In Focus: Pattern


Influenced by recent trends popular in fashion, patchwork and pattern continues to be a key trend in surface design. With many of our tiles featuring everything from bright and bold patterns to subtle and delicate designs, we're here to help you incorporate some pattern into your home.

Introducing pattern into your home can be daunting, especially if you're redecorating a whole room. But fear not, a splash of colour or decorative design can really transform a space and create a look that's unique to your home. Whether you're planning on creating a statement feature wall or a simple hint of pattern, they key is to choose a style that reflects you and your home, and will also stand the test of time.

There are many ways to weave pattern into interiors to create a distinctive look, with walls and floors being the key areas these styles can work really well. Our Henley range is very different in feel – one inspired by traditional hand-painted terracotta tiles and the other by classic encaustics of the Victorian era – but both achieve a timeless yet on-trend look.

Drawing inspiration from traditional hand-painted terracotta tiles, Henley is made using the latest inkjet technology replicating a handmade, hand decorated piece, with uneven edges and an aged appearance. The delicate colour palette adds rustic charm to any setting.

Our Henley range is inspired by the decorated floors of the Victoria and Edwardian eras. These bold and eye-catching tiles, exclusive to Topps Tiles, are the perfect way to create a bygone era in your home, yet they'll more than stand up to the modern family's need for durability and fuss-free fitting.

Another way to introduce pattern, on a smaller scale or to complement the designs on your tiles, is to collect some home accessories such as cushions, artwork or rugs that reflect the same tone or pattern as your chosen tiles. This will really bring the look together and create a distinctive theme in your room. Accessories also have the advantage of being relatively easy to change, so can be replaced at different times of the year depending on seasonality. This will keep your home looking fresh and clean, with a very stylish patterned backdrop on your wall or floor.

Our wide range of styles means there's something for every home and budget. If you'd like to get an idea of what your chosen tiles may look like in your home, or simply play with designs to find one that's right for you – try our new inspirational Visualiser.
