Combining patterned and plain tiles

To create a dramatic tiling feature in your kitchen or bathroom, you will need to choose the right type of tiles. A feature wall, or a splash-back, should stand out from the rest of the room, even contrasting with the background colours to really be emphasized. One way to do this is to combine plain tiles, with patterned tiles, in an effective way. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. And we help homeowners and property developers choose the right tiles for their projects, day in day out. So, we have produced this guide to combining patterned and plain tiles successfully.

Creating tiling features

To really get the best effect from any tiling combination, the tiles you choose need to be different from one another, to draw attention, but also share similar features. For example:

  • you could use the exact same tiles, just in two different colour
  • you could combine a plain tile with a tile of the same colour, but with a different texture
  • you could use a plain tile, combined with a patterned tile

What are the important considerations for combining patterned and plain tiles?

So to combine patterned and pain tiles effectively, what should you consider? Well, there are a number of things to take into account, including:

  • The predominant colour- the tiles should share a similar colour, to tie the patterned tiles into the rest of the room. This will still allow the patterned tiles to stand out, but they wont be overwhelmingly different from the rest of the room.
  • The style- choosing tile combinations that emphasize the design or style of the room you are creating is a great idea. So if your room is traditional, choose tiles and patterned tiles that are also traditional. For contemporary spaces, opt for more geometric or abstract patterns.
