If you are looking for floral wall tile ideas to create a unique tiled wall for a new kitchen, bathroom or conservatory, we have lots of Hydrangea tiles ideas for you here. They are all based on tiles available from Floral Tiles and using them, a huge number of pattern combinations are possible. Here, we look at just a few of the many possible tile patterns – to inspire you to design your perfect tiled wall!
Hydrangeas in Home Decor
With beautiful colours and large, luxuriant blooms, Hydrangea designs on wall tiles are a gorgeous addition to home decor. The pretty flowers have a vintage or “shabby chic” feel. If you’re anything like me, they evoke childhood memories of gardens in summer and Hydrangea fabric patterns seem to be in many old family photos – on curtains and cushions and even sofas.
Hydrangeas can be a slightly more unusual alternative (or addition to) roses or other flowers in interior design. These Hydrangea tile ideas include pinks, blues and greens, making them a versatile choice for a range of colour schemes. Just like many flowers, Hydrangeas are timeless, so including this flower in your tiled wall design will help them look fresh and beautiful for a lifetime.
What do Hydrangeas Symbolise?
Before permanently adding them to your walls, it’s worth checking that Hydrangeas symbolise qualities that you want in your home. First, a bit about the flowers themselves. There are about 75 species today and, fossilised examples from 60 million years ago have been found (so the flowers definitely qualify as “vintage”!). Some species have different colour flowers depending on the acidity of the soil they are planted in; acidic soil produces blue/purple flowers and alkaline soils produce pink/red flowers. Hydrangea root has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries – to treat kidney conditions and bronchitis, among other things.
Due to the shape of the flower, Hydrangeas are often likened to a beating heart. They symbolise genuine emotion, being grateful and gaining a deeper understanding of loved ones.
Hydrangea Tile Ideas
Blues, pinks, greens, single flowers, ditsy patterns or eclectic patchwork masterpieces, here are just a few possible combinations. We hope they inspire you to design a tiled wall that you will love for a lifetime…
Single Flower Patterns
To add a smaller, relatively subtle touch of floral design to your room, single flower tiles could work well. With a single floral image on a white background, they could be dotted here and there among plain white (or coloured) tiles.
Can’t choose between bold blues and subtle pinks? How about mixture of both:
Patterned Hydrangea Tiles
Now we begin to be a little less subtle and a little more bold with the designs! Here are some examples of Hydrangea tiles which can be placed together to create larger patterns. Some of the “busier” designs could work well as a statement sink splashack:
Checkered Tile Patterns
If some of these patterns are a bit much for a whole wall, they could be toned down by creating a checkered pattern using plain white (or other colour) tiles. Here are a few possibilities:
Eclectic Tile Patterns
Here, fans of maximalist design can really let their creativity loose and design patterns with several different tiles, resulting in a patchwork effect. There are so many possible combinations that it is impossible to show examples of them all here. The exciting thing is that with a bit of imagination, you are almost certainly going to have your own completely unique tiled wall! We have made four patterns which we hope inspire you to incorporate a wall into your home decor project which is not just another boring old tiled wall, but a statement – something to enjoy looking at for many years to come.
