Guide to Install Textured Tile for Every Corner of Your House
TYPES OF TEXTURE TILES
When picking art tile to add texture, many people feel overwhelmed with so many variations and styles.
Let’s explore the different types of tiles:
Mosaic Tiles: Mosaic tiles are a valued way to create minimalist and natural decor. You can pick tiny tiles to fashion into a variety of designs or create an art wall.
Linear Tiles: If you are drawn to a more modern appearance that is clean, then you’ll favor horizontal lines that are repeated across the surface of the room. The pattern of linear tiles makes a room feel more elongated and provides a more expansive feel to the space.
Wave tiles: The soft raised lines of a wave tile mimic the undulating waters of the ocean to create a calming effect which is perfect for a bedroom or bathroom. The tiles automatically create visual interest in any room.
Wood: Everyone loves the warmth and rustic ambiance of wood, but it often packs a high price tag. However, tiles fashioned to look like wood are becoming very popular. They look exceptional in a study or living room. The wood-look tiles even boast the grooves and lines of natural wood which makes it difficult to tell the two apart.
CHOOSING TEXTURE TILES
There are a few things to consider when picking the perfect texture tiles for your floor or wall.
PICKING THE RIGHT TILE FOR THE AREA
You’ll want to make sure the tile that you choose is correct for the space. Always pick slip-resistant tiles for the bathroom or living room where the tiles might become wet and pose a danger.
CONSIDER THE FEEL YOU ARE CREATING
Think about the feel and look you want to achieve with the textured tile. If your home is very minimalistic then go with linear tiles to form very clean lines. However, if you have a rustic home that is mountain-themed then wooden-look wall tiles or floor tiles are a great choice.
THE SIZE OF THE ROOM
A small area looks larger with textured tiles. If you are creating mosaic wall art, remember that the various tones and texture might make the space seem cluttered. To achieve a bigger look, reduce the size of the tile you are using or go with rectangular tiles.
