5 Maximalist Ways to Make a Statement with Tile

Layering patterns, bright colors, and bold gestures are the essence of Maximalist design. This artfully decorated interior design style has a ‘more is more’ philosophy and is full of personality. Handmade tile is a unique and charismatic way to add this high energy style into any home or business. Continue reading to see 5 ways you can make a Maximalist statement with tile!

1. Dramatic Colors

Dramatic and bright colors are an important factor in Maximalism. Here at Mercury Mosaics, we have a variety of glaze colors on our color palette that would be a perfect fit for this style! From bright pinks and teals to moody blues like this gorgeous shower, the options are endless to create your perfect Maximalist tile design.

2. Floor to Ceiling Tile

More is more, and this bathroom proves it! Floor to ceiling tile installations are one of our favorite ways to make a big and beautiful statement room. If you love tile as much as we do, then this Maximalist tile concept is the one for you. This DeRusha bathroom proves how elegant this tile concept can be!

3. Bold Patterns

Another way to take your home and turn it into a Maximalist wonderland is by using bold patterns. This could be using tile with a repetitive pattern and bold color, using a fun wallpaper with layered patterns in it, or both. Pair our herringbone pattern subway tile with a bold green and you can have a Maximalist tile kitchen like this!

4. Mix and Match Shapes

Mixing tile shapes together is a simple way to create a unique and custom design. Our Geo-Hex tile is one of our most popular signature patterns, that combines our Large Hexagon and Medium Diamond. These two tile shapes are a match made in heaven that fit perfectly together to create a beautiful motif. Go bold with an assorted color arrangement or create a stunning neutral monochromatic look like this one at Brow Chic
