Decorate your home with patchwork tiles
This is certainly not a crazy solution, but a very clever one. The unusual tiles bring energy and playfulness on the walls, on the work surfaces and on the floors
Do you like the patchwork style floors? You can also achieve this effect at home. To do this, you should mix patterns of different shapes and colors on the wall.
As a result, you will achieve a captivating result related to traditional Moroccan and Mediterranean arts.
Patterns of different shapes and colors on the wall
Yes, that’s right: this method allows you to use all of your favorite colors and patterns at the same time.
Where would you use such a combination? Perhaps on the back wall in the kitchen, on the floor in front of the entrance or on the worn table surface? Everyone will turn around to look at this piece of art!
Thanks to the mix of patterned Cuban tiles, this kitchen corner in Denvar is beautifully decorated. An artistic and cheerful collage has been attached to the back wall. It loosens the strict symmetry in the room wonderfully. The back wall has proven to be the perfect spot for this collage to be attached. This work of art looks beautiful there, but by no means obtrusive.

A small hint: Choosing the right colors for the tiles in your kitchen can be a very tedious task. The reason is, among other things, the excess of colors. The patchwork wall can contain many nuances at the same time and is therefore a good start for the colored design. Based on their effect, you can decide afterwards for the additional color shades in your kitchen.
The colors should match each other
A wonderful approach would be to select square tiles of the same size. The colors in these should match each other. You would achieve a strong and cheerful look and this will be wonderfully combined with the white background and the floor. Such decoration can greatly emphasize the effect of both modern furniture and economical equipment and create a dramatic swing.

Tip 2: Patterned tiles in traditional and not so traditional design solutions can be purchased as porcelain, terracotta and cement with wax painting. The design can be produced and painted by hand or applied by machine.

In this example we see a rather traditional patchwork style reminiscent of the French style with patterned and small porcelain tiles. If you choose tiles in the same colors, you will still be mixing up lots of color accents without using distracting and fancy shades of color.

Tip 3: The patterned tiles show different thicknesses. Look for tiles that are suitable for your use. If you ever need to replace them, you will surely need a tile of the same type afterwards. Are you putting together a patchwork plant for a completely new construction? Talk to your designer about whether the tiles on offer are standard or maybe a bit thicker or thinner.
The patterned tiles show different thicknesses
The ceramic and terracotta tiles are very thin. This can cause difficulties later when using the cabinets or other structural details.
The stairs are a perfect place to put the terracotta tiles. This is wonderfully illustrated by the example here. The patterned tiles convey a strong message. They also have a different impact depending on the perspective. The patchwork also creates a reference to the interior.

Tip 4: Certainly you should first understand the exact context of each tile. So don’t fall in love with floor tiles before you are sure they were made for exactly that purpose. Tiles that are too fine can break very easily on the floor.
In the picture above, a cafe in Jerusalem is depicted with tiles in pastel colors. These show different nuances, sizes and patterns. Their look is interesting, but doesn’t drive you crazy. Incidentally, as a viewer, one cannot see any underlying order or rule with regard to the combination.
This is an arbitrary art! Modern and beautiful, right??
Do you want to find out how many tiles of the different colors, sizes and patterns you will be using before you go shopping? Then first do a graphic preparation on the PC. Carefully arrange your mosaic from favorite tiles in advance and provide them to the master. In this way, the perfect results are assured and you will avoid unwanted misunderstandings.

A colorful patchwork like the one in this picture on the left is simply something that will brighten up and enliven any kind of atmosphere. Besides, it will attract people’s attention and they will never forget this sight. This floor clearly overwhelms the space. That would be something for me too, but it would probably work best in a small bathroom. You could also work in narrow hallways or kitchens.
Tip 5: Are you wondering how many patterns and colors you should use to create a successful patchwork art? There is no clear answer to that. It depends on the effect you want to achieve. From experience I can only say this: The combinations that are most impressive in my opinion contain 10 or almost ten elements. This is how you can achieve a really arbitrary appearance. This creates a visual space between the different patterns and colors.
Another place to experiment with different tiles is in the outdoor areas. The built-in kitchen island in this Brazilian courtyard is easy to keep clean. This is also one of the greatest advantages of tiles.
The picture on the left shows the result of another artistic arbitrariness in the bathroom. Check out the uniquely eclectic mix of bright colors in this Manhattan apartment! It looks nice, doesn’t it?
You like the patchwork works, but are afraid of covering too wide an area with them? Then use this method to design a smaller area with tiles of the same type. That is a wonderful work of art within that beautiful kitchen, or?

Even a strip of patchwork tiles as a border or decorative frame would be super modern and chic. Take a look at the example!
In the picture above we see a fabulous combination of shapes and colors. The tiles look very good in this square shape, but you should be aware of the possibly overwhelming effect in larger areas before using them.
Do you want to freshen up a room or make it very colorful right from the start? Will the overwhelming effect of the patchwork tiles not bother you or your guests on larger areas? Do you want to be bold and design a room entirely with patchwork tiles? Then he becomes popular with some people and hated by others. You understand that, don’t you?
Or maybe you have a small room whose borders you just want to decorate? The patchwork tiles have a wide range of uses!
