Chic-yet-Cozy Fireplace Tile Ideas and Inspiration

It’s a simple fact: One of the best parts about the cold weather is cozying up next to the fireplace. But a fireplace is more than just a gathering spot; it’s also the primary focal point in any given room. It has the power to tie a room together, creating a cohesive look and feel of a space. 

If you’re building a brand new fireplace or simply looking to makeover your current one, chances are you’ve considered adding tile to your fireplace. (And yes, you can totally tile over a brick fireplace!) Adding tile around your fireplace creates a look that’s sophisticated and stylish. Playing with different tile shapes and colors also allows your personality to shine through. Here are four fireplace tile ideas to get you going!

1. Moroccan Fish Scale Mosaic Fireplace

Mix fire and water by adding our Moroccan Fish Scale tile to your fireplace. While Moroccan fish scale tiles date as far back as the 8th century, they add a modern touch to a standard patterned fireplace. Mix and match different colors with a custom palette, like this Luxury Lake Home, or go totally monochromatic.

2. Minimalist Craftsman Style Fireplace

Looking for more minimalist fireplace tile? When tiling this craftsman-style home, we used a high-variation glaze to highlight the hand-painted texture. We adore tiling craftsman homes to honor of the handmade process behind our tile. It's the perfect tile choice that offers a vintage yet polished feel to honor your home's traditional roots.

3. Tiled Wood Burning Stove

What’s more charming than a wood burning stove? Though smaller in size, adding tile to the fireplace surround makes the stove stand out in the room. The hand-glazed tile in an antique color complements the traditional feel of the stove. Also notice the clean transition from adding Bullnose pieces around the edging for a little extra polish.

4. Geometric Fireplace

Go brilliantly bright & cold with an exciting shape and mixture of colors. With this project, we used our Triangle shape tile to create a geometric design pattern. Choose as many or as little colors as your heart (or hearth) desires from our glaze palette to make your fireplace uniquely yours. Give yourself an excuse to relax around the fireplace this holiday season by adding handmade tile!
