Time for an accent wall
Accent walls can be intimidating if you’ve lived your whole life with just flat paint, but these tiles from NAXOS can make that shift more manageable. The embossed tiles channel industrial vibes in a cool gray tone, which look like artwork once the whole wall has been filled.
The vintage feel
Inject some character into your home with these Colonial Tiles by Cifre, which feature just the right balance of rustic and worn-out. This style utilizes faded color and crumpled textures to achieve that industrial or country look reminiscent of old homes that have stood the test of time. Consider this style if you’re looking to make a space feel more cozy yet still chic.
Luxe minus the hassle
Making your space look more upscale and luxurious can be done with tiles—check out these Mosaic Tiles (P620/each) by Picasso. Its glossy metallic finish is sure to stand out and bring the right amount of shine to any surface. The best part? The tiles are peel and stick so you don’t have to worry about exerting tons of effort to make your kitchen or bathroom look more luxe!
A bit of texture
Upgrade your plain walls with a bit of texture using these tiles from NAXOS. The tiles are subtle and fine, allowing you to create depth without attracting too much attention. To maintain visual harmony go for shades in the same color scheme as your space.
Break the monotony in a snap by using these floral tiles (P10,269/set) from Gardenia Orchidea in between your single-color tiles. The flowery design adds a unique touch to the usual plain wall, all the while keeping it subtle.
Nothing screams rustic quite like bricks and stones commonly found in outdoor spaces in vintage homes. If you want to achieve the same aged look, look no further than these Stone-effect Wall Tiles (P1,638/box) by Oset. The textured surface utilizes earth tones that can add warmth to any space.
Greyscale made fun
Switch up your minimalist space with these grayscale tiles from Valentia, which come in three shades you can play around. The three colors complement one another to create a multi-dimensional ambience that can fit right in with a variety of materials and textiles. Go for color-blocking or mix them up for an eclectic feel.
Walls come to life with a dash of color and choosing the right shade can instantly liven up a room. These tiles (P2,616.01/box) by Herberia use saturated hues to bring the right vibrance to any surface, be it a gorgeous teal or a deep red. Use them as is for a dramatic look or pair with patterned styles or more simple tiles to create visual interest.
Why not both?
If you can’t choose between wood and patterned tiles, you can decide to keep both and go for a design that’s just the right dash of unique. These Wood-look Tiles (P2,982) by Grupo Halcon can bring the country warmth to your space.
Pair it with Patterned Tiles (P864/box) by Roman and you'll get a modern, experimental touch vibe that's good enough to 'gram!
Pro-tip: Keep your patterned choices in the same color scheme or temperature as your wood to create a smooth transition between the two styles. Warmer woods will look good with yellows and oranges, while woods on the gray end of the spectrum can temper even the coolest of blues and greens just right.
