Tips and Tricks on Pairing Tiles

Posted on: Dec 28, 2018, 6:35:38 PM

Tiles are becoming a popular choice in all areas of the home with the rise in technology creating more sophisticated coverings like wood-effect tiles and stone-effect tiles. The difficulty with all these options is how to make them work together. Because tiling a large space requires a sizable investment, it’s worth getting samples and experimenting how various tiles work together. These tips offer guidance on pairing tiles for the best look.

 

 

Create Balance

When selecting tiles for your space you should consider one small scale pattern and one large scale pattern. For example, if you have a busy pattern with small shapes on the floor then choose a large scale, simple tile for the wall. This prevents the tiles from competing with each other and leaves the space looking more uniform.

 

Assess your space

Larger rooms are able to cope with greater amounts of colour so don’t be afraid to use bold colours for the wall and pair them with a simple wood-effect tile on the floor. On the other hand, smaller spaces should use more neutral tones. Consider colour matching your tiles on the wall and floor to help your space look larger but introduce different textures to stop it from looking flat and uninviting.

 

Focus on Grout

Mix two solid coloured tiles of different shapes and let the grout lines make up the only patterns. Another great way for tying two different tiles together is to use the same grout. A light grey can look striking against different surfaces but create harmony between wall and floor.
