Tips to Help You Choose the Right Tile Color

The trend in colors constantly changes and as a homeowner it is not your responsibility to keep up with it. What you need to do is to create timeless room interiors that can easily outlive these trends. That is why it is very crucial to have the right tile colors for the essential rooms of the house, i.e. kitchen and bathroom. Your floor and wall tile color are one of the most important factors that need to be considered when you are matching them with all the fixtures, pieces of furniture, and appliances that you need to install. Make sure that you are able to pick a color that has the potential to match any type of interior setting that you have in mind. Using a tile color that can complement a wide array of themes or color schemes will be very beneficial for you in the long run. To get the most out of the tiles that you plan to use for your enhancement project, here are some tips that you can use when picking.

What is the room’s purpose?

Answering this question will lead you to a certain color group. There are come tile colors that will work in the kitchen but will not work in your bedroom. Using yellow subway tile colors might work for your backsplash but it will sometimes be awkward to use this in other walls of the house. It is very important to look at the room’s purpose to know the tile material that will perfectly fit your room and this also limits your color options. Knowing the main function of the room will also be beneficial when looking for fixtures and furniture.

Scrutinize the effects of the color schemes

Most designers will tell you that a small room needs brighter wall paints and floor tiles to make it appear more spacious while dark colors will do the opposite effect. Using this as a guiding principle when choosing a color scheme for your tiles will help you zoom in your choices into a particular “group”. Choosing an interior plan for a yellow tile bathroom will be easier if you already have an idea regarding the overall effect of your choice. Aside from cream-based colors, and toned down yellows, other natural tile colors will also help you obtain that much needed timeless interior for your house. A lot of people who are planning on flipping a property usually go for natural hues because they are most likely to enhance the value of the house. It gives the buyer an opportunity to get their desired furniture and decor without worrying about the walls and floors.

Neutral base colors

If you are undecided and want to keep it simple, getting neutral colors for your tiles will also be sufficient. Once you get tired of these neutral colors you can always spice it up by adding hints of pink, blue, or yellow glass tile colors on your walls. Neutral base colors can accommodate soft and bold furnishings so it will get along well with any new ideas you will have in the future. Trying this minimalistic approach to interior decoration will also point you in the right direction once you decide on doing some bold changes in your house.

Create an airy room 

Remodeling a stuffy bathroom in your house always leads to the question “How can I create an airy and spacious feel out of this?” It is a question that is very simple to address. Small spaces can benefit a lot when you choose lighter colors. When the white or cream-colored tiles are getting boring, you can always opt for lighter tones of pink, blue, and even yellow bathroom tile. These lighter colors also reflect the light in the room as much as their white and cream counterparts. Using the pastel yellow penny tile for your bathroom floor and kitchen backsplashes will not just enhance the spacious feeling of the room but also add an interesting texture to it. When properly installed along with your choice of wall and floor tiles for the kitchen and bath, the penny tiles have the ability of creating a seamless look despite its texture that stands out.

Choose between warm or cool tiles

When picking the tile color, it is also important to choose it in accordance with the atmosphere that you want to achieve. More or less, when you are selecting a tile for the kitchen you will generally choose something warm while for the bathroom, people will usually want cooler color tones. Warm and welcoming atmospheres are mainly created when you choose shades of red, orange, and yellow while blue and green shades are associated with refreshing colors. But if you are decided to use the warmer tone in your bathroom, you can use a lighter shade of orange and yellow mosaic tile colors to achieve the midpoint of that warm yet refreshing bathroom. A mix and match of light and dark blue and green tones can also create the same effect. With the existence of color shade variations, playing with it will help you achieve the right atmosphere for your rooms.  

There are a lot of tile colors available for your remodeling project. In determining what will work best for your house, you just need to be more open to the ever-changing trend. Especially when you are not planning on selling the property after the project is done. Timeless interiors can save your money in the long run but something sharp and edgier will make your character pop when you can follow some existing trends.

Kitchen Tile Flooring

Aside from getting the right color, you will also need to consider getting the right tile material. This is very important especially when they will be used for floors of high traffic areas at home. Your kitchen and bathroom flooring should be given attention because most slip and fall accidents may occur here. Knowing the right tile material that will work for these areas will be a way to secure your family’s safety. To help you pick the right tile material, here are the most common tiles used for the kitchen or even for your bathroom floors.

Porcelain Tiles – These are harder and denser tiles which are perfect for high traffic areas. This is a material that you can consider if you want to have a yellow floor tile for your kitchen because they can in almost all colors. This will also be a perfect fit for your vintage yellow tile bathroom because glazed and unglazed porcelain tiles have a wide array of patterns that adds aesthetic value to your room once installed. However, the installation will be less DIY friendly because it often needs special tools. 

Ceramic Tiles – The beauty of a ceramic tile will be perfect if you are trying to remodel your yellow tile kitchen flooring. Although they are considered to be softer than porcelain tiles, the ceramic tiles can be glazed to make the surface harder and impervious to spills and stains. These tiles are also available in any color, so if you are looking for a more DIY friendly tile with a wide range of colors to choose from, the ceramic tiles will be a considerable option.

Stone Floor Tiles – Slate, granite, limestone, travertine, and marble are some of the materials that you can choose from when you are considering to use natural stones as your kitchen flooring tiles. However, since they are porous, refinishing jobs every two or three years will be needed in order to ensure that they are protected from staining and breaking. There are two ways for you to create a vibrant look for your stone tiles, polishing and honing. Polishing is done to bring out the full beauty of the stone but it creates less traction when the stone surface is wet. Honing on the other hand prevents the tiles from being too slippery but the finish of your stone tiles can sometimes be less vibrant. So your choice will be between safety and beauty.
