Go for different shades of wood look tiles

Wooden flooring is available in different shades and styles. Similarly, wooden tiles are also available in different shades. You can use light coloured walls and darker shade tiles for floors. This way you will not only give an aesthetic touch to your decor but also make it look way more natural just like wooden interiors.

Places where you can use darker floor tiles

Darker shade tiles can give a warm and classy look to the place. Sometimes it becomes hard to decide where we can creatively lay dark floors with light walls. You can club the dark floor tiles with light wall tiles and can lay them in various areas, including the bathroom, kitchen, living room and even exterior areas. If you use light coloured bathroom floor tiles with darker shade bathroom wall tiles, then it might make your bathroom appear smaller. 

Dark coloured floors and light coloured walls can make a bold appearance and, therefore, it is important to club the tiles accordingly. So go ahead and make your space look attractive and classy.
