Tile Ideas – See a roundup of new tile styles, patterns, materials, and more featured in these articles.
1. Edgy bath.
This punchy Australian home does a lot to dazzle the eye with oversize murals, sleek materials, bold colors and patterns, and, of course, graphic tile.
A shimmery black mosaic tile with skulls and swords and a flaming heart cuts a striking edge in a powder room.
2. Outdoor oasis.
The colorful tile found in this Phoenix backyard goes above and beyond your typical accent feature.
You’ll find the same multicolored tile lining the outdoor grill area, the steps to the pool, and above a wood-burning fireplace, which is also framed by graphic black-and-white concrete tile.
3. Elegant bath.
The blue-and-white glass tile in the shower of this Los Angeles bathroom is a standout feature.
But to me, the simple elegance of the creamy white hex-tile floor makes the biggest statement.
4. Studio style.
In addition to all the great tile found inside homes throughout this week’s coverage, we also took readers inside the tile-making studio of ceramic artist Barbara Clark.
Her handmade creations grace the terra cotta-toned floor of her studio, shown here.
5. Bold backsplash.
This Denver kitchen might be short on space, but it’s definitely not short on style.
Graphic backsplash tile energizes the mood while black, small-print hex tiles on the floor bring a bit of playful sophistication.
6. Wood-like wonder.
This week we brought several fascinating tile styles straight from the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings, or CERSAIE, which took place in September in Bologna, Italy.
There’s a new tile that looks like wallpaper, concrete, resin, fabric, and more. And while tile that resembles wood has been around for a while now, new products boast a variety of finishes, such as matte, that really push the resemblance closer to the real deal.
7. Daring diamond.
Many people want a close-to-sterile look in their bathroom to punctuate that clean feeling. But the floor is a great place to get a little playful.
Here, handmade encaustic cement tile in a bright blue diamond pattern amps up the otherwise crisp and modern space.
8. Luxe layout.
You don’t have to embrace eye-jarring colors to introduce a bit of interest to space. Sometimes using simple materials in a fun way gets the job done.
Here, plain white elongated rectangle tile in a chevron pattern with dark grout pushes out lots of character. And gorgeous marble gets a spin with a hex shape.
9. Moroccan magic.
This Austin, Texas, home features tons of eye-catching tile throughout. In this pool-side cabana bathroom, a blue Moroccan-inspired tile plays off the shimmering water outdoors.
10. Soft and stunning.
In the same Austin home, this faintly patterned tile brings a subtle charm to the sink and vanity wall.
