Neutral room schemes with tiles
The soft and soothing hues of a neutral colour scheme make any room look timeless and sophisticated. From a rich brown to a pale grey, and everything in between, a neutral scheme is so versatile, and is easy to pair with accessories, furniture and floor and wall tiles. Whether a room is modern or classic, lofty or compact, a neutral palette can transform it into a serene space. The biggest advantage being that it can be adapted to any style, from traditional to country to contemporary.
Whereas a colourful room might compete with natural light, a neutral scheme will reflect light and so create a spacious and airy feel to any room. It provides the perfect backdrop for an interesting focal point such as a coloured or patterned wall tile, floor tile or bathroom tile.
It’s so easy to combine neutrals too - no more than three or four shades at one time, though - for a calming, sophisticated space. A few earthy tones will look stunning if teamed with a natural stone floor tile, which come in a multitude of options creating a harmonious feel.
If you’re looking for a modern look a crisp white kitchen is a popular choice as it’s so fresh and exciting and can be given an injection of personality with beautiful coloured wall tiles or floor tiles as a focus point. For example, try azure blue backsplash kitchen tiles against white walls and cupboards for a real statement.
For a similar bright clean look in the bathroom try white wall tiles such as Metro tiles, accented with a soft grey border around the room for a sophisticated and modern look. Or use varying tones of white or ivory on the walls with stone floor tiles to make a bathroom look spacious, light and airy and give a spa-like quality to the room.
A neutral colour scheme is ideal for a bathroom that uses recycled or vintage accessories. To get that rustic farmhouse feel, combine classic materials such as stone floor tiles and beaded-board wainscoting painted in a warm white. Add baskets and trays for natural texture and storage.
