[Houzz Ideabook] Accent Tile Design Ideas

Contemporary bathroom

Handmade Tile:

It can be expensive – that’s the bad news. Good news is that there are so many ways to use handmade tile as an accent alongside less expensive, machine-made field tile or stone. This is a great way for handmade tile to fit into nearly every budget.

For example, take a look at this gorgeous tile combo pictured to the right by San Francisco interior designerNiche Interiors.  The red handmade ceramic border, installed low on the wall and paired with natural stone & brass details is warm, fun and completely unexpected!

Below is a Houzz Ideabook showing even more examples how  to add color & interest with accent tile.

What do you think of the following design ideas?  Leave a comment with your favorite!
