Wall tiles have become a fast-growing trend in interior design. Nowadays, tiles are no longer just for your floor—they’re also for walls or other standing foundations.
Putting together wall pattern tiles gives your building an edge over others in terms of creativity, modernization, and design flair.
What else can wall pattern tiles do for your space? Read on to find out!
They can add a pop of color
Patterned tiles (as well as patterns formed out of tiles) can elevate any monochromatic space, especially if they are the center of attention.
Have your tiled walls stand out with bright colors and stark designs, and they’ll be sure to give your room, house or building a touch of whimsy! Just take a look at this inspo from this applec_interiors project.
Best of all, these tiles are sure to make people ask where you got the idea—and you can always share that they’re more than just regular tiles; they’re Machuca tiles.

They can modernize your space
Beyond going from monochrome to bright, adding wall tiles to your space can also modernize it, like if you add tiles of a contrasting style and theme to an otherwise plain or old-fashioned area, like how our tiles were used in this semi-outdoor space (photo credits to @chamsssey!)
Putting tiles side by side with brick or concrete makes them stand out, and there are so many ways to do that: on floors, on staircases, and yes, on walls.
They can provide sophisticated elegance
Whether you’re using patterned tiles or patterns formed out of tiles, the right color combination and its interactions with your space’s overall theme can make any space go from drab to exquisite without sacrificing the overall look.
The right palette of colors—be it coordinated, contrasting, or all of the same hue—can add unique appeal to any room that a blank wall could never replicate otherwise. Take Ms. Jaja Galvez-Suarez’s tiled wall for example, which coordinated shades of green with pops of red, blue, and yellow.
They can seamlessly match your aesthetic
If you’re the kind of person who wants a seamlessly connected design but still values a bit of texture in their area (like our client, Silong), opt for an embossed wall tile!
This style of tile is great for transforming a room that’s a bit flat into one that has depth. We highly recommend it for spaces like your kitchen backsplash — try it out for yourself and see how it brings your entire interior scheme together!
They can add depth
Using our plain-colored tiles for accent walls, you can easily create some character and dimension for your space — which is a style choice that a client of ours, One Zero, applied for one of their past projects!
Plain-colored tiles also help the area look simple and clean, making them an excellent choice for those seeking to tastefully layer more design elements in their space without overpowering existing elements.
The darker blue brick tiles used in the photo above, for example, are fairly neutral and relaxing. The slight variations in each handmade tile create the illusion of depth on an otherwise flat-looking surface, and adds to its overall charm!
They can create statement pieces
Have semi-outdoor structures make the shift from ordinary to awe-inspiring with standing tiles. This is perfect for homes with understated designs, to suddenly have a pop of gilded glory in the background.
Whether you want it to blend in or stand out, your structure will definitely call attention. In fact, it might look so good that your guests stick around the garden all day, admiring the view! See Paoay Church’s fountain (photo courtesy of @kwittybay), where our tiles were used to accentuate their greco-roman inspired courtyard.
They can be their own statement pieces
If you really want to call attention to your wall tiles and have their effect completely transform your space, have a tile wall right in the middle (or outside) of your home.
There’s nothing more striking than a mismatched tile wall, where guests will have a visual feast trying to find connections or themes among the patterns.
We guarantee they’ll love looking at your tile wall, because it could never be boring. There’s just so much to take in with our vibrant, assorted wall tiles (like this photo, courtesy of Ms. Rica Ramos Santos)—so sit back and enjoy!
They’ll turn your house into a home
Finally, nothing beats the quaint, antique history behind each Machuca tile that dates back centuries. With a story this enormous, you can bet that the tiles look like they’re made for a different era—and yet, putting them in walls brings them back to the present and modernizes their effect. It’s something that @happynestinthetropics has done all over her home—including their cute Kubo kitchen!
So there you have it, patterned wall tiles add color, texture, and history to any sort of house … much like the people living in it do.
We hope the examples we’ve presented have given you an idea of how wall tiles can completely transform any area, be it indoors or semi-outdoors. As a little takeaway, we’d like to add this to sum it up: wall tiles are perfect for modernizing a space, giving it elegance and grace, and even for designs that are all over the place. But just as well, they’ve got a story to tell—and that is something that you can’t replace!
