One question we get asked often is: how can I use the different Deco Dots tile series in my interior?
This is a great question to ask! We have 3 different variations of the Deco Dots as a part of our made-to-order tile line. We offer the Bristol, the Saybrook, and the Damico Deco Dots Collections. Each set has 16 different designs that are meant to complement each other. They all stem from a similar color palette and can be used as a mosaic, or ordered individually.
Take a look at each tile collection, below, and keep reading to see how you can feature Deco Dots in your home!
5 Ways To Use Deco Dots
1. Customize the Stone Type
A great use for the Deco Dots collections? A custom tile project! Match the tile to your interior by customizing the stone type of these collections. We offer eight, natural stone types ranging from a traditional, Tumbled Durango to a contemporary, Honed Carrara. With so many stone options, you can find a tile body that fits seamlessly into your reimagined space. Below, you can see a side-by-side comparison of different tile bodies and how they impact the look of the final tile.
You can see from these examples that stone choice plays a big part in the overall aesthetic of the tile. Here, it’s clear to see that a tile body like Limestone or Tumbled Durango can give off a rustic, Spanish-inspired aesthetic, while a tile body like Carrara gives off a more refined, classic aesthetic.
2. Repeat the Same Pattern
As we mentioned above, the Deco Dots patterns can be used as a mosaic or individually. A great, and unique, way to incorporate these collections into your interior is to repeat one pattern from any of the collections on a 6×6 tile. This approach lets you create a cohesive look and a focal feature that speaks to your individual style.
Below, you’ll find a great example of what this approach looks like as a final tile installation. Here, Big Sky Design utilized the VDD13 Pattern from the Saybrook Collection to create a stunning fireplace surround.
3. Use as an Accent Tile
If you are working with a smaller budget, consider using the Deco Dots tiles as subtle accents in your overall design. Instead of using the collections as an entire backsplash or floor design, cherry-pick your favorite designs and scatter them throughout one element of your design. This concept still gives your home eye-catching decor without making your budget balloon. Below, you’ll find a fabulous example of this approach, featuring the Saybrook Collection as 1×1 accent tiles.
4. Change the Tile Size
Not many people realize how important the scale of a design is when choosing tile for a space. Consider playing around with the pattern scales of the Deco Dots tiles to find the right fit for your final design. All of the Deco Dot patterns are available on 2×2″ tiles, 3×3″ tiles, 4×4″ tiles, 6×6″ tiles, 8×8″ tiles, 12×12″ tiles, or 18×18″ tiles. Below, you’ll find a few visual examples featuring the same design in different scales. Do you see what a difference scale makes?
5. Mix and Match Patterns
While some people want to repeat a single pattern in their space, some homeowners want to select a few patterns from the Deco Dots collections and mix them together creating a mosaic or patchwork look, like the example below.
To further illustrate this point, take a look at another Big Sky Design below that perfectly encapsulates the mix-and-match approach. Here, the design team opted to use a multitude of patterns from the Saybrook Collection to create this North Carolina kitchen backsplash. What do you think of this finished look?
