Choosing tiles that will stand out and grab attention is one of the key aims when creating a feature wall in any space, the bathroom, kitchen, living room or hallway. But using alternating tiling colours can be just as effective. But what should you consider when using alternating colours for your feature wall tiling? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about using alternating tile colours effectively.
Using alternating colours for your feature wall tiling
There are a number of different ways to alternate the colour of your feature wall tiles effectively. These include:
- Alternating row colours- Using alternating row colours can create an interesting and effective stripey design. Using contrasting tiles colours, like black and white, can even have a dramatic visual impact. However it is important to make sure that this fits with the design of the rest of the space, and that your feature wall is just one small area. Otherwise the effect could be overwhelming. For a more subtle and serious approach, you could simply alternate between two shades of the same colour. Designing horizontal stripes in this way will draw the eye wider to the different points of the room, and make your space feel larger.
- Alternating tile colour- depending on your tiling layout, you could opt to alternate each tile colour in sequence. This can be very effective for square grid and diagonal tiling, and when using black and white, is often called checkerboard tiling. However, this is not so effective for the brick bond tiling layout, or other popular designs like the herringbone pattern.
- Border tiles- border tiles of an alternative colour can intersect your feature wall either as a horizontal border, or a vertical one. Either way, this can create just one stripe that is sure to draw attention and have maximum visual impact.
