More than just a tile!
Tiles are usually thought of as the foundation for a wall or floor and most people really only use tile for those two applications. It is also very common to see tile used as an artistic accent or a beautiful back-splash. Porcelanosa Gruppo would like to share their out of the box uses for tile, as a source of inspiration for your next home design project. These ideas will make you think of tile as more than just a functional choice.
Tile as a Headboard
In the bedroom, most think of a headboard as an upholstered add-on to the bed frame. The concept of a headboard can also work nicely as more of an abstract feature, in the form of tiling the wall adjacent to the bed. It offers a striking floor-to-ceiling focal point and is an easy way to add drama to your bedroom.

Tile as an Accent Rug/Carpeting
Seamlessly integrating patterned tile with flooring can mimic the look of carpeting or an accent rug. This works especially well with patterned tiles laid as the “carpet”, surrounded by a neutral colored tile.
