What are the different methods of adding character with tiling?

There are a number of different ways to using tiling to add character to your space. These methods include:

  • Using textured tiles
  • Using patterned tiles
  • Using tiling layouts

Textured tiles can add character to your home

Textured tiles are designed to have a 3D effect, with some parts of the tile having more depth than others. This creates a very tactile effect, that can draw attention and create a visual feature in any room. This also adds character to the room, because of the unusual visual effect. Choose tiles that are the same colour as the rest of the space for a subtle result, or tiles that will stand out and add to the contrast for a stunning visual effect.

Patterned tiles can add character to your home

Patterned tiles are available in all kinds of different styles, from contemporary to traditional. Choose abstract or contemporary design to create a room with a playful yet modern design, and floral patterned tiles for a more traditional space.

Tiling layouts can add character to your home

Tiling layouts are created by installing tiles using a particular method. Some tiles with unusual shapes can create an effective visual impact with simple straight lay, like hexagonal tiling, while other more intricate layouts can also be achieved. From chevron tiling, to grid tiling, and herringbone tiling to the brick bond layout, the way your tiles are installed can give depth and character to any room.
