After making a splash in the fashion and interior design industries, blush tones are rapidly becoming the new neutral tone joining the ranks of grey, beige, white and charcoal. Filling any space with a playful sense of wonder whether, it be a commercial or residential project, blush tiles make for the perfect pairing with several different trending and classic finishes, from metallic brass and gold to white marbles, blonde timbers and even terrazzo surfaces.
Different Types of Blush Tiles & How to Use Them
Exploring all the many options available, there are many incredibly stylish variations of the classic blush toned tiles available, from softer pinks to dusty rose and sugary-sweet pastels, with several different formats, finishes and shapes to choose from.
Modern or Contemporary Interiors
Used as a bathroom tile in the example below, the soft blush mosaic floor is paired with a timber vanity unit and matte black tapware, creating an ultra-modern look in this stylish space. This design scheme suits a more modern or contemporary home, pairing with sleek, concrete tiles to complete the look.
Being a porcelain tile, these mosaics will not require ongoing maintenance or sealing as porcelain finishes are renowned for their non-porous nature, durability and longevity making them the perfect choice for your new modern bathroom tile.
Classic and Timeless
The soft pink tones of blush tiles are also a shade that features in natural materials, such as marble. Offering a rich and opulent finish in your project, natural marble creates a timeless elegance in design, perfectly pairing with metallic gold finishes, Carrara marble surfaces and soft, warm white features. This look lends itself extremely well to classically styled interiors, creating a more traditional and affluent vibe.
A luxurious marble mosaic tile, the Rose Stone Range features warm pink tones combined with subtle grey and white touches to create a timeless colour choice. This collection includes several different formats, from subway tiles to pennyrounds and even hexagons to suit any style of interior design scheme.
Being a natural stone, marble is a porous material, requiring sealing both immediately after installation and then every couple of years or so thereafter. It is however, very simple to clean and maintain with proper use, creating a truly ageless finish in any project, exuding an elegant and sophisticated charm.
A transitional styled interior combines the old with the new to create a unique and enduring design scheme. Featuring traditional shaker style kitchen cabinetry, this stunning design pairs traditional elements with modern finishes, using a mini blush penny round mosaic tile as the splashback and a show-stopping concrete-look engineered stone benchtop for a soft, organic touch.
Our Moda mosaic tile collection includes a selection of mini penny rounds, as well as stylish geometric tiles made of enamelled glass that is suited for use on both floors and walls.
Transitional interior design schemes offer up the very best of both worlds: the warmth and unique character of vintage stylings paired with contemporary finishes to create an exclusive style with endless appeal. Blush tiles make for the perfect feature in a transitional styled interior, thanks to their ability to create a neutral toned backdrop, allowing feature design elements to stand out.
Rustic interior design styles enhance a space’s character, creating a warm and welcoming vibe. Handmade tiles are the perfect surface finish in these schemes as each piece can vary from the other, creating a distinct patchwork of tiles that blends together for a tactile finish.
The uniquely textured and organic shaping of the handmade Arabian collection creates a warm, rustic element in your interior design scheme. An authentic Moroccan tile, this range is completely handmade using centuries old traditional techniques, celebrating each piece’s distinct characteristics and qualities.
A rustic styled interior makes use of natural and organic textures, from lighter toned timbers to rough finished concrete surfaces.
