Wall tile is a unique way to finish a room and give it a “wow factor,” whether it’s a bathroom, kitchen, dining room or other space. It’s available in so many materials, colors, and designs that it can easily be tailored to help achieve whatever the desired look might be.
Tile has long been a popular material for use in flooring, given that it can be produced to resemble wood and other higher cost products. But it’s becoming increasingly popular for use in wall designs.
Using tile for a wall can either be done in bright colors with eye-catching designs that create a focal point of the room, or in more subtle shades that complement a more understated look. Whether the material is porcelain, marble, granite, or other types of wall tile, it’s a comparatively low-cost option that also provides a durable substance which is relatively easy to clean and maintain.
For a visually stunning backsplash in the kitchen or bathroom, consider using white and cream limestone pebbles arranged in patterns that will be unique to each project. This type of material is a perfect choice in a room where splashes from water and other liquids will be common, because it’s hard to stain and resistant to damage, and cleaning it is a simple task.
Another look that will truly make visitors say “wow” is to use stacked slate stone tiles in varying colors, including shades of brown, grays, gold, and rust. These varying tiles provide a layered, textured look to a wall and the variety in tile means no two walls will look the same.
Some designers might want a more subtle, elegant appearance – and thankfully tiles are so adaptable that there are options to help achieve a more understated image for a wall. For example, porcelain that is produced in soft whites, gray, and browns can be made to look like wood paneling. This can help achieve a classy look of hardwood walls without the massive cost involved with wood.
Polished marble tile, perhaps in light grays and whites, can also create an elegant appearance. By neatly laying rectangular tiles in an organized pattern, it creates a clean, simplistic yet stylish wall with a design that works well in kitchens, bathrooms, and elsewhere.
Or perhaps the room calls for a compromise between colorful, visually stunning designs with a need for a more subtle overall style. One option in this situation is to use small hexagonal marble tiles arranged in symmetrical patterns on a wall, possibly in solid colors like white. It will create a unique image that makes the wall stand out without dominating the look of the entire room.
Whatever the design and however big or small the wall, tile of any material provides many design options that brings with it the benefit of competitive pricing and easy upkeep. Given the wide variety of styles and materials on offer, all these reasons therefore show why wall tile is the perfect option for a different design approach that will work in almost any room.
