Whether modern, rustic, retro or traditional, red tiles in the right shade have the ability to make a real style statement. Take inspiration from 70s interiors with muddy terracotta tones, or go bright and contemporary with pink-hued berry shades. From playful terrazzo and hexagonal porcelain mosaics to luxurious Rosso marble, we have an expertly curated selection of red tiles for you to explore.
Decorating with red tiles might not feel like a natural choice for the colour shy, but there’s more to red than the bright, pillar-box shade that first springs to mind when you think of this hue. Red floor tiles in muted tones, such as our Hendrix red porcelain design, are a transformative choice for kitchens and bathrooms. A concrete-effect tile in a chalky, desaturated burgundy colourway, this purplish red tile offers both a fresh take on terrazzo and a nod to industrial interiors.
One thing to consider when working a strong colour like red, is that the size of the space, how its used and the amount of light it receives, might need to dictate the shade and the application. For example, when choosing red kitchen tiles, you might be inclined to opt for softer tones, like those in our Rosso marble, which combines sandy and clay-coloured reds with pale mineral veining and a tumbled edge. For a warmer, earthier take on a classic chequerboard tile floor, choose a square format and combine with our gleaming white Calacatta marble.
If you love modernist interiors, then a 70s-style tile scheme in coral or russet is sure to inspire. These deep, orange-tinged tiles can be applied wall to wall or as a focal feature, and work really well as well in kitchens as they do in bathrooms. Another great way to implement red bathroom tiles is to choose a design with a heavy, lustrous glaze, which will help lift the overall look of a strong colour, particularly when applied across a large area. Our Riad gloss porcelain tile is a perfect example of a red tile, and can be combined with matt-finish tiles from the same range.
Terrazzo tiles are another effortless way to add colour, and are an easy alternative to red wall tiles if you’re searching for a striking design with pops of red. The Terrazzo Nouveau collection’s ruby colourway replicates chips of red and grey marble set into pale cement, for a versatile design that can be used on walls and floors. And finally, if red tiles still feel a little too bold for your liking, base your scheme around neutral shades, and use red tiles in small doses, such as behind a bathroom basin or for the inside of a recessed shelf.
