If you want to adorn your kitchen, bathroom or living space with a stunning feature wall, splashback or floor, check out these creative features that use intricate tile laying patterns to achieve bold looks, without spending extra on feature tiles.Tiles Cape Town


Pair shiny white subway tiles with dark grout to instantly create a simple but timeless splashback. This look is as dynamic as your imagination— Pair with angular blacks, whites, concrete and pops of bright colour for a more modern, industrial look. For those who strive for a quirkier boutique or retro aesthetic, pair with rich woods, cool stone, warm metals, and vintage decor.


For a bolder design, you can’t go past the visual impact of a herringbone tile pattern. This tile pattern is created using subway tiles. Named for the shape of a herringbone skeleton, achieve this look by laying each tile at 90 degrees to the tile beside it.

Try this pattern in the bathroom behind the vanity for a stunning feature wall. Bear in mind that this pattern can be tricky to lay, so take it slow and map it out first. On the floors, a crosshatch design gives a bold impact and can be created by laying two tiles alongside each other vertically and then horizontally. This look is perfect for bathroom flooring and can be especially effective when doubled so that four tiles are laid alongside each other. This design is also quite simple to lay for those who like to DIY.

At TileSpace, we believe that no one should have to compromise the personality and boldness of their interior design scheme in the name of a restrictive budget. Make the striking splashback of your dreams a reality with these grouting options.
