Are you a lover of red? It’s the colour of fire and passion, so it’s not for the faint hearted! On a colour wheel, the red section represents warmer tones. Why? Because they remind us visually of fire, or of a sunset. Therefore, if you’re looking to put together a cosy colour scheme in an interior area, reds are a great option. We’ve put together some stylish red accessories and tiling options to invite into your home…
Stylish red and pink tiles…
The first step in introducing a luscious red scheme into your interiors? Getting the base just right! Add red tiles to your wall and floor spaces. Here’s a selection of our favourite red tiles.
First up, our striking Aspect Hexagon Tiles, in red! Hexagons are a prominent shape when it comes to interior design and styling. So why not invite some six-sided style into your home this season?
Equally as ideal for creating a kitchen splashback are these Red Brick Mosaic Tiles. Made from glass, they have a shimmering gloss finish that bounces light around the room. They come in a popular brick-bond layout, and look like mini metro tiles!
If you’re looking for something a little more out of the ordinary, which is guaranteed to catch the eye of your guests as they step into your bathroom or kitchen, then how about these Red Mix Tiles? They have a glistening iridescent finish, with hints of red and pink! The colours change as you move around the room.
If you’re a great lover of the Moroccan Arabesque trend that’s taking the world of interior design by storm, then you will adore these Patchwork Mosaic Tiles. They consist of a patchwork of different textured designs, all in a soft pink / purple tone. Ideal for creating a splashback behind a kitchen sink, or for piecing together a room-stealing feature wall in a bathroom, bedroom or living room.
Our range of Marvel Tiles is the go-to collection for solid blocks of colour. Made from ceramic, with a mix of matt and gloss finishes, the range offers a wide variety of tones and hues; such as the Fiery Red Gloss Tiles shown above! Ideal for injecting some passion into your bathroom or kitchen wall spaces.
Texture is a key element when it comes to choosing coverings for your walls and floors. A plain, smooth space that lacks texture looks completely void, charmless and lifeless. Our Astir Tiles have a creased, riven, textured design and, as luck would have it, there’s a gorgeous red option!
Another charming glass brick mosaic in a brick-bond design, these Violet Mix Tiles contain an eye-catching and captivating cocktail of red, purple and peachy hues. Again, they allow you to create the look of mini metro tiles!
Remember what I said about texture being important in an interior decor scheme? Well, for an interesting approach to tiling a wall space in your home this season, try these simply stunning Splash Mosaic Tiles. I think you can guess where they got their name – they look like the lapping ripples of water!
Once featured on Channel 4′s Grand Designs, our Rhian Tiles offer a sleek and modernistic alternative to the traditional metro brick tile. A bold red in colour with a reflective gloss finish, they have an elongated design, and look fantastic in a linear or brick-bond design. Alternatively, for a trendy twist, try applying a herringbone pattern.
Sometimes, when it comes to tiling a kitchen or bathroom wall space, the traditional look is best! Metro tiles, with their brick shape and bevelled edge, offer a timeless finish in any part of the house! These Covent Garden Pink Metro Tiles have a charming light rose hue.
If you’re bored of looking at blistering stone effect lino or plain wooden floorboards, and you want a floor space with a little more zest, try our characterful Quartz Tiles. They consist of sparkling granite trapped in coloured resin, with mirror flecks that glisten and glitter under the light!
If you keep up to date with the latest decor and fashion trends, you might have heard of ‘Pantone’s Colour of the Year’. Basically, Pantone is the world’s leading authority on colour. Every year, it chooses the ‘colour of the year’ and thousands of interior designers and stylists set their palettes by it. This year, it was ‘Rose Quartz’ – and a mix of two colours; a light baby blue and a pale pink. Our Shell Pink Mosaic Tiles, shown above, perfectly suit this two-toned scheme.
Create a traditional farmhouse floor in your home with some rustic red quarry tiles! Perfect for injecting some country charm into a bathroom, kitchen or hallway floor space.
Remember our soft pink / lilac patchwork mosaic tiles from earlier on? Meet their brother, from the same range! In a richer red colour, these Rojo Patchwork Mosaic Tiles share the same exciting mix of textured patterns and designs.
Here’s another charming design from our selection of metro tiles! These Liverpool Street Red Metro Tiles will add colour to any kitchen splashback!
Personally, I think tiles make for a far more interesting splashback in a kitchen. However, if you prefer a cleaner, plainer look, try this Red Glass Kitchen Splashback.
Here’s another interesting and captivating mosaic tile, from the Astro Mosaic Tiles collection. It consists of a mix of quartz, glass and metal, with smooth and textured surfaces; guaranteed to bring any wall space to life.
