Using feature tiles to transform your room

Decorating your home doesn't have to be difficult, and the results don't have to be boring. Even if you've only ever thought of using tiles for kitchens, bathrooms and flooring, you're in luck, with our ideas to use feature tiles to lift your home from bland to brilliant.

Tiles have been around for a long time, and you may think you've seen it all when it comes to decorating with them, but why not try using mixed patterns on your feature walls, rather than sticking with just one type? Try polka dots with checks, or stripes with mosaic trim. The possibilities really are endless.

Feature tiles come in an amazing range, from tiny mosaic tiles no more than 1" square, to large slabs of concrete-look or marble tiles that give a beautiful finish, without all the work, and make your rooms look bigger.

You don't have to stick to using tiles only in the bathroom or the kitchen either. Why not brighten up your plain office wall with a gorgeous patterned display that enhances your furniture and creates an amazing first impression. Or bring tiles into your hall with a stunning Victorian pattern to have visitors looking on in awe, like our design for one of our clients in Kelvedon. That's also an excellent idea if you're hoping to sell your home and want buyers to be wowed as soon as they walk through the door. 

If you have outdoor space, beautiful floor tiles like porcelain tiles can also be used outdoors, smoothing the transition from outdoors to indoors and giving the impression that your house is larger than it is.If you'd like something really distinctive and quirky, and you have stairs with a solid riser, have you considered using feature tiles on the risers to give a completely different and highly unusual designer look? We have a range of beautiful floor tiles that could turn your staircase into a feature, rather than just an afterthought.

Turning back to the trusty kitchen and bathroom, you could add a coloured or contrasting set of tiles on your splashback, or do something different and make a feature of the wall opposite your units instead. Or, if you have a walk-in shower in your bathroom, you could cover the whole thing in tiny coloured mosaics for the kids to count, or metallic tiles for an opulent look.

Don't just think traditionally when using feature tiles in your home. Have fun with your designs, try something a little different and build yourself a truly unique home that's bursting with personality.
