Stunning features or neutral balance, floor tiles can set the tone of your room. Whether you are home owner or a property developer, flooring is integral to your renovation or decoration project. Consequently, choosing the perfect floor tile is not as simple as it may seem. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we know just how important it is to get your finish perfect. This is our guide to choosing the perfect floor tile.

Colour

Tile colour can make or break the design of your room overall. Co-ordinating your floor tiles with the rest of the room is one of the first decisions to be made. Do you want your tiles to contrast, or complement your colour scheme? A contrasting floor tile can draw the eye and create a stunning feature. In contrast, a complementary floor tile can create a more neutral room.

In addition, there are practical considerations regarding colour. For example, in a room that is likely to get muddy or dirty, such as a conservatory or kitchen, you may want a darker tile.

Lighting

Natural and artificial light levels in the room can affect the tile choices you make. A light an airy bathroom, for example, can support a blend of dark and light floor tiles. On the other hand, a bathroom with a lack of light, can feel claustrophobic when decorated using dark floor tiles. Light coloured tiles are excellent at reflecting light, making more use of what little natural light may be available.

Size

Large or small, floor tiles can work well in a range of settings and sizes. Fewer grout lines between larger tiles can make a small space feel larger and less cluttered. This is perfect for small bathrooms and kitchens. In contrast, smaller floor tiles can be used to create interesting patterns and make your room stand out.
