So if you’re planning a tiling Project, you could be using the most interesting tiles in the world, but if you’re just using the one design to cover a vast wall or floor space, then it might get a little bit tedious. To help break up a display of wall or floor tiles, it is definitely recommend incorporating some border tiles. Thee are varied and stylish offering to choose from.
As mentioned above, when dealing with your regular wall tile, the more surface area you cover, the less interesting the space becomes. Border tiles are essential when it comes to tiling large areas with the same tile. They help to break up the area, and add interest and character.
For best results, choose a border tile that really complements the larger wall tile. When it comes to breaking up a floor space, border tiles are perfect. However, you don’t need to use border tiles, per say. You can simply use a strand of regular tiles – just ones that are in contrast to the majority of your floor space.
For example, say you’ve chosen to tile your floor with light brown wood effect tiles. However, you feel a whole floor space using those particular tiles would look a little plain, so you want to break it up a bit. You could simply use tiles from the same range, in a darker shade of brown, and use these to build a framed border around or within your floor display.
Another nice touch, when tiling a floor, is to order a little over, and to cut your spare tiles into strips that you can use as skirting tiles around the outside walls. This way, the floor is tied effortlessly into the walls – giving a warming, ‘altogether’ finish.
Choose a composition within your interior design scheme that adds not only style, but structure into your chosen room, a composition with purpose will make a room look less cluttered! Try framing features with lustful shimmering mosaics to make them stand out; vertical strips of glistening tiles will not only add height into your chosen room but contrast against more neutral tiles whilst allowing a display of light around the room.’
Any tile is a border tile
Mosaic tiles make for perfect border tiles. When you think about it, pretty much any tile can double up as a border. Any tile that looks different from the rest of wall or floor display. You could have a strip of black metro tiles crossing a wall of white metro tiles, and you’ve got yourself a border! Put a row of patterned Moroccan tiles through a display of sky blue hexagon mosaics, and you’ve got yourself a border.
Get creative. Mix and match.
