Noble, chic and care-intensive: black tiles

With black tiles as a floor covering or as a wall cladding, a very elegant ambience can be created. Natural stone such as slate or granite bring along structures or textures. As an alternative, black, usually shiny, ceramic is often chosen.

A question of dosage

The color black is generally perceived as elegant and high quality, which is also the case with tiles. However, a large role is played by the dosage, which can quickly tip over into the gloom by too much. Add to this the effect of the light "swallowing", which transforms a decorative look into dominating darkness.

When using black tiles, the use is usually limited to individual areas of a room such as the floor, single walls or podiums and black and white combinations. For monochrome black tile surfaces both natural stones and tiles are chosen, for combinations with other colors such as the checkerboard pattern almost exclusively ceramic tiles.
