Dress your home with wall cladding
Tips | Posted on August 21, 2020
The concept of a feature wall is a time honoured one, as it is a simple way to dress an existing focal point for added drama and effect. These natural features include walls with fireplaces, entrance halls, kitchen and bathroom splashbacks. Making use of a decorative wall tile, such as cladding, to highlight those areas to which the eye is naturally drawn, adds to the design of your space, in a very personal way. We look at 4 ways to dress your home with wall cladding.
Using a stone-look tile to clad a feature wall is perhaps the most customary approach, particularly when used around a fireplace or mantlepiece. Stone speaks to the old-world charm of a Tuscan villa, or rural homestead. It is calming and reassuring.
Keeping with the warmth of tradition, a wood-look pattern brings a warm rustic appeal reminiscent of a cosy farmhouse, or renovated barn. Add a modern twist to the look by looking for patterns which combine different shades of wood to add interest and colour to the space.

Embrace trend-forward combinations of wood and stone patterns where the contrasting colours and textures breathe new life into well-worn designs. This trend brings all the comfort of the familiar together in a contemporary interpretation, perfect for a stylish family home.
Geometric patterns represent a growing trend in design. With a nod to encaustic designs, they are a wonderful way to bring colour into a space, pulling the other elements in the room together. Patterned tiles are an excellent choice for bathrooms and kitchens as a colourful counterpoint to the white bathroomware or kitchen cabinetry.
