3. They work as a frameWant some pattern on your walls, but not all over? Try teaming classic metro tiles with smaller areas of pattern, as in this scheme. The soft grey metros form a frame around two recessed shelves that have been tiled with an intricate design. The pattern would have been too busy all over the walls, but the metro tiles calm it down and help to showcase the beautiful design in the recesses.
Let your tiles twinkleLED, as already mentioned, is often associated with gleaming, contemporary designs, or in homes packed with high-tech tricks controllable from your phone. All that is possible in older homes, too, but LED strips are way simpler. They also look great with classic details, such as these Victorian-style blue and white tiles. Recessed shelves, or niches, just like the box shelves shown earlier, lend themselves well to a strip of light at the back. And, again, the function of the light here is simply to show off a decorative feature, rather than to provide task lighting, so ensure you build that in too.All fittings will need to have a suitable IP rating to be safe for bathroom use.
