Design Trends: Tiled Accent Walls

By Kali

Looking for a way to make a more dramatic statement in your home? A tiled accent wall will most certainly do the trick. Accent walls can be extensions of a kitchen or bathroom backsplash or an entity all their own. You can also consider treating tile like you might wallpaper and install it in a more unexpected location in your home. You can create a wall with a pattern, a geometric shape or one of our Handpainted Collections.

With a Pattern:
You can create an accent wall with a pattern in either a white or vibrant hue, depending on what works best in your home. Any of our Brick, Glass or Tile colors could work for this concept!

For a look similar to the one above, you could try our White Gloss or White Wash in 2x8. Below, the homeowner has tiled the breakfast nook wall that is across from the main backplash, in a classic offset pattern.

Brick is a classic choice for an accent wall; you can opt for an offset or straight set pattern depending on your style. These sorts of walls look amazing as a backdrop in a living room, bedroom or kitchen setting.

The geometric trend is in here to stay and we've got several specialty shapes that are a perfect way to express it.

With Handpainted Tiles:

Like Brick, Handpainted accent walls are another classic choice for a tiled accent wall. We have many patterns to choose from in this department! We love how the installation below incorporates both handpainted and solid colored tiles.
