Top Tips for Making an Impact with Tiles

Contrasting colours

One top tip is to look for a contrasting grout colour – like this in grey here. It can tie tiles into your colour scheme and change the feel of them completely. Hanging the thin oblong tiles in this gorgeous herringbone pattern also adds a touch of glamour and feels so different to hanging them horizontally.

Consider different shapes

Another great way to ensure a styled look to your tiling is to use a hexagon shape tile and hang it not to a straight line finish. This adds texture to the look and has a great impact against a dark paint colour too.

And finally, don’t be afraid to be bold

This kitchen design here isn’t for everyone, but if you’re going for an industrial look it fills this wall with such striking impact it bowls you over. You definitely need a large tall space to carry this off as per the image, but in a smaller splash back it would still have a great impact. The beauty of the silver tiles is that they create a statement and are relatively low maintenance.

Natural pearl mosaics in tawny shades with understated shine are perfect for an opulent backdrop. These Mother of Pearl mosaic tiles come in various shades of natural and really make a statement in your bathroom
