Fireplace tile ideas for your home

With temperatures dropping and a chill in the air, we’re finding ourselves dreaming of cosying up to a nice warm fire.

As striking as they are functional, tiles are the perfect option for around the fireplace. Firstly, and most importantly they are fire resistant! Tiles get fired at more than 1200 degrees and are not a flammable material. This means you can choose any porcelain or ceramic tile to reflect your personality and style. Tile Space has thousands of different designs and each look will give a feel to your home. For a rustic feel, choose wood-look or stone-look tile or for a more contemporary and premium feel opt for marble-look.

Our Azuma Grey 600x1200 is inspired by industrial Japanese design for a sophisticated yet understated look.

Using just one large tile reduces grout lines and creates a dramatic, modern look. Generally, large format sizes will make a space feel larger and grander. The Metaline Iron tile replicates the look of Iron for a moody/industrial look.

How stunning is this fireplace using Marvel Statuario Cube. This tile takes marble look to a whole new level, offering a bold and geometric look. Taking the tile from the floor to the ceiling gives the illusion that the space is larger, whilst also acting as a room divider between lounge and kitchen.
