Our top tips and seven style ideas will help inspire you to create a seamless look with matching floor and wall tiles.
With so many shapes, colours, styles and sizes of tiles out there, it can be a bit of a minefield when it comes to achieving your vision. While it can be great to use two or three different tiles, using the same tile range on your floor and wall can create a really premium look. This technique will also help make small spaces appear bigger, particularly if you’ve gone for a glossy tile in a lighter shade.
A similar colour scheme in the room will also ensure visual harmony and a plain colour will be the perfect backdrop to let your accessories and furnishings shine
If you don’t want to go for a completely matching look, you can use a range that includes a feature tile to add some texture or interest or choose matt for the floor and gloss for walls.
This might sound a bit obvious, but do make sure the tiles are suitable for walls and floors or find a range that has a version of each.
If you’re tiling a high traffic area, opt for an anti-slip version of the tiles.
Rectified floor tiles allow you to minimise the width of your grout joints, which is another trick when it comes to seamless and spacious.
Grout lines will blend and add to the seamless effect if you choose a complementary or matching colour.
Matching wall and floor tile styles
Marble effect instantly adds glamour with the practical hardwearing quality of porcelain and looks great on both walls and floors? Opt for a subtle vein for a lighter look, or go dramatic with bold veining.
Concrete-look wall and floor tiles will invoke industrial chic in any room, and grey is a great choice of colour as a backdrop for black and white accessories.
Light and Airy
The soft colouring of cream is perfect if you’re looking to create a luxury finish. Choose from coordinating tiles or a matching décor tile to add texture and interest.
Wood effect tiles not only look great on the floor, but they will also bring warmth and cosiness to walls too. High colour and pattern variation between tiles add to a natural chic appearance.
Make a bold statement with matching patterned tiles. For a more subtle effect, try just small sections or enhance certain areas like a splashback, inset shelf or a feature wall.
It’s not just squares and rectangles that can pull off the seamless look – shaped tiles will really make your room stand out. We love these hexagons available in plain or patterned designs.
Using large format tiles will take the seamless look a step further with more coverage per tile and fewer grout lines. This gorgeous customer project looks effortlessly chic with large grey tiles.
