Combining tiles of various sizes, shapes and patterns on walls and floors can be a daunting task. And those elements, along with colors, costs, etc., are details that should be carefully considered. And it can be a sizable investment (and not an easy change), so it’s worth getting samples and experimenting with how tiles work together. These tips will teach you how to mix and match tiles styles for a beautiful, cohesive design!

Combining small- and large-scale patterns is one of the most important tips for mixing tile well. In this design, we used a large scale, colorful pattern on the floor and smaller neutral tiles on the walls. This allowed the room to flow, and the small and large patterns to play well with one another.

Neutral Zone

This client wanted a soften look, but not too cold, so we paired a beautiful gray and white floor tile with larger neutral tiles for the shower walls.  The warm cabinet color balances the feel of the bathroom, makes a statement and adds visual interest that doesn’t try to compete.

Take it to the Top

Don’t be afraid to make a statement.  We chose all the materials and finishes for this contemporary custom home and in this secondary bathroom.  We chose a beautiful marble, large scale tile and took it all the way up the wall to the ceiling. It creates a dramatic affect without competing with the overall feel and design of the room.

Busy Patterns, Why Not?

Use small statement tiles, such as these teal blue tiles, to create a backdrop for the star of the room, you guessed it, the wallpaper! We combined this teal color against the bold wallpaper for a fun playful vibe that still avoids making your eyes go funny!
