When and why should you choose small tiles

Small tiles can be very effective in a number of locations and positions. These include:

  • Shower enclosures- small tiles suit shower enclosures as they tend to be fairly small spaces in comparison with the rest of the room. The small tiles can create a feature within the shower enclosure that can complement or contrast with the larger tiles used elsewhere in the bathroom. And this creates a stylish and attractive focal point. In addition, because small tiles increase the amount of grout lines, this creates more grip and friction in the wet environment that could otherwise lead to slips and trips. So small tiles in a shower enclosure are also practical.
  • Splashbacks- the space between the kitchen work-surfaces and the cabinets above, or the wall space above the sink, is often known as the splashback. This space can become an attractive visual feature, if you use stylish small format tiles in this space. The small tiles will contrast with the rest of the room, and draw attention to the space. Subway tiles, or small mosaic tiles can both be equally effective.
  • Small bathrooms- small tiles are effective in small spaces, so in an ensuite, or cloakroom bathroom, using small tiles can really help to create the stylish space you are aiming for.
