Have you ever solved a problem on which tiles to choose and how to plan for a bathroom? If all the tiles look the same, there are usually no difficulties but most often the problems arise when you need to mix multi-dimensional tiles, colours, shapes, and collections.Bathroom Tiles Cape Town
It‘s really possible to create a cosy bathroom combining even 3 or 4 different types of tiles – you only need to follow some rules.
1. Completely uniform dimensions, different colours / patterns
This is probably the simplest form of combining tiles. If you choose the tiles of the same size, you will never regret – they will look harmonious on their own. Most usually the same tiles are taken from the same collection and it‘s difficult to choose from another as if you glue the tiles at least with 2-millimetre mistakes it can look as if a hooked-hand-craftsman glued them.
Indeed, that‘s not compulsory to glue the same dimension tiles closely – the most important is that their threads coincide. For example, you can combine 20×50 cm tiles with 10×10 cm tiles. Threads will coincide, therefore, the common view will look harmonious.
When you choose the colours and the patterns I‘d advise you to combine the same geometrical shapes and the colours of the similar colour palette or vice versa. The tiles of contrasting colours also look well. Again it‘ll be easiest if you‘re going to choose the tiles from one collection for such a combination. You need good intuition to match completely different tiles.
2. Different dimensions, similar colours
If you want to combine hexagonal tiles with rectangular, square and metro style tiles, I would advise you to use a similar colour palette. The safest version is the choice of black/white and grey colours. The wooden tiles always fit perfectly. In that case, it is important to combine the proportions between the colours and the dimensions.
3. Calm / quiet + colourful / patterned
You can choose a large-format non-intensive colour tile for the background and for the focus walls you can choose brighter, more patterned and even mosaic tiles. You shouldn‘t overplay with colourful tiles. That‘s usually enough to glue one wall or the floor with them even though patterned tiles look perfect in a larger bathroom on the floor and one wall – most frequently behind a bath.
