by | Nov 30, 2020 | Commercial Flooring, Design Tips

Looking to enhance your home with a flooring solution that’s versatile, durable, and cost-effective? Often one the more unsung heroes of the flooring world, tile has many perks and options to offer property owners, especially when used in a commercial space. Built to withstand the demand of higher daily foot traffic without compromising style, tile can handle the realities of commercial spaces without the need for constant repair, often at a much cheaper cost than most other alternatives. Below, we’ll discuss a few easy ways you can get creative with your use of tile to enhance your space. Read on to learn more!

Create A Colour “Atmosphere”

As with other kinds of flooring, one of the best ways to enhance your space is to employ the basic principles of colour play to create the atmosphere you desire for each room. Darker colours paired with softer lighting will create a more intimate, enclosed dynamic, whereas lighter colours will create a more open feel that can make your space seem much larger and inviting. Knowing how to experiment with colour makes it easy to transform your commercial space into the perfect area for customers and staff alike.

Don’t Be Afraid To Play With Angles And Spacing

Much like colour can shape a room, angling and spacing your tiles can do the same. Larger tiles with more space/grout between them can be used to create a much bolder looker, whereas tighter spaces may benefit from a closer fit between tiles with less obvious grouting. You can also create different patterns and influence a directional flow for your customers to follow.

Showcase Different Areas With The Pop/Wallflower Approach

Draw customers’ eyes to your preferred focal points by using brighter, bolder, tiles where you want them to focus and using more understated colours in areas that require less attention. Selecting grouting that has a more obvious tonal difference to your tiles can also be used as a way to draw the eye, giving you plenty of room to experiment and play when creating your perfect space.

Don’t Be Afraid To Experiment!

Finally, don’t feel like you have to be timid when making your tile selections. With so many options readily on hand, it’s easy to create a dynamic space that delights both customers and staff alike. Partnering with an experienced team of flooring experts makes choosing the right fit simple, and allows you to move forward with confidence, one room at a time.
