We're inspired by these 21 examples of tile-accented living areas. They prove that the perfect tile can transform any space -- and the options are limitless! Consider using custom tilework outdoors or in unexpected areas for an exciting surprise.
It's important to note that many different feelings can be evoked with accent tile. The pattern often isn't our only consideration; the type of tile, scale, size, texture and surrounding context makes for a vast range of tile opportunities. Just check out our Shaughnessy Residence and Kitsilano Residence to see just how impactful tiles can be! This is why it's important to have a close dialogue with your design team in order to find the right fit for your home and lifestyle.
Scroll through Houzz's feature round-up for some examples of tile-accented outdoor fireplaces and lounges, hallways, stairs and more!
The fireplace is the home's full-height focal point. Its bold colour scheme is a collection of incredible tiles, custom installed. The horizontal layers of tile are arranged to pull your eye upwards. We've balanced the fireplace's visual interest with a light design rationale for the rest of the room. The white and neutrals in this living space come together to create an overall calming place to rest. In this way, the fine details of this home slip into the realm of the sublime.
Outside, we worked closely with our custom tile setters to make sure that the exterior finishes were seamless and waterproof. These tiles reflect light and make visitors feel bathed in sunlight, even in the darkest of rainy days.
Finally, the kitchen received a custom tile installation as well; although, the design rationale here is meant to add value without adding distraction. This kitchen feels light and spacious. If you look closely, you can spot some key details that add to the functional flow of this kitchen!
