Designers are also reimagining tile as an accent for other areas beyond the usual spots, like the kitchen and bathroom. It’s an easy and eye-catching decorative element that works beautifully in lots of other areas throughout the whole home too.
Add it in the Entryway It’s the first spot you see when you walk in, so the entryway is the perfect place to make a big impact with design. And as much as we love hardwood, few things are more welcoming—or striking—than a foyer floor decked out with a statement tile. Cover a few square feet with a colorful pick or use black and white for a graphic twist on the classic palette.
Maybe the Laundry Room
Sure, the laundry room is the workhorse of your house, but that doesn’t meanyou can’t have a little fun in there too—it’s actually an ideal spot to experiment and take design risks. Whether your go-to shades are chic neutrals or you’re more of a bold, saturated-color type, a tiled backsplash will make you smile even when you’re folding that eighth load of clothes.
