Whether in mosaic style, supersized in natural stone or wood effect finish, or in flamboyant geometrical patterns, tiles are no longer confined to the bathroom and kitchen but can be a feature of any living space. Their current popularity owes more to their decorative properties, but still nothing beats tiles for easy cleaning and maintenance. If you’re looking to add a truly individual touch, you can always hunt down some vintage tiles. Create a personal work of art in the form of a tiled mirror – perhaps on the wall behind the stove. When it comes to floors, a trend first seen in hotels and restaurants is now making its way into homes: wooden floorboards combined with floor tiles in a wonderfully vivid fusion of styles.
