Larger tiles can make a Small room seem Bigger:
A smaller room can appear larger with use of larger tiles as grout lines are less frequent with larger tile size. Size of up to 24 inches will work well in a small family room or in a very large bathroom.
Can Help a small Room Flow:
You can also help a small floor plan flow by using smaller size tiles. This is especially helpful if the spacing between the sink, toilet, and other features is compact. Smaller tiles will require less cuts, thus offering a more streamlined look.
Plank Tiles Add Depth and Texture:
Linear tiles, such as 9×36 inch and 6×37 inch planks, add depth to your room and come in a variety of styles. If you’re looking to add the brightness and warmth of a hardwood floor with the resiliency of tile, wood-look plank tiles are just what you need. Incorporate them in herringbone, corridor, and brick-joint patterns to give your floor a modern twist.
The Shape Will Impact a Room:
Instead of using traditional square tiles use unique patterns like diagonal style laying, which will make your room appear wider. For an extra-large room, you can also add a border of contrasting rectangular shaped tile to define the space you plan to use.
Selecting the color and design of the tile:
Small, dark coloured tiles tend to make a space feel small while large, light coloured tiles open up spaces and make them feel bigger.
Light, natural hues also act as a neutral backdrop for furniture and décor, and appeal to a larger segment of the market which is an important consideration when thinking about selling.
With this in mind, homeowners should opt for natural, light coloured tiles with Brushed cement, marble and stone effect porcelain are also currently much in vogue.
Selecting Bathroom tiles:
When choosing tiles for bathrooms specifically small size bathrooms use light colored bathroom tiles which will reflect light more than darker colors, creating an airy, spacious feel. Also using the same color wall and floor tiles can enhance the feeling of spaciousness.
Selecting Kitchen tiles:
Consider the color of your kitchen units and surroundings when selecting tiles for your kitchen. Colors like ivory, beige and brown as floor color options can contribute to creating an impression of warmth.
Keep the maintenance in Mind:
For bathrooms and kitchen walls it is recommended to use the ceramic wall tiles in matt or glossy finish as bathrooms are high moisture areas and the moisture and stain resistant property will keep them going for a longer period.
For flooring it is recommended to use polish or matt porcelain tiles due to their low water absorption property of less than 0.5% which provides strength, stain and scratch resistance to your tiles thereby saving you precious time, hassle free maintenance and durability.
