Home Office Bar RefreshPosted May 12, 2020

With everyone spending more time at their home offices, it is easy to grow tired of the way it looks and want a little change of scenery. Taking on a simple tile refresh is an affordable way to change things up in an afternoon.
Last year, I shared our home office makeover with you. We added tile to what was previously carpeted, and the gorgeous tile floors completely transformed the space.
We chose the Teakwood field tile for the wood-look that is easy to clean and hides dirt but adds the sophistication we wanted in our home office.
For the next stage of the office remodel, I tiled the bar backsplash. Since my husband and I share the office, we opted for something slightly masculine. This Taj Mahive mosaic tile is a fun addition to the space.
ProTip: mosaics are a great option for smaller backsplashes to add variety and also makes it super easy to install.
It works well with the dark wood cabinets and contrasts nicely with the lighter, butcher-block countertops.
The tile also works well with the floor and adds lots of great texture to the space. The more rounded shape brings some softness to the room and brings in light as the glass mosaic illuminates the space.
Backsplashes are a fairly easy tile project that make a huge difference in any space.
If you have never tiled before, a backsplash is a perfect project to try before attempting tile projects like floors. They are generally smaller areas and less overwhelming.
For our kitchen and laundry rooms, I used classic, white subway tile for the backsplash, so this moody, dark mosaic was a fun change in our home.
If you’re looking for a great how-to for tiled flooring you can get all the details from our home office makeover.
