Choosing the right marble effect tiles
Your chose floor design, like everything else in your home, should reflect your personal taste, and with so many different colours, textures, finishes, and sizes of marble effect tiles to choose from, you’re sure to find something to fit every area.
Create a distinct look in each area or a unified look throughout the house. However, depending on the location and lighting of interior space, you may want to keep a few factors in mind while selecting marble effect tiles.
The basic rule is that the brighter the tile, the more light it will reflect back into the room. Using a light beige, grey, or white tile in a smaller interior space will help to capture all those rays of sunshine and brighten up even the darkest of spaces.
Heavy-patterned, darker shaded marble effect tiles, on the other hand, can be used to bring attention to the floor and create a more dramatic impact.
Just be careful when choosing tiles as most will become slippery when wet. If it’s a busy area you’re looking to tile, you might want to opt for an anti-slip tile instead.
Grout for marble effect tiles
Grout colours should also be considered while evaluating the style you want to attain.
Most people match the grout for a natural look and consistency, but the variety of colours available allows for unexpected contrasts that can give another dimension to a floor or wall design.
