Places You Can Use Tile

Aside from flooring projects, which is one of the most common uses, tile is a versatile material that can be used in a variety of different places throughout your home. With endless options for design, using tile to create an accent or focal point in your space is a great way to add a unique touch. You can choose from a variety of materials including glass, ceramic, natural stone, and beyond to match nearly any aesthetic. From full accent walls to fireplace surrounds, tabletops, and more, tile can be used for projects big and small. Check out how tile can transform some of these unique spots throughout your home! 

Feature Wall

A feature wall can be used in nearly any room throughout your house, making a dramatic difference in the whole look and feel of the space. It has the ability to turn a dull space into an extraordinary one. If your kitchen could use a quick upgrade, your living room design is outdated, or your bathroom needs a modern touch, an accent wall may be just the answer! The first step is choosing which wall you’d like to feature. Typically, it’d be the wall you’re facing when you enter the room to immediately catch your eye. You can get creative with mixing and matching materials and textures; For example, if you’re highlighting the wall and it will be behind a fluffy couch, you can contrast it with a smooth tile behind such as glass or metal tile. Or, if you have a leather couch, you can add a little bit of rough texture with natural stone tile. You can even create these accent walls behind your bed for a unique look! 

Fireplace Surround 

With gas fireplaces becoming increasingly popular, finding a material that matches the modern, sleek look of this new trend is key. Ditch the bricks; Tile is a timeless alternative to use for your fireplace surround! Porcelain tile is a sensible choice for around your fireplace, as it can withstand the heat from the fireplace. You can also get creative with glass tile to create a unique mosaic, or use ceramic for an interesting pattern. 

Tabletops 

Have an old table that has certainly seen better days? Well, don’t get rid of it just yet. You can use tile to create a mosaic or design on your tabletop that will give it just the makeover that it needs! Even if your table is round, square and rectangular tiles can be used along curved edges. Ceramic tiles are a versatile material that can be used to create endless patterns and designs for your tabletop. This can be a fun DIY project for a rainy day!
