After a long and dreary winter, there are a number of ways to start brightening up your space this spring. Small changes, such as adding mosaic tile or creating a statement with accent tile, can really make a big difference. With a little effort and an eye for creativity, your home will be ready for spring in no time.

Add Pops of Color

One of the easiest ways to add some pizzazz to a backsplash or tiled shower area is to add a mosaic tile border or interesting accent tiles. Even if you already have tile in place, you can easily enhance your tile pattern with a dramatic enclosure or an exciting inset of metallic tiles. You can create a border that adds new color to the space or use it as a way to pull in other colors from your design scheme. In the kitchen, for instance, you can add a border of the same marble or granite that's used as your countertops. The end product will be visually appealing and will also help unify the room.

Make a Statement

If you're looking to make stunning statements throughout your home, consider adding pops of Daltile's Jewel Tide or Color Wave line in various areas. The Jewel Tide line features multiple color options, including Sunset Path, which features red and orange hues, and Silver Shore, which is more toned-down and neutral. Either of these color schemes will bring new life to a tired wall, fireplace, or kitchen island.

Tile Your Surfaces

There are many surfaces in your bathroom and kitchen that provide a perfect spot for tile installation. Tile is very versatile and will help protect against damage from water and humidity. With a variety of styles, colors, finishes, and textures, tile gives you endless options for adding those extra touches around the house.

Try adding items such as shower benches or chair rails comprised of ceramic. These additions will not only be functional, but they'll also be great conversation pieces in your bathroom. If you're updating your kitchen, get creative and consider tiling your countertops, cabinet doors, or even your dining room table.

Get ready to break out of the doldrums of winter and achieve true vibrancy with the use of tile. The steps are simple, and your home will be a brighter, sunnier place that you'll love spending time in.
