A Masterclass in Metallics

If you desire to add a touch of luxury to your home, then the choice of material and aesthetic is paramount to ensure success. Metallics are definitely the best way to create a classy atmosphere; gold, silver, copper, and bronze are fabulous for adding glamour and classical style. You aren’t just limited to these shades though; there are many contemporary options that are perfect if you desire a more unique interior. So let’s take a look at how you can successfully use metallic tiles in your interior design with our metallic masterclass.

Golden Glamour


There is nothing more glamorous than gold – it is statement-making, undeniably regal and can work anywhere in the home. The aesthetic of gold is natural, therefore it can be used successfully with many other colours, but which are the best?  Well here at Tilemart, we recommend the following combinations.

  • Black and Gold

Black and gold is a classic combination and yet it remains exceptionally edgy, meaning that it is perfect for the modern home. This contrasting combo is best used in the living room or the kitchen for a stand out look that will certainly impress your guests.

  • White and Gold

Another classic combination, yet with a completely different result; this combination will create a beautifully relaxing atmosphere which is wonderfully indulgent. This looks beautiful in the bathroom as it is reminiscent of the rich Roman and Greek bath houses of old.

  • Red and Gold

For a glamorous room that is incredible warming, the red and gold combination is simply perfect. It is soft-yet-powerful and bold – this style in your interior design is certain to impress your guests and make you feel like a superstar. Red and gold should be used in the dining room, kitchen or for an avant-garde bathroom design.

  • Navy Blue and Gold

Be inspired by the starry night sky and use deep night time navy blue with stand out gold. This will certainly create a unique aesthetic that can only be described as magical. Use this combination in the bathroom or living room to channel a sophisticated ambience into your home.

Sensational Silver


There’s no doubt about it, silver is sensational, and is the perfect choice if you’re looking to enhance the space in your home. Unlike gold, silver works best with pale shades and simplistic white. Silver speaks for itself, especially when you choose a glittering tile. We recommend that you use this beautiful colour in the bathroom as it is fresh, crisp and nothing short of fabulous! Use silver with white bathroom suites or chrome if you’re looking for the contemporary edge.

Shimmering Sheens


As we mentioned above, gold and silver is not your only option, especially if you’re looking for something a little different and contemporary. Instead choose dark tiles with an oily sheen such as our petrol mosaic tiles – this will certainly provide your home with something a little more unique! Of course, this type of statement-making tile should be a stand-alone feature as, well, it speaks for itself!
