What are the most effective feature tiling combinations?
There are a number of effective tiling combinations to create stunning, high quality tiling features. These incldue:
- Gloss and mat tiles- the finish of the tile can have a big impact on the visual effect this has. Tiles with a gloss finish will reflect the light, creating a vibrant, shiny effect. One the other hand, tiles with a mat finish can be seen as duller, but these can also have more texture and detail. By combining both gloss and mat finish tiles in the same space, you can create a tiling feature that has contrast and visual appeal in any room, in any design style.
- Dark and light tiles- black and white has long been a popular choice for anyone wanting to make a statement in design. And tiling is no different. However, while black and white tiling can be striking, you shouldn’t forget that it is the contrast between these two colours that provides the ultimate visual interest. As a result, why not experiment with different dark and light colours to create a unique and more original tiling feature in your space. You could choose two shades of the same colour for a subtle, or gradient effect, or you could combine two contrasting or complimentary colours together, depending on the effect you want to create.
- Plain and patterned- combing plain and patterned tiles is another option that can be very useful in both traditional and contemporary spaces, as long as you choose tiles and colours suitable for the design scheme. Floral and intricate patterned tiles can be a good fit for a traditional design scheme, while abstract or geometric patterns can be effective for contemporary spaces.
