Looking for a new way to spice up your design? Forget a new sofa or table, and consider using a tile. Bold tile designs can be achieved through multiple techniques, such as: pattern, texture, color, or even the layering of multiple tiles.
One option could be as simple as picking a bright color. This is a chance to get your toes wet without jumping in with a full pattern. Additionally, you could play with the color of the grout to either hide or accentuate the construction of the tile.
Texture is another great way to add something extra to your tile choice. Above you can see these geometric red tiles that contain a concave center. It gives the user’s eyes something else to get “caught up” on and keep them interested in your space.
Gradients are great way to use color in new way. It allows the wall, floor, backsplash, etc. to become a feature in the space. The basic idea is to take a lighter and darker hue of a color and fill in the space between them with the shades between the two hues.
Another way to combine multiple planes in a space is through a continuous tile. This idea continues the patterned tile not only from the floor to the wall, but also possibly from the wall to the ceiling. It connects the multiple planes into one consecutive design.
One final idea is to layer multiple different types of tile. This particular image shows five different areas for tile use. There is a floor tile, blue square wall tile, large stonewall tile, multiple shades of blue wall mosaic tile, and a tile wall surrounding the central tub. They all play off each other and compliment one another in order to create a cohesive space.
