The Art of Mixing Different Tile Styles in a Single Space

When you put together different tile styles in a single space, you're not only adding depth and texture to the design but also creating a unique and personalized aesthetic for your home. Here are some tips to help you mix and match various tile styles effectively:

  1. Start with a Neutral Base

A neutral base allows you to create a foundation that you can build upon with colorful or decorative tiles. Gray or beige tiles are a popular choice for creating a neutral base, but you can also use white or black tiles for a more dramatic effect. Here is one of the recent customer projects that features Marazzi Moroccan Concrete Hex tile in a variation of gray colors with the off white base.

If the room you're working on is on the smaller side, the use of lighter tiles to create a neutral base can give the illusion of a larger space, while darker tones can create a sense of intimacy and coziness in larger rooms.

  1. Choose a Dominant Tile Style

The dominant tile style is usually the main tile that you'll use throughout the majority of the space. Consider the color, pattern, and texture of the tile to ensure it matches the overall aesthetic of the room.

For example, if you're going for a traditional look, consider using a simple subway tile, while if you're going for a more modern aesthetic, you can use big-format tiles such as a 24” x 24” tile.

  1. Add a Complementary Tile Style

Adding complementary tiles creates contrast and interest in the design. For example, patterned cement tiles, colored glass mosaics, or natural stone tiles can be incorporated with the dominant tile style to create a cohesive yet dynamic look.

When mixing different tile styles, it's important to keep the color scheme cohesive. Stick to one or two colors that complement each other to create a seamless transition between the different tiles.

  1. Use Accent Tiles Sparingly

Accent tiles are a great way to add a pop of color or texture to your tile design but use them sparingly since overusing them can make the design feel chaotic rather than cohesive.

One way to use accent tiles is to place them under a vanity or install them in a niche. Metallic accents like stainless steel and copper can also be a great way to add some shine to the design.

  1. Work with a Professional

If you're unsure about how to mix and match different tile styles, consider working with a professional. A tile installer or interior designer can help you choose the right tiles to create a beautiful and cohesive design. They can also help you find creative tile solutions for unique spaces like curved walls or long, narrow layouts.

By following these tips and working with a professional if needed, you can effectively mix and match various tile styles to create a visually appealing and cohesive look in any room. Don't be afraid to get creative and add your personal style to the design. Mixing different tile styles can be a fun and rewarding way to add interest and character to your home.
