Pattern is a great way to add vibrancy to your home, we show you five ways to use our Moorish-inspired Batik range in different parts of the home to create a multitude of looks.
Every Nook and Cranny
Alcoves are a great way to build in storage, but they don't have to be boring. Tile the back of the space with a small format patterned tile like Batik, pick one hue, even if you mix the pattern, to keep the look chic. Don't like white grout? Bring out the blue with a soft blush toned grout that will soften the edges of the tile. Pairing the look with rustic shelving will give a nod to a modern country home.
The Downstairs WC
If you're lucky enough to have a downstairs loo, then have a little fun with the space and give it an eclectic on-trend makeover. Create a tiling feature like the above and play with exposed copper piping to create an industrial style space. Jump on the pink bandwagon and give the little room a pop of colour; using a darker grey grout will keep the look modern and industrial, not girly and twee!
A Focal Point
Tiles aren't just for kitchens and bathrooms, tile your fireplace with Batik Grey for a modern Scandi feel. It works perfectly with mid-century style furniture and most wall colours. For a minimalist look try tiling just inside the fireplace surround, paint the wall behind in a tonal paint colour and then place a boxy mirror on the mantel. For a pop of colour add some greenery, like Monstera leaves, in a cool vase.
Create a contemporary monochrome kitchen that won't date. A thick strip of Batik Black tiles looks effortlessly cool when paired with sleek matt white cupboards and a slim worktop. Continue the monochrome vibe with black kitchen gadgets and clear glass adding a homely feel with a few rustic chopping boards. We love Smeg's range of kitchen gadgets in gloss black.
The Dinner Party
Dress your dining room like you have a dinner party every day, invest in a solid table to fit all the family and layer it up with fancy plates, vintage tableware and splashes of colour. Create your own coasters by adding tiny sticky feet to the base of a tile and then mix and match designs to suit your scheme.
