If you’re looking for the ultimate finishing touch for any home tiling project, border tiles could be the pièce de résistance your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or living room needs.
Specifically designed and shaped to add an elegant, high-quality trim to any tiled wall or floor, these thin tiles are equally capable of sectioning off an area of the room or invigorating an otherwise stripped-back theme. As a long strip of border tiles creates a decisive line, they can also be used to separate two contrasting designs - dividing a wall or floor into multiple distinct sections.
Now that you know the basics, let’s dig deeper into our range of border tiles to help you find the right tile for your next home design project.
The beauty of border tiles is that material options are varied - with tiling solutions available to shoppers on a variety of budgets. The tiles in our collection which are long, thin and therefore perfect for use in a statement border come in materials ranging from affordable ceramic to opulent porcelain and even mirrored glass - so whether you’re looking for rustic charm, exotic influences or glitz and glamour, we’ve got you covered.
Different finishes throughout our selection make it a breeze building your border tiles into an existing design scheme, too. We’ve got glossy bronze, grey wood-effect, cool matt, imitation marble and more - so whatever textures and colour schemes are already in place in your home, there’s guaranteed to be a border tile that will effortlessly complement your existing look.
The good news, though, is that, with a sprinkle of creativity, virtually any tile imaginable can serve as a beautiful border tile. By using a tile - even one that’s square or hexagonal in shape - to create a smart dividing line between two sections of your wall or floor, or drawing a frame around the edge of a room, any tile you like can become part of a stylish, eye-catching border.
Whether you’re designing a room from scratch or adding stylish flourishes to an already stylish room in your home, finding interior elements in the perfect shade can be a tricky business. Thankfully, at Tiles Direct, we stock border tiles in a broad spectrum of colours so that homeowners of all tastes can find a product that blends in beautifully with its surroundings.
Classic shades include rich reds (ideal for luxurious living areas or bedrooms), cool blues and greens (which are always right at home in bathrooms) and monochrome options like white, black and grey. Each shade in our vibrant collection comes with its own connotations and uses - and understanding these is a crucial first step to making border tiles work in your home.
Warm shades such as red, orange and brown are cosy and welcoming, as well as conjuring images of exotic, faraway destinations like Greece, Italy and Morocco. For this reason, they’re best used in decadent, Victorian-inspired living rooms or bedrooms, or when transforming a bland bathroom into a portal to a gorgeous Mediterranean villa.
Cooler colours including blue, teal, turquoise and green are refreshing and relaxing - helping homeowners to clear their minds and kick back in their own personal oasis.
Depending on the nature of your interior design project, you could be looking for small, dainty border tiles or much larger statement tiles to serve as the focal point of your design. Thankfully, at Tiles Direct, we’ve got a selection of different dimensions available - making it easy to find the ideal size and shape for your unique needs.
Our smallest border tiles come in at just 5cm x 15cm, perfect for introducing a thin, decisive line to any room - if you’re looking for something smart, subtle and stripped-back. Up from that, we stock tiles in 7.5cm x 20cm, 15.8cm x 31.6cm and, at the upper end, 15cm x 60cm. These large border tiles are guaranteed to get all eyes on your design - able to provide a sophisticated substitute for wall art, if you want to avoid hanging frames and let your walls do the talking.
We understand that each and every one of our tiles is different and therefore comes with its own unique applications for different design projects - and with a broad range of styles offered within our border tiles collection, we hope whatever you’re looking to achieve in your home that you’ll find the perfect tile right here.
Whether you’re a traditionalist when it comes to interior decorating or you like to stay firmly in the 21st century in all of your design efforts, you’ve come to the right place. Our range spans a variety of eras and creative movements to keep homeowners of all tastes satisfied - from rustic block-colour border tiles with a bevelled finish to glazed ceramic tiles inspired by the Victorian aesthetic, and even cool geometric designs in stark, dramatic colour combinations.
Budget is a key consideration for anyone embarking on updates to their home, as the various materials and equipment needed can amount to a pretty hefty total price tag, all told. The good news is that, thanks to the variety of sizes and materials we have on offer, our border tiles also come at a range of different price points.
With tiles, prices are ultimately dictated by material and size - meaning our cheapest tile in this range, costing just £1.99 per tile, is the Original Rail Electric Blue tile. Made from affordable ceramic and just 5cm x 15cm in size, this is a highly cost-effective option for any border tiling project.
At the top of the range is our luxurious Staturio Border tile, which is 15cm x 60cm and costs £17.99. While this is, of course, a greater upfront cost for your tiles, being made from authentic porcelain means these will last you a lifetime and continue looking their best for years to come.
At Tiles Direct, we pride ourselves on offering high-quality tiling solutions at competitive prices - and our border tiles range is no different. Here, you’ll find luxurious materials, professional finishes, practical properties, jaw-dropping styles and versatile colour options - all with the added bonus of being wallet-friendly.
