3 Clever Places to Use Tile in Your Home, Lihue, Hawaii

When you think of tile in the home, a bathroom or kitchen floor likely come to mind. While tile is an excellent flooring material for these messy spaces, it has plenty of potential in other uses. Consider a few other ways to add ceramic or glass tiles in your home for a unique and beautiful result.

Unique Ways to Incorporate Tiles

1. Fireplace Surround

Tile makes for an elegant and affordable fireplace surround. You can continue your floor tile up the wall and around the fireplace to tie the room together or use a different material to create a dramatic focal point. If you use porcelain tile, look for a material certified by the Porcelain Tile Certification Agency© (PTCA), which tells you that the material can withstand the heat from the fire.

2. Statement Wallglass tiles

Whether it’s behind the vanity in your bathroom or a full wall in your bedroom, tile makes a stunning statement wall. Lay it from floor to ceiling for the most dramatic effect and choose a material that reflects your design style. For example, Moroccan painted tiles create a traditional look while glass tiles are best for contemporary homes.

3. Ceiling Adornment

A gorgeous tile across the ceiling draws the eye upward and makes a room appear larger. Since most homes have plain white ceilings, making a statement here will create a unique focal point and conversation starter. Be sure to select a color that matches your space. The glass tiles you choose should tie into your flooring, furniture, and decor,  giving the room a cohesive, intentional aesthetic, rather than feeling random.
