All White Now

Monday 3 June 2013, Written by Tags: Colours

If there’s one thing you can count on when it comes to interior design, it’s the continuous popularity of an all-white or similarly neutral colour scheme. There’s something about the look of a crisp, pale space that evokes a sense of cleanliness and peace, meaning that it is a favourite for countless homeowners around the globe.

With such a simplistic colour scheme, however, there is the potential for the space to become somewhat clinical or lacking in character. Fortunately, there is a whole host of ways to ensure this doesn’t happen, starting with texture. A wide variety of raised and textured tiles are popular at the moment. These designs add interest and floral patterns look beautiful, especially in plain white. In a high gloss finish, textured products will catch the light in different ways when viewed from various angles. 

Or, why not opt for stone? The shade variations that occur naturally will complement the neutrality of your scheme but prevent the look from becoming too uniform. Natural stone instantly provides a rustic and attractive finish, and is a material that will look better as it ages.

Choose an interesting tile shape to create an eye-catching effect. If you like brick shapes, select one with a bevel for an on trend and striking look to suit modern and traditional interiors.
