Blue and white is a classic color combination that can be perfect for both contemporary and traditional spaces. While these two colours can evoke a sense of coastal or nautical style, these two colours work well together even without this inclination, and a range of blue shades can be used to good effect with white. So what should you consider when choosing tiles for a blue and white kitchen or bathroom? And how can you be sure to get the perfect result?
What are the important considerations when choosing tiles for a blue and white kitchen or bathroom?
There are a number of different style and design options to take into account when selecting tiles for a blue and white space. These considerations include:
- Choosing the shade of blue- any shade of blue from pale pastel or sky blue, to deep or royal blue, can be paired well with white. As such your first consideration should be the shade of blue you are opting for. This can make a significant difference to the overall style of the room, and the colour. If blue tiles will be your main floor or wall covering, it’s important to note that darker shades will not reflect as much light and can make a smaller kitchen or bathroom look quite dark, despite the contrast of the white.
- The shape of the tiles- additionally, you will need to consider the shape of the tiles themselves. From subway tiles to hexagonal tiles there are a wide range of options available. Square and grid tiling can also be highly effective for both floor and wall tiling options.
- Combining blue and white- finally you will need to consider how to combine the blue and white colours effectively. Using a white grout colour for blue subway tiles, or for blue hexagonal tiles can really help to accentuate the layout and the shape of the tiles, with the white grout creating effective contrast. Alternatively you could alternate between blue and white tiles for a checkerboard tiling style.
