Turn tiling on its head

Discover new ways to arrange your wall tiles to create on-trend patterns and eye-catching effects

Tiles can completely transform your kitchen or bathroom and even make a great alternative to paint or wallpaper in other rooms of the house. It’s not just about the tiles you choose though – this year it’s all about getting creative with how you lay your tiles to create head-turning patterns and effects. We’ve picked out our favourite trends to provide some inspiration for your next project.


This pattern is becoming more and more popular and it’s clear to see why. With just some simple brick-shaped tiles you can create this fashion-forward pattern that will turn any wall from drab to fab. Match your grout to your tiles if you’re after a subtle effect, or go bold and use a contrasting grout to really show off the intricate design.

Artisau™ gloss pink tile, £79.20 per sq m, Topps Tiles

This pale pink tile really pops when used with a cool grey grout. The small size of the tiles would also make this a great alternative to statement wallpaper on your chimney breast

Equipe Country tile, £35.38 per sq m,

Buy tiles in three or four different colours and lay them in horizontal blocks of colour to create a chevron pattern. This ombré effect is subtle and striking at the same time

Carnival tile in Oro, £79.20 per sq m, Fired Earth

About Your Home Magazine

Now that spring is well underway, for many of us our thoughts are turning to blowing away the winter cobwebs and freshening up our homes for the warmer, sunnier months ahead. If your vacuum cleaner has seen better days and you’re thinking of investing in a new one, take a look at our buyers’ guide on page 50 to discover which model is right for you. This is also a great time of year to make the most of the long bank holiday weekends that abound over the next few weeks to give your home a fresh new look with a coat of paint. In this issue we take a look at the two key colours for this year (both of which are very calming and easy to live with) and show you just how easy it is to use them in your own home, no matter what your style (p.36). While those of you who have a penchant for rustic interiors will love this month’s Trend Alert which looks at using fresh spring greens to give your home a contemporary take on country living (p.20). Spring is often the time when thoughts turn to getting your home ready for putting on the market or making major home improvements to your property, so in this issue we take a look at which are the best projects to increase the value of your home, from adding an en suite to converting the loft. Turn to page 106 to find out our top 10 value adding projects. Finally, don’t forget to take a look at our food pages this month (p.100), where you’ll find some clever recipes to give your chicken dinners a scrummy new twist!
