4 ways to use black and white tiles

When it comes to black and white tiles, it’s just not as black and white as you first might think. See what we did there?

It’s the oldest of all the colour combinations and more often than not, it’s the most stylish and sophisticated way to dress up your home. The duo also lends itself nicely to both modern and traditional; moody and clean; striking and simple… it can be whatever you want it to be really. 

So how do you tackle a monochrome makeover? Here’s some of our favourites.

Simply square

It may be simple, but it’s a true classic! As a pattern it’s been around as long as the Romans and to this day, it’s a timeless look that works great on any bathroom and kitchen floor. 

Keep the whole room monochrome or inject a little bit of colour on the walls, this square duo is everything you want it to be. No wonder it’s stuck around for so long… 

Patterned Prints

Gorgeous and traditional, the black and white patterned tile is a firm favourite for many households. Taking notes from Victorian monochrome motifs, they command attention in a “look at me, I’m so pretty” kind of way. 

Traditional tiles like the Devonstone have an air of history about them too making everyone question if they’re originals, and that’s the end goal, right?

Gusty Geo

Fancy yourself as a bit of a modernista? Leave the traditional behind and go geometric. The ultimate dramatic look, they make a bold statement about you and your interior choices.

The Henry tile fits the bill perfectly when it comes to striking geo patterns, and although a spot of grey has creeped into the design, it’s still a winner for black and whites tiles in our eyes. 

Renewed Retro

For those looking for a halfway point between traditional and modern, our brand new Feature Floor Retro tile is the one for you. Bold and geometric, yet vintage and patterned, it’s got a little bit of everything; perfect for changing up the rest of your interior whenever you like. 

It’s great for bathrooms and hallway floors, plus, there’s a little-known secret that it’s great for walls too. And if you like to take the occasional shoefie, we can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
