. Your tiles can go vertical, horizontal, or brick-layered, all in one area. If your shower stall has brick-layered tiles, go for vertical or horizontal lines of tiles in the sink area.
2. Drama with Color
Colors can create drama in your décor. You don’t need to go overboard with a variety of colors, as this can get overwhelming over time. Select a few complementary shades and weave exciting patterns.
3. A Dance of Patterned Tiles
Patterned tiles are exuberant and a great style statement. Again, it’s best to go easy with this theme. You get a better impact by restricting the use to select areas. These fabulous patterns can work on floorings or as a backsplash in the kitchen or other areas of your home.
4. It’s in the Placement
Playing around with sample tiles on your floor can give you a better idea about how you want to approach your décor. Thin slats are magical when contrasted with square tiles in the shower area. Herringbone patterns have a dramatic impact and are a great option too.
5. Amp the Look with Borders
A great way to define the design is by using a border. A tile border can work in umpteen ways. It can be used as a dado to divide the space, as a skirting, or on the top as a defining element. A border adds dimension to the décor and is something to consider when using tiles.
6. Mosaic Magic
Mosaic has been around for centuries and can never lose its charm. When paired with tiles, it can add oomph to your décor. There are many ways to play this look. How about a mural on the accent wall of your shower? Or you can go for mosaic flooring as a nice contrast to the tiles above. However you play it, this one is a winner.
7. Glossy Glamour
Glossy tiles are trending. A glossy backsplash is unbeatable when it comes to style. You can go for a matte tile finish for the flooring or go halfsies with the gloss and matte on your backsplash to rock the look.
8. Medley of Ideas
Why go for a pairing when you can mix more elements? A variety of effects can be achieved by mixing and matching several aspects to get a beautiful result. A medley of patterned tiles, plain colors, or tiles cut in slats can give your home a gorgeous look. You can let the patterns ride up to the ceiling in a narrow strip or let them flow along the wall as a border.
9. Terrazzo Tales
Terrazo tiles are not the old-fashioned affair we used to see in our grandma’s kitchen. Today terrazzo is a style statement, and you can achieve amazingly gorgeous looks with them. Pair them with plain tiles, either square or cut into slats and enjoy the beauty of these tiles.
It’s about being inventive. To make the job easier, you can draft ideas on paper with crayons to get a basic idea of how you want to place your tiles and what you are going to use. And if this exercise seems daunting, we are here to help you on this exciting journey. For this and other home decor ideas, log in to homebliss.in and be surprised!
