With thousands of tiles to choose from, wall tile is a stylish and functional material to incorporate into your home’s design. It can be used in any room to turn a drab wall into a fab wall. Choose from beautiful colors and great textures to create wow-worthy walls. With little maintenance, wall tile can stay looking new for years to come. Here are a few inspirations from Flowers Flooring:
Bathroom Wall Tile
If your bathroom is on the smaller side, you may want to consider extending the same tile throughout the entire space such as 1-inch by 1-inch tile in the same color. This makes the space look bigger while reflecting light.
For a larger bathroom consider using a larger tile overhead and a smaller tile on the walls. This gives the room more depth and proportion. As an added bonus, using a less expensive tile on the upper walls and ceiling can keep the tile from breaking your budget. Another way to save some additional money is to use drywall and paint above the tile, and simply tile three quarters of the way up the bathroom wall.
Living Room / Dining Room Pizzazz
A tile wall in any room, especially a living room creates a great accent wall that adds color and interest. A floor-to-ceiling tile wall creates a dramatic change in material that breaks the pattern of the room, creating a stunning accent piece.
A kitchen backsplash can add real flair to your kitchen with little fuss. Many homeowners are now extending kitchen backsplash tiles to the ceiling, so the tile is installed below the cabinets and above. Another popular trend is installing subway tiles in a horizontal or chevron pattern. This adds more character and automatically draws your eye to the accent wall.
