What are the advantages of contrast in wall tiling? 

There are a number of advantages and benefits to using and creating contrast in wall tiling projects. These include:

  • Creating tiling features
  • Adding visual interest
  • Making a space feel larger

Using contrast to create wall tiling features

Contrasting tiles can help to create stunning feature walls in your property. From dramatic hallway tiling to splash-back tiling in the kitchen and bathroom, and feature walls in the living room, it is contrast that will allow this feature to really stand out. The feature tiles can contrast from the rest of the room or you can use contrast within the feature tiling piece to create a stunning visual effect.

Using contrast to add visual interest

If you don’t want to create a feature wall or area, you could rely on contrast to add visual interest to your space in general. By using contrasting wall tiling such as a contrasting line of border tiles, or alternating tile colours, you can make sure that even the plainest rooms or spaces have visual interest and more character.

Using contrasting well-tiling to make a space feel larger

Combining the right tile shape and size with the right colours, and adding contrast, can allow you to make a small space feel visually larger. This is because the contrasting tiles can draw the eye further along the wall or further up the wall, to create a larger sense of space emphasizing the very corners of the room instead of the centre.
