Design Tips

Be Bold | Adventurous Tile Design in Your Home

Did you recently find a highly textured or vibrantly colored tile that you are in love with - but have no idea how to use it in your home renovation? Fear not, we are here to help.

Here at Grayscale, we're huge fans of unique, unexpected tile designs. They're an amazing way to add colossal amounts of character to any room, but can also overwhelm a space if they are not done properly. So, as a general rule of thumb, we recommend placing them in eye-catching spaces such as fireplaces, wet bars, accent walls, and of course, as a backsplash.

Each of these aforementioned spots can be the perfect medium for a daring tile pattern. You will also find that adding a small pop of color or fun texture is an easy and impressive way enhance your overall design concept without being a seasoned interior professional. It's also an excellent way to create cohesiveness throughout the entire home.

For example, in the first two images below you can see that we used an Ann Sacks "Versailles" mirror tile as the backsplash for the dining room wet bar, as well as for the living room fireplace. This created a unique look that was cohesive, without feeling redundant or stale.

Moral of the story - be all the right places.
