Creating a tiling feature is a great way to add personality and character to any room. From tiling layouts, to patterned tiles and textured tiles, there are a variety of different ways to create a tiling feature that will really stand out and create a focal point. One popular method is to use alternating coloured tiles. But is this effective? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. And we are always on hand to provide expert advice, unique to your individual requirements and circumstances. As a result, we have produced this guide to using alternating tile colours.

Using alternating tile colours

Using alternating tile colours can allow you to create a tiling feature that both draws attention, and looks great. But there are a number of ways to create a striking effect using this method. These include:

  • Monochrome tiling- No two shades are as striking, or as effective, as black and white used together. Alternating black and white tiling is also known as the checkerboard tiling pattern, or the chessboard, for obvious reasons. Monochrome alternating tiling can be effective for any room, from kitchen splash-backs to bathroom floors.
  • Complimentary colours- using two complementary colours together, or better yet, two shades of the same colour, is a more subtle way to use alternating tile colours. This can look striking in any home, and is very effective for contemporary, and traditional styles and design choices.
  • Contrasting colours- using contrasting colours is a high risk strategy for any space. Colours that contrast with one another, when used together, can be chaotic and off-putting. But for some contemporary kitchens, it can be very effective. Especially if you are aiming for an ultra-modern twist to your tiling.
