THE BEAUTY OF THE CONTINUING FLOOR TILES ON WALLS

Uniformity is key.

 

Because porcelain tiles are universal and suitable for all surfaces, there is no need to only limit them to the floor surfaces.

In a modern bathroom, the most common combination is porcelain and ceramic wall tiles. Porcelain tiles, which are stronger, more resistant, and non-slip, are usu­ally laid on the floor, and wall ceramic tiles on the walls, as they are lighter and less heavy for the walls. While wall ceramic tiles should not be laid on the floor, porcelain tiles can be laid both on the floor and on the walls.

When designing a bathroom, the most important issue is the combination of wall and floor tiles, which of course depends on personal taste and style, as well as the characteristics of the space itself. Ceramic wall tiles and porcelain tiles differ not only in the purpose of use but also in texture and surface - and the color & pattern can increase the contrast. Opt for a combination in similar colors and different patterns, a combination of patterned tile and a solid base color tile, or combine different colors. A nice contrast could be also achieved with a combination of matt textured and smooth glossy tiles.

 

Because porcelain tiles are universal and suitable for all surfaces, we do not need to limit them only to the floor. An uninteresting space can also be wonderfully enriched by laying porcelain tiles on the floor and simultaneously on the wall or part of the wall we want to highlight. This is how we bring depth and visual interest into the space. Porcelain tiles imitating wood, stone or cement will also work great in the shower, which will slightly separate part of the room, or on the wall behind the sink, which will act as a focal point of the room. Tiles laid on the floor continue nicely even onto walls with flushing systems or other supporting walls.

We can also combine several different types of tiles. Porcelain tiles that have been laid on the floor can also be continued along the wall behind the sink, and in the shower or bathtub we can lay another type of porcelain tiles or choose decorative tiles with a floral or geometric pattern or 3D tiles. For other walls in this case, choose wall tiles in more neutral colors and with a minimal, unob­trusive pattern. Combined tiles should be connected by a certain feature, a sim­ilarity or a certain contrast. If we combine wood in brown tones and stone in beige tones, decorative tiles with a pattern that also contains these two color shades will match nicely.

However, two types of tiles can be connected in a sim­ilar tone, the third tile is in a contrasting color. Of course, combinations that don’t apply conventional rules of combining can also work great, but require a little more thought and feeling. The combination of different tiles and thoughtful planning allows us to create a unique space that will always surprise us and fill us with energy. Gorenje Keramika offers wall and porcelain tiles in many colors, patterns and tex­tures, with which you can create the effect you want, be it a bold contrast, a calm and relaxing atmosphere or a playful and unique puzzle.
