It’s not just the patterns of fabrics – curtains, cushions and upholstery, or the surface covering pattern of wallpaper, that can bring vibrancy, texture, pattern and colour into a room – consider your tile choice too!
And tiles aren’t just for kitchens and bathrooms. Tiling a wall can be just as great for a feature wall as wallpaper. The patterns available are incredible plus it’s a long lasting, hardy finish.
Tiles could be used in just a panel area for a head board. And, if a fireplace needs updating the surroundings or hearth with tiles could give a bold new look.
There is a plethora of tiles across the high street and online to choose from to incorporate this trend into the home.
Textured and 3D tiles can add depth and interest to surfaces and create a richer look for a bathroom, kitchen, hearth or wherever you choose to use them.
These tiles can lend themselves to enhance and working alongside other trends – denim, natural finishes, geometric are just some of the trends that would work well alongside tiles that have 3D or relief designs or textured pattern or natural style finishes.
