Mixing and matching bathroom tiles can be tricky. There are certain design rules you need to follow when updating your bathroom’s design.
1. Balance Bold Colors With Plain Designs
Bold colors and patterns can add a bit of personality to your bathroom. However, on their own, they can be a bit too much. That’s why designers recommend offsetting bold colors and patterns with monochromatic designs and color schemes to prevent them from adding to visual clutter.
2. Use Tiles in Different Sizes
Another problem with using tiles with bold colors and designs is that they easily clash with each other. One way of minimizing the risk of clashes while maintaining a degree of variety in the design is to use the same pattern for tiles of different sizes.
3. Stick to Neutral Colors
If you’re having trouble coordinating bold colors, you might want to stick to a neutral color scheme. Neutral colors complement practically all shades and hues and never go out of style. They also help create a calming atmosphere in your bathroom that can help you relax.
4. Use Different Tile Finishes
You can also use different finishes to add a bit more variety. To create contrast, you can juxtapose matte tiles with shiny ones when mixing and matching bathroom tiles.
5. Stick to One Shape
There needs to be at least one element that can tie the bathroom design together. Sticking to one shape for your tiles will help unify all the different design elements. Remember: When it comes to bathroom design, consistency is key.
Of course, these rules aren’t set in stone since there will always be a few exceptions. To make sure none of your tiles clash, it’s best to consult a professional remodeler from one of your local small bathroom renovation companies.
