If you don’t want the walls in your home to look ordinary, like every other home in the neighborhood, you need to get innovative. One way to do that is to use tile to create fabulous works of for your rooms.

Ways to Use Tile for Wall Art

One Tile Slab

If you have a massive, empty wall in your entryway or somewhere in a formal living space within your home, consider mounting a slab of granite to the wall. Because granite tile is very heavy, you’ll want to hire a professional to make sure it’s attached correctly. Granite comes in many colors and designs, so you can choose one that will perfectly fit your décor. The beauty of a granite slab is unsurpassed and will provide a unique and luxurious look to your home.

Same Sized Tile Squares

You can also create art pieces using square tiles of the same size. Choose different colors and patterns and arrange them in a rectangular, square, or diamond pattern on one or more walls. These tiles will add a distinctive look to your décor, and you won’t find an exact match in anyone else’s home. Try it out in your master bedroom or your family room to dress up one wall and make it a focal point.

Combine different sizes of square tiles into one gorgeous arrangement. You can select large, medium, and small squares and place them into an exceptional geometric design. For example, arrange medium squares in a border pattern, followed by rows of large tiles along the interior of the border. Separate each of those rows with a line of small tiles. You’ll end up with a fantastic rectangular design. For the best flow, use square tiles with the same thickness. For a three-dimensional look, opt for tiles with a variety of depths.

Small Glass Tiles

Glass is a beautiful addition to almost any home. You can create art pieces for your walls using various colors of glass tiles. Mix and match the small tiles into an art piece of your desired size. This type of art will resemble jewels on the wall and will look great in a bathroom, utility room, or kitchen. For homes with an ultra-modern style, glass tile art will even work well in a living area.

Tiles that you use for wall art will never go out of style. You can custom-design the pieces how you want, so the art in your home is unique. The tile on your walls will add elegance and sophistication to any room. You’ll fall in love with the expensive look and so will your family and friends.
