While traditional and contemporary tiles can be a stunning addition to the respective properties, there is another aspect to consider. Retro tiling is a big part of retro design, and this involves taking a space and using specific design features to mirror a period of the past. Retro tiling does not have to be fully accurate, and different time frames can be molded together for stunning results. But what are the tiling options for a retro finish? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling professionals. We stock tiles in a range of styles and designs, that are perfect for a variety of homes. And this is our guide to everything you should know about retro tiling.
What are the different tiling options for a retro result?
There are a number of different options when it comes to tiling for a retro result. These include:
- Use bold features- bright patterns, and contrasting colours can be a serious contender for any retro design space. Confine these to just one feature wall for the best results, but don’t be afraid to choose vibrant patterns that create a contrast with the rest of your space. Geometric patterns can be very effective as well as floral designs, depending on the time period you are aiming to celebrate.
- Black and white- black and white tiling might be a good contemporary option but this has been used for many years. As a result, when paired with other retro features and furnishings, black and white tiling can be a good addition to any retro room. Why not consider checkerboard floor tiling for a stunning retro effect?
- Floral patterned tiles- nothing is more retro than some floral patterned tiles and when used in small areas, like splashbacks or feature walls, this can help to create a striking retro result.
