Ways To Make Your Room Look Bigger With Wall Tiles

If you’re renovating a small space, whether it’s a bathroom, kitchen or dining room, there are plenty of tricks used by interior designers, builders and contractors that can really affect the way a room is perceived in terms of size.

We often get asked which tiles are best for enhancing the feeling of space in the home, and you’ll be pleased to know that there are a few different types that will help you transform the look of your interior. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about how to make a room appear bigger with wall tiles.

Large Format Wall Tiles

A lot of people will shy away from selecting large tiles when beginning their renovation journey in their home. There is often a misconception that large tiles will dominate the space and make an area appear more compact, however this isn’t true. 

Large format tiles are actually perfect for giving the impression of more space as the reduced amount of grout lines around the room can leave a space feeling less cluttered. 

With a huge choice of large format wall tiles across our range, you have more than enough options to choose from to create that sought-after aesthetic. We have everything from large wood-effect options to timeless marble-effect designs that sit beautifully as striking feature walls or across all four. Our elegant Marmori porcelain wall tiles in particular are perfect for bathrooms, as they leave that luxurious polished finish that works beautifully as a backdrop to a statement freestanding bath.

Light Coloured Wall Tiles

Choosing the right colour tiles is fundamental if you’re trying to make a room look bigger. Although bold colours are more modern and provide contrast, it’s often recommended to use them very sparingly if your main goal is to create the appearance of more space. We recommend choosing pale wall tiles such as white, cream, beige or grey as they will help make an area appear instantly brighter. Consider a matching grout to create that added seamless finish. Our sophisticated Cliveden and Kingston wall tiles are an ideal choice for this look and work beautifully in modern kitchens and bathrooms.

Direct the Eye with Pattern

If you’re a big lover of pattern but still want to create the illusion of more space, then positioning your wall tiles in a herringbone or chevron format might just be the solution you’re looking for! 

With these types of patterns, you can magically make your room appear larger, as the shapes move the eye along the surfaces. Positioning your wall tiles vertically can also create a similar effect, as they will create the illusion of more height.
