New tile patterns can add warmth, style and elegance to any room in a house. In fact, the durability and ease of maintenance of tiles make them a popular choice among homeowners today. However with millennials migrating from city to city for work, developers are driving down average size of apartments to make homes for affordable for buyers. But in spite of wanting more compact and convenient homes, one common theme among these buyers is to make their rooms appear larger and more spacious.

A large variety of tiles in numerous sizes exist in the Indian market today. Large format tiles with fewer grout lines and simple designs can help make a room look more spacious and give a seamless finish. Glossy finish tiles also help brighten a space.

Additionally, keeping a room as light and bright as possible is a way to open it up and make it seem larger. Neutral colours like whites, creams and pale grey can help achieve this. Specialist paint with a soft sheen finish that resists dust and stains is ideal to reflect natural light and five the illusion of height and space.

When it comes to making the perfect bathroom, it is extremely important to double check tile sizes. The single biggest mistake people make in tile layout is not ensuring that they buy the correct tile size. By purchasing a good sample of tiles, you can lay them out and check them for warping.

Further, tile layout around doors and windows is critical. Every window or door has its own challenge and waterproofing the assembly may be a challenge.

With the rise in technology there have been various innovations within the tile industry. One of these is the advent of digital tiles. These tiles come in different faces which means that each tile in a box is unique. Random printing also ensures that no two tiles look the same in design and colour distribution, thereby giving any space a more natural look.

So the next time you think of renovating your space, ensure to consider the often overlooked yet convenient and cost effective solution of installing the right kind of tiles.
