Plain Tiles Ideas from Walls and Floors

Looking for a voguish simple design? Then look no further than our selection of Plain Tiles. Plain doesn’t necessarily mean boring – not with the fantastic collection of Plain Tiles we have to offer.

So what do we mean by ‘plain’ tiles? By ‘plain,’ we mean any tile that consists of one solid colour. No mottled stone effect. No linear print stretching from one end to the other. No captivating geometric pattern or Moroccan design. Just a nice, simple, smooth block of colour; perfect for injecting your favourite shade into your interiors.  

Plain White Tiles: Creating a Blank Canvas 

Think of a tile, and you’ll most likely think of a flat, square, plain white tile. Are we right? A classic tile. A tile that appears in bathrooms and kitchens all over the world. Boring, right? Wrong. There’s a lot to be said for plain white tiles, and there’s a reason they’re so popular, the world over. And it’s all about the colour (or the lack of it). When you think of white, you think of pure. You think of untouched. You think of fresh. Thus, when it comes to refreshing and rejuvenating a dated bathroom or kitchen space, white should be the first thing you think of. It’s certainly the first thing a lot of interior designs think of. Strip out the dark, drab, dingy, and introduce white walls or floors to create a bright, refreshed atmosphere. 

Creating white surfaces in your home will not only help to make the room seem brighter and more inviting, but it will also help to make the space seem larger. It’s an optical illusion. A white wall seems further away. Think about the ceiling. We’ve been painting them white for centuries. Why? Because they become less noticeable, and a less noticeable ceiling instantly gives you more perspective head space. It works the same way with walls and floors. 

But won’t an all-white space seem rather plain, and void of character? No – not if you’re clever about it. Louisa Charlotte, our exclusive designer, suggests creating a blank white backdrop to a room, (or a blank ‘canvas’), and then building a colour scheme through the addition of accessories. For example, in a kitchen, if you want a passionate, fiery red scheme, you’ll choose a red toaster, red salt and pepper grinders, a red kettle, and a red chopping board. If you tire of the colour scheme after a year, do you need to decorate? No, of course not – you simply bung your accessories on Items For Sale on Facebook, and buy a new set in a different colour. Anything goes with white, that’s what’s so ingenious about this idea!
