The colour black exudes confidence, style and sophistication. A popular choice for both walls and floors of kitchens and bathrooms, black tiles are extremely versatile and are certain to leave a lasting impression. Whether you’re thinking of textured black bathroom wall tiles or a black gloss kitchen splashback, we have a huge range to choose from and can guarantee we’ll have the right black tile for your home.

Black & White

When it comes to tile colours, there’s no denying that black and white are the most popular choices. The ultimate contrasting colour palette, a monochrome black and white tiled space will strike the perfect balance. For a sleek and contemporary feel, opt for matching large black and white tiles on both the walls and the floors, helping you to zone different areas. Our Traffic collection is perfect for those wanting to achieve a cohesive, modern black and white tiled bathroom.

Another effective way of pairing your black tiles with a paler colour is to combine black glossy tiles with painted white walls. A white painted wall dividing your sink and bathing space for instance is a great way of neutralising a dark bathroom scheme. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to make a bit more of a design statement, think about tiling the lower half of your wall in white and the top half in black.

All Black

Those that are a bit braver might want to create some drama and fully embrace the dark side. Opting for a fully black tiled room will result in a space that’s both luxurious and atmospheric. If you’re lucky enough to have plenty of natural daylight in your bathroom, our smooth surfaced Earth tiles will look stunning on both the walls and floors, and when teamed with chrome brassware and accessories, will result in a bathroom that’s worth showing off.

Natural wood is the perfect juxtaposition to black tiles, creating an eye-catching contrast of warmth and drama. Team an interesting pattern or textured tile with natural wood cabinetry and worktops in the kitchen to achieve a truly welcoming yet design-led space.
