Instead of painting your kitchen, add interest and function with a tile backsplash. Subway tiles are popular and timeless. These are usually placed in a brick-like pattern, but they don’t have to be boring. Choose glass tiles for a reflective surface that adds dimension. Choose a different shape, like ovals, to take this trend to the next level.
If you don’t want to cover the whole wall with a backsplash, consider using accent tiles. Accent tiles add texture without locking you into a complex project.
Make A Mosaic
Tiles become especially decorative when you use them to create a mosaic. This is also an ideal way to feature embellished or luxury products without breaking the bank. Scatter a few pieces of ornamental tile within a neutral foundation.
You can also make a mosaic-like effect by distributing various colors throughout your tilework. The Castlegate tile takes the guesswork out of this process, providing you with tones that complement one another. Staggering the pattern can give you a zig-zag or random configuration.
Upgrade Your Entry
If you’re planning to incorporate tile into your flooring, start with your entrance hall. This room likely has a small footprint; you can install tile relatively inexpensively. You’ll create an area that’s easier to clean than carpet or vinyl. You won’t have to worry about the kids tracking mud onto your floor, and you’ll add pizzazz to your home’s first impression.
Depending on the style and color of tile that you select, you can make your foyer look sleek and contemporary or rustic and natural. The options are endless.
Repurpose Extra Tiles
If you’ve recently completed a tile project, you probably have some pieces left over. You can give tiles new life by fashioning them into attention-grabbing home décor pieces. Some creative ways to use tiles include:
• Placing them under glasses as coasters
• Adhering them to a piece of wood to use as a table top
• Building a tile planter
• Placing them near the stove as trivets
• Covering your kitchen island with them
