We like hardwood floor as much as the next guy because it’s timeless classic that will always look warm and classy. However, there’s no reason why wood should only be used on the floors. That’s what this new trend is all about. We’re taking wooden tile and creating accents all around the house.

This way we create unique rustic accents that warm up any room and make your home a cozy place. The new take on wooden tile is to have it everywhere we see fit – from accents walls and  tabletops to vanities, mirrors and even light fixtures, not forgetting the hardwood floor. Because for as many new ways we can find for using wood creatively, there’s always a place for the classic design.

Bedroom Accent Wall and Bed Frame

Wood tile creates a cozy rustic feel as an accent, as well as the focal point of the room. The combination of wooden wall, floor and bed frame enables the design to maintain rustic feel all throughout.

Wood Tile Kitchen Backsplash

Kitchen backsplash is one of the best ways to showcase a statement accent in room decor. It oozes rustic warmth and creates a lot of decor interest. What a great home decor project it is.

Many people have shown interest in wood tiled shower walls and we can see why. Rustic accents are being embraced in modern interior design wholeheartedly and there’s no better way to make a house look like a home. A rustic bathroom is a great way to surprise your guests as well.

Reclaimed Wood Bedroom Accent Wall

Reclaimed wood comes with the notion of recycling and contributing to making our planet cleaner. But that’s not the main reason why this accent wall looks so great. It’s about the shabby chic look that weathered wood creates and the warmth of the pattern.

While accent walls are very impressive you may not necessarily want to get involved in remodeling your home. If you still want small rustic accents with wood tile in your decor, try wall art.

Wood Tile Counters

Wooden countertops are popular for their texture, color and durability, but there’s no reason why entire counters or cabinets wouldn’t benefit from wood tile pattern. It’s a great accent in the kitchen and you can even do it yourself.

Reclaimed Wood Floor

Hardwood floors may be classic but we can be creative with them as well. The weathered shabby chic look of reclaimed wood gives this floor an exquisite look to crave for.

Wood Tile Countertop

Wooden countertops are popular for their durability and texture so we can experiment with tile here as well. There are countless wood tile patterns to create a unique rustic kitchen decor accent.

Herringbone Wood Tile Tabletop

For a different take on wooden tabletops try a herringbone pattern. While it’s more often used on wood floors and accent walls, a tabletop benefits greatly from this decor statement.

Reclaimed Wood Tabletop

Reclaimed wood, again, is perfectly used to create wonderful rustic tabletops. Any rustic decor will benefit from this shabby chic look.

Wood Tile TV Accent Wall

Decorating around the TV can be as challenging as it is fun. We don’t want to make a TV the focal point of the room because that’s just boring. So instead, we can create an accent wall with wood tile that just looks great.

Wood Tile Ceiling

Let’s not forget the ceiling and keep in mind that it can benefit from a rustic design as well. Reclaimed wood tiling adds a lot of depth to this kitchen design without making the space look small.

Wood Tile and Open Shelving

If used together with open wooden shelving, accent wood tile walls extend the rustic decor statement to the white walls. It’s a lot more interesting option than leaving empty walls or using closed cabinets.

Wood Tile Vanity

A vanity is another place where we can use wood tile accents successfully. Just like the shower, a rustic accent wall makes the bathroom a lot more interesting.

Reclaimed Wood Mirror Frame

Another small rustic accent where wood tile can be used is the mirror frame. Reclaimed wood makes a natural pattern in this design.

Wood Block Light Fixture

And finally, even light fixtures can benefit from a wood tile look. These wood blocks used for the chandelier create architectural interest while making a rustic decor statement.
