Let’s look at some specific options you can consider to freshen up your space. Trends expert Nick Drew has found the textured tile trend is up in Google searches by 5700%. So clearly, many of us are looking at this design trend!
Black textured tiles in the bathroom or kitchen
This is bold yet neutral. Black textured tiles are a way to add more depth and sophistication to a living space, whilst keeping it chic and elegant. This style works particularly well in a bathroom or kitchen rather than in the living room space.
The dramatic look can work in with light decor because it is only used on a wall or backsplash. To keep it ultra low cost, find textured peel and stick at Dollar Tree and hand or spray paint it black before attaching to your wall.
Cottage decor trend with faux wood textured tile
Wood will always be a classic look. Because of the natural textures of different types of wood and the neutral colors are a great way to add a more rustic charm and appeal to your home.
Wood-look tiles are particularly effective for achieving this look. To bring more warmth and a homey feel of the cottage decor trend, try wood look wall paper or peel and stick tile as an accent wall or back splash.
Use textured tile to make a visually stunning feature wall
A feature wall vs. an accent wall I like to think of as a very specific focused area. Accent part of a wall to represent a different area which works great in small spaces. Divide the dining area from the living area with a feature wall.
You can define an entry way with a feature wall.
4-6 feet behind a mounted television can be a feature wall. Using textured tiles instead of the expected paint or wall paper will add more depth and visual interest.
Here, hammered metal looking textured peel and stick tiles give this feature wall with a fireplace a special visual focus and adds warmth to a simple white room.
This is a great way to ease away from the ultra modern minimal trend and create a more welcoming space.
Dollar tree has hammered look copper and brushed nickel textured tiles.
Currently Dollar Tree offers this look in teal, copper an brushed nickel so you can make a textured tile feature wall for just a few dollars depending on the height and width of the space you’re making a feature.
This textured tile is also from Dollar Tree and would work great painted black for a black accent textured tile wall, white washed to compliment a cottage look or brushed over with metallic paint to customize with your accent color of choice.
It’s also beautiful as is with a nod to Greek tile if you like a Meditteranean look in your kitchen.
