How to match the metallic effect stoneware?
Metalized effect tiles manage to decorate your home without too much effort, thanks to their beautiful shades and their ability to reflect light. However, if you want to make the most of their aesthetic potential to make your rooms unique, we provide some decorating tips that will help you totally enhance iron or metal effect stoneware.
Neutral colors and minimal style furniture
To enhance the metal-effect porcelain stoneware you can choose neutral colors for your home walls, such as white, light gray or beige if your design footprint tends to be minimalist. By reducing the number of pieces of furniture you will also be able to make the metal effect the absolute star!
Metal details to recall tiles
Design accessories such as lamps, mirrors and doorknobs can be key elements that connect perfectly with the effect you choose for your metallic tiles because they create a sense of continuity and consistency, whether on a floor or a wall.
Contrasting textures to balance the environment
Metal-effect porcelain tile tends to be very hard visually, iron and metal being raw, industrial materials. How can you intervene by trying to soften and balance the feel? By playing with textures and fabrics that visually communicate the opposite feeling!
Introducing soft, long-pile carpets, fluffy pillows and fluffy curtains that help soften the lines can be a good strategy.
Contrast metal and natural wood effect
The interplay of contrasts, as we have just seen, can prove to be a really good choice to highlight the metal effect floor. By juxtaposing natural wood furniture elements, a few plants or green elements that echo nature and the earth, you can warm up the room considerably, creating a truly unique atmosphere.
Light play and strategic lighting
Have you chosen metal effect wall coverings? As we have seen, this is an apt choice if you want to create trendy details in our rooms. The metal effect possesses the great plus of reflecting light independently, creating a beautiful illuminating effect on the wall.
But if we wanted to push this feature, accentuating its distinctiveness, we could always think of strategically illuminating the tiles with directed spotlights to create really impressive light spots!
Decoration and color to environments
To enhance metal effect tiles you can consider playing with details, color and art. Modern artwork or distinctive photography prints can really help make your rooms a real treat. Not only that, you can also play with color through design components: a colorful sofa, a distinctive table, an extravagant rug. Set your imagination free!
