Patchwork Tiles – Monochrome

Stemming from the current trend of “everything vintage”, Patchwork Tiles have emerged as one of most quirky and fashionable trends for the year ahead.

Since the gorgeous encaustic tiles, inspired by the traditional Moroccan tiles, became one of the favourite design trends in the last few years, we have seen so many uses of them in so many different ways. The tiled patchwork walls and floors are not really a new trend, they’ve been around for a while, being a very popular choice to add colour and pattern to many traditional European homes. What is new is the monochromatic combination of tiles, that in spite of having different patterns they share a similar colour scheme, usually in mute tones.

While multi-coloured encaustic tiles create a joyful patchwork effect in any room, the monochromatic combinations look like a more refine and elegant choice. The smaller the tile is the better sense of rhythm the pattern creates. In spite of its subtle tones, the richness of their patterned designs could make the space look too busy if they are used on every single wall, but these patchwork tiled wall would be a gorgeous design statement on one single wall or as kitchen splashback.Patchwork tiles are the perfect way to create a statement in any room and are effective as either a floor or wall feature. By using in different patterns, repeated or jumbled, patchwork and patterned tiles are great for creating a “rug” effect within a neutral surrounding tile.

Patchwork tiles are easily adaptable and most designs work equally as well in modern spaces as well as more traditional properties in areas such as hallways and conservatories.
