6 Ways to Show Small Tiles That Make a Big Statement
In the world of interior design, it's often the small details that leave a lasting impression. One such detail that is gaining popularity is the use of small tiles that make a big statement! These petite pieces can transform a space, adding character, charm, and a touch of uniqueness. Let's explore some inspiring examples of how these small tiles are making a big impact in home design from small bathroom tiles to small kitchen tiles.

1. Cozy Home Bar with Small Herringbone Tiles

Picture coming home to a cozy home bar with warm glaze colors in a 1"x2" Herringbone Pattern. Despite their size, these small tiles create a sense of luxury, sophistication and warmth. Rather than simply small square tiles, this intricate design adds visual interest to the space, making it the perfect backdrop for entertaining guests.

2. Mid Century Modern Meets Art Deco Bathroom

For a small tile bathroom design that seamlessly blends Mid-Century Modern and Art Deco styles, consider using a basketweave pattern on the floor. For these small bathroom floor tiles, we used a gorgeous blend of  11 Deco White, 75 Emerald and a Custom Seaglass color. Complement this pattern with 2"x2" small square tiles on the shower floor and detailed trim throughout. The combination of small tiles in different shapes and colors brings a harmonious yet visually striking element to the bathroom.

3. Boho Kitchen Backsplash with Small Triangles

Stepping away from small bathroom tiles, we love showing off these petite pieces into the kitchen as well. Bring a bohemian vibe to your kitchen with a backsplash adorned with small triangles in a vibrant emerald color. The 75 Emerald glazed triangles create a playful and artistic look, adding a dash of personality to the heart of the home.

5. Small Hexagons Tiled Entryway

For a subtle yet impactful splash of style, consider using small tiles in a hexagon format to line the entryway of your home. We love the subtle ombre effect that show how neutrals can make just as big of a statement as color. These small tiles provide a modern and sophisticated touch, creating a seamless transition between the outdoors and indoors.
