Neutral tones such as grey, beige, or cooler shades of "bolder" colours like green, blue, yellow, or violet, can be surprisingly versatile and useful additions to interior design. Wall tiles, from Toronto to Calgary and beyond, that capture neutral tones are able to meet a wide variety of needs, enhance any space with modern flair, and let you show off your personality; even while remaining timeless, these are visuals that won't go out of style. If it seems hard to believe that neutral wall tiles can do all of this, then please, read on.
Features of a Neutral Colour Palette in Your Home
Enhances the Space
A room's textural elements are more easily displayed when using neutral wall tiles. This means that a neutral palette not only better expresses the texture of your choice in wall tile, but it also helps enhance the effects of textures like brushed velvets, linens, wooden features, and more. From the shine of your tiles to the rustic take of a wooden frame, neutral walls let these and other features take centre stage.
Bold, bright colours can feel engaging when you first look at them and can be great for rooms you don't use frequently. However, such striking visuals can wear on you over time, and vibrant shades are more likely to fall out of your favor. The subdued, calming nature of neutral tones helps grant them an impressive timeless quality that you won't easily tire of no matter how many years—or decades—pass.
Modernizes a Traditional Look
Neutral wall tiles, especially those that incorporate elements of grey, are useful for giving a modern sensibility to rooms that make use of traditional styles. Neutral tones are highly versatile and rarely give a dated impression, thereby letting you bring new focus to other elements of the room.
Reflects Your Personality
Since neutral wall tiles are not particularly intrusive, their use opens up a large number of opportunities for designing the rest of your home space. Your personality and preferences can come to the forefront, allowing you to pick the furniture, cushions, and trims that best exemplify your unique vision. A neutral palette in wall tile allows you to use bold furniture and accessories like those with stripes or animal prints, without making a room feel visually cluttered. The neutral tones will accent, not overshadow, your own personal expression.
Shows off Background Arts
Whether it is in the form of landscape paintings, portraits, sculptures, or hanging knick-knacks, artwork is a common feature on many walls. When working with more bold or forward colours, it can be tricky to strike a balance between the loudness of the wall and the colours and images of your art. Neutral tones get around this issue and help show off your choices of artwork in the same way they help focus the rest of a room's furnishings.
