Brick Tile: Versatile Design

Posted by Daltile Team on Jun 29, 2016 10:30:00 AM

Exposed brick walls are becoming a hot design trend, but the same look and feel can be achieved with brick tile. These tiles can add to either a rustic, industrial space, a sophisticated, effortless warehouse design, or even an old-world cottage vibe. They supply texture, warmth, and personality regardless of the style of the room. Here are some stunning ideas for inspiration.

Use It as a Blacksplash

For a backsplash in an industrial-style kitchen, go with Gunmetal Field Wall Brick-Joint mosaic tile from the Urban Metals collection. This tile looks stunning when used alone or with any of the liners or borders within the collection. The entire line injects just the right amount of edgy industrial style to a kitchen. When choosing a countertop to pair with your backsplash, go with either light or dark gray slate, dark black or green granite, or a porcelain tile that looks like limestone, such as the Ever line.

If you love the look of a Gunmetal Field Wall Brick-Joint tile backsplash, but are going for more of a traditional style, mix it with a natural stone tile, such as a Baja Cream Brick-Joint mosaic tile. You can use the stone as a border, or you can mix the two in a diamond pattern. To finish your design, consider going with a granite countertop, such as Rum Raisin or Pacific Sand from the One Quartz Surfaces line.

Create an Accent Wall

Whether your style is elegant, traditional, or contemporary, your space can probably benefit from an accent wall. If you're going for a less rustic look, consider creating an accent wall with Brickwork. This new tile comes in six neutral colors with high variation that makes for a beautiful accent wall.

Mix and Match Multiple Brick-Shaped Tiles

When using brick-shaped tile, don't be afraid to mix and match various materials and tile shapes. For example, consider using Brickwork brick tile with any cement-look tile to create a sophisticated industrial design. You could also mix metallic tile for a rustic country style.
