Inspiration: Tile-Lovin Interiors

There is an undeniable trend for tiles in the world of interiors today.

At KLD we are slightly addicted to tiling for their incredible ability to transform a space with pattern and colour.

Cafes, restaurants and hotels are using tiles in clever and creative ways in the design of their spaces and improvement of the overall customer experience.

Here are some gorgeous spaces using tiling in innovative and interesting ways.


We love the use of floor tiles in different shapes and styles to differentiate the kitchen space in an open plan restaurant.


Another interesting way to use tiles is to play around with conventional ideas, we love how here a simple mosaic tile  is contrasted with a tile more usually associated with roofs.


Don’t be afraid to use different materials and shapes in commercial spaces.  The mixture of manila rope and a strong patterned tile create a laid back and fun feeling with the bar as the center piece.


Using a a faded patterned tile in a complementary colour to the concrete walls here is a clever way to soften a stark industrial design.


We love the use of a wooden tile in a herringbone pattern on the walls, again a style more usually associated with flooring,  as an innovative way of adding warmth and variety to the space.


As always we love the use of a prominent block of a geometric pattern to enhance a space!!


For smaller spaces, coloured and reflective tiles can bounce light to create the feeling of space and light.


We love the idea of making use of the tiling in a practical way by writing directly on the wall.


You cannot go wrong with the use subway tiles, a tile that has been around since 1904, which are always a classic for a clean and simplistic look that never goes out of style.


We are in love with the idea of using different sizes and patterns in fun and playful colours to reflect the personality of a given commercial space.


Or changing it up with a beautiful 3D leather tile for adding texture…


We love the idea of the wooden floor tiles being continued on to the walls of this cafe for a clean slate to enhance the focal point of the space of the counter which immediately catches the eye.


And finally sometimes more is more…if you are feeling particularly brave try tiling an entire room, ceiling and all!!


The colour Copper has been used in design for many years.

Its soft texture and colour are very popular among designers and architects that use this material in many different innovative ways. Not only material, but there is also a variety of metallic paints available on the market such as Hammerite paints that can be applied on metallic or wooden finishes.

It is commonly used in kitchen spaces not only as kitchen utensils or vintage pots, but more and more on larger areas like kitchen back-splashes and kitchen worktops. What became very popular recently were solid brass islands that were very eye-catching. A copper island could add a very stylish twist to a modern sleek kitchen space. If you are a copper enthusiast but prefer tones in smaller amounts, accessories are the way to go.

We love a combination of marble with a metallic shade like brass or copper. We have spotted this beautiful and affordable Miner wall clock made of slate and copper.  It’s simply stunning.

Another simple but beautiful furniture piece that we used is Swedese coffee & side table.

Lighting is an important element of any interior space that can not be overlooked. Copper pendants or over sized floor lamps are not only stylish and luxurious additions to your room but also reflect additional light around, creating an illusion of a brighter space.

Another way how to bring the shade into an interior is via kitchen or bathroom taps. Copper armchair or sofa details are certainly stylish and luxurious too.
