What are the important considerations for fireplace tiling?

If you want to create a dramatic and attractive fireplace, you might want to consider:

  • Choosing the right tiles for your home- whether you have a contemporary home, or a traditional home, the right tiles will make all the difference to your fireplace. There are a range of tile choices, for any style. For example, a traditional fireplace would look stunning when surrounding by traditional, Victorian style tiles. A contemporary fireplace on the other hand, might opt for a geometric pattern, or a simple neutral look instead.
  • Using texture- textured tiles around the fireplace help to add character to your home. These tiles have a 3 dimensional effect, and the texture adds a new layer to the tiling itself. Textured tiles are also very tactile.
  • The size of the tiles- small tiles will suit a smaller fireplace space, but you could create a full wall of tiles, leading from the fireplace itself, up to the ceiling. This could be better suited to large format tiles.
  • Inject some colour– Choose tiles that will compliment your colour scheme, but also stand out from it, to create a colourful, fun and quirky fireplace. You could also opt for a different shade of the same colour tile, for a more understated, subtle feature.
