Coordinate with Your Decor

  • To ensure a harmonious look, use color samples of the tiles you’re considering and compare them with the existing decorations and wall colors in the room. This step ensures that your chosen tile colors complement the overall color scheme and decor style.

Emphasize with Plain or Multi-color Tiles

  • Your choice of tile colors can either create a subtle backdrop or become the focal point of the room. If you want the focus to be on your accent furniture or room decorations, opt for plain matching tiles that provide a neutral canvas. On the other hand, if you desire a bold, eye-catching floor, multi-color tiles can be an exciting choice to make your flooring the center of attention.

Consider Lighting

  • Colors can appear differently under various lighting conditions. To accurately assess how your chosen tile color will look in your room, bring a sample tile into the space to observe how it interacts with your room’s lighting. Natural light, artificial lighting, and even the time of day can influence how the color is perceived.

Align with Interior Design Style

  • The colors you select should harmonize with the overall style of your interior design. For a modern, minimalist look, black and white color schemes work exceptionally well. These colors provide a sleek and contemporary appearance. In contrast, terracotta and earthy tones are better suited for older homes, rustic settings, or spaces with a traditional ambiance.

By following these tips, you can make an informed decision when choosing tile colors for your floors. The right tile color selection will not only enhance the beauty of your space but also ensure that it seamlessly integrates with your room’s decor and lighting, creating a cohesive and visually appealing environment.
