Creative Ways to Use Tile in Your Home

No matter the type of tile you choose— marble, limestone, travertine, and many more—there are always creative ways to use tile to decorate your home. You can design a decorative headboard, designate certain areas of your house, or feature your fireplace with beautiful tiles. The options are as endless as your ideas, so continue reading for a brief sampling of creative ways to use tile.

Tile Your Fireplace

You can decorate the inside or surrounding area of your fireplace in tile. Create a beautiful mosaic inside or outside of your fireplace with bright colors, inventive designs, and hardy tile. Speak with your tile store and installer about the right kind of tile that can stand up to the extreme heat and soot that it will encounter in your fireplace. If you prefer, you can simply tile the fireplace mantle to bring an extra flare to the area without the soot cleanup.

Mix Your Flooring

Instead of tiling each room in the same or individual designs, meld each area’s design with the other. For example, your dining area’s tile flooring can be simple or intricate as it connects to your nearby hardwood or carpeting. Choose inventive tile shapes, such as triangles or hexagons, and mix and match these shapes with your other flooring. Your flooring will be an interesting talking piece when guests come over for dinner.

Tile Your Headboard

Tile does not have to be on your floors, countertops, or backsplashes. You can tile your walls, ceiling, bathtub, and your headboard. Don’t settle for a boring headboard to go with your bedframe; use a mosaic tile or beautiful porcelain tile across the wall where your headboard would typically be. This will make a beautiful place to fall asleep and wake up every night and day.

Comparing Your Options for a Tile Backsplash

Backsplashes are a common feature in kitchens and bathrooms. Whether they are decorated with glass, stone, or porcelain tile, backsplashes are beautiful ways to protect your walls from water, food, and other liquid damages. As you will soon find at your tile store, you have many options to choose from to create a beautiful and functional backsplash. Let’s take a look at some of your backsplash tile options.

Mirror Tile Backsplash

Mirrors visually open a space, so a mirror tile backsplash is perfect if you have a small kitchen. Even if you do not have a small space, then you can use mirror tiles to brighten and open a specific area of your kitchen. You can use a specific size and shape of mirror tiles, or you may choose to create an interesting mosaic of mirrors, metal, and other tile materials.

Glass Tile Backsplash

Glass tiles have become a popular design no matter where they are installed. As a backsplash, though, glass tiles are a beautiful addition to a kitchen or bathroom. Glass tiles come in a variety of colors, so you have many options when matching your glass tile backsplash to your current décor.

Diagonal Tile Backsplash

Whether you choose a solid color or patterned backsplash tile, consider turning it at an angle to create an interesting design. Diagonal tile backsplashes can easily break up what might be a drab or boring-looking backsplash.

Pattern Tile Backsplash

There are several types of patterned tile, including laser-cut, porcelain, painted, and many more. If you want to add to your kitchen or bathroom design, look at various patterns and colors. Many patterned tiles can also come in a type of “puzzle” where your tile installer will connect each tile’s design to create a cohesive overall design.

Tips for Finding the Best Tile for Your Shower

Porcelain tile showers are a top trend in today’s home designs. When you are constructing a new bathroom space, you may want to visit a tile showroom to learn more about the bathroom tile options that are available for your shower installation. A properly tiled shower will add beauty and resilience to your bathroom. Read on to learn about some essential factors to consider when you are shopping for new bathroom tile.

Consider Curves and Slopes

While some shower spaces are perfectly square in design, other showers may feature curved benches and other sloped surfaces. When you are sourcing tile for your shower, you will want to take into account any curved surfaces that will need to be tiled. To achieve a smooth and even result, you will want to select smaller tile for your installation. Smaller tile pieces will be easier to lay on a curved surface.

Ask About Water Resistance

Before you settle on a tile to use in your shower, you will want to make sure that it offers the proper level of water resistance. Since your shower tile will be exposed to water on a daily basis, you will need to make sure that your tile installation can be used in a wet space.

Explore Tile Combinations

When you are tiling your shower, you may find that choosing only one type of tile will not allow you to achieve your desired effect. Many homeowners find that using both large and small pieces of tile creates a beautiful and varied appearance in the shower space. You may also want to enhance the beauty of your tiled shower by adding an accent tile mosaic.

At Tile Fantastic, we are thrilled to provide our customers with a terrific inventory of beautiful tile products. When you are gathering bathroom tile ideas for your renovation, you should be sure to contact our bathroom tile company in Los Altos.
