Let’s see – where were we before Valentine’s Day interrupted our mental design flow?
Oh yes – ( now we have put that to rest! ) we were exploring options in the world of tile: ceramic tile, stone, granite, limestone, porecelain, glass, metal,etc. Today I want to give you one more serious idea.
Do you want to have some fun with a tile project?
Think seriously fun!
Use metal tiles over a large expanse of walls or pare it down to the backsplash, or use it more sparingly as an appreciated piece of fine art. It’s all in the eye of the beholder.
Scroll down and see actual products available as embellishment pieces. When these items are decided upon, quite often the design idea behind it is to repeat other metal objects in the room. . . stainless steel appliances, perhaps, or maybe an oiled bronze chandelier. Go wherever your imagination leads you.
But, pay attention here: USE CAUTION when embellishing. The metal accents are serious pieces to add.
If you walk into a kitchen and the backsplash screams,
“LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!”
then you have made a mistake. You want to add an ornamental element inside your scheme. Balance, balance, balance, is always the goal. You wouldn’t wear ALL your jewelry at one time, would you? Same, same. Observe the power in these accent pieces.
The bathroom below is staged in the simplest of fashion. The metallic tile is crisp and unfettered. The look is uptown, yet prudent , and completely wild with style!
It is just one more way to use metallic tile. And notice there is no overkill in the design. Because the metal tile packs such a visual punch it is capable of holding its own and holding your attention.
No fou-fou required.
Stop in the store to see more seriously fun metallic tile!
FYI: In Hiawatha you can see many of these embellishments installed on the display floor of WOODHARBOR DESIGN SHOWROOM,
located at 1737 Boyson Road.
