Tile accents are a great way to add a touch of elegance and unique flare to your custom home design. They are also exceptionally durable and versatile materials and are well-suited for use throughout your home. By incorporating tile accents in specific areas, you can create a beautiful, cohesive design that showcases your personal style. Here are some of the most practical (and fabulous) ways to incorporate tile accents into your custom home design, or more precisely:
Your Walk-in Shower:
One of the most popular places to add tile accents to your custom home design is your shower units. You can add a custom waterfall design or tile accent trim to create a clean, organized look without sacrificing pizazz. You can also create a tiled niche in the shower for your bathing accessories or build a whole “feature wall.”
Incorporating tile accents around your bathtub can add an elegant touch to your bathroom design. With a clawfoot tub, you can create a floor design specifically around the tub. With an inset bathtub, the tile around at least one side of the tub can create a ledge and connect seamlessly with the wall.
A unique way to add tile accents to your custom home design is to surround your mirror with a custom mosaic. This design move works best for stationary or built-in mirrors, and you can choose a design theme and change the color for each one to match the decor in each room.
As mentioned, tile flooring is quite durable but easy to clean, making it a great entryway option. By creating a small area of tile for your entrance, you can add a personalized touch that will impress visitors.
Your kitchen is one of the best spots for tiling to shine in your home. Tile “backsplashes” are a trendy interior design element in kitchens. They can range from simple to intricate designs and naturally lend an elegant, stylish vibe to your kitchen design. Adding tile accents to the side surface of a raised-level kitchen island can beautify your kitchen without overwhelming the room or sacrificing functionality. You can also wrap the base of your kitchen island for a more pronounced effect.
A fireplace offers several opportunities for incorporating tile accents. Additionally, integrating them into the mantel or surrounding the entire fireplace is perfect for creating a statement look. You can make mosaics, select from attractive patterns and abstract designs, or even have a “picture” of your own choosing.
Without great expense or hassle, incorporating tile accents into your custom home design can add that specific something to make your home feel more like yours. Also, we certainly hope you’ll consider tile accents when looking to elevate your home decor to the next level.
