Which Tile Size Is Best For A Small Room?

Tiles in Adelaide

Working in a small space poses a great set of challenges. The goal for most Adelaide homeowners is to use design elements such as tiles as smartly as possible. This enables them to make their small rooms more inviting and spacious.

The smaller your space is, the more critical each design choice becomes. Tile selection, for example, is one of the intuitive factors affecting the feel of your room.

But which kind of tile should you pick? Read on and find out!


The Best Tiles for Your Small Adelaide Rooms

You can incorporate two types of tiles into your small Adelaide rooms to create an illusion of space. These are the two tiling strategies you should keep in mind:


Using Large Tiles

Your eyes notice the minor divisions between one tile and the next. Each time our eyes cross over a line, our sight is interrupted.

However, our sight is barely interrupted when big tiles are installed in a small room. This creates the illusion of openness and helps make a small room feel less crowded.

At the same time, subconsciously, our brain is aware that the room can fit large objects. This leads us to feel like the room we’re in is more significant than it is.

If you want to boost space in your small Adelaide rooms, large-sized tiles are a trick you will want to try.


Using Tiny Tiles

While it might sound counterintuitive after the last recommendation, super-small tiles can also work in your favour.

Teeny, tiny tiles can also create the illusion of space. The science behind this is a little like a mind trick. As our brain processes the image of a room, it is aware of the large number of tiles that fit into the room. In turn, this creates an underlying feeling that the space we are in is more significant than it is.


Other Space-Boosting Elements to Look For In Tiles

Light is your best ally. When making a small space appear larger, Anything that reflects a lot of light will make your small Adelaide room appear more spacious and open.

This is why we advise homeowners looking to create the illusion of open space to opt for light-coloured or glossy tiles. Light-colored tiles will invite light into your room. A polished surface will also reflect light for an added perception of space.
