From patterned tiles, to shaped tiles, we have something to suit every room, in every home. And as a result, we have produced this guide to choosing tiling colours.

Choosing tiling colours

When choosing a colour scheme for a new room, it’s best to stick with up to two colours. But the colours you choose will depend on a range of factors, including:

  • the purpose of the room
  • the style you want to achieve

The purpose of the room

If you are creating a bathroom, the colours you will be looking to use to tile the room, can be quite different to those used in the kitchen. For bathrooms, in any style, you will probably be looking at a range of:

  • blue colours leading to greys
  • neutral colours like beige and cream
  • monochrome

While for kitchens, you could use any of the above tiling colours, or a range of more vibrant colours, depending on your choice of cabinet colour and style. For example:

  • red tiles can be effective in a contemporary kitchen
  • while orange tiles can be perfect for a traditional or country kitchen

The style you want to achieve

It not just the room itself that determines the colours you should choose. It’s also the style you want to achieve. Contemporary tiling and traditional tiling can make use of different colours, in different rooms. While monocrome tiling can be used across any room, in any style, other colours you can choose from will differ. In general:

  • for traditional rooms stick to monochrome and neutral tiles. These will have a subtle effect on the style of the room, and help keep it authentic
  • for contemporary rooms consider the colours of the furnishings, and choose tiles that compliment these.
