For interior decorating enthusiasts who are tired of their subway tiles and looking for a refreshing change at home, fish scale tiles just may be your solution. With their scalloped appearance and bright colours, tiling which brings the scales of a fish to mind can easily rejuvenate your space. We’ve curated a few decorative ways to embrace this artful tile trend for the season ahead.

Refresh your bathroom with dark brown tiles and a claw bathtub: If your bathroom is crying out for an upgrade, turn to large fish scale tiles in a chocolate brown hue. These can be used to bring your bathroom flooring to a new level. Meanwhile, a vintage inspired white and brown tub with gleaming gold hardware offers a sophisticated finish. To flatter your interior design, stick to ivory walls, metallic mirrors and sleek white cabinetry.

Update your kitchen with an aquamarine-coloured and white backsplash: While fish scale tiles can be perfectly suitable for your bathroom décor, incorporating fish scale tiles into your kitchen backsplash can be a chic move. Turn to turquoise, aquamarine and white scales for an elegant space. Finish off your décor with brilliant white cabinets, pale hardwood flooring and gleaming white countertops.

Turn to pale blue kitchen tiles and grey cabinetry: Fish scale tiles look equally as at home in a kitchen surrounded by light neutral tiles and dangling gold chandeliers. Look for funky modern lighting, along with a slate grey colour scheme and stainless steel accents.
