The Many Shades of White Tile – Which One is the Best?
Interestingly, white may seem like a simple hue. However, it can actually create one of the toughest decision-making processes for home remodeling projects. There aren’t just a few shades of white tile available; there are hundreds. Each shade has its own undertones and tints. When paired with other colors, all of these different shades can create a variety of aesthetics in room design.
How can anyone determine which shade of white tile will work best in a specific space? Whatever aesthetic you’re trying to achieve, you must choose the best shade for your project to create the right vibe in your place. Here are some tips on how to do exactly that:
How to Choose a White Tile Shade for Your Project
Consider whether you want your space to have a clean, bright, minimalist feel, or you’d rather go for a warmer, inviting look.
Bright whites achieve a clean, simple, contemporary look. These shades create bold contrasts against other materials, as well as with other colors. They also reflect the most light, so if you’d like to make a space appear larger than it is, these shades will do the trick. Classic bright whites also help create an airy, open atmosphere.
Creamy whites are ideal for those who want a clean, contemporary space but want to add warmth. These paler white shades are infused with a bit of yellow, reducing the starkness of bright white hues. Creamy whites work best with de-saturated hues like pastels if your interior design is neutral or traditional. Some of the most popular pastels with creamy whites are powder blue, blush, and soft mint green.
Soft shades of white tile contain subtle touches of ivory in them. These tones create a warmer aesthetic for various projects than bright white without appearing as yellow as creamy white hues. Soft whites are often paired with warm wood finishes, and they also work beautifully with various color choices. They are versatile shades because they tend to lean toward traditional and contemporary aesthetics, depending on how and where you use them in your space.
Gray has been a popular interior color for a few years now, and gray-tinged white tiles are no different. White-grey shades pair well with other neutrals and cool colors. They are also very flexible in their application, and people often use these shades in modern, contemporary, or industrial interior designs. These shades of white are excellent for rooms that want to emit a clean, crisp look without overpowering your senses upon entrance.
Blush white tones are the shades of white tile with a hint of pink undertone in them. If the furnishings or the main surface of a room have blush white in them, you’ll want to stick with the same for your tiles. These pink-tinged white shades are very popular with people who want to create an inviting space without a yellow undertone.
Choosing the Best Tile for Your Interior
When choosing a shade of white to use for your space, consider the aesthetic you want to present, which interior finishes you will choose (along with the tile), and how the outdoor light coming into the room may affect the hue.
