Go neutral or go bold: selecting the right ceramic tiles for your project

Go neutral or go bold: selecting the right ceramic tiles for your project

When it comes to porcelain or ceramic tiles there is an extensive selection available, spanning neutral palettes through to pastel shades, solid bold colours and patterns, and everything in between.

White ceramic tiles for a timeless aesthetic

Crisp white ceramic tiles are stylish, sleek and durable and make the perfect backdrop to showcase all manner of different decorative and furnishing styles. Versatile and timeless, white porcelain or ceramic tiles can work with any style and lend a clean and bright feel to both commercial and residential spaces.

Neutral stone, porcelain or ceramic tiles for pared-down chic

For a minimal and contemporary look in a residential property, large format neutral ceramic tiles or stone surfaces can lend a luxurious and sophisticated feel. Shades of cream, white, tan, grey and stone are understated and extremely versatile, working beautifully as a neutral canvas to allow other design features to make the statement.

Porcelain or ceramic tiles in neutral shades are also useful for creating a subtle sense of calm, order and harmony in commercial areas such as offices, retail spaces and hotel lobbies.

Between neutral and bold

Spanning the spectrum, between bold colours and entirely neutral hues, are porcelain wood-effect tiles or hexagonal ceramic tiles. In each case a neutral-coloured tile delivers a striking, yet low-key, aesthetic through pattern or tile shape – perfect if you don't want plain ceramic tiles but are overwhelmed by busy patterns or bright colours.

Coloured ceramic tiles for a bold look

Porcelain or ceramic tiles in bold solid colours can be utilised to make a strong, intense visual statement when used in either a commercial or residential environment.

Vibrant and strongly colourful porcelain or ceramic tiles can also be used in isolation alongside neutrals to highlight and delineate spaces which can be especially useful in busy commercial areas, such as airports, hospitals, stations, museums, galleries, hotels or retail environments and can also be used to tie in with corporate colours.

Using mosaic tiles

With a plethora of different colours and surface textures, mosaic tiles on a mesh backing formed from small square, circular or hexagonal porcelain or ceramic tiles, deliver visual appeal as well as tactility, adding a sense of opulence.

Colourful iridescent glass mosaic tiles can be utilised to add shimmering sparkle in domestic or commercial spaces – enhancing anything from bathrooms and kitchens to swimming pools, health spas, bars and restaurants. A bespoke mosaic design service means that clients can add intricate tile patterns, incorporating logos or design motifs, to their surface installations.
