In one way or another, flowers have been used to decorate homes around the world for centuries. They are timeless and while designs may change over time, flowers are almost always in style. This makes flowers a wonderful addition to home decor in both modern and traditional period homes. Whatever your choice of interior design style – rustic, vintage, shabby chic or contemporary, flowers have something for everyone. Combine them with the durability and longevity of ceramic wall tiles and flower tiles are a brilliant choice for the tiled areas in a kitchen, bathroom, conservatory or utility room.
Styles of Flower Tiles
There are lots of geometric, symmetrical and abstract flower tiles available, such as traditional Moroccan flower tiles:
At Floral Tiles, we like softer, prettier and more detailed flower designs.
For those looking to decorate in a feminine, romantic “shabby chic” style, there are lots of flower tiles with soft pinks, blues and greens – many of which were originally painted in watercolours, giving them a delicate hand-painted effect.
There are also many flower tiles with designs based on antique botanical illustrations. These might be ideal for keen gardeners and botanists, or fans of vintage decor – perhaps someone re-decorating a Victorian (or other period) home.
Here we have seen over thirty flower tiles ideas and there are dozens more in our online shop, including Wisteria, Lilac, Camellia, Daffodils, Harebells, Violets, Pansies, Forget-Me-Nots and Primroses!
