For a classic look, crackle glaze metro tiles in any ivory or cream will make the space feel light and airy, while darker shades like peacock blue are guaranteed to add a sense of drama.
Vintage bathrooms: with excellent water-repelling properties, crackle glazed tiles make the ideal partner for period-style bathrooms. Traditional bathroom suites will be elevated to another level with a backdrop of antique glazed tiles. You can even mix and match colours like olive green and white for a classic colour palette or create a neutral haven using shortbread coloured glazed tiles on the walls finished with skirting and border tiles for an authentic finish.
Period-style hallways: as the gateway to your home, your hallway deserves to have its own decor theme. For those with older properties, replicating traditional hallway designs using crackle glaze tiles on the walls could be just what’s needed. Tiled up to hip height, choose a neutral colour like smoked grey with white walls above. Paired with some antique furniture and decorative accents to finish, you can be transported back to a bygone era every time you step through the door.
