So, when we were asked by a customer what is the best way to create the illusion of space when there isn’t much, we had the perfect answer.

You have probably always thought that you should only use light tiles in small spaces because dark colours can make the room look smaller. While this can be true, if you tile the entire room or a large area in a dark colour, the darker tones will work in contrast with the white sanitary ware.

While it might feel counterintuitive, dark colours have a big impact on a small room and can even help to create depth. When done correctly, a dark colour can make a smaller space look larger as the darkness deepens the space and creates dimension. Black and dark colours can make the walls appear to recede, creating the illusion of more space.

Don’t shy away from using darker colours in smaller spaces with no windows. As you can see in the images below, dark tiles definitely have a place in a small space.
