Use Tiles To Upgrade A Plain Mirror With Help From A TikTok DIY

Brittany Rae

TikTok is obsessed with tiling things.

It's easy to understand why. Not only does tile have the throwback look that Gen Z currently loves, it's an easy and accessible DIY that can be done on the cheap.

Today, we're looking at one of the most popular DIYs yet: the tile mirror.

Let's tile all the things!

This next-level DIY (with incredible editing and font work, for us graphic design nerds) was done by TikTok account @interhiors. They decided to take on the tile trend with a big pastel twist!

You'll need some of the standard DIY supplies, like tarp and painter's tape. You'll also need a mirror — one with a flat frame is best, but one with no frame at all works, too. You'll also need construction adhesive and tiles!

If you don't have access to tile spacers, don't worry.

Instead, you can cut up cardboard into strips! Make sure you pull it all from the same box so that the width is the same throughout.

Time to get tiling.

I'd recommend mapping your design out first before you start gluing things down. Once you're happy with your spacing, use your construction adhesive to adhere the tiles down to the mirror.

Instead of using standard grout, @interhiors used a special matcha-colored grout to match the mint tiles! I've never seen colored grout before. I'm kind of obsessed.

This pastel fantasy of a mirror is gorgeous, and I love the unique grout on it! This kind of style would look great in a boho-vibe home, don't you think?

But you can find similar items near you, don't worry! I found mint colored grout at Lowe's right here. As for tiles, Home Depot has you covered! Thank goodness for online shopping, guys.

The TikTok user said the DIY they did was "kinda cute."

Most people found that comment to be a big understatement — it's such a cool take on the tile trend! I also am not a big fan of tiling things, but this DIY has definitely changed my mind.

What do you think of the whole tile trend?

TikTok | @interhiors

It's very '90s and super nostalgic for me, but I can see why it's so appealing to aspiring DIYers and throwback lovers.

I'd totally try a tile DIY — would you?
