3 Way To Use Fan Tiles In your Next Project.

Fan tiles

If you’re looking for a modern, yet unique upgrade to your home then look no further than a fan-tiled feature. Fan tiles, also known as fish scale or scallop tiles, are one of our favourite shapes right now, so we’ve rounded up a list of ways you can incorporate these in your home. As always, we suggest seeking advice before laying any kind of uniquely shaped tile, as they can be quite intricate to lay in comparison to your regular square or rectangle tiles.


The kitchen or bathroom sink backsplash is a great place to get creative with fan tiles. These areas are commonly known to stand out within the home, so it’s the perfect opportunity to go that extra mile with 2019’s most popular tile shape. You have the choice to opt for a subtle, neutral shade such as a Carrara Marble Fan Mosaic and blend with the other shades within the room or to add a pop of colour. With either option, you are adding personality to the room, which is why fan tiles are a great point of difference.


The one space in any home to benefit from a feature wall is, of course, the bathroom. When using a fan tile, there is no better place to include this feature wall than in the shower. What you are looking for is using a single shade stand-out colour that complements the other tiles and interior design elements in the bathroom. Fan tiles also work great in a shower niche. Shower niches are an amazing detail that adds great value to your bathroom. Basically, this is a storage space for shampoos, soaps, razors, etc. For a high-end element to your bathroom, you can use fan tiles for this spot only or as an addition to your feature wall. Get ready to say goodbye to plastic shower storage!


Moving into the kitchen, filling the void of the back of the island bench is a common renovation. This is a space that is commonly plain and matches the colour of the cabinets or walls, making it the perfect space to modernise and add personality. Whether you opt for a dramatic colour or keep it neutral, adding fan tiles here is something you can complete relatively quickly for a large impact upgrade.

However you decide to use your fan tiles in your home renovation, they are sure to add a high-end element to your home and increase the overall value.
