Why vintage-style tiles work in any room…

Corner Bar Area With Counter Stools And Geometric Wall Tiles Copy

One of the most versatile looks for any home, vintage tiles have been immensely popular in recent years. Bold geometric patterns work on walls and floors, in any room and with any kind of look, whether you’re going for contemporary or trying to capture some art deco glamour. Here’s how to make a statement with the latest patterned tiles…

 

Bold is beautiful

Hallway tiles are the perfect way to make an impact when you open the door and step into your home. A patterned look draws the eye and is perfectly at home in both modern and period homes. You can highlight the original features of your Victorian-era property or add an injection of retro style to a more recent build

If you’re tiling the floor, you’ll want something hard-wearing such as glazed porcelain – made for high traffic areas and simple to clean. Same goes for hallway walls – you can point up a wooden floor by lining the walls with tiles, and the strength of porcelain is ideal for an area where you’ll be carrying items in and out of the house.

Stylish Bathroom With Black And White Floor Tiles Copy

While stunning looks are paramount, it’s important that you choose something that does a practical job too. When it comes to bathroom tiles, that means something that looks the part but won’t make you take a tumble every time they get wet. Tiles in the Retromix range have a minimum slip resistance of R10 – which means they work well in bathrooms and wet rooms. Monochrome patterns are a classic style for bathroom floors, but you can also opt for a feature wall or give a shower room a funky triangular look.

 

Cooking up something special

A Kitchen Decorated In White With Vintage Look Floor Tiles Copy

The kitchen is the hub of many a home, a place not just to eat but to meet, relax and be social, whether with your family or guests. Therefore wall and floor tiles can really elevate this room, with spectacular splashbacks or patterns that can lift a corner and make it a focal point. Black and white kitchen tiles complement a monochrome look, but also contrast perfectly with a blast of colour elsewhere, such as bright retro fridges. Drop-dead good looks with wipe-clean, stain-resistant glazing is the best of both worlds for a kitchen makeover.

If you’re looking to take your tiles to the next level, explore the Retromix collection for looks that work in every room and surface.
