Tile is one of the most versatile materials you can use in your home. You can use it as flooring, as a backsplash or even as a wallcovering. Because it comes in different shapes, sizes and colors, you have the flexibility to develop your own unique tile designs for the home. You can create a stunning floor pattern to mimic a rug or use tiles on the wall to create a piece of art.

Kitchen Tile Ideas
Using larger floor tiles is one way you can make a room feel more spacious. In this kitchen, grout lines are kept to a minimum. This creates a more monumental look on the floor rather than something with lots of little pieces. And by choosing to match the tile and grout color, it gives a more seamless look. It removes visual distractions and allows your eye to focus on the pops of green on the table and the mixed metal accents.
White paired with a light gray is a fabulous alternative to the all white kitchen. It’s a cool, serene color combination that makes the space feel airy and open. To create the illusion of a deeper counter, we paired a large white subway tile with a gorgeous white marble countertop. The counter mimics the gray paint on the cabinets, while the horizontal cabinet hardware mirrors the lines of the tile. The sleek, but simple design is anything but boring.
Clean, crisp lines and a black and white color palette give this kitchen a bit of an edgy vibe. The large square floor tiles create the perfect backdrop to this high-contrast space and allow your eye to move effortlessly around the kitchen. The wood grain cabinets and stools, along with the unexpected pop of green bring warmth and softness to the space.
Laundry Room Tile Ideas
Using tile to create detail is a fabulous way to add visual interest, especially in a functional space like the laundry room. The unique, organic pattern on the wall brings to mind the movement of water while the neutral floor tiles help anchor the space. The white counters and walls make the room appear larger and the witty glass front cabinets add a whimsical touch. It’s a chic, minimalist space that’s stylish and functional.
Tile is also a wonderful alternative to hardwoods and is often unexpected! A light colored, over-sized porcelain tile evokes a serene feeling in this bedroom. A large rug placed under the bed warms up the tile and makes sure you have a soft place for your feet to land in the morning. Because the tile color coordinates seamlessly with the walls, your focus is drawn to the movement in the rug and the gorgeous textured accent wall behind the bed. The accent wall pulls the room together beautifully!
