Tiles can be used to decorate your home and make it more functional. They come in multiple colours and textures, delivering a range of looks. A popular D.I.Y. project, tiling is also a great way to protect surfaces like walls and floors from moisture and stains.
From building furniture to tiling a splashback, Bunnings Workshop members have shared many ways to use tiles in different parts of their homes.
Get inspired by the examples below and let us know if you have any questions.
1. Tile your splashback
Tiles are commonly used to protect walls in busy and moisture-rich areas like kitchens and laundries. Dina and Jake (@dinaandjake) included a stunning mosaic tiled splashback while updating their laundry.
You can also use tiles to add interest and character to existing furniture. Inspired by European wall patterns and designs, Mariana (@lifestylebymari) created this mosaic tile table by upcycling a discarded table.
4. Tile your floor
Tiled floors are durable and easy to maintain. Leanne (@craftyhopper) used classic and textured white tiles on her bathroom floor in thisbudget makeover.
Tiles can help create an attractive and low-maintenance entry or outdoor area. Community member @LaCasaDIY opted to use light terrazzo tiles while giving their outdoor area a Mediterranean-inspired makeover, brightening up the space.
You can make good use of leftover tiles by creating accessories like coasters and placemats. In this quick and easy project, Shannon (@shannonrennison) used sealant and paint to turn small white tiles into decorative coasters.
