When I say tile you probably picture a luxurious master bathroom with functional tiles on the floor and perhaps decorative tiles on the walls. But modern tile is ready to come out of the bathroom.
These versatile options bring a fresh look to any room. Here are just of few unexpected ways to bring tile into your home.
Decorate Your Fireplace
Make your fireplace the focal point of the room when you use tile to create a chic pattern. Afraid a wall of tile will be too much? Use tile to create a border around your fireplace or only accent a small area. Mix and match tiles of different sizes and patterns to create a completely unique look.
Create a Headboard
Ready to spruce up your bedroom, but not ready to paint? You can completely change the look of your room by covering your existing headboard with mosaic tile. Create a bold statement when you match small, brightly colored tile with a modern bedroom suite. Bring a bit of old world charm to the room when you use one of the popular mission tile patterns to accent a more traditional dark, hardwood bed frame.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, don’t stop at the headboard. Try creating a headboard silhouette by tiling the wall space where a headboard would typically be. The options for creativity are without limits. You can also cover the sides or tops of your dressers. And the best part of using tile to add texture and depth to your furniture is the ability to take the pieces with you if you move.
Give Your Coffee Table a Makeover
Transform an inexpensive or outdated coffee table into a work of art with mosaic tile. This is a DIY project anyone can do! Not exactly sure about the look you hope to achieve? No problem. Since you are working on a small, flat surface it is easy to play with different colors, textures and patterns of tile until you get the arrangement just right. Then it is time to start gluing.
If the table has a glass top you will want to cut a piece of plywood the same size as the glass to mount the tiles. This will then slip down into the “well” which held the original glass. If the table has just a wooden top you can glue the tile directly to the table top. However, you will need to plan on adding a little molding around the edge to give the piece a more finished look.
Where else can you use tile? You are only limited by your imagination. And once you have seen how flexible tile is, we would love to show you how easy it is to add tile flooring to your home.
