These three tile design choices can create the illusion of a much larger space.
1. Stick with the same colour tile
When selecting a tile for your ‘small’ space, whether it be a powder room, laundry or balcony, select one colour and apply it to the entire space. Laying the same colour tile on floor and walls creates a flow within the room and, in turn, will make for a more spacious feel.
2. Choose a larger sized format tile
Along with the colour, the size of the tile is just as important. Once you have selected your desired colour, it is then time to select a size. Keep in mind when selecting the size to go for a larger size tile such as a 600×600. This will allow for less grout joints and the size of the tile will reflect on the size of the room.
One bonus of large format tiles is that they create a sense of luxury and grand ambiance.
3. Opt for a similar colour grout to your tile choice
After you have selected your perfect tile, it is time for grout selection. Choosing a contrasting grout colour to your tile will create emphasis on the grout lines and therefore make the space feel choppy and confined. If the grout and tiles are of similar or the same tone it will enhance the spacious impression you are looking for.
That may have been a lot to take in.
