9 tips to know to be able to "mix and match" floor tiles

9 tips to know to be able to “mix and match” floor tiles


1. Balance the tangled textures


Use small size tiles, such as these rectangular mosaic tiles, to create accents on a wall tile or other small area, not across the entire room. Combine them with oversized plain tiles and you’ll avoid a ridiculous design.

2. Light symmetrical textures nhạt


Only use patterned tiles on a single surface – floor or wall. In this photo, the modern style hexagonal tile takes center stage, while the glossy white large rectangular wall tile makes the room brighter.

3. Different sizes


One of the most important tips for coordinating tiles is to create balance by combining small and large textures together. In this bathroom, three types of tiles have been successfully combined: tiny hexagonal mosaic tiles on the tub and walls, medium hexagonal tiles around the sink and large rectangular tiles on the floor. The monochromatic palette helps to create a harmonious whole.

4. Stone creates neutrality


In this super large shower room, gray subway tiles on the ceiling create a focal point for the entire room. To soften grout lines and create cohesion, pair them with natural gray stone, which adds visual interest.

5. Matte finish


For a bathroom with tactile appeal, choose two textures and matte tiles, such as this brick wall, or with plain painted walls.

6. Matte and glossy surface combination


Forget about matching tiles of the same size and texture and opt for a matte and a glossy style. These high-gloss, beveled subway tiles blend harmoniously with the soft finish of monochrome floor tiles.

7. Various shapes, colorless


For a combination that works in any space, choose two tiles of the same solid color but different shapes and let the contours form the texture.

For a dramatic effect, choose a contrasting color, like this dark gray grout, paired with white subway tiles and small hexagonal mosaic tiles.


If you create a room with a subtly tiling floor that doesn’t stand out from the rest of the room, use an appropriate grout. This bathroom has the same tile combination as the previous one, but a huge difference in the sense of space is created when combined with the white grout.


You can use tiles of different sizes and colors, but choose uniform shapes to create harmony. This bathroom features rectangular tiles in two colors and two sizes, but they have the same texture pattern, which creates a visual connection between the planes.

9. Use certain colors


For a bathroom with many different surfaces, minimize competition between textures by limiting the color palette. With only gray and white throughout, this bathroom feels elegant and cohesive.
