Many kitchens and bathrooms are tiled with plain white or cream tiles to create a blank canvas for the space. And a gleaming white space, is still traditionally thought of as clean and sterile, two qualities every kitchen or bathroom should possess. But that doesn’t mean your homes should feel clinical or lack personality. In fact, adding character to the space is exactly how you can make your home your own. And this can be achieved by using darker tiles. But what are the important location considerations for dark tiles? And how can you make sure these are effective?
What are the important location considerations for dark tiles?
Dark tiles can add character and personality to your space. While also bringing a sense of elegance and sophistication. But too may dark tiles, or colours in general, can make your space full dull and dingy. So it’s important to get the balance just right. This should include:
- Using contrast- use dark tiles in places alongside white tiles or light tiles. This will add visual contrast and interest to the space, without making your dark tiles too overwhelming.
- Creating a feature- dark tiles can be used to create a feature in your room. In this instance, this means that the majority of your tiling will not be dark, but that a focal point like a splash-back area or a feature wall will be. This will draw attention and make your tiling stand out.
- Dramatic effect- using dark tiles to create a dramatic effect can be stunning. These could pair with your dark worktops in the kitchen to make a real statement. Or they could contrast with your white kitchen suite to add more depth to your room.
