Tiles & Wallpaper: A Match Made in Heaven?

When it comes to decorating your home, there are plenty of ways to get creative with design. 

Tiles and wallpaper offer a distinct partnership so that you can make a unique imprint on your space. By combining the two together, you can create a unique and vibrant design combination that could transform a room or entire house.

In this article, we’ll be taking you through some of the reasons why we think tiles and wallpapers are a match made in heaven. We'll be offering advice on ways for you to work this fusion into your own home for maximum effect.

Coordinate Your Tiles and Wallpaper with Colour

Colours are key when decorating. With a huge range of colours and designs available for both tiles and wallpaper, you’ll have the freedom to decorate as subtly or obviously as you’d like.

Go minimal with lighter or texture-mimicking wallpaper from the waist-up and pair this with neat decorative wall tiles for a stylish and unique finish.  If you’re aiming for an eye-catching finish, try pairing a brighter and busier wallpaper with neutral floor tiles that complement the wallpaper's accent colours. This will make both surfaces pop!

You should prevent rooms from looking too busy by making sure you don’t overwhelm spaces with bright wallpaper and large, bright tiles. Instead, try using smaller tiles in black, navy or white when matching them with a busy and vibrant wallpaper.

Match Your Style

Tiles and wallpaper can be an amazing way to complement the existing aesthetic in your home. If you’re trying to achieve a homely home, try matching vintage-style floor tiles with a classic patterned wallpaper.

If you prefer the rustic trend, pair white metro wall tiles with a brick wall mural. For a contemporary finish team with wood trims or thin shelves separating the two designs.

Modern and contemporary looks can be easily achieved using a plain floor tile and bright wallpaper combination. This will allow the wall colours to stand out against the more simplistic flooring base.

Let Your Imagination Run Wild

With so many wallpapers and tiles to choose from, it can be easy to let your imagination run wild - and that’s exactly what we’d encourage you to do! There are hundreds of tile and wallpaper design combinations you could consider. Use your window frame as a focal point and design your wall theme around this area of a room or use wood-effect tiles as a backdrop to a rustic wall masterpiece.

You’ll never be short of ideas when it comes to using these two home interior design styles. Why not be bold in your design choices and impress guests by standing out from the crowd?

The combination of tiles and wallpaper, while not a new concept, is rapidly growing in popularity. It is set to be one of many trending design ideas in 2017! With a vast range of design combinations, moderate pricing and options to suit any style, it’s a fantastic alliance in rooms that need a new lease of life.
