Conservatory tile ideas require durable materials that can withstand drastic changes in heat and moisture levels. A conservatory is a window-filled room with doors that lead to outdoor gardens. The room can be decorated sitting-room style, with chairs, tables and potted plants. It can also be decorated garden style with raised beds and plant tables.
Wood accents are important for a conservatory with a log cabin style. Wood tiles weather too quickly to be suitable conservatory flooring, but faux-wood ceramic tiles are durable and create a wood parquet effect. Faux pine tile with a herringbone pattern creates an intricate style. Faux maple tile with a basic square pattern creates a traditional style.
Earthy conservatory tiles help enhance the natural tone of a wood-framed conservatory. Large, rectangle, glazed terra cotta tiles create a simple style for a matching conservatory floor and garden path. Rough-cut, light grey slate tiles create a cobblestone-patterned floor that blends in with an assortment of earthy styles.
Rose patterns are popular for adding a feminine touch to any type of conservatory. The square porcelain tile consists of a pink-and-white dotted background scattered with red rosebuds for a cheerful theme. A large ceramic tile with subtle lines of pink and yellow roses against a cream background creates a soft theme.
Sleek lines and bold colours complement the thick metal framing found in most modern conservatories. Large, square, glossy black marble tile floors look particularly good with wrought iron ceiling beams. A random pattern of small ceramic tiles in red, jade, aqua, amber and emerald looks particularly good with monotone furniture.
Southwest-themed tiles can be colourful and earthy to invoke a desert feeling. Terra cotta tile with a painted pattern is the most popular choice. A light, square terra cotta tile with a thin, brown diamond outline and a tiny stamped sun creates a casual style. A large, dark, square terra cotta tile with pinwheel swirls of tiny green jalapeño peppers creates a detailed style.
Quality pieces of stone or marble tile creates a traditional style for any conservatory design. Large, rectangular granite tiles with peach and grey flecks match well with a room full of potted plants. Small, polished, brown marble tiles with white veins match well with white metal or plush leather furniture.
Intricately painted porcelain tiles match well with the delicate white framing of a Victorian conservatory. A medium cream tile with green vines in a lattice pattern and a yellow daisy in the middle creates a classic style. A small white tile with a colourful hummingbird and tree branch pattern creates a seamless design with a cheerful style.
