For a sleek and modern design, you can’t beat ceramic tile. Tile comes in a wide variety of styles, making it the perfect material for both floors and walls. For example, the tiles on the floor in this room are dark, with a soft texture. This reduces the amount of light reflected, softening the harshness of electric lighting. The tile on the walls plays a similar role, brightening when the light hits it without reflection. Ceramic tile like this pairs well with mirrors or other items that reflect, letting the shine and shimmer of your furniture and decorations project light.
