The perfect choice of wall and floor tiles may make all the difference when it comes to creating the illusion of a larger area.

Opt for Large Tiles

Opt for Large Tiles


Choose Light Coloured Tiles

If you want to make a small space appear larger, choosing the proper colour tiles is critical. While bold colours are trendy and can tend to create depth, if you're attempting to give the appearance of more space, it's better to use them sparingly.

Pale tile colours such as white, cream, beige, or grey are recommended since they may make a space appear lighter and brighter. Another helpful piece of advice is to choose a grout colour that nearly matches the tile's colour. You can create a fluid transition without such a sharp difference, which can make a space appear larger. 

Similarly, installing the same tiles for the walls and floors or throughout numerous rooms in a house can create the illusion of space since the eye finds it difficult to identify where one room ends and where the another begins.

Choose Glossy Wall Tiles

It's just as crucial to pick the proper finish as it is to pick the perfect colour. Glazed tiles will reflect light, making the space appear larger, whereas matt tiles would absorb light. If you don't like the look of glossy tiles, a tile with a little bit of sheen or metallic surface may be a nice compromise. 

Glossy tiles to the rescue if your room lacks lustre and natural light. The reflecting aspect of these shiny tiles illuminates your space, making it appear bigger and brighter.

Pick Simple Tiles

The eye is drawn to the dramatic arrangement of busy patterned tiles, which may dominate a room. That's not to say that patterned tiles can't be installed in tiny spaces; instead, choose a pattern with simple designs, such as marble or even other kinds of speckles.

Highly patterned tiles will overpower and aesthetically emphasize how cramped the place is, so use plainer or minimally patterned tiles if you don't want to make a space look tight.

Consider the Tile Laying Pattern

We're witnessing an increase in the number of folks who want to install tiles in unusual patterns. Vertical brick, chevron, herringbone, and basket weave are all popular patterns, but which one is the most successful at making a space appear larger?

Your tile installer will be able to advise you on the optimum tile laying pattern for your space; nevertheless, we frequently recommend putting tiles in a diagonal or diamond pattern. This pattern not only creates a feature wall that makes a statement in your selected space but it also helps to soften up sharp lines. Because the borders are less defined, the eye will be deluded into believing the space is larger than it is.

Choose Matching Wall & Floor Tiles for a Cohesive Effect

A room will look larger if the tiles match or have comparable tones. Two extreme and opposing tones, on the other hand, will visually cut up the room, making it look compact.  

Matching the colour and design of floor and wall tiles but using various sizes is an interesting twist. Installing the big tiles on the floor and the smaller tiles along the walls creates a uniform, monochrome effect, but it's broken up for more visual appeal, making the room look bigger.
