My passion for interior design and decor is always evolving. I can’t help it but I am always on the look out for new ideas and new ways to create a unique space. From finding the best interior decor trends, like using velvet, to creating a one of a kind space using stone split face tiles I’m always looking for ways to make my home cosy and reflect my style.
That being said, I’ve realised that the part of my place that I neglect most is the walls. Sure, a lick of paint helps create the tone and wallpaper makes an impact but what about really setting the tone for the rest of the room by creating a feature wall using tiles and bricks?
Brick Walls / Exposed Brick
Exposed brick may have first hit the scene as part of the hipsters loft movement but it’s now, and has always been, a great way to add texture and that special something to your walls. The versatility of brick slips makes it a good way to combine texture as well as pick a colour that matches your scheme. From a traditional red brick to create a more laid back and cosy design to a cool white that helps any modern room come together I really like the duality it provides – colour and texture, you just can’t go wrong.
Stone Split Face Tiles
Another way to add even more texture and colour to your walls is by opting for stone split face tiles. The tiles are perfect for a more modern design and can help add that modern luxe look to any space. The tiles can be used to create a faux chimney breast or even to only highlight a small bit of wall. Personally, I would love to use them as a way to make a small entryway pop or even as part of the facade for my exterior walls.
Why Choose Brick and Stone Tiles?
Brick and stone tiles are on the list of what would make my dream house a reality. The best bit is that if you are an avid DIY-er, or even a rubbish wannabe DIY-er like me, you can sort out the wall yourself. All you need is strong adhesive and grout!
The quick & easy installation option is a huge reason why I would much rather create a feature wall using brick and stone tiles than go the route of wallpapering. Sure, painting may be easier but you won’t get that pop that a textured wall can give you.
The versatility is also a big bonus. You can use the tiles, either stone or brick, indoors or even use them to create an outdoor wall that pops. I am sold on the tiles and I suppose the most difficult decision is actually choosing what style to go for and what colour to select! The good thing is that it’s super simple to get samples of the tiles to help you create the look that you are going for.
