Using tiles for more than floors and walls

Tiles have long been a popular option for any property, both commercial and residential. They are the perfect choice for walls and floors, being hardwearing, durable, and easy to clean and maintain. However there are a number of effective options for using tiles for more than floors and walls. So what are these options? And how can you achieve the right results?

What are the options when using tiles for more than floors and walls?

There are a number of different ways to use tiles throughout the home, for more than just the floors and walls. These include:

  • Fireplace tiling
  • Outdoor tiling for patios

Fireplace tiling options 

One of the most popular ways to use tiles apart from the floor and wall coverings is to use tiles as a fireplace surround. Not only are these an incredibly practical choice, with the ability to withstand high temperatures without damage, but these are also aesthetically pleasing too. Tiling around the hearth can create a striking focal point with tiling colours and patterns helping to establish the style and design of the space very effectively. With the range of tiling styles available, from traditional to contemporary, you can create a result that compliments your interior design style.

Outdoor tiling for patios

In addition to fireplace tiling, outdoor patio tiling can also be incredibly effective. Again, tiling here can improve the visual appeal of the space, with anything from mosaic tiling to large format tiling being both practical and visually striking. Tiles can be very effective for outdoor use as these are naturally weather-resistant and water resistant, which means they can withstand the elements without being damaged or losing their charm. Tiles can also provide a very useful slip-resistant surface, making your patio safer.
