Whilst large format tiles have fewer grout lines and are brilliant for making spaces appear bigger on larger areas of walls and floors, using smaller tiles in a small area can help make the space feel bigger in comparison. Large tiles still look great but they might bring attention to the fact the area is small.
To create a bit of interest in a simple pattern, experiment with some patterned drop-in tiles. Adding even the smallest detail can complement a pattern perfectly, the same goes for borders.
Adding a border is a beautiful finishing touch and there are plenty of variations to choose from. Infill is a great way to straighten up a pattern in a difficult space especially when dealing with tricky corners or wonky walls. It does mean though that there is less space for the pattern and border so make sure you consult your tiler and make sure that it is truly necessary when tiling a small place.
