The impact of tiles.

At the moment I am working on a project where my clients are keen to explore the impact of tiles in their kitchen and bathroom areas. Its an exciting opportunity to add some colour, pattern and even texture into these spaces.

Tiles can be an economical way to add character to your home. Given the huge variety available, there is something on offer for everyone. At the moment, moroccan tiles are certainly on trend, creating a bold statement with colour and pattern. And so are geometric patterns with their contemporary lines and monochromatic colour schemes. But given the more permanent nature of tiles, be sure to choose a design that you love, that compliments your home's interior and that possesses a sense of longevity. After all, its not easy to mix up your tiles as it is to mix up your cushions!

The subway tile, probably the most common and loved style on the market today, is classic and modern. A great combination if you ask me! But if the all white subway is a little on the plain side for you, why not explore these variations:

Mirror subway tiles! A great way to add some glam to your home and works equally well in both contemporary and traditional style kitchens (see above). Or perhaps the imperfect, coloured tile (below). I particularly love its irregular shape and movement as light reflects over it. It's simple, but visually interesting.

For something special, whether you're designing a new home or renovating your existing one, the collection of Japanese tiles avilaable at Artedomus is something to behold. A stunning collection of colour, materials and finishes so unique and timeless in style and design. Definitely a great resource to keep in mind!
