There are many decisions involved in the process of choosing tiles. Color, size, and shape are obvious factors to consider, but an often overlooked tile characteristic is a matt or gloss finish. This may seem like an easy decision, as gloss tiles are an extremely popular choice for homeowners, but this significant factor can make a huge difference to the feel and maintenance of any room.
Gloss tiles can make even the smallest of rooms appear larger. The outcome is similar to that of adding a mirror to a room. The light reflection opens up the space and tricks the eye into making the room appear wider and more open than it actually is. As a result, gloss tiles are an excellent design choice for bathrooms, ‘box rooms’, and hallways, which are typically smaller and narrower.
For a room to feel lighter and brighter, gloss tiles are the go-to. In spaces with low amounts of natural light, gloss tiles maximize this small amount by bouncing light back and forth around the space. A great option for small downstairs bathrooms.
Extremely easy to clean and maintain, the smooth nature of the glossy surfaces need only a simple wipe-down for them to sparkle. This is one of the many reasons as to why gloss tiles are a popular choice for messy spaces, such as kitchen backsplashes and shower walls.
