Factors to Consider when Choosing your Designer Tiles | Toronto

When it comes to deciding what type of tile to install in your home, sometimes it may be hard to choose the perfect fit to match the overall look of your house. With all the different tiles available in the market, it can be hard to start because each type of style offers unique benefits. Here are some guidelines and benefits to make things easier for you when re-decorating your home with new floor tiles.


Start by analyzing your home décor and decide if the style that you currently have is the one that you want to pursue. If it is not, a wonderful way to get inspired with new ideas is to turn to décor magazines and online interior decoration websites.


It’s important to take the different sizes, shapes and materials available for tiles into account when choosing the right ones for your space. Usually, smaller tiles are used in both the kitchen and bathrooms. Larger tiles are normally installed in living rooms and larger spaces. Typically, smaller tiles work best in smaller rooms and bigger tiles are more suitable for larger rooms.


In the previous step, we discussed the tile size, but the size of the room itself is just as important. Large tiles make a room feel bigger and airier. The benefit of installing tiles in a bigger room is that you can get creative and use different size and shapes without cluttering it. Smaller rooms have the opposite effect, so you need to be careful because usually you want the room to appear bigger and welcoming. In a small room, light coloured tiles will make the smaller space feel larger.


Colours in a room can greatly impact people’s moods. That’s why when choosing the tiles you want to decorate your home with, you must consider the feel you want to achieve in your room. A serene and relaxing atmosphere or happier and warmer feeling is easy to achieve with different colours and tiles. For example, black tiles make a huge statement in a room as it portrays power and sophistication. Orange on the other hand is an energizing colour, and is considered warm and friendly. This colour is really versatile and can work with any room, but works especially well in the hallway where it gives guest a warm and positive welcome.


Most people never think about the grout when considering tiles. However, the grout gives a contrasting effect with the tile that you implement in your room. A contrasting grout will emphasize the lines and design of a tile so be sure to choose the right colour for your grout.


The amount of natural light in a room can also affect a person’s mood. The sun’s rays, filled with warmth and vitamin D make you feel positive. So, it’s natural that bright rooms make us feel happier, more alive and vibrant. If this is the feeling you are going for, then consider a gloss tile as this will suit a dark space and it reflects more light, as does a lighter colour.
