How to choose the right shape of your ceramic tile covering

In the world of interior design, every detail counts. Choosing the shape of ceramic tiles can make the difference between an ordinary room and an extraordinary one. When it comes to designing unique and eye-catching spaces, it is essential to carefully consider the shape of the tiles and how it will affect the overall look and feel of the room. In this article, we will explore some key factors to consider when choosing porcelain tile shapes, and take a look at the many shapes found in Tonalite’s collections.

Some factors to consider when choosing shape

The shape of tiles can greatly influence the style and atmosphere of a room. For example, rectangular tiles can create a visually elongated feel, ideal for narrow spaces or to create a sense of movement. In contrast, square tiles can give a more traditional and uniform look. More unusual shapes such as those in the Arrow or Trapez collections can give personality and strongly characterize a project.

Another key point to consider is the size of the space where the tiles will be installed; this will also influence the choice of shape. In larger spaces, it is possible to experiment with larger and more complex shapes, while in smaller spaces it is advisable to opt for smaller and simpler shapes to avoid visually overloading the room.


Finally, it is important to consider the functionality and use of different tile shapes. For example, rectangular or herringbone tiles can be more difficult to cut and install than square tiles, so it is important to assess the complexity of installation before making a final choice.
