Floor tile is available in various styles and colors. Pairing tiles together is now easier. Thanks to the many options amiable. Mixing and matching tiles can create a beautiful, cohesive design. But what are the rules to follow to ensure that the tiles complement the existing aesthetic of a room?
Pairing Floor Tiles Together
To create a cohesive design, you need to perfectly mix and match tiles according to their materials. For instance, you can choose a white marble throughout your bedroom. As you keep the materials consistent, you are keeping a clear aesthetic. In your kitchen, you can use different kitchen tile pairings for your backsplash. You can opt for white ceramic tiles, like white subway tile, a white square mosaic, and spring ceramic mosaic tile.
You can still keep the materials consistent even if you change the look of the tiles. The combination will still create a unique design. For instance, you can mix more than one type of stone. Choose to combine two patterns and two kinds of marble tile. They are perfect together as long as their shapes and shades are the same.
Mix Up Different Materials
It’s easy to mix and match different styles of the same materials. What’s more challenging here is if you have different tile materials, colors, and finishes. Thankfully, they can still provide wonderful results. You can pair marble with stainless steel for instance. Or you can unite porcelain and glass tiles. Another way to mix different materials together is to use hexagon mosaic tiles and glass subway tiles. This will create a stunning coastal effect in your bathroom. You can also pair glossy round tiles, marble wall tiles, and hexagon floor tiles. The effect is chic and modern.
Evaluate the Existing Color
Before you even buy tile flooring, make sure to evaluate the existing color and design style of the room. Evaluate the colors of the walls, furniture, and accessories. Take note of the patterns or textures that are present.
