Are you bored of plain wall and floor tiles? Want some pattern in your life?
Pattern has made a dramatic comeback in recent years as a way to add visual stimulation to a room. You can transform a simple kitchen into something truly unique by using patterned tiles either as a splash back, which will make washing up an absolute pleasure; a feature wall, to create a talking point at your next dinner party; or a beautiful floor, which has the added benefit of hiding the crumbs!
As part of our Dwell range with its choice of patterned inset tiles is the Dwell White Inset 8, a beautiful patterned tile. The main colour of the tile is white so offers the benefits of spaciousness and brightness in a room, but the pattern is subtle enough to use throughout the whole bathroom or kitchen.
For the ultimate in pattern then you might want to take a look at our Quilt Patchwork Random décor, an eclectic mix of ceramic tiles that bring heaps of character and warmth to any country or modern scheme, and is great for adding interest to a kitchen with plain white units.
A bit heavier on the pattern, and therefore more impactful is our Valentino geometric décor tile range which is perfect for perking up a plain beige or white base tile. These lovely metro tiles also come in a variety of patterns so you can indulge your creativity to the max.
My personal favourite though has to be the Artisan range. A stunning collection of floor and wall tiles that bring to mind Victorian encaustic tiles. Beautiful on walls and floors, particularly in the entrance hall, these tiles will not fail to impress visitors, but the pattern is subtle enough to make you love them forever. They come in a choice of beige, blue and grey too, so will compliment any colour scheme you have in mind.
Unless you’ve lived with them for a while, it takes an adventurous person to kit out a whole room with patterned tiles. So if you’re feeling a little nervous then you could try starting in one small room, like the downstairs bathroom floor, for example. Once you’ve decided that you love them, then you can extend your beautiful patterned tiles to other areas of the house.
Use patterned tiles like a work of art. In a bathroom of plain large format tiles you could add a cascade of brightly coloured pattered tiles down one wall, for instance. Be imaginative with patterned tiles and create something beautiful that will make your friends green with envy.
