How to choose the right floor tiles

Choosing the right floor tiles for your room is an important part of your renovation or decoration project, and there are a number of stages that people can overlook. Floor tiles have an important role in the lighting, the style and the feel of a room, and not taking the time to plan can cost you money in the long run. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we know quite a lot about this process, so here are some helpful tips.


Of course, co-ordinating your floor tiles with the wall tiles is an obvious decision, but what about the rest of the equipment and fittings within the room? Floor tiles can be chosen to match or enhance the finish of cupboards or worktops in bathrooms and kitchens, and can really help give that top quality finish we all want within our homes.

Practically, the colour of floor tiles can be an issue to consider. Do you really want cream, or light tiles in your conservatory where muddy boots or pets are likely to walk through regularly?

Room lighting

The lighting within the room is imperative to choosing the perfect floor tiles. Dark floor tiles in a room with low levels of natural light can make the room feel smaller and darker than it actually is. In reality, you need some light and partially reflective tiles in a room of this description to really make it feel more light, open and airy.

Pattern and size

Floor tiles are generally fixed via standard fixing or staggered fixing, and choosing the right fixing to get the effect you want, is an important personal decision when thinking about your floor tiles. Fewer grout lines between tiles can give the impression that there is more space in an area, so if your area is small, large size tiles could work well for you.
