White Out 2016

Wednesday 24 February 2016, Written by Laura Tompkins Tags: Colours

When it comes to interiors, we often wish for a calm and tranquil oasis we can look forward to returning home to after a long stressful day. Dreams of clean crisp whites however do not always work in reality, how many of us with muddy shoed children, pets and busy lifestyles wonder how long these beautiful interiors would actually stay white?

Well, it can be done! Tiles are the perfect solution for those who want to make white interiors work in their home. Bathrooms and kitchens are the obvious choice for using white tiles with the main benefit of being incredibly easy to clean, not to mention their hard wearing and durable qualities. White is also a brilliant colour for creating interesting and unusual styles without creating too much fuss, try Slate Chiara (see below) from the Tileworks collection to add some texture whilst maintaining a peaceful and contemporary feel. 

Variation in colour and shade is also great for creating a neutral interior with some added detail, for example Marble Cararra from the Tileworks Autumn collection has beautiful marble detailing while still maintaining a beautiful crisp white finish. The large format style is also ideal for covering large areas, where less grout gaps result in a cleaner appearance making for that dreamy crisp white finish.

If you want something with added interest try using some different materials such as mosaics or glass. Argent from the Glassworks collection is a brilliant alternative to porcelain or ceramic and glass is great for smaller kitchens and bathrooms because of its reflective qualities.
