It can be fun to make a bold statement here and there in your home, even if you don’t consider your style to be particularly bold. One of the best places to be a little adventurous is in your tile work. This can be on the floor, a backsplash, or even a wall, usually in the kitchen or bathroom. A well-placed graphic pattern in the tile can liven up an otherwise simple design in a space. You can incorporate color, pattern and texture in a creative way to make a statement that is unique to that space.
