Room size and purpose

When used on walls, darker coloured tiles can add depth as well as highlight focal points within a space. Light natural hues act beautifully as a blank canvas or backdrop for furniture and décor, and appeal to a larger audient. From the bathroom sanctuary to the bustling kitchen, every room is unique and has a different purpose so it’s important to consider what colour tiles are best suited to that space.

Alternatively, if your style is Hamptons, your go to colours are blues, greens, whites and naturals.
