Buying Guide

If you want to reinforce the separation between two sets of tiles or your tiles and the wall, choose a decorative border tile in a color that creates a pleasant contrast against the rest of them. Try and do so by keeping your room’s palette consistent instead of introducing additional hues.

Alternatively, you can mark this difference more subtly by opting for some decorative border tiles in the same color but choosing a different design: in this case, it’ll be the grout lines or patterns on the tiles to stand out.

The size of the decorative border tile you choose will depend on your interior design project.

If you plan on achieving a subtle yet smart look, then small border tiles that are 1.5cm x 30cm will do the trick.

If you want your decorative border tiles to be the focal point in the room, then opt for something larger or in the range of 15, 20 or 30 cm tiles with varying widths.

Decorative border tiles are often used by homeowners and interior designers alike to make their tile designs stand out. They can delineate an area such as a foyer or eating area in the kitchen and add an abundance of style and detail to any space.

Decorative border tiles are effective in a few scenarios inside the home, such as joining hardwood and tile floors, by transitioning between the two materials to create a border.

Alternatively, if you've chosen a mosaic rug for your bottom floor, then you can use a matching set of border tiles on the wall to complement the design. Additionally, you may use border tiles to highlight a specific area, such as creating a tile border along your kitchen counters as well as a frame behind your cooker top.

Decorative border tiles are also useful in framing a space, such as creating a border around your fireplace or using it to square off the room, making a statement in an entryway, or adding some detail to the sunroom floor.
