Three Dimensional Fluting

Posted in: Wall Tiles

Fluted and reeded details are a huge trend in interiors and their popularity lies in the fact that they can be used to break up an otherwise seamless surface. Adding visual appeal and a tactile finish, fluted surfaces can be found in everything from reeded glass fronted cabinets within kitchens and bathrooms to fluted tiles such as our St Pancras ceramic gloss and Mizu Mosaic Marble collections.

Tactility & Texture

Ideal for retro themes or ultra-modern spaces, fluted designs can enhance otherwise flat surfaces if you choose the same tile and colour. The St Pancras tiles from our new Rituals collection for instance come in Royal Green, Peacock Blue, Fern, Coral and Deep White in Square, Brick and Fluted Brick shapes. Use the fluted bricks to create a mid-height border around bathroom or kitchen walls to add tactility and texture to the space.

Transitional Trend

Fluted tiles can also be used to create an Art Deco feel and you can choose a classic colour for a traditional look or a muted shade for a more modern vibe. Our Mizu Marble Honed Finish Mosaic has a soft contemporary look that’s perfect for bathrooms, ensuites and cloakrooms.

Pure Glass

You can pick up the fluted and reeded theme with a few carefully placed fluted glass candle holders, vases and glass jars for storage. Cabinets with fluted glass doors also have the added benefit of obscuring any clutter inside from view.
