Here at Unique Tiles, we deal with customer requests for picture tiles on a daily basis.
From the weird to the wonderful, we have come to understand the amount of care customers take when deciding what their home looks like. We also have learnt to appreciate the uniqueness and individuality of everyone we service, and there is nothing anymore that surprised us.
Since we opened back in 2011 we have dealt with hundreds of requests for picture tiles. Although they’re all individual designs, we have found a few factors with each customer that are similar. For example, we found that a lot of people need help with matching colour schemes and choosing the perfect size to make sure the image looks just right.
So we have created a short and simple guide to help you decide on your next picture tile design, hopefully we can inspire you too!
One factor which is usually left out of the conversation is shape. Picture tile designs don’t have to be strictly square or rectangular. You could go for a diamond or triangle design. Maybe you want your tiles to fit around existing furniture or cabinets, in which case the shape will be completely custom to you. When you have chosen where you want your picture tiles and you have an idea on the shape of the design, and you have chosen what kind of image you’d like; ask yourself, ‘how will this shape around my existing decor?’
Take for example, tiles around an oven in a kitchen. One large image wouldn’t make sense as half of it would be covered by your oven, and no one wants half an owl or half a forest, do they? In such cases, we’d recommend to go for a personalised collage of images to go around existing items. Simply take your idea of what theme you would like and work around all the keywords that fit the theme. Before you know, you’ll have a design that integrates perfectly into your home.
