When you are decorating your home, you no doubt put a lot of thought into the design decisions you make. And when it comes to tiling, this is no different. Choosing the right tiles for your kitchen, bathroom, hallway or conservatory is all about balancing design, style and practicality. Your tiles need to look the part, but they also need to be functional and practical too. That’s why mixing and matching different types of tiles can be a great option. From mixing patterned tiles with plain tiles, or plain tiles and textured tiles, there is a lot more scope for creativity and personality. But one of the best combinations, involves both gloss tiles, and matt tiles. As a result, here at Tiles 2 Go, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about combining gloss tiles with matt tiles.
Combining gloss tiles with matt tiles
So, how can these two different types of tile be combined effectively? Well, there are a number of ways to make the most out of these two types of tile, including:
- Creating a glossy feature area- whether its a small splashback or a full feature wall, using matt tiles for your background, and glossy tiles for your visual feature can be very effective. You could also change the colour of the tiles to create more interest, and this can help you create stylish room with a dual colour scheme.
- Alternating wall tiles- alternating between a gloss tile and a matt tile can be an interesting and fun way to tile your kitchen or bathroom walls. However, we wouldn’t suggest this for the kitchen or bathroom floor, as glossy tiles can be slippery when wet.
- Gloss border tiles- in a space with matt tiles, adding some gloss can help to bring a different visual effect to the space, adding depth and interest. And as such, using glossy border tiles could be the perfect option.
