Top Tile Trends and Application

Looking to add a fun design detail or focal interest to your space? Or looking for something to tie together elements in a room? Look no further than tile! Whether you are seeking tile for a kitchen backsplash, shower, or floor, there are a ton of amazing options.  Join us as we explore and highlight ways to add decorative tile to your spaces with current trends!


Backsplash Tile:

What better way to add interest to your backsplash space than through the incorporation of variation in pattern, color, and texture?!

Case in point, check out this full tile backsplash wall that includes taps to a hidden brew room behind the wall. Part of a lower-level bar area, the use of neutral geometric shapes allows this feature wall to appear to be three-dimensional. See more photos and learn the details behind this lower-level remodel project named ‘The Lively.’


Tile doesn’t always have to play a background role, it can also be used to make a statement. In this kitchen remodel project named ‘The Adventurer’, we incorporate a patterned glazed ceramic tile behind the cooktop which seamlessly flows into the surrounding gray subway tile backsplash. The fun pop of pattern draws your eye, adding visual interest to the kitchen space.


Don’t be afraid to get creative with your tile selection! ⁣This beveled antique glass tile makes a beautiful decorative element in our client’s Irish pub-inspired bar. Read more about this lower-level project, ‘The Irishman.’


Bathroom Tile:

Want your bathroom to take center stage with details that make it stand out? Whether this is using a neutral color palette or a pop of color, either can add visual interest to your bathroom space!

This elegant Master Suite Bathroom remodel project was nothing short of glamorous! 24″ x 48″ shower wall tile is extended along the full wall to create a large design feature within the space. Want a designer tip? Consider adding tile to the ceiling in the shower space as we did here. This allows the glass to seamlessly connect to the soffit and will lend the space a clean and completed feel as it does in this project.


Who says a shower space has to be neutral colored? Liven up your bathroom shower space with the addition of a bold pop of color! Our client’s goal with this lower-level space was to create an environment full of life, excitement, and happiness! The grid stacking layout of the green subway tile with the contrast against the small white geometric tiles makes this small space come alive!


Tile as Decorative Accents:

Tile doesn’t have to just be applied in kitchen and bathroom spaces! Tile can be used in a variety of applications dependent on material and application method.

How fun are these decorative accent ceiling tiles?! These tin tiles added the perfect vintage touch to our project, ‘The Irishman’, a lower-level bar area with a drop-down ceiling feature.


With a twist of inspiration from a recent stay in Amsterdam, our clients for this lower-level remodel came to us wanting a bright and fresh perspective. The previous space was dark, cold, somewhat rustic, and featured a fireplace that took up way too much space. The revamp, a fresh take full of local art, color & inspiration, included an overhaul of the fireplace into a major focal point, featuring modern, three-dimensional tile.
