How To Make A Small Room Feel Bigger With Wall And Floor Tiles

Large tiles do make a room feel more spacious but only in a good-sized room. In a small bathroom they don’t work quite so well and will tend to swamp the room if they’re too large.

How To Make A Small Room Feel Bigger With Wall And Floor Tiles

It may be true that the best things come in small packages, but unfortunately it’s not that cut and dry when it comes to finding the best size of floor and wall tiles for a small room.

Large tiles do make a room feel more spacious but only in a good-sized room. In a small bathroom they don’t work quite so well and will tend to swamp the room if they’re too large, especially if there are lots of cuts to the tiles.

If there are fewer cuts and the grout colour matches the tile colour then the end result can be quite impressive.

On the other hand, small tiles such as mosaics, and their many grout lines, can make the overall effect look a little busy in a small room. However, this is not the case with our Hexagon Onice Mosaic. These delightful little hexagonal tiles would look just stunning adorning the walls of a small bathroom.

White is always a winner in a small space, we would suggest white metro tiles. Our Brick Blanco metro tiles are crisp and classic with a slightly uneven texture for an effect that bounces light around the bathroom and creates a bright and airy haven.

Additional tricks for a small room is to create the illusion of space by using mirrors and good lighting, expertly shown by #thediddads above. Increasing the lighting, particularly a mix of ceiling and wall lights to bounce light into all those corners and create a light and spacious bathing sanctuary.
