#1 Kitchen Splashbacks

One of the most popular ways to use wall tiles is as a splash back is in the kitchen.

Not only do they look great, but they’re also functional and keep water stains off your walls! If you’re looking to give your home an instant update, this is one way that won’t break the bank.

Whether you choose plain white tiles or go for a pattern, they’re always going to look stylish and chic.

If you want to add some style to your kitchen but don’t have the money to replace your appliances, why not swap out an old backsplash?

#2 Bathroom Beauty

Another great way to use wall tiles is in your bathroom.

Not only do they look great, but they’re also functional and practical, keeping your bathroom free from damp. If you’re looking for maximum impact in your decor, use your bathroom wall tiles in the most creative way you can.

Combining patterns is one of the most popular ways to mix up the look and feel of any room, so why not try it with wall tiles?

#3 Shower Panels

Shower panels create the perfect solution for any bathroom.

They’re a great way to decorate your shower area and come in all kinds of patterns and designs, so you’ll be sure to find something that works for you. Use them with your favourite wall tiles to really add flair and drama to your bathroom decor.

#4 Go Large

If your bathroom is small, large tiles are the best way to create an illusion of space.

This is one of the most popular ideas in bathroom design at the moment, and for good reason – large wall tiles make your room look bigger!

Here’s why. The larger tile gives an illusion of depth – it’s quite similar to the way a larger TV screen makes things look smaller.

Go for large tiles in most of your bathroom if you want that feeling of increased space.

#5 Add Details

You don’t have to be an interior designer to give your bathroom designer impact.

There are many ways to add detail that don’t cost much – you could use a simple border or try something more complicated like creating your own pattern.

We are a big fan of tiles that create a mixed up look straight out of the box, so check out designs that offer this kind of look if you need some help.

#6 Jaunty Angles

Finding your inner creative with your wall tile decor, can be achieved through the use of angles.

Arrange your tiles around 90 degrees or 45 to make an interesting pattern – this is very easy if you are using border tiles, but can even work with large wall tiles.

This technique works best in bathrooms where there isn’t much natural light, because it’s all about creating shadows and shapes.

We also love this look about your counters and worktops in the kitchen. Why be boring? Hexagon tiles are a very modern way to bring a striking design to your kitchen in 2021 and beyond.

#7 Using Colour

Let’s talk about colour! Using colourful wall tiles in your bathroom or kitchen is an easy way to inject personality and flair into your decor.

You don’t have to pick a plain colour either, there are so many amazing options on the market that allow you to play with colour in different ways – from metallic accents through to glitters.

Don’t forget about using coloured grout too, because this is one of the easiest ways to make a statement, and it can even work with large wall tiles.

Even if you like to keep things simple when choosing your tile design, the use of colour is such an easy way to liven up plain walls.

Wall tiles are an easy way to get creative with your home decor.

Whether you’re thinking about using them in the bathroom or kitchen, they can make a big difference when it comes to creating a beautiful space that feels cozy and comfortable.

Or maybe you want to use them outside on the patio.

No matter what project you have planned for these versatile pieces of material, we hope this post has given you some inspiration for how wall tile can be used creatively in your own home design projects.
