You might be afraid of darker colours even more so with black. This is quite understandable since we crave light. We’re all obsessed with making our rooms appear much bigger than they are so we tend to stick to lighter colours. Black can be quite daunting but it has the ability to create beautiful and sophisticated spaces. Here are some ways for you to add black into your environment.


Feature walls in any colour have always been a great tool to transform a room but black looks so sophisticated. To accentuate this look go for a neutral tile that has some black in it. These tiles from Imola's Genus collection are perfect for this look.


Not ready to make your walls or floors black? Select a statement piece and make that black. This will draw the eye to that piece. This look can be created with Salgar's Compakt range. Make sure the other colours you use are simple or neutral so your space does not become too busy.

Selecting your colour scheme is important. Choose a set of colours that you will add to your dark sophisticated look and stick to it. Use different shades of your chosen colour to add dimension in your space.

Our X-Rock collection can help you achieve this look.


You don't have to go for a solid black tile if that may be too much for you. Choose a tile that is mostly black and has streaks of lighter colours in it. Add wood and solid neutral colours to accentuate the space. Dark marble is great when going for this look. Ask us about Portobello's wide range of products to suit this look.


Geometric tiles add pattern in a classy and understated fashion while adding depth and a unique look to your designs. Go for a solid geometric colour or one with two colours and create a magnificent space.


Take the plunge and install all black from top to bottom but open up the space by adding a light wooden-effect floor. Koala tiles are perfect to brighten up the look.
