Many of us might think that tiles can only be used in full squares or rectangles. But using similar looking thin strips of tiles can also help you build a masterpiece for your home. The designer for this wall has also incorporated a lighter colour tile to enhance the look.

6. Bricks

Bricks being one of the most commonly used material to create walls can be made to look creative by incorporating colour. By using dual tone bricks in your walls you can make them look amazing.

7. Polished slate

Another type of stone available is slate which people generally prefer to use for outdoors. By polishing slate and using it as one of the main walls you can not only beautify your home but it will also provide structural support.
