Why Black Tiles?
You would be forgiven if you are a little weary of Black Tiles. However, their edgy and sophisticated look are an ideal choice for both a contemporary and traditional themed room. The intensity of Black Tiles can transform a standard room into an extremely stylish and beautiful space. This allows other accessories and furniture colours in the room to pop!
The brilliant practicality of Black Tiles is their ability not to show up dirt. Especially when combined with a black grout which aids the whole design to look fabulous for even longer.
The key to using Black Tiles correctly is maintaining simplistic, clean lines and being clutter free. This is to keep the look sleek and streamlined. Black Tiles work in any room, like with other tile options. Black works in initial rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms but also in sitting rooms, offices and bedrooms.
Most importantly when looking to update a room with Black Tiles, don’t forget to inject your personality into your overall design. Show off your design flare and go and have fun with it.
At Building Supplies Online, you will find a fantastic selection of black wall and black floor tiling options. All from leading UK manufacturers at competitive prices and with UK nationwide delivery.
Using Black Tiles in Smaller Spaces
You may feel that you couldn’t possibly contemplate using Black Tiles in a smaller room with limited natural light. On the contrary, instead of trying to disguise the fact, embrace it and use the warmth of black tiles to add a cosy, intimate and snug feel to your chosen room.
Black Tiles have a surprisingly warm and serene effect on a room, so consider black as a colour option if you are looking to renovate your home office.
Incorporating Black Tiles
If you don’t feel brave enough to incorporate Black Tiles throughout your room, try using Black Tiles on one specific wall. You end up with a striking feature wall or backdrop. This will still have impact and impress your guests as well as updating your room with a trend which is set to stay for a long time yet. Remember, a little goes a long way!
Our Function and Form Patchwork Black Gloss Tile also available in an optional satin finish. This makes a wonderful feature wall with its unique structured design and adds visible texture and interest to your chosen space. These Black Tiles also look amazing when coordinated with our Function and Form Plain and Gloss Tiles.
Another way to incorporate black for an instant update into your existing room. However, without the financial cost, consumption of time or if you are a weary about an all-black makeover is by combining it with another colour.
White has always been a natural pairing to achieve that timeless and striking monochrome finish. Monochrome owes its popularity to the cleverness of being modern yet traditional all at the same time, it just simply never dates. Check out our Laura Ashley Isodore White on Black Tile for inspiration. In fact, Matt Black Floor Tiles teamed with gloss shiny white wall tiles are showstopping.
Together they are trendy and elegant. The shine of the gloss tile offsets the matt of the black tile promoting a sought after textured look.
Black Tile Style Options
As highlighted above, textured tiles are extremely popular now. Especially with interior design publications and gurus.
Another example of this is with our Function and Form Wave Black Gloss Tile. This can be laid either vertically or horizontally depending on your personal preference. Texture will also soften the impact when using a block of Black Tiles in a room.
Victoria and Edwardian era style patterned white and black tiles have made a big comeback. Beautiful and luxurious in any room setting. These Black Tiles make a wonderful feature floor stipulating heritage and opulence. These tiles combined with other monochrome or wood features are great for a true authentic finish which will not disappoint.
Our Feature S Devonstone Black tile is a perfect example of this. Another black tile with a traditional inspired design is the Feature S Mary Floor Tile. This tile brings with it a current and contemporary twist to bring it right up to date.
Metro black tiles are a beautiful choice of Black Tiles especially if laid in a brick pattern layout replicating a brick wall. Extremely stunning with its combined vintage inspired look teamed with urban chic.
