Metro Tiles Design Ideas

With this influx in tiles, has come a variety of tile design options. This blog and video talks about some interesting design options, so that you know what's possible and will hopefully get you thinking about which tile designs would look good in your home.

Tile Layout

Something different from the famous brick-bond layout is the herringbone layout. This tile design has been around for years and looks effective on the floor and wall. This tile layout will change the look of the wall and add some personality and individuality to the room.

Using Contrasting Grout Colours

Another effective way to influence your metro tile design, is to consider the grout colour. When you think about it, the grout is part of the design and can highlight or hide the individual tile layout. It depends if you wish to place emphasis on the tile design or not.

For example, see below for the same Bevelled red tile with a black grout and also a white grout. Black and red contrast with the vibrant red and give a different effect to the tile design. The black grout darkens down the design, making it stronger and more vibrant.

One of the joys of choosing metro tiles is the choice you have in regards to tile design. Even if you don't opt for a contrasting grout colour to highlight the pattern, the tiles will still highlight the design through light and texture. A glossy bevelled edge will capture and reflect the light in room. The Bevelled Tile Series is a good option.
