THE GREEN ROOM: TELLING TILES
patio to the next level with
a tiled feature wall
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.
