When it comes to tiling your home, from the kitchen, to the bathroom, or the conservatory to the hallway, it is essential that you choose the right tiles for your style. And many homeowners opt only for tiles in light, neutral colours. While this can be an effective tile option for any room, it is also quite plain. So if you want to inject some character and personality into your rooms, you might want to make more personal tiling choices. Dark colours, for example, can be highly effective when used in the right places, and in the right way. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. And we work with homeowners and property developers to help them make the right tiling choices. As a result, we have produced this guide to the impact of dark tiles.
The impact of dark tiles
Dark tiles can create a range of effects or moods in a room. These include:
- Calm and relaxing- think deep blues or greens, or even greys. These colours can be very peaceful and help create a calm environment.
- Demanding and bold- think of deep reds and purples. These deep, dark colours can demand attention, and make an impressive feature. But be careful they are not too overpowering.
- Dramatic- black tiles are probably the best example of a tile that can be used to create a dramatic effect. This works especially well if you pair the black tiles with a contrasting light colour, even white. The contrast adds to the dramatic influence of the tiles.
Floor and wall tiles
Floor tiles are probably the most popular installation position for dark tiles, with dark wall tiles being used more as a feature, instead of a background. Dark floor tiles, including dark grey, black, and dark purple can be incredibly effective. Especially when used with pale wall tiles.
If you only have a small room, you should consider using glossy tiles to reflect the light, otherwise the dark tiles can make the space feel smaller.
