Opt for Texture
Feature walls are also a great choice to experiment with texture. Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are great choices as they come in various colours, sizes but also textures to suit your home identity, style and design ambitions.
Get Creative With Your Tile Pattern
In the bathroom shower you could use mosaic or an interesting pattern such as herringbone to create a stylish space.
You could even do this above a fireplace for a real wow factor in the living area. Subway tiles are a great choice as there are so many patterns you can make.
Choose a Distinct Finish
Your surface finish is just as important to consider for your feature wall.
A glossy finish or glazed ceramics will reflect, be slippery and have a shine which could create an elegant and sophisticated look.
A matt finish is more of a natural and organic look which can offer a contrast to say white surrounding walls.
Satin finishes are in between and are less reflective however can just have as much impact.
An exposed brick feature wall can add retro charm to most any room.
Using tiles to achieve this look is far more practical as they’ll last longer, and be easier to clean.
Elegance Tiles has a number of brick-look subway tiles that can create this aesthetic.
Fine details can really stand out too. Small mosaics or geometric motifs work brilliantly to delight the eye, as do vertical or diagonal herringbone arrangements.
And it’s not just interiors that can benefit from wall tiles – rugged, striking or calming effects can also be achieved using a feature facade in your outdoor areas as well.
