Ideas For Layering Tiles
Layering tiles is one of the many ways to install new files onto your floors, backsplashes, or countertops. There are some creative ways to do this, but there is something to keep in mind before you start on this project.
Layering your tiles means to put new tiles over your already existing ones. This can look nice, but it can also be somewhat difficult to install, so make sure you do your research and know what you’re doing before you begin on such a massive project. It might also be a good idea to talk to a professional before you start this project.
With that in mind, there are still some very creative ways to layer your tiles so that they look great in your home:
Make Them Float
What do you do if you have an ugly backsplash in your kitchen that’s completely outdated? You can layer some tiles over it and give it a brand new look. This blogger took tiles she had bought from the clearance isle in the store (they were only 2 cents a piece), and took them home. She layered these tiles over her old backsplash, layering them in a funky way that gave the appearance that some of them were floating. Three years after the project, she still loved the way they looked.
Give It A Modern Color
If you’re sick of the white tile, or the beige tile around your furniture or on your walls, you can give the color a swap by layering new tiles on. Gray is a great color to give your room a much more modern look, while keeping the space looking nice and clean. Around the fireplace may be a perfect area to do this. It would draw the eyes to that space in the room, and make it stand out.
Update Your Bathtub
If your bathroom needs a little sprucing up, you can layer tile onto your tub. This will make the bathroom look finished even more than it already is, and give your bathroom a nice, relaxing atmosphere. Rather than the tub looking so white and drab, you can give it a modern look with glass tile, or even give it a more elegant look with stone tile instead. Whatever you decide to do, it will make your bathroom look incredible.
