Best Tile for a Dark Room

kitchen_task_lightingInstalling home tiles in your room creates harmony between the walls and the floor hence providing an attractive modern appearance. It is important that you buy the right type of home tiles in terms of material, texture, size and colour, as all these factors greatly influence the general appearance. For a dark room especially, you need to make a proper decision that will make it brighter and warmer.

Size

Larger home tiles are better in a dark room as compared to smaller tiles as they tend to enlarge the space. You do not want to have a dark room that looks small and confined, as this may be uncomfortable for the inhabitants. Using many small home tiles makes the floor look extremely busy hence smaller. Therefore, install large tiles using grout lines of a similar color in between them to create a bigger visual display.

Color

Experiment with tiles colors to find one that complements the dark colors. It is not a given that a brighter floor in a dark room will provide more light and make it brighter; in fact, a great contrast between the wall and floor colors may disrupt the harmony and make it look busier. Get advice from a home tiles expert on which color and hue is the best to achieve the desired results in your dark room.

Orientation

How you lay the tiles on the floor will ultimately affect the way light falls on the floor thus creating a sense of space and brightness for your home or bathroom design. Arranging them in a diagonal manner enhances the visual aspects of space and light, but is highly dependent on the frequency of interruption by the walls and windows. Whatever choice of home tiles you make, ensure that you create a lively mood regardless of the darkness of the room.
