How To Incorporate Tiles Into Your Fireplace

Adding tiles to the surround of a fireplace can add another layer to the aesthetic of the piece. Here's how to get the perfect look for your home.

Fireplaces make a wonderful focal point for a living room, and in the winter they make a space feel incredibly cosy and of course provide warmth.

One of the marvellous things about a fireplace is that you can decorate it in a range of ways to make it a standout feature. According to House Beautiful, one of the best ways to do this is to tile the fireplace surround.

When you’re using tiles, you have such a range of options that you’re bound to find something that will fit in with your sense of interior style.

The magazine even suggested some of the top tiled looks you could pick to go with your fireplaces in Cannock.

If you have a light space and want to add a sense of drama, you could opt for a black tiled fireplace. Keep it simple and the clean lines of white wall to black tiles will look stunning.

For something a little more delicate, consider using sparkly mosaic tiles around the hearth. The colours will really come to life when the fire’s lit and reflecting off their surfaces.    

Terracotta tiles, meanwhile, are classic and rustic, really adding to a homey feel if that’s the ambience you’re looking for in your space.

Another option is to choose patterned tiles and accent the rest of your space with similar colours to bring the whole room together. Blues and whites can be an especially good choice if you’re looking for something striking but soothing.

Earlier this year, designer Suzanne Tucker told Forbes that being creative with your fireplace is a great way to inject some personal style into a space. It can be as simple as choosing a certain mirror or piece of art to go over the mantlepiece, or thinking about what objects you display there, she explained.
