3. Kitchen splash backs

Using patterned tiles can look just as effective in small spaces.  Use this opportunity to tie in existing colours or go all out to create drama and a talking point.

5. Monochrome pattern

Create an ultra modern ambience with a monochrome theme.  Use strong graphic patterns to create drama and a show-stopper feature with your tiles. It’s an interesting fact, that monochrome and neutral colours are more popular to our clients in Melbourne ahead of the other states.

6.  Get Courageous

Using patterned tiles on walls, floors and even ceilings sounds a little extreme but if you have a small room to tile, this could be your opportunity to create a space that oozes individuality and not to mention a little wow factor.
