The variety of unique tile options is endless, which makes selecting the tiles for your home renovation or ground-up custom home a bit more challenging. The bold tile trend has continued to grow over the years and applies to all types of homes and design styles. If you’ve been thinking about making a statement with your tile, now is the time!
Whether on the floor or on the wall, using a bold tile can add style to almost any room. Your tile design can be simple and muted to add a bit of texture and interest or you can go bold and bright.
The kitchen backsplash is a great opportunity to create a focal point in the most used room in the house. Tile can create a visual break from the cabinetry and create a stunning background for your work area. With the current kitchen cabinet and countertop trend still leaning towards a neutral palette, a bold backsplash can bring the room to life and make it feel unique. Implementing a ceiling height backsplash will allow you to fully embrace the bold tiles and create a modern look.
Tile accent walls can also create a show-stopping effect in your bathroom. People are beginning to tile more surface area than ever before! Taking bold tile from the floors up to the ceiling creates an immersive effect and is increasing in popularity. Bathrooms are no longer just a place for neutrals. Bold tiles burst with personality, add rich texture and are just a bit more fun.
Laundry rooms are another space that is gaining attention and becoming a showpiece in the home. People feel freer to have a little fun with the laundry room by using bold tiles that add character and charm. The focus is on creating a beautiful and functional space, laundry can be boring, but your laundry room doesn't have to be.
If you choose to go the bold tile route, keep in mind that patterned tile will have repeats much like wallpaper. It’s important to lay out your design ahead of time so that it ends up balanced. Also be careful not to overdo it with too many busy patterns mixed or too much in one space. Choosing the right tiles for your home renovation or custom home build can be quite a challenge.
