A to Z of Tiling - J is for jewelled

Friday 4 December 2015, Written by Laura Tompkins Tags: A to Z

A statement tile can be the perfect finish to your kitchen or bathroom. Simple fixtures and fittings compliment sparkling jewelled tiles wonderfully creating a beautiful contrast. But when it comes to creating an all-out bejewelled look in your home, it pays to take note of the old adage ‘more is more’! Jewelled tiles and accessories create a sense of glamour, luxury and opulence and can make for a show stopping interior.

Small Details

choosing a jewelled tile doesn't mean you have to go overboard; small detailing with decorative tiles is an elegant way of adding some interest to your kitchen or bathroom. Try Agra, a glistening jewelled mosaic with flecks of glitter, metallic and frosted glass - not for the faint hearted but when teamed with a plain large format white tile like Zelo Slimline from Tileworks it can create a delicate jewelled effect. Mosaics are great for accents and with their flashes of colour and texture they naturally have a bejewelled feel.

All out Glamour

If you are feeling brave and want to create a dramatic look then creating a contrast of different colours and textures is a sure-fire way of achieving this. Opt for an inky dark glittering wall buy using Caeli or Black Crushed Pearl, these large format glass tiles create a whole wall of shimmering wonder and go hand in hand with pops of colour like Eastern Light or Stellar to create a real statement look.  

Choosing products that feature decorative effects or Mosaics are a great way of adding glamour to any space. Whether it's pearlescent, textured, glittered or reflective, the effect will be stunning, whether it's on a small or large scale.
