Tile Trends: 3 Ways to Raise Your Stair Style

When it comes to renovations, your stairs can easily be overlooked. However, with just the right amount of inspiration and DIY know-how, your stairs can become the favorite part of your home. It's also a great way to incorporate some of your favorite Handpainted tile designs without breaking the bank. Ready to step up your stair game? These inspiring and oh-so-chic tile trends are sure to give you a running start.

1. Two-Toned Tile

This graphic Southwestern-inspired pattern feels bold and modern when paired with a contrasting black and white color palette.

Can't decide on just one Handpainted design? Don't be afraid to mix and match different patterns! Keeping it down to a black and white palette will help the space feel cohesive and contemporary. 

2. Triangles

We recently introduced triangles to our product line, and we can't get enough of them. They're surprisingly versatile, giving you the option to create chevron designs like in the stairs above. Tiles are also a great exterior design solution, adding beautiful character to your space.

Pairing the two-toned trend with triangles is also a great way to amp up your stair game. The variation of the glazes offer a slightly rustic depth to this winding and hypnotic design.

3. Spanish-Inspired

Handpainted tile is a natural complement to Spanish Colonial style. Complementing classic design elements like six-pointed stairs and decorative iron railings, these eye-catching stair raisers add a fresh pop of color to this Old World-Inspired entryway.

Another example of outdoor stair raisers, these handpainted tiles help create continuity between the indoors and the outdoors. We love how the colors pop against the warm terra cotta tile.

Tucked away in a lushly covered entrance, this beautiful pairing of handpainted and solid tile feels like a hidden piece of art.
