Thanks to the striking aesthetic of these contemporary tiles, split face wall tiles are perfect for creating impactful tiled feature walls in almost any area of the home.
With natural stone options, their surface is more porous than a glazed tile and their rough texture can make them difficult to fully water-proof - even with grout and sealing solutions. As a result, we’d recommend using a porcelain split face replica in very wet areas like showers and bath surrounds.

So, with that technical caveat out of the way, let’s take a look at how and where these gorgeous tiles can be used in the home. From kitchens to living rooms, you can revitalise drab wall spaces by injecting a splash of character with split face wall tiles - and here are a few styling ideas to get you started:
