Selection of Moroccan tiles (wall and floor tiles)
For a sleek and sophisticated wall tile try the Kamal. The clean white background is overlaid with an opulent golden geometric pattern showing an interlinking design. It gives you a cool and contemporary look which is perfect for a feature wall in a bathroom. You can always combine and complement Kamal with cheaper white tiles. These would certainly provide a striking backdrop to a super sleek white suite. The tiles size is 200 x 200 x 6.5mm.
Lavish your walls with these amazing Hana Tiles. They combine delicate sophisticated patterns with a hint of colour. These can be coordinated with a couple of rows of plain coloured tiles for dramatic effect which you’ll also find on the website. Hana is available in a light version (shown here) and a bold option which has blue hues. The tile size is 200 x 200 x 6.5mm.
For an extravagant display, these decorative Fiore Tiles are perfect for the floor or wall. This style is available in a choice of two colours, grey or brown. The mix of contrasting designs featuring scrolling details and diamonds work to provide a patchwork arrangement with a Moroccan-esque feel. Suitable for use in kitchens, bathrooms, hallways or sun rooms for an impact your guests won’t forget. The tile size is 450 x 450 x 10mm.
The Marjorelle Tiles come in two options – Albi and Hayete. They are certainly full of spice with a colourful mix of geometric shapes which will make your floor rich and vibrant. With a distressed appearance, these tiles have plenty of exotic charm. They would look amazing in a conservatory, in a kitchen set against wooden units or lavishing the bathroom floor against a white suite. The tile size is 600 x 600 x 11mm.
These Naklo Tiles really are stunning. The Moresque Encaustic effect large tiles are bold and colourful. With a mix of geometric plus floral designs they are dramatic and distinctive. They alo resemble tiles from the Victorian era so work well in a period property. Suitable for floors, these are ideal for hallways or perhaps a kitchen or bathroom but keep the rest of the décor minimal. The tile size is 450 x 450 x 9.5mm.
Moroccan tiles advice
There are plenty of patterned tiles which give you that exotic and spicy Moroccan flavour. But don’t overdo it, less is more. Tile either the floor or wall with a pattern but not both surfaces. If you’re tiling the floor then keep the walls a neutral colour. I personally think that walls look wonderful in white against these designs. Alternatively, you could pick out one of the colours from the tile pattern for your walls. If you’re tiling the walls think about a feature wall or just tiling half way up to waist height.
