It is a known fact that colours, especially the colour of the flooring, has a profound influence on home decor. Let us understand how it has the potential to play a central role in setting the décor and tone of the entire space.
Floor colour has the ability to create the required look and feel of a room, be it the natural ambience or the minimalistic or royal look. It is scientifically proven that colours affect our brain functioning and evoke different emotions in us. Use of coloured tiles on floor and wall is a unique way to bring vivid imaginations to life and is an opportunity to play with colours inside the house. Homeowners and architects are realizing this fact and utilizing it to enhance the overall look of every space in the house. They are experimenting with bold and playful colour schemes instead of conventional shades. Some of the colour combinations and palettes that are capturing everyone’s interest are:
Blue-Green - Blue and green are very calming colours and are catching attention as a preferred colour. They have the ability to make you feel relaxed and serene. They evoke a sense of being connected with nature.
Black-Grey – Usage of natural stones eg. marble or kadappa has been there for some time, however, what is interesting is the usage of these colour tiles. Black and grey tiles lend a sense of sophistication and class to any space that they are laid upon. Their versatile usage makes them suitable for any space inside or outside the house.
Copper-Brown - Earthy colours such as brown and copper give us a sense of being connected to the soil. They are the perfect blend of elegance and relaxation, which is why they are a popular choice for spaces such as living rooms and foyers.
