Are you looking for a way to add some life to a room? To bring some fun to a otherwise dull space? Then bring on the pattern! With so many choices, there is bound to be a patterned tile that will fit your personality.
One of the best places to add a little flair to an otherwise task oriented room, is the laundry room. Let’s face it, laundry rooms are no longer pushed to the farthest darkest corners of a home but rather placed in the heart of the home. If your’s is down in that corner, then even more reason to add a splash of pattern!
Make this space fun to be in!
Another place to consider using a patterned tile is in a back entrance or maybe even the front foyer if it is small and a bit of excitement is needed to highlight the space. Small areas are a perfect place for pattern.
The key to using patterned tile is to use it sparingly. I would not consider putting a patterned tile in a large shower, it would become overwhelming and potentially date itself very quickly. I would even caution using it on backsplashes if you have a lot of it.
A small backsplash area or a small section to highlight an area is totally cool in my book.
And don’t forget the fireplace! It’s the perfect place to add some pattern. I just finished my lower level and chose a patterned tile to highlight the main focal point of the room.
So what do you think? Can you handle a little pattern in your life? My advice: use it sparingly, wisely and keep it classic. And have some fun!
