If you’re thinking of getting a bit more daring and introducing patterns to your space, the following guide will inspire you to think outside of the box, add value and a personal touch to your home and nail your design.
1. Feature Wall
Creating a feature wall with patterned tiles is a great way to inject a sense of style and creative flair to your space. Here is your chance to select a pattern and colour that resonates with your personality and lifestyle. Placing a feature wall in the bathroom is the best place to do this as it adds a personal touch to this busy living space and a memorable corner for your guests.

2. Splash Backs
Not sure you’re a fan of patterned tiles for a feature wall? Consider patterned tiles for your kitchen splashback for a smaller-scale approach with just as much visual impact! As the kitchen is a space that often invites creativity, this is the perfect space for patterned tile. The splashback is to distract from or complement the kitchen appliances you may have on the bench that are necessary but not always aesthetically pleasing. It also serves the purpose of catching grease and grime from the stove. So naturally, a bold graphic, colourful or alternative tile pattern option is the perfect solution for ticking these boxes and adding a WOW factor to the kitchen.

3. Island Bench
If the splashback isn’t your preferred place to add a decorative tile, another option lies within the kitchen on the island bench. The back of the island bench is the perfect place to introduce creativity into a sometimes modern space. The kitchen is often a high-traffic area so adding a decorative tile it is a good way to hide scuff marks from shoes and other damages that may occur in this area.
