As land and property become heavier on our pockets, the growing trend towards smaller homes has become apparent. Be it an apartment or a house, spaces are shrinking – but this doesn’t mean our lifestyles need to! With a few tips and tricks, even the smallest of spaces can look larger, bringing a feeling of spaciousness where it is needed.
Floor tiles bringa handsome, easy-to-maintain surface to floors in rooms both large and small. Whether vinyl, ceramic or cut stone, tiles can define the texture of a room, emphasizing the cool crispness or soft warmth of your overall decor. The wide variety of styles and sizes available can make choosing the right tile challenging. Follow handy tips to make a choice you will love.
With the possible exception of 24-inch tiles, professionals generally agree that large tiles convey a sense of greater space. Small tiles and increased grout lines can create a floor that looks busy or fussy. To increase the visual expanse of a floor, designers suggest using grout that is the same or nearly the same colour as the tile.
While many designers assert that light colours convey a sense of greater space than darkertones, the impact of floor colour will depend on colours used in the room. One can experiment with colours to see what works best in the overall decorating scheme. Like an accent wall in a vivid colour, a strong contrast in colour and tone between the floor and the room can make space seem constricted or cramped. A possible compromise might be using small coloured accent tiles at the corner junctions of neutral ones. Remember, the larger the tile, the longer the distance the eye travels from one accent to the next.
Mixing square and rectangular tiles in the same colour and texture provides subtle visual variety without drastically affecting the sense of space. Constructing a seemingly random pattern of various tile sizes takes some skill, but will expand visual space more effectively than creating borders or edgings. You may wish to seek professional help in mixing sizes, so that all tiles are of the same thickness or calibre.
One of the most effective strategies for using large tiles in small spaces is to lay them diagonally. A diamond pattern, rather than a checkerboard, prevents the viewer from measuring space in tiles down vs. tiles across. The only limit to diagonal patterns is a room with many alcoves, doorways or other interruptions of wall space. A room with frequently interrupted wall space presents many challenges to laying tiles diagonally.
What becomes imperative is to choose the right colour and size of the tile. SOMANY CERAMICS offer a wide variety of floor tiles, to ensure that you build your dream home with no compromise.Read More »
