Patchwork Tiles – Mix And Match Your Favorite Colors For A Personalized Look

Sure, decorating with simple, monochromatic tiles has its perks but how about a more unusual approach? Don’t let your home become just another predictable space for your guests to add to the list. Use pattern and colors or, better yet, mix and match them for a unique look. Need a little bit of inspiration? Try these ideas:

Bring the fun outdoors.

If your kitchen is big enough to also incorporate a breakfast nook, try to make that particular space stand out and look different from the rest of the room. You can do that with tiles. Since it’s a tiny space, maybe you can gather some leftover pieces featuring different colors and designs.

You can use different colors of tiles to delimit the areas in the bathrooms

Usually, in the bathroom, the walls are either partially or entirely covered with tiles. Either way, this gives you the perfect opportunity to put this new plan into action. Create a playful mosaic of colors on one of the walls, on the floor or cover the exterior of the tub with the tiles you’ve chosen.

I personally think tiles are the best material to use for the entryway floor. They’re easy to clean and this way all the mess stays contained. But being practical doesn’t also mean you have to be conservative when decorating. Here are some fun ways of using tiles for this area of the house.

The way you mix and match the tiles doesn’t have to follow a pattern

If I had to pick a place where to use patchwork tiles in my kitchen it would be the backsplash. It’s the perfect accent feature to use as focal point for the room. If the furniture is simple and neutral, then the backsplash takes center stage. And you only need a few tiles so you can use leftovers from other projects.

An unconventional bedroom

It’s not very common to use tiles in the bedroom, especially on the walls. However, this look can work if, for example, your bedroom has an industrial-inspired interior design. Then you can cover an entire wall with tiles. But don’t make it look boring. The material is unusual for this room so make the design look interesting too.

In the case of the living room, there are more options for using tiles than you think. If you have a fireplace for example, then you can turn that wall or portion of it into a focal point for the room using patchwork tiles. Another option can be to use tiles on the floor or on the ceiling.
