Those with a penchant for the Instagram hashtag #ihavethisthingwithfloors will like this... Slogan tiles are the latest trend in flooring, marrying the old charm of floor tiles with a modern, tongue-in-cheek wit, and ever since we stepped foot inside House Curious – the stunning London-based shoot and event space – we’ve fallen for the look.
It was their playful ‘Powder Room’ mosaic in the downstairs loo that caught our eye, and since then, we’ve spotted a host of other slogan prints – from ‘Hello’ entryways to ‘You Look Good’ bathrooms.
We asked Sommer Pyne, the Founder and creative vision behind House Curious, how she created the look, and were pleased to hear she had a thrifty interiors hack to share: simply buy plain sheets of hexagon tiles in your preferred colour from Topps Tiles, remove some and replace them with the same size tiles in a contrasting colour to form a pattern or word – we love the simplicity of monochrome, but opt for bolder combinations for a more statement look.
Not keen on DIY? There are plenty of bespoke tile brands who can bring your idea to life. We rate Tile Fire, who've custom made designs for clients including the Bel Air restaurant and the Hoxton Hotel.
Whatever slogan you choose, this cheap and cheerful option is the way to get unique flooring that’s 100% Instagram-worthy.
