Why Bigger Tiles Look Better in the Space?
ALWAYS CHOOSE LARGE FORMAT TILES
Large tiles trick the eye into thinking the room is bigger instead of smaller. Large tiles provide clean lines that make the room appear less busy and visually overpowering. Whereas smaller tiles do the opposite which makes the space appear small and confining.
CHOOSE LARGE LIGHT TILES
Choose Large Light Tiles
Large floor and wall tiles that are a light hue will make the space feel more open and expansive as light floods into every area. Dark tiles tend to absorb light which makes the space seem dull and oppressive. The space seems even smaller because it is cast in shadows.
With big tiles, you have fewer grout lines. Try to pick a hue of grout that compliments the tile, so it creates flow in the room. If the color contrasts too much, then the room can look busy and cluttered. Basically, you want to create a seamless appearance.
PICK A PLAIN TILE
Avoid highly patterned tiles which will create more visual stimulation in a room and make it seem busy which causes a claustrophobic feeling for many people. Instead, choose large, plain tiles so the space does not feel cramped.
Choose Big Glossy Wall and Floor Tiles
Glazed tiles help light bound back which makes the room brighter and bigger, especially when combined with a light colour choice
When laying food tiles, a standard grid of large tiles or an elongated diamond pattern usually gives the feeling of greater space.
