When it comes to choosing the right tiles for your space, the tile colour is one of the most important factors. But have you considered shaded tiling? There is often a natural shade variation in batches of tiles, but actual shaded tiling is designed with slightly different shades of the same colour, on the same tile. And this can be very effective in any space, but what are the benefits? 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 shaded tiling.

What are the benefits of shaded tiling?

Installing tiles that are shaded can be very beneficial for a wide range of spaces, bringing a number of advantages. These include:

  • Creating a natural tiling effect- with natural effect tiling, such as stone effect tiling, shaded tones can be one of the most important features for creating the realistic natural effect that is required. From darker to lighter shades, tiles that move from one shade to another can appear to reflect light just like natural stone or wood.
  • Creating a visual feature- using shaded tiles can help to create a visual feature in any space. Whether these are used for wall or floor tiles, the effect can draw the eye and direct attention to whichever area of the room you prefer. This can be very effective for kitchen feature walls, splashback areas, and even fireplace tiling. The subtle changes between shades allow the tiles to have a textured appearance in some light, or to create a small contrast that is more than enough to draw the eye and direct attention.
  • Range of colours and styles- if natural effect tiling wont be the right fit for your space, don’t worry. Shaded tiles are available in a range of colours and styles, including subway and metro tiles.
