Tiles that create the ‘glam’ factor

The latest trends include tiles with Swarovski crystal inserts and the ability to have your choice of tiles cut with water jet technology to reflect your own one-of-a-kind design.

These bespoke tiles offer exclusivity and glamour to a home. They give any area that they are used on extra personality and are sure to catch the eye of even the most discerning critic.

Mosaics are also a favourite when it comes to creativity in your home and with so many material, design and colour options, you can be as artistic as you like. Fashion wide or narrow, horizontal or vertical borders with colourful mosaics, and beautiful listelli. “Borders allow you to add texture to your walls and the creative possibilities are endless,” says Liza Watermeyer, Retail Display Coordinator at Tile Africa

Use bright-coloured glass mosaics as decorative splashbacks in your kitchen or bathroom. They are practical, have a non-porous surface and will last long with the correct maintenance. Other materials can include natural stone and metal.

Patterned tiles are also ideal to create focus areas and accents, especially behind the vanity, bath or in the shower. When used as a backdrop, unique tile layouts pull the eye towards a design feature such as a floating vanity or free-standing bath.

For outdoor areas, slate and sandstone cladding may be the best options to craft your feature wall as they’re made from natural stone, are highly durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions.

With an extensive selection of trendy and durable tiles, bathroom ware and fittings, you can be sure to find the right products for your home when you visit any Tile Africa retail outlet nationwide.
