So recently we produced a blog all about using those white square tiles, so now its only fair to show you the other side of the coin. Using black square tiles. Black is a tile colour that isn’t anywhere near as popular as white. But it can be dramatic, stylish, sophisticated and visually interesting. When the tiles are used in the right way. And, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to using black square tiles.

Feature walls

For bathrooms and kitchens, small format black square tiles can be perfect for creating splash back areas and feature walls. However, black tiles can absorb some of the light in the room, so in a small space, it is best not to overdo the use of dark colours. Instead, for small kitchens or bathrooms, you could mix and max your black tiles with a lighter colour to add character and style. Or go for a contemporary twist on checkerboard tiling.

For dark coloured tiles, especially black, it’s always best to go for a tile with a glossy finish. As a glossy surface will reflect more of the light, and counter the absorption from the dark colour.

Floor tiles

Black tiles can make a stunning choice for floor tiles. From large format tiles, to standard tiles, black tiles can be used effectively across the floor of almost any kitchen or bathroom. Especially when paired with light coloured fittings. These tiles can bring something new and unique to your home and add visual interest to your room. However, it’s probably best to not go for a full black floor in a small room without lots of natural light. This is because the black tiles will absorb light and make your room seem smaller.
