How to Choose a Tile Colour

Home / Decorating Tips for Guelph homeowners / How to Choose a Tile Colour

The colour of your tile can really set the tone for your space, and choosing the right colour depends on a number of factors.

1) Size of the room

If you’re working with a small room, try going for a lighter colour of tile floor like cream and pastels, as this can make the room look larger. If your room is larger, you can experiment with dark tiles like rich chocolates and navy, especially if the large room has plenty of natural light.

2) Choose your tile type

Tiles come in a wide range of materials from stain-resistant, glazed ceramic to dense porcelain and beyond.

3) Check out a colour wheel

If you need some inspiration for matching your tile floor to your wall colour, consult a colour wheel. You can make a big statement by choosing colours that are on opposite sides of the colour wheel.

4) Consider textures

Evaluate your space and figure out if it’s a high traffic area. If it is, try a tile with a pattern so scuffs are less likely to show.
