When it comes to your home interior, it’s often thought that you should stay away from dark interior colours altogether. After all, who wants to live in something that resembles an underground dungeon or a cave? But this isn’t always the case. In fact, rich, deep, dark colours can add a touch of sophistication, elegance and class to your home. And where better to show off than the hallway? The first area that guests will see when entering your home. Whether you have a contemporary or a traditional home, dark tiles in the hallway can be a great idea. But they aren’t always easy to pull off with style. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to using dark hallway tiles.

Patterned tiles

When using dark hallway tiles don’t go for a full black look. Instead, add in some pattern or texture to break up the darkness and make the space more visually interesting. Dark tiles with a little light patterning can work wonders for your hallway space, and add some intricate detail into your colour scheme.

If patterned tiles themselves wont match your choice of decor, why not add in a lighter tile for every third tile you lay. This will keep the style and pattern minimalist, but will still add that touch of light that will really make your dark tiling stand out.

Tiling layouts

In addition, dark hallway tiles can look incredible when used in a thoughtful tiling layout. Checkerboard tiling with darker and lighter shades of blue or grey can be extremely impressive, while the herringbone pattern for floor tiling is a timeless tiling layout.

Tiling layouts also work really well with unusual shaped tiles, including hexagons. For the honeycomb layout, you could use stunning darker tiles, set in a lighter grout. This would not only make the shape and layout of the tiles stand out, but would also add a hint of light to your tiling layout.

Colour options

Remember dark tiles don’t just have to be black or dark grey. Dark, rich tiles also include deep jades and greens, as well as navy blues and royal blues, purples and deep dark reds. So if you want to use dark hallway tiles, there are a range of colour options available.
