Using larger bathroom tiles can make the room appear bigger, especially in lighter natural tones. The science behind this theory is that lighter colours (such as white or cream), elongates the room look as they reflect the light. When these effects are combined with a glossy tile the effects are stunning.
Another top tip for creating space using bathroom tiles is using one colour for the wall tiles and floor tiles which help create the illusion of space. Co-ordinating floor tiles and wall tiles are also effective in making the room appear sleek rather than breaking it up. The Palace range is a perfect example of how floor and wall tiles can compliment each other to maximise the space in your bathroom.
It is also important to consider the finish of the bathroom tiles. Matt colours can absorb the light but if you are thinking about using glossy tiles to reflect the light in your bathroom be warned that they can become slippery when wet, so either use textured floor tiles or take precautions if using glossy tiles on the floor. You can still create the illusion of more space with glossy wall tiles.
Although there are many benefits of larger tiles making the bathroom appear larger, there are some occasions when bigger is not always better. For example, darker colours and big statement tiles can sometimes be overbearing on smaller bathrooms so in this instance you can add a flash of statement, just enough to have impact but keeping the space. If you would like to use colour but have a small bathroom, our Decko bathroom tiles help you add a splash of colour whilst keeping the rest of the room light and airy.
