8 creative tile ideas that will elevate any room in your house

It’s easy to play it safe when it comes to tiles, but with so many gorgeous options out there, they’re a real opportunity to make an impact in your space.

If you’re looking for a way to rejuvenate a space in your home, whether it’s a bathroom that’s seen better days or a kitchen that isn’t a space where people want to gather, tiles are a great way to add style and interest. 

Gone are the days when your options were limited to plain whites and creams: now you can use tiles to create a whole variety of effects. Whether you want to make a statement or create a serene space, there’s a perfect tile for the job. 

Here are eight creative tile ideas for your next interiors project, drawing inspiration from Right Price Tiles & Wood Flooring Fonthill’s range of gorgeous designs.

Go directional

tile ideas bathroom grey

Choosing an interesting tile shape gives you very different looks depending on how it’s laid, and there are plenty of options to choose from.

Laying the same bathroom tiles in a horizontal, vertical, brick layout, herringbone or chevron pattern will all create a different feel, so don’t just automatically assume you need to lay them the same way they’re displayed.

High shine

The finish of your tiles also gives you the chance to control the aesthetic of your space. A matt finish can feel calm and understated, while a glossy, reflective tile will bounce light around the room and make an impact.

Two-tone

tile ideas shower

Who says tiles have to be just one colour? By choosing a design with a fleck of contrasting colour it creates a real statement and focal point for the room.

It can also be a great starting point for a colour scheme for your space.

Get creative with cladding

tile ideas brick cladding

Not all homes have standout features like an exposed brick wall, but you can easily create the look and add real character to a room with brick-effect cladding.

It will make a chimney breast stand out, or create a feature wall in any space in your home.

Detail-driven

Even if you’re after a simple look, think about the details of your tiles. A bevelled edge on this simple white tile creates a slight texture on an otherwise minimalist wall, while a tile with a slight texture will create a richer look than a totally smooth one.

Streamlined surfaces

Going for a floor to ceiling tile look is a great way to create a really clean finish, and can actually make a small space feel bigger.

Choose a larger tile to avoid it feeling busy, and neutral colours are ideal for outlasting passing colour trends. Simply change out accessories to give it an update.

Creating flow

tile ideas living room

In an open-plan kitchen and living area, it can be tempting to have different floor surfaces for each zone.

However, one continuous material will make your room feel calmer, as well as larger, and tiles can be used to great effect for a contemporary finish in a living space as well as a kitchen.

Best of both

tile ideas wood effect

If you love the texture of wood but are drawn to the practicality of tiles, then wood-effect tiles are ideal. Giving the visual warmth of wood without any of the maintenance, they can also be laid in a variety of different patterns depending on the look you want to create.

Choosing the best tile for your space
