Decorative tiles can be used in many different ways throughout the home where you are looking to add a vibrant burst of colour and pattern. Feature tiles offer the opportunity to explore more creative design solutions in the home while highlighting key areas in a space such as the kitchen or bathroom. There are many ways to decorate using tiles from creating a stunning feature in the kitchen or bathroom to cladding your fireplace. We explore some of our favourite decorative tiling solutions that will add an elegant finishing touch to your interior design scheme.

Bathroom Feature Walls using Decorative Tiles

When choosing your bathroom’s feature wall, consider which design element you are wanting to highlight. This could be a large shower area, a luxurious freestanding bathtub or a stylish vanity unit. The wall directly behind these items is usually the best choice as a feature wall. Decorative tiles allow you to add a bold sense of colour, shape or pattern in this part of your bathroom design scheme whether you opt to use a luscious natural stone tile, a pattern tile or a mosaic tile feature. Balance out the look of your feature wall tiles with more subtle, neutral tones in the remainder of your bathroom’s wall tiles to create a dramatic and harmonious look in your overall design scheme.

These tile collections are often available in an endless range of colour options from traditional aquatic blue and green tiles to modern black tiles, purple tiles and everything in between! When creating your new pool’s design, you have the option of adding your own unique touch to your decorative pool tile selection with options available that will allow you to customise not only the pool’s colour but also allow you to add stylish patterns and artwork with the use of mosaic tiles.
