  • From a stylish kitchen splashback to a statement feature wall, discover 5 ways to make an impact with standout tiles

    1. Off the wall

    If the idea of painstakingly lining up hundreds of tiles leaves you cold, take a shortcut with a marble-effect wallpaper panel, like this sleek design from DigitexHOME. Simply measure up at home, then buy the panels to fit! Other effects include the industrial-style Crumbled Plaster, and a Moroccan-inspired Tangier.

    2. All the glitters

    Add a luxe look with a metallic splashback, like these striking copper leaf glass tiles from Original Style. Team with pared-back white walls and wooden furniture to let the tiles shine, or co-ordinate them with a matching copper pendant and accessories for extra glamour.

    3. Bespoke design

    Create a feature wall that’s completely bespoke with a set that you can mix and match, like the Ruvido tiles from Walls and Floors. Choose from five designs, featuring a stone, wood and slate effect, as well as patterned and illustrated options, then build and arrange them to create your ideal design.
