Tips for choosing tiles

Follow these tips to make the right choice when choosing tiles for your spaces:

Choosing sizes

For small rooms, choose elongated formats, such as 30×90, as they help to balance the space.

If tiled in horizontal, small rooms look lengthened.

If tiled in vertical, the corridor effect is softened. If we add a border tile also in vertical position, the room will look shorter.

Colour power

For small spaces, choose light nuances like white, beige and grey. Also, if a tile and a mosaic – both in light nuances – are combined, we will distinguish different areas in a room and take the most of its volume.

In oblong rooms, we can reduce the space appearance using glass and ceramic tiles in vertical position. If we additionally use contrasting colours, the effect will be even stronger.

In rooms with high ceilings, we can create a shortening effect by tiling the highest row of the wall with glass tiles or mosaics in a dark colour in combination with the ceiling colour.
