Creative Places to Use Tile That Go Overlooked

It's not uncommon to find tiles in a bathroom or kitchen and maybe you've noticed them in restaurants, lobbies or outdoor patios. Here are a few creative and uncommonplaces for tile application.

On the Ceiling

Did you know ceramic tiles can be installed on ceilings (with the correct setting materials and/or permits)? Often in design projects, lighting and duct work are the only considerations made for one of the largest areas in your space. If you're looking to do something a little different and spruce up this unused goldmine, consider adding tile. It will pique interest and is easy to clean!

Fireplace Surround

Today's innovations in the patterns, colors, design & texture of tiles allows for a high-end look at almost any price point. Tiling a Fireplace Surround is an elegant upgrade well worth the effort. Porcelain tiles with marble aesthetics give your fireplace a magazine-worthy look at an affordable price point.

Accent Wall

Looking to make a bold statement in your living room, den or dining room that doesn't just involve the overused red wall idea? Try an accent wall! You can use mosaics or waterjet tiles to create an element of "drama" that gives a designer-worthy look that your guests won't easily forget. And unlike most wallpapers or paint, tile is a durable material will be incredibly easy to clean for years to come.

A Mirror Frame

Using tiles to frame a mirror is yet another opportunity to use tiles at any price range. Mosaics are perfect to frame a wall or floor-length mirror to create a personalized and cohesive look to any room in your space. If you're looking for a quick and easy DIY project, this is it!
