Choosing tiles takes time. With so many on offer it’s no wonder it can be hard to work out what the best type of tile is that would suit your individual needs. From matte tiles to gloss tiles, you can also get a few different finishes as well. If you’re in the market for tiles, here’s a few tips to help you pick the best tiles for your individual needs.
- Size and Shape – Your room will have a big influence on the shape and size of your tile choice. Larger rooms look great with larger tiles while small rooms offer great symmetry with smaller tiles. However, you don’t have to follow this. Choosing large rectangular tiles can help to create a larger feeling room. If you place them horizontal however it can feel as if the room is smaller. The size and shape you choose will dictate the final appearance and feel of the room so choose wisely.
- Choose Even Proportioned Tiles – When using more than one tile, try to keep the proportions even so they’ll work together well. Having a large tile with a small mosaic tile will work very well together. However, if you use two of the same size tiles you may find it looking odd. Always try to incorporate the different sizes to your advantages.
- Grout – Lastly try to find a grout that will help to highlight your tiles. Contrasting with opposite colours works well if you want to make the lines stand out. However, the best option would be to have matching grout to make your tiles stand out and be the feature point.
Choosing a tile is all about what you want your room to look like when finished. So have you found the perfect tile for your needs?
