Five Ways To Style - Andira

Wood effect tiles are increasingly popular as printing technology becomes more advanced; our Andira tiles expertly replicate small wood planks whilst being easier to maintain when compared to real wood.

How do our customers love to use Andira? Parquet or herringbone is the way to go with this amazing wood effect tile and we'll show you five different ways to style it!

 

The Statement Tub

A small family bathroom doesn't have to be completely functional and boring! Use a palette of muted tones to keep the room feeling spacious and airy but then create a bit of drama with a statement tub, this orange hued delight really connects all the different tones in the room together.

The Andira floor tile, laid in a vertical herringbone, makes the room seem longer whilst the wood grain keeps it warm and friendly! We love the bit of pattern sneaking in via a well-placed towel and floral roller blind.

Modern Heritage

The Andira tile will provide a modern feel to a traditional space. Floor to ceiling kitchen units are great for storage but also look amazing in traditional settings like a Georgian property; we love this deep grey shade contrasting with the warm wood grain, tie the look together with distressed leather accessories.

Keep the wow factor going by tiling your hallway with a Victorian style pattern like Berkeley Charcoal and modern white walls; the painted skirting lends a little polish to the finished look.

The Striped Hallway

Playing with proportions can really change the look of your home. The horizontal herringbone in this hallway widens it whilst the beautiful striped runner draws the eye up the stairs and throughout the room. We love the deep black-blue woodwork contrasting with the bright white of the wall; it feels like a cohesive scheme that has timeless appeal without having to be typical monochrome.

Finish the look with a statement light fitting to wow guests as they come in the door and add little touches of brass through switches and door handles for that touch of class.

Shades of Pink

Heritage bathrooms can still have a modern touch by using different shades of the same colour, for example pink. Seen as the new neutral, play with darker and lighter shades together, it will actually make your room feel bigger as it draws the eye around. The rest of the room can be kept neutral but still full of texture and interest with the use of a grey marble like Serac and a herringbone floor. The deep tones of the Andira tile pull together the differing colours to create a harmonious scheme. We love these traditional glass wall lights and the marble basin!

The Modern Bathroom

White Metro tiles are a contemporary design staple, mix with a dark grout and chrome and you're on to a winner. We love the way the modernity has contrasted with a heritage feel; the wood panelled bath in a deep blue shade, the darker toilet seat and the more heritage style taps, all the little details make all the difference!

To create a cohesive scheme you can choose an accent colour that is used around the room, we love this hit of ochre in the towels, bath mat and plant pots (even the bath products!) as the deeper colours in the fixtures tone it down and make it look more expensive than if it were used with white alone.
