Unconventional Uses for Tile Craft in the Modern Home

DSCF8968Tile craft is a versatile medium that can be used in a variety of home applications. If you’re looking for a creative way to spice up your home, the design possibilities using tile craft are only limited by your imagination. Keep reading for just a few ideas that can inspire your own home tile projects.

Patchwork Wall

If you would like to find a unique way to create a tiled accent wall, consider mirroring the look of a cozy patchwork quilt using tiles. Choose tiles with varying colors, patterns, and textures to design a truly unique and artistic feature in any room. The explosion of color and pattern from your tiled patchwork wall will imbue the room with life and light. Consider using this design idea in a bathroom on the wall opposite the mirror to double the effect.

Storybook Backsplash

Tiles are a popular medium for kitchen backsplashes. While there are a wide selection of patterns, sizes, shapes, and colors available, you can take this design element a step further and create a “storybook backsplash” unique to your own home. Choose either pre-printed images or consider having your own ceramic photograph tiles made to turn your kitchen backsplash into a timeline of memories or an unfolding tale.

Tiled Fireplace

A tiled fireplace creates a standout piece of art right in the middle of your home. Rather than using traditional tiles, consider going for a vintage or eclectic look, designing your fireplace as a unique complement to the rest of your home’s décor. Continue the tiling onto the wall or hearth around the fireplace for a larger-than-life look that enhances this amazing home design element.
