Where did Moroccan-style interior design come from?
Moroccan design, defined in part by its use of geometric patterns, first emerged between the 6th and 8th centuries, and is an aesthetic that’s been prominently used ever since, due to its timeless and universally loved designs.
In ancient times, Moroccan design, otherwise known as zellige, was used to create art that didn’t represent a living person, in order to comply with the Islamic law at the time. Little did they know when the law was created, they were also creating an art style that would continue to be used across eras and into the 21st century - infiltrating the modern home and numerous other buildings, such as restaurants, hotels, museums and even the exteriors of buildings. Moroccan design has evolved over the years, with new colours and patterns being introduced, but has consistently adhered to the design foundations surrounding its conception.
Moroccan tiles for kitchens, bathrooms and more
Whatever room you’re looking to reinvent, Moroccan tiles provide a stylish and practical solution to creating an effortlessly stylish home. Whether they’re for a statement floor design in your bathroom or a feature wall in the entrance to your home designed for all to see, we have a Moroccan tile suited to your needs.
Carefully crafted kitchens: Naturally, in the majority of homes, the kitchen is the most used room in the house - meaning it’s subject to many spillages, splashes and marks. With this in mind, you need a tile that’s going to be able to stand up to years of daily wear and tear while still bringing evergreen elegance to the room. Moroccan tiles could be used to great effect in a statement splashback, given the opportunity to shine when paired with a neutral-coloured tile or paint. For example, the elegant Parian Grey Decors tile would serve as a striking yet sophisticated statement when used alongside the Parian Medium Grey tile or Parian Dark Grey tile to provide a contrast.
Boutique bathrooms: Similarly to the kitchen, the bathroom is also exposed to heavy footfall from the whole family on a daily basis - and often several times throughout the day. While you need your bathroom to be highly efficient and extremely practical, you don’t want to overlook the design. To bring some Moroccan beauty into the bathroom, you could enhance the wall behind the sink by creating a splashback-style feature. Alternatively, if you have a walk in shower, why not create a feature wall using our Parian Coloured Decors tiles? For extra style points, let your bathroom shine through the use of vibrant colours, utilising towels and bathroom accessories in complementary shades to complete the look.
Luxurious living rooms: The living room is a space best used for chilling out and winding down after a busy day - and while Moroccan tiles may not seem like an obvious choice for a living room, when styled correctly, they can create a far warmer and more welcoming space. Moroccan-style tiles, such as our V&A Godwin Grey Matt tiles, are right at home surrounding the fireplace - enhancing what’s already a statement feature. Alternatively, you could look to create a circular design on the living room floor, using Moroccan tiles in the centre surrounded by plain tiles in more muted tones - positioning your furniture around this feature to achieve a mesmerising floor space.
Eye-catching entrances: With the entrance being the first area of your home that’s seen by guests (and the space that greets you at the end of a long day), you may choose to have your Moroccan theme begin in this gateway to your living space. For example, you may choose to introduce Moroccan floor tiles to your home’s lobby, using iconic geometric patterns to create a commanding sense of style from the second you step into your home. If you want to go all out, you could continue the design further, taking this exotic-look flooring into the hallway. A tile like the HLine Effect Ice would provide the perfect Moroccan-inspired solution to making a powerful first impression in your home.
Beautiful bedrooms: When it comes to your bedroom, it’s best to aim for a calming vibe, as this is the room that should help you to relax in peace and enjoy a great night’s sleep. Using Moroccan tiles is an effective way of achieving this atmosphere without ever straying into bland design territory. Install Yurtbay Seramiks Nikea tiles on one wall of the bedroom and complement these tiles with dark grey paint, bedding and carpeting, creating a cosy but effortlessly stylish bedroom to enjoy every evening.
