Tiles are pretty, practical, and can be used in unexpected places for a large-impact finish. You may be familiar with a tile backsplash, but what about the whole wall? These seven projects use tile in ways that shift tile’s role in the room from accent to focal point. Creating an accent wall – or ceiling even – of beautiful tiles (try mixing two types to divide the wall) can create a worldly setting for a sophisticated room. I love the example in the very last photo – a larger-scale pattern provides a graphic backdrop behind the bed. The patterns are endless and the possibilities are wide open when you consider tile’s practical application for any surface. Small scale patterns can provide sharp style, while Moroccan designs can add hint of bohemian romance to your space. Do any of these tiled rooms strike your fancy?
