Combining pastel and bold tiles


Although neutral tiling is a popular choice, this isn’t a style that suits every room. And if you want to add some personality and character to your home, choosing different tiling colours can be more effective. Pastel colours have long been popular, and these bring a relaxing feeling to any space, while bold tiles, with brighter colours, are a great way to create a tiling feature. Using these two tile colours together, could be a great option for your home, but how? And what are the different methods of combining pastel and bold tiles? 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 using bold and pastel coloured tiles together.

Different methods of combining pastel and bold tiles

If you want to combine the cool serenity of pastel with the brilliant vibrance of bold tiles, there are a number of different ways that are sure to secure the visual result you’re looking for. These different methods include:

  • Using bold tiles for the feature wall- create contrast in any room decorated with light coloured pastel tiles, by using bold, vibrant colours for the feature wall tiling. Using the same shade colour, such as pastel blue with royal or sky blue, can be a great option for rooms with a strong colour scheme. While switching colour completely can create a stunning contrast that really draws the eye.
  • Using bold wall tiling colours- in some rooms, such as the kitchen, the wall tiling is only minor, protecting the wall space between the lower and upper kitchen cabinets. In this circumstance, you could consider using pastel coloured floor tiles, with brilliant, bold wall tiles, for a stunning effect. The inverse can work well for hallways, were the floor tiles will need to be a darker, more practical colour. However, using too much of the bold tile colour in one space can be overwhelming, so it’s important to limit this technique to spaces where this could work more effectively.
