For homeowners who are keen to update their interiors, our unique and characterful fireplace tiles could be just what you need to add personality to your property. Thanks to an eclectic array of design options and styles, you can find the heath tiles needed to add an understated elegance to your fireplace borders or a touch of drama to your home’s hearth.
Whether you’re looking for a floral design or searching for a symmetrical pattern, our porcelain and ceramic fireplace tiles come in gloss or matt anti-slip finishes. So you can choose the colour, style, pattern and material that will be right at home with the rest of the room’s aesthetic.
While a fire’s main job might be to provide warmth to a room, this feature can be about so much more. Thanks to an array of patterns and styles, heat-resistant tiles can bring your whole fireplace to life - and they’re not just confined to fireplaces, either. If you have a stove or hob that you feel could benefit from a style update, these hearth tiles can provide the perfect solution.
Hearth tiles can be used to add character to a fire or log burner, and transform this practical feature into a striking focal point. Unlike tiling walls or floors, you won’t need several packs to get the job done. This means that, as you change up your room’s design, you can choose to switch up your hearth design without the need for a huge budget. Alternatively, you can choose a more neutral design that will stand the test of time and complement any future interior updates you decide to make.
As well as the hearth, our tiles can also be used to create a border for your fireplace. Whether you’re actually using your fireplace as it’s meant to be, or you’ve taken out the fire and are accessorising the space with candles or books instead, tiles provide the perfect decorating solution to add some personality to the room.
On top of all of this, fireplace tiles provide a unique way for you to create a feature in your living room, bedroom or kitchen, and turn a staple part of the room into an eye-catching statement feature in its own right. Often overlooked in favour of walls, floors and furnishings, with a touch of TLC, the fireplace could just be the standout feature you’ve been searching for.
Beyond the aesthetic benefits, fireplace tiles can also provide a practical protective layer for the fireplace itself and surrounding walls and floors, preventing soot and ash from staining other surfaces. As if that’s not enough, hearth tiles are incredibly easy to clean - simply brush and wipe them as you would any other tile. All this means that keeping your fireplace in pristine condition will be an absolute breeze.
Which room your fire is in will largely dictate the type of style, colour and pattern you’re going to opt for when looking at tiles for the fireplace. There’s also the type of fire and whether it’s fully-functional to consider as well. For instance, if you have a traditional open-fire design, you may want to tile both the fireplace wall surround and the hearth. If you have a free-standing wood-burning stove, on the other hand, you may just need hearth tiles for the job.
This can all sound a little overwhelming but luckily for you we’re here to help you get to grips on what might work best in your home. With Tiles Direct, you’ll have plenty of design options to choose from that are sure to make your fireplace the star of the show.
Non-porous with good heat resistance and durability, traditional quarry tiles are perfect for covering hearths for open-fires and log-burners set into a chimney breast, ensuring that these classic-style hearth tiles transform your fireplace from bland to beautiful.
As the winter nights draw in, what better way to draw attention to those roaring red flames than with a gorgeous chequered hearth tile set? Our complete fireplace tile sets are perfect for giving any hearth a hassle-free tile update. This set of traditional quarry tile comes with 58 pieces, made up of black, white, bullnose and corner tiles, and would be equally at home in a modern, minimalist living space as it would be in a more traditional aesthetic.
However, you can also buy them individually in various colours and sizes, allowing you to create your own unique pattern or go with a single colour hearth design. Simply measure the hearth to calculate how many tiles you need and you’re set to go.
For many homeowners an original fireplace is a sought after feature found in living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms and dining rooms in period properties. But, it can be tricky knowing how to update them to give them a new lease of life without having to spend a fortune.
This is where our decorative fireplace tiles come into play. Perfectly poised to beautify a traditional fireplace surround while still keeping with its classic heritage, we have a diverse range of traditional fireplace tiles made for the job.
For instance, if you have a rustic bedroom that’s lucky enough to boast an original fireplace, there’s a variety of floral patterns within our fireplace tile range that would complement this type of interior. From Victorian tile designs to multicoloured, floral-patterned tiles, you’ll find a style that perfectly suits this space and keeps the overall aesthetic bang on-trend.
Country kitchens are home to some unique fireplaces and stoves, often dating back many decades. This could be something as simple as an open-hearth, or a multi-functional Aga or Range cooker that works as well now as it did back in the day.
Whatever quirky stove and fireplace features you have in your kitchen, if you want to maintain all the integrity (and cosiness) of the original design while bringing its aesthetic up to date, we have plenty of fireplace tile options for you.
For traditional fireplaces, opting for some cobalt blue fireplace tiles for the side panels could be the perfect solution. But, these tiles can be equally at home as a tiled splashback trim above a rustic Aga to prevent pesky cooking splatters from marking the walls.
Regardless of where you’re installing your fireplace tiles, the materials used for our hearth tiles vary from anti-slip matt to porcelain and ceramic tiles with a gloss finish. This means that, as well as colours, patterns and styles, you can also choose a material that fits in with the rest of the room’s design.
Ceramic: boasting excellent resistance to heat, hardy ceramic tiles are ideal for fireplace surrounds and hearths. And with such a wide variety of ceramic tiles on offer, there's bound to be a tile style and colour to suit. These tiles also come with a choice of glazed matt or polished finishes, giving you even more ways to style out your fireplace.
Porcelain: porcelain tiles also bring a wealth of benefits for tiled hearths and fireplaces. Offering up a slightly stronger, denser format of tile they're well-equipped to bring a bundle of style and practicality to both modern and traditional style fireplaces.
Quarry tiles: with ground minerals like feldspar and clay that's been fired in high temperatures, quarry tiles deliver an extremely hard and durable tile with excellent heat resistance that makes them a solid choice for covering fireplaces. Available in various colours, these matt finish tiles are primed for creating a traditional looking fireplace design.
For instance, if you want to give your fireplace some extra sparkle, a glossy fireplace tile could be the way to go, bouncing firelight around the room. Alternatively, if you want to give your fireplace a more contemporary finish, matt hearth tiles in an earthy green or terracotta will add texture and depth.
Whether you’re looking for bright and bold or understated and minimalist, we’re confident there’s a fireplace tile style to suit your personality and your home right here.
When it comes to installing fireplace tiles correctly, there are a few rules of thumb to follow - this is especially important if you’re tiling a fully operational fireplace that gets regular use.
While most tiles are heat resistant, not all are equipped for close proximity to direct heat. That’s why it’s essential to always use fireplace tiles specifically designed for this purpose. If you don’t, you could face cracked and blown tiles that you’ll need to replace.
All our fireplace tiles have been manufactured to withstand extreme heat, so you can have peace of mind they won’t lose their aesthetics once the fire’s roaring.
An important part of tiling a fireplace is making sure you keep a suitable distance between the heat source and the tile, even with heat-resistant fireplace tiles (they’re not designed to be used directly in the fireplace).
This is particularly important if you’re looking to tile inside the fireplace behind a free-standing wood stove. The ideal distance is 14cm between the fire and the tile - this will ensure that they won’t crack or discolour from exposure to the heat.
Tiling a fireplace doesn’t differ much from tiling walls and floors. However, we’d recommend picking a specialised heat-resistant tile adhesive over a standard one. While standard adhesives do boast good heat resistance, with prolonged exposure to intense heat there’s a greater possibility it could lose adhesion over time, causing tiles to come away from the wall.
Similar rules apply with tile grout. Make sure you pick a grout that can withstand temperatures up to 100⁰C, or opt for a cement based solution if your tiles will face higher temperatures than this.
