Border tiles can be an effective and stylish tiling choice for a range of rooms in the home, including the hallway. But how can you be sure to make the right border tile choices? 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 the considerations for hallway border tiling.
What are the important considerations for hallway border tiling?
Border tiles can add style, character and contrast to the hallway wall or floor tiling, depending on how these are applied. To make sure you get the perfect results, you will need to consider a range of factors, including:
- Walls or floors- if both the walls and floor of your hallway are tiled, you will need to choose whether to use the border tiles for the floor or the wall, as both at once will probably be too overwhelming. Floor border tiles are a great way to edge the border of the tiles and create contrast in the very corners of the hallway space. Wall border tiles can be used vertically or horizontally to divide the wall tiling and create a tiling feature.
- Creating contrast– border tiles need to stand out from the other tiling in the space, and to do this there needs to be a strong amount of contrast. This can be created by using:
- border tiles with a different, but complementary, colour
- border tiles that are patterned to contrast with plain tiling elsewhere
- border tiles that are textured for a subtle visual contrast
- border tiles that are a different shape
- Design theme- border tiles need to match the overall design of the hallway so that you don’t lose the authenticity or strength of the visual design. For a Victorian hallway in a period property for example, you could use Victorian patterned tiles.
