Ideal Home Wall tile trends

It’s just as important to consider wall tiles alongside your paint and furniture. Wall tiles are simple yet effective, with their wipe clean finish they are a practical feature. With so many styles and colours to choose they will become the sought after splash of style to your room.

There are a few things to bare in mind when choosing your wall tiles; Firstly, wall tiles are not just for the kitchen or bathroom, wall tiles can add drama to a porch or hallway, add light to a living room and make a statement in the bedroom. You cant use wall tiles on the floor (although you can use floor tiles on the wall) the reason for this is most wall tiles are made from ceramic making them softer and less durable than a porcelain floor tile.

Cermaic tiles are a lighter choice; the general rule of thumb is 20kg per square metre maximum weight on plaster walls and 32kg on plaster board, something you may need to consider when choosing tiles. Grouting impacts the final look. Grout that matches your tiles gives a clean, sleek finish, while white tiles look striking with dark and colourful grout.

1. New Angles


Ditch uniform rows and neatly finished edges. Here, brick tiles in different colours and patterns have been laid at a slant. As well as creating a visual appealing look applying tiles like this can help with working about tricky interior details such as; shelves, windows and plug sockets. Choose complimentary shades and matching grout to stop it becoming to busy.
