Bringing a touch of style into the home with floor and wall tiles can be achieved in a variety of ways. You can transform your floors into eye-catching statement pieces, or have them blend seamlessly with their surroundings.
Floor tiles can be as lavish or understated as you like, paving the way for limitless opportunities to explore.
But when it comes to certain high-traffic areas of the home, some tiles are simply unbeatable for bringing the whole space together. If struggling for inspiration when going about your next interior improvement project, here are simple yet effective ideas to consider:
In the Kitchen
Tiles can be used to great effect in the kitchen, whether your goal is to create a rustic farmhouse feel or luxurious modern look. For example, rustic floor tiles with a porcelain or natural stone effect immediately evoke a sense of country living.
Elsewhere, you could install tiles with a classic wood effect to create a quintessential Scandinavian vibe; the beauty of wood effect tiles is their seamless compatibility with all other types of kitchen décor.
This wood effect can be taken a step further with the colours of deep oaks and polished hardwood, creating a warm, earthy and sophisticated feel for the entire kitchen with extensive compatibility.
In the Bathroom
Tiles tend to be the dominant feature in a bathroom, so it is important to go with something that matches its surroundings. For example, a bathroom decorated predominantly in neutral tones can be complimented with a pale green or grey floor.
Black and white tiles never look out of place in the bathroom when used independently or in composition with one another. On that note, creating a pattern using almost any preferred combination of colours can work wonders on a bathroom floor.
Textured surfaces can be particularly at home in the bathroom for both for their visual appeal and their non-slip characteristics. You must always factor health and safety into consideration before choosing which tiles to install in your bathroom.
In the Hallway
The hallway tends to be the first thing people see when they walk into your home; you therefore have the option of going with something understated or eye-catching depending on your preferred first impression.
Classic wood effect tiles never fail to look fantastic in hallways, as do tiles with a natural stone effect. Understated tones like grey, brown and even black generally work well as does the classic chequer board pattern.
Experimenting with different tile sizes and configurations can bring a sense of added length, width or even height to your hallways. A brighter colour is usually a preferred option for smaller hallways, which may look and feel even more compact with a darker colour scheme.
