Living Area Tiles

Living Area Tiles Ideas from Walls and Floors

When it comes to entertaining guests, there are two social hubs in the home. The first is the kitchen, where we sit at the breakfast bar and chat over a cup of coffee. The second is the living room, where we can lounge with our guests, drink wine, and enjoy a Chinese takeaway at the end of a stressful week. Whilst the kitchen needs to be functional in terms of cooking and eating, the living room needs to be functional in a very different way – it needs to be comfortable and welcoming. A great way to help your guests feel relaxed in your living room is to have a stylish décor scheme that puts them completely at ease. To achieve this, put our selection of living area tiles to good use… 

Create a natural base 

It’s no secret that creating a naturalistic look for our living spaces is a contemporary design trend. By inviting the outdoors in and welcoming wood and stone into our home we naturally feel closer to nature and more at ease. So when it comes to choosing flooring for your living room, the outdoor look is a great option to consider. However, natural woods fade and splinter, and require constant sanding and waxing. Likewise, natural stone floors demand treatment and regular maintenance. For a less demanding environment wood effect and stone effect living area tiles are a superb choice. Made from durable porcelain, they don’t mark and scratch as readily as their natural counterparts. These beautiful tiles are typically created using the latest inkjet technology, which provides a perfect likeness of natural stone or wood! 

Reinvent the fireplace with living area tiles 

If you’re got an old, drab fireplace in your living room, why not transform it to become the focal point of the room, to ensure it catches the eye of all your guests? This can be as simple as adding a new surround. Choose colourful metro tiles that express your personality, or alternatively, a sparkling iridescent mosaic. If you want to go the whole hog, update the hearth, too, using some living area tiles! For a striking period look, add some Victorian clay Gosford Tiles, and create a bit of Downton Abbey charm in your living room. 

Add a statement floor 

If you don’t have a fireplace but you want to create a focal point in your living area (which is important if you want to make the room look fresh and interesting), then add a statement floor. This is basically just an eye-catching, characterful, decorative surface that helps to inject personality into a room. It doesn’t need to take up the entire floor space; it can simply just be a section, surrounded by plainer, stone or wood effect, tiles. For an especially captivating statement floor, opt for a patterned patchwork Moroccan tile design. There are plenty to choose from in our selection of living area tiles.
