Why are Patterned Tiles so Popular Right Now?

Using patterned tiles in your interior design project creates a spectacular sense of character, movement and energy in the space, instantly breathing life into your design scheme. These unique qualities have given rise to the immense popularity of patterned tiles and paved the way for new and exciting techniques using tiles as a feature element to create truly show-stopping patterns in the home. Your selected pattern can be as muted or as loud as you prefer while always making for the ultimate feature element in your home. Using these creative options, you can create a stunning feature wall in your next bathroom renovation, an ornately patterned floor in your home or a spectacular feature pattern in your kitchen splashback. Each of these patterned tile design ideas will create a fabulous focal point in your project with tiles offering the perfect solution to creating pattern in your home. 

Creating Patterns using Tiles

Patterns in tiles can be created in different ways; a pattern can be printed directly onto the surface of the tiles themselves to create a bold and characteristic statement piece or alternatively, patterns can be created using a variety of different shaped tiles that fit together to create a specific design. Lantern shapes, paddle designs, mosaic tiles and the popular fish scale tiles are all examples of using shapes to create patterns in your interior design scheme.

Made entirely by hand in Australia, these exciting ceramic tiles can be used to create the ultimate feature wall in any space, from the bathroom to the kitchen.

Another way to create patterns with tiles is to specify a particular laying style. The herringbone tile and chevron tile laying patterns are both popular examples of using traditional tile shapes to create a new look using a specific pattern. These styles are especially favoured in classically style interiors as they offer a wonderfully timeless aesthetic while also offering a new twist on an old favourite.

Patterned Tile Feature Walls

Using a patterned tile to create a feature wall is a sure-fire way to create a sense of drama and interest in any design. Patterned tile feature walls are especially effective in the bathroom as well as outdoor areas (such as alfresco spaces for example) and can be perfectly complemented with a range of more muted designs and colours in order to create that show-stopping standout feature. In the bathroom, use your selected patterned tile to create a feature of the wall behind your vanity unit, within a shower enclosure or behind a luxurious freestanding bathtub to pull focus to the standout area of your design. You can also use patterned wall tiles to add a dramatic touch in the kitchen, using them as a finish on your new splashback or even to clad the face of your island benchtop for a luxurious touch.
