How to use Tiles to Create a Relaxing EnvironmentLee Johnson
Tiles can be used anywhere around the house, from the bathroom to the living room. They also come in many different shapes, colours, textures and sizes – perfect to help you create any mood you want. Tiles can help you to express your personality, and there are endless ways of using them, which means you will have a décor that is uniquely yours and which showcases your personal tastes.
As online tile suppliers, we can help you to create a relaxing environment in your home with our products. Take a look at the tips we’ve put together in this article and you’ll be enjoying a calming space in no time.
Choose Relaxing Colour Schemes
One of the main ways to achieve a calming atmosphere is to choose ‘muted colours’. You may love lime green or fuchsia but staying away from vibrant colours is key here. You don’t have to completely ignore bright hues – since opting only for white interiors can make your home feel too clinical – but you should stick to the pastels and natural colours to achieve a calming result.
While some spaces in your home can be more vibrant, such as your kitchen, you want to generally focus on browns, light blues and even greys for your bedroom and living room. The Akron Gris Slate-Effect Mosaic Tiles showcase this brilliantly.
Adding natural elements can promote a relaxing environment, especially if you incorporate things that you enjoy. For instance, if your favourite place in the world is the beach, why not choose tiles that reflect the colour of the sand. Our Grespania Marmorea Hermes floor tiles can be a great option for this, as its hues will remind you of nature while remaining suitable for any modern décor.
Whether you wish to add it to your living room or dining room, you can be confident that you’ll have a soothing experience no matter what.
Add a Splash of Colour (or Black)
While you should certainly use natural colours and pastels as a base for a relaxing environment, you can still incorporate a dash of brighter hues in your décor as well. This will help the space to look interesting while still providing you with the right atmosphere to relax. It doesn’t have to be an accent wall either – a simple strip of colour is already a great way to make your interior design pop out without interfering with your relaxing atmosphere.
The splashback below (made fromVictoria Whisper Sage Ceramic Tiles) shows how a bit of colour can make the space more visually engaging while still being soothing.
You can even install dark tiles to a space with lighter colours, which will not only add a touch of class and elegance to the décor, it will also look inviting and soothing. For instance, take a look at how our Street Black Porcelain Mosaic Tiles beautifully complement the more neutral surroundings.
Dark colours, like black, make great additions to a natural décor, as they are sophisticated, but they don’t detract from the overall aesthetic you’re looking for.
Incorporate Interesting Textures
Just because you’ve opted for neutral or pastel colours, doesn’t mean that you can’t add personality to your space. We provide many tiles with gorgeous textures that can turn a ‘normal’ décor into something incredible. With our Original Style Collection Inca Gold 15 Mosaic, for example, you can either create a splashback or an accent wall or even add just a few rows of tiles to create an interesting look.
If you feel relaxed with bright colours and bold textures, however, there’s no reason why you can’t use tiles such as these around your home.
Be Mindful of Hygge
Hygge is a Scandinavian concept that embraces cosiness, warmth and relaxation, so it’s perfect for anyone wanting to create a soothing atmosphere in their home. It’s further characterised by feelings of contentment, safety and of being snuggled up indoors while it’s cold outside.
To create such feelings in your home, why not choose tiles with a natural finish to get into the spirit of hygge? Our Ca’ Pietra Long Island Marble Hexagon Mosaics may be exactly what your bathroom needs.
You should also keep it as simple as possible, since hygge also means having a clutter-free space where the mind can be at ease. You can achieve this simplicity with our Bellacasa Gacela Blanco Wall Tiles, which help you to create a clean, soothing space where you can unwind after a busy day.
