Using tiles and ceramics in the home adds beauty and texture. A benefit of using these materials is that there are several ideas available if you know how to match colors and know how to create patterns. You can usually use the materials on any surface, transforming areas of the home so that they have a unique look that suits your personality and the themes that you use.
Contrasting tile colors can be used in any room of the home to create a modern appearance. You can also use tile with another material, such as tin, to add texture and depth to the room. Tiles allow you to easily add color to any room that would otherwise be white or designed in neutral colors. Use larger tiles on your kitchen table for texture as well. Cork tiles are an option if you aren’t sure what kind to use. However, try to match the tiles on the table to other decorations in the room as well as colors that are on the walls.
A beautiful backsplash can be created with tiles of any color. You can also make a pattern for the backsplash with tiles of two or three different colors. Use a clear paint over the tiles to give a shiny or shimmering look. This idea works well in the bathroom or in the kitchen behind the sink or stove. You can use the same design idea to make a mosaic on the wall of the shower. Try to use only one or two colors in the bathroom as more than this can begin to overwhelm the space. Some tiles that you can get have shapes on them. These are a beautiful addition to any room of the home instead of just plain colors. The patterns can also accent the details on the cabinets and drawers. Longer pieces of ceramic or tile material can be used on the walls as well. These often make a smaller space seem larger because of the horizontal design. Pebbled tile on the floor can also add depth and creates a nice geometric design for the room.
