Fireplace Tile Design Ideas


Make your fireplace the focal point of the room by selecting a tile pattern that grabs attention and sets the right mood. Tile is durable, easy to maintain and doesn’t have the fire safety worries you might find with other materials. A stylish tile design is a great way to highlight your fireplace surrounds, hearths and mantles.

2018 Fireplace Tile Design Trends

Creating a striking fireplace has become an easy way to add a unique statement to your home. Natural elements, like stone, establish a classic feel, and marble tiles add an elegant touch. Go rustic with wood-look ceramic or porcelain, a popular trend that brings warmth and richness to the space — without the danger of flammability. Architectural wall tile is a perfect way to add eye-catching texture. Want a fresh perspective for your fireplace area? Patterns like herringbone or hexagons offer a sophisticated look. A design trend we love is creating an accent wall by extending your tile design up to the ceiling or across the entire wall.

Modern Styles

For a modern fireplace design, focus on straight lines and keeping it simple. Create a stylish look by sticking with a design that is monochromatic or subtle in patterning. Consider glass mosaic tile, which can add contemporary sophistication to any home. Black grantite is a popular choice for creating a luxurious atmosphere, and porcelain is always a great option. Marble is a timeless way to add elegance and glamour. If you’re looking for a style that’s clean, classy and warm, modern is the way to go.

Rustic Styles

Want to create an inviting and cozy atmosphere in your home? Set the mood with a natural stone tile featuring a slate or pebble texture. One of our favorite ideas is installing faux-wood tile to establish a rustic feel. These extremely durable tiles are timeless, beautiful, heatproof and completely fire-resistant. We also offer reclaimed wood options that establish a uniquely comfortable setting.
