If you are looking for the perfect wall tiles for your home decor, you may have noticed that there are a huge number of designs and styles when it comes to patterned tiles, from traditional Moroccan and Mexican tiles to Victorian patterns and modern designs. Some patterned tiles can create a larger pattern when used together, some are individual little pieces of art in their own right.

Floral prints have long been a popular part of interior design in people’s homes, so pairing wall tiles with floral designs is a wonderful combination. Here, we are going to look at some ideas for using floral patterned tiles in home decor.

The Advantages of Patterned Tiles

There are some rooms in the home where creating a feature wall is a bit more challenging. For example, using patterned wallpaper in kitchens and bathrooms isn’t overly practical as the moisture and humidity can damage the wallpaper over time. In rooms such as these, patterned tiles can be an attractive and durable alternative.

Patterned tiles can be mixed and matched to create unique and beautiful patchwork patterns too, making them popular with fans of eclectic or maximal interior design. They allow the addition of colour and interest to an otherwise plain wall.

With the patterned wall tiles available today, it should be possible to find the ideal ones to match your chosen home decor style – whether that is vintage or modern, in a period or contemporary home, a country or town house. If you are still undecided about the style you’d like, I hope you’ll find some inspiration in the following ideas.

Individual Patterned Tiles

Perfect for mixing and matching to create beautiful patchwork pattern feature walls, these tiles have their own individual patterns.

Patterned Tiles – Seamless Patterns

Here we will look at some tiles which are ‘seamless’ – or create a larger pattern when placed together. The grout lines do break up the pattern of course, but there are a huge range of coloured grouts available nowadays, which can help with the pattern effect.
