Get pretty with pattern

patterned tiles

Patterned tiles have been around for centuries and for good reason – they bring instant impact and transform a room. But they are also very durable, which makes them a practical choice. Designers and homeowners alike are now taking full advantage of everything patterned tiles have to offer.

Pretty and practical

With patterned wall and floor tiles being so popular it means that there is now almost any style, colour or pattern than you could imagine – from the floral to the geometric – the diversity of styles available means that whatever the style of home or room, there is a perfect patterned tile to suit it.

A modern home or a plain space will sit well with geometric style patterns, for instance, whereas a floral pattern will sit comfortably in a period setting. A small room will work better with a more intricate pattern, while a larger pattern will hold its own and make more of a statement in a sizable room without feeling too overbearing. Spacious hallways are perfect for being exuberant with a large patterned floor tile, impressing visitors as soon as they walk through the door. This use of the Art Colours Wave patterned tiles is a case in point. The Art series contains a plethora of other styles too such as monochrome, pastels, patchwork, flower and geometric styles.

A minimalist, clinical-looking kitchen can be brought alive and transformed into something truly unique with an energetic patterned floor. Use bold pattern as a splash back to completely change the look of a kitchen, or as a feature wall to create a talking point at your next dinner party.

Patterned tiles can take it your washroom to wow. You can really go to town with the monochrome beauties in the New England range. Or for a softer pastel look, the Bordeaux Toulon patterned tile looks beautiful, as shown in this bathroom, especially with the Victorian-style radiator and taps. And the Bordeaux Bianco Paris patterned tile creates a style feature out of this shower cubicle. Even a stairway can be brought to life with the use of some Quilt Patchwork Random Décor tiles.

Versatile and durable

You can get creative with pattern too by using a plain floor tile next to a patterned tile to delineate separate functional areas and to give some contrast to an area you wish to highlight or create a rug effect underneath a kitchen table. The Artisan Carbone Grey Décor floor tile, when teamed with our Artisan Base wall and floor tile, creates a beautiful and unified kitchen.

The beauty of floor and wall patterned tiles is that not only do they transform a space into something beautiful but because they are made from glazed porcelain, they are also easy to clean, practical and hardwearing so are great for a home with young children, pets or muddy boots.

And to compliment?

Patterned tiles are very much the centrepiece of the room – and the bolder the pattern, the less they will like having to compete for attention with another pattern.

For a patterned floor to really stand out and be the ‘star of the show’, simple, neutral furniture and accessories are the best bedfellows. But adding a few accent colour accessories or furniture that picks out just one of the colours in the floor tile, will unify the room.

A patterned floor needs careful consideration – choosing the perfect tile is not a decision that should be taken lightly – but, choose wisely, and your patterned floor will bring a whole new dimension of luxury to your home.
