How to use Moroccan Tile in your Home - Tips and Ideas for using this Material

Updated: Jun 25

Moroccan Tile has been the design trend for the past couple of years now. It's a fun way to add a dramatic statement to any space. When I first found moroccan tile, I thanked the design gods. Finally, a patterned tile. Don't get me wrong, I love a bold ceramic or textural porcelain, but sometimes your space just needs a patterned tile.

But loving a fun tile is one thing. The challenge is where to put it in your space. Here are a few ways you can use this fun tile in your home and interior design.



Fireplaces are natural focal points for rooms. Add some funky tile, and all eyes will be focused on this statement for other reasons. A design tip is to take the tile only up to the mantle and leave the rest the wall color. A fully tiled fireplace will be too busy and be distracting for the eye and mind.


It's common for us to add moroccan tile to our floors, but since it typically has a busy pattern, this can be visually overwhelming in larger spaces. If you're wanting to add this tile to your floors, add it in smaller spaces, such as powder or laundry rooms. If you do have an open floor plan, you can inlay tile in a certain area to 'room' that portion off, such as a kitchen or entrance to your home.
