Bring your out­door liv­ing room to life with a tiled fea­ture wall

Oren Sachs, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of WOMAG, has this ad­vice for cre­at­ing a fea­ture wall with pat­terned tiles

If you don’t want a com­pletely pat­terned wall, use a com­bi­na­tion of plain and pat­terned tiles. Work out the de­sign be­fore­hand with the tile shop and make sure the tiler un­der­stands the ef­fect you‘re af­ter.

If you have a tight bud­get, but still want the wall to have the wow factor, lay plain tiles in dif­fer­ent pat­terns such as her­ring­bone or run­ner bond. Or mix things up with hexag­o­nal tiles. This has im­pact, but it’s more sub­tle.

For an el­e­gant ef­fect, com­bine matt and pol­ished tiles in the same shades. The difference in fin­ish adds an in­ter­est­ing tex­ture.
