Border Tiles will really set the standard for wall tile areas and they will compliment and reinforce your wall tile design whether you have a contemporary, traditional or modern setting. Knowing how to use border tiles is really important and will need to stay consistent with you wall tiles design.

A modern bathroom design will have clean lines, pure colours and minimalistic design; any border tiles should stay consistent to this design. If darker coloured wall tiles are used such as black and white which will create a real modern style, any border tiles used can incorporate the colours from your wall tiles using black and white smaller squares as a border strip. This creates a real modern twist and stays consistent to the modern design of the bathroom.

Many home owners use a uniformed border tile throughout their wall tiles design by using the border tiles in the shower areas and flowing through into the rest of the bathroom design.

Traditional settings have a wide scope for ideas and design styles; a traditional interior incorporates warm natural colours as well as staying true to new and innovative elegance and design. Wall tiles can be any style you want using natural beiges and crèmes and border tiles can be a reflection of the natural surroundings. Mosaic border tiles can be used in natural stone materials to compliment the rest of the wall tile design. Marble mosaic tiles and slate borders make excellent additions for the traditional design style.

The contemporary design style in bathrooms and kitchens is very much about the current design and style. There are many new and innovative wall tile designs that reflect beautifully a contemporary design style. The colours and styles you choose for your wall tiles largely depends on your personal preferences and home owners should take the time to look at the different options available. Glass tiles are very popular at the moment and come in many new design styles; glass tiles will add both a contemporary and modern feel and they are great additions for smaller and darker spaces.

Glass mosaic tiles work really well as border tiles and colours can be picked out of the wall tile design and incorporated in the glass border tiles. Glass tiles come in many colours as well as many different sizes and shapes which allow the home owner to experiment and create an individual style.

Home owners are spending more time on bathroom design and want to create a place of peace and calm, using innovative and creative wall tile design can help home owners get the best from their bathroom design.
