We are always looking for new and innovative ways to to add decorative tile into a space.  We were recently tagged in a few projects that showcased stunning tile rugs and realized this is the perfect option for homeowners who want a cost-effective and impacting renovation idea.  These recent projects had us sifting through past projects and we soon rediscovered a handful of projects that involved utilizing tile rugs in a space.  We went ahead and put together a list of some of our favorite tile rug projects that can be found in master bathrooms, hallways, and even laundry rooms!  Keep reading to get ideas for your next home project.

1. Under the Tub

If you want to spice things up under your bathtub, add a few tiles around it and your bathroom is completely transformed.  It looks elegant and as you can see, only requires a small amount of patterned tile.  See below for two examples of how designers added patterned tile as a rug under their clients’ bathtub.

2. Master Bath Centerpiece

If it’s not in your budget to add decorative tile throughout your entire bathroom floor, we recommend going with an eye-catching tile rug that will act as the centerpiece in the room.  As you can see below, your eyes are drawn directly to the centerpiece tile rug.  Cost-effective and also transformative!

3. Laundry Room Runner

Switch out that carpet runner for a permanent tile runner!  This is a great option to add to rooms like your laundry room or guest bathroom.  As you can see, Guided Home Design only had to use a small amount of decorative tile to create this tile rug and the results were stunning.

4. Down the Hall

It’s amazing how a small-scale tile rug can completely shape a room, or in these two cases-a hallway!  Not many people think to add a patterned tile in their hallway but the two examples below will show you that it should be a more common addition.
