Meanwhile, these five tips will put you on the right path to find the ideal tiles for your Adelaide home.

  • Work with the Room Decor


Every room of the house is unique and serves a different purpose. Therefore, the tiles that are perfect for one room might not be suitable for another. Be careful though, not to get caught up in the details and lose the bigger picture. The design of each room must flow in harmony with the style of the rest of your home.

If a sophisticated and rustic look is what you are looking for. Then wood-look tiles would be the idyllic design for you. Colourful tiles in splashbacks, accent walls or borders will make a simple statement and add some character to your Adelaide home.

  • Choose the Right Size


Add a larger and airier feel to your small rooms by using large tiles. With fewer grout lines, they look like one large unseparated surface, creating the illusion of a bigger space.

More spacious rooms give you more tiling options. You can use small-sized or mosaic tiles and get more colours and patterns.

  • Patterned or Plain Tiles


Patterned tiles add depth to the room and create a focal point. They are perfect for statement walls and floors. To add cohesiveness, you can use the same patterned floor tiles on the walls. It will not work the other way around though, as floor tiles are made of stronger materials and have a harder glaze to withstand traffic.

For small areas, plain tiles are more suitable, as complicated patterns could make the room feel crowded.


  • Tiles Colour Palette


With the unlimited options of tiles colours in the market today, choosing a suitable colour palette could be confusing. To narrow down your choices, take the general atmosphere you want to achieve in the room as your guide.

Some colours, like cream, beige and brown create an impression of warmth, while blue and green make the room feel cool. Light-coloured tiles will make the room feel bigger while using the same coloured wall tiles on the floor can create a perception of more space.

  • Grout Colour


To make the grout lines stand out and emphasise the design and shape of the tiles, choose a contrasting grout colour. On the other hand, complementary grout colours will blend with the tiles, giving the room a subtle effect.
