Buying Guide

There are several places where you can put an accent tile on a kitchen backsplash. If you want to use this tile to create a diverting focal point in your kitchen, place it in the center, above the stove. Try using more than one accent tile if you’re going to adopt this method: a group of carefully arranged tile accent pieces with a bold and stylish pattern will look a lot chicer than a single tile.

On the other hand, if you’re using accent tiles with a longer and more rectangular shape, place these around the edges of your kitchen backsplash. You can arrange them so that they look like they’re neatly bordering the main backsplash area.

If your accent tiles are made from a different material than the rest of the backsplash, try randomly mixing the accent options among the standard tiles to create a pattern with plenty of contrasting textures and plenty of visual interest.

Tile accent pieces customize your shower and make it unique. There are no hard and fast rules about where to position them, but there are some heights that make your shower look the most appealing. The most flattering way to incorporate accent tiles in your shower is to position them at eye level, about ¾ of the way up the shower wall. This helps give the shower the illusion of additional height.

If you want a minimal way to add some style to your shower, consider using accent tiles at baseboard height, almost like trim in your house. You can also reverse this idea and put accent tiles on the top row of the shower tiles, which gives your shower a finished look but might make the height feel lower by drawing the eye downward.

A waist-level height is an excellent choice for shower accent tiles, especially if your bathroom already has wainscoting. Just be sure to consider your ceiling height when determining how high you want waist height to be. If your bathroom has grand ceilings and you position the accent tile at a low mid-height, it can look awkward.

Tile accent pieces can be installed on the floor. You can use them to create borders to make plain tile flooring look decorative. You can place ornate tiles with bold colors around your existing flooring to create a unique floor design. Or, if you’re into more understated looks, you can choose tile accent pieces in either one or two shades darker than the rest of your current tiling.

You can position your tile accent pieces on the edge of smaller tiles to achieve these timeless looks. Or use account tiles on a contrasting color to your floor tiles to create a pattern. For example, you could use black diamond-shaped accent tiles on a white tiled floor to create the illusion of flowers. You could go beyond a simple repeating pattern and craft a faux rug from accent tiles.

When adding tile accent pieces to your floor, ensure you don’t go overboard with too many patterns and different colors. Choose your favorite design or color and stick with it, as this will create a cohesive, aesthetically pleasing interior. If you use too many patterns and colors on one floor, they will compete with each other and appear overwhelming.
