As ap­pre­ci­a­tion of graf­fiti grows, and de­sign­ers get cre­ative about how they in­cor­po­rate it in the home, neg­a­tive feel­ings about the art form are fad­ing, Heide Scherer says.

Scherer has im­por­tant ad­vice about how best to use graf­fiti tiles, in do­mes­tic or com­mer­cial set­tings. “Streetart and graf­fiti tiles can be very pow­er­ful. Styling around min­i­mal colour is most ef­fec­tive – sim­ple with a hint of in­dus­trial,” she says.

De­signed as a fea­ture piece in mod­ern open-plan homes, the tiles are of­ten in­stalled as a kitchen splash­back, a fea­ture in the bath­room or games room or to brighten up other wet ar­eas.

“The va­ri­ety of ways th­ese tiles can be used are only lim­ited by imag­i­na­tion. Keep in mind what suits your style and your cur­rent home decor. For some, in-your-face graf­fiti can just be too much.’’
