All the colours of ceramic: how to choose the perfect colour scheme

The ultimate guide to creating the perfect colour scheme for your interior design project

Interior design is an art form that transforms spaces
into inviting, functional and aesthetically pleasing environments.

The choice of colours plays a crucial role in this creative process, and ceramic provides a wide range of options when it comes to floor and wall tiles. In this article, we will explore the process of creating a harmonious and appealing colour scheme for your interior design project. We’ll focus on trendy colours and the tile effects that are currently making waves in the world of interior design.

How to create a harmonious and appealing colour palette

Understanding colour theory is the basis for creating a compelling and impactful scheme. In interior design, it is essential to understand how colours interact and influence the mood and ambience of a room.

Trendy colours like Sage, Chalkboard, Navy Blue, Petroleum Green, Smoky Grey and Ivory are excellent choices for a contemporary and elegant look, especially if they are as intense and vibrant as those in the new GLIM collection. These glazed porcelain stoneware bricks are hyper-coloured, textured and glossy, emitting an “energetic” vibe that can enhance rooms with unique, shimmering colours. Suitable for both public spaces and homes, walls are adorned with vibrant colours, offering bold combinations that illuminate interiors with unparalleled style.

Finally, achieving a harmonious colour scheme entails selecting a core range of tones and shades that blend with each other.

For example, Smoky Grey and Petroleum Green create a sophisticated base, which goes well with a touch of Red for a vibrant pop of colour. This can be introduced via accessories, fabrics, furniture, or even through the ceramic itself, such as GLIM’s Red Heart!

While neutral tones such as Ivory, Beige and Icy White create a harmonious balance, adding a touch of sophistication and modernity to your interior design project.

Colours and effects: the best ceramic combinations

Selecting ceramic wall and floor tiles goes beyond colour; the effect also plays a crucial role. As we have already seen, Glossy bricks create a contemporary and dynamic look, making them ideal for open spaces, modern homes, workplaces and for adding depth to smaller rooms.

Current interior design trends also include onyx-effect wall and floor tiles, which add a touch of luxury and elegance and capture light in a distinctive manner. FAP has embraced this trend with its GEMME, collection. These porcelain stoneware slabs celebrate light, featuring graceful and elegant colours that illuminate and expand spaces visually. 

The GEMME colour palette is soft and ethereal, featuring shades like
Sky Blue, Pink, Mint Green, Beige and White!

Transforming your space into an oasis of beauty and functionality

GLIM also offers a vibrant range of colours that joyfully reinterpret Venetian terrazzo-effect floor tiles, which are made livelier and more modern through carefully selected colours like Gemme Blue, Gemme Pink, Gemme Sage, Gemme Beige and Gemme White! This delightful blend of colours and ceramic effects can also be applied to walls or used as a unique flooring option for bathrooms.

Choosing a harmonious and appealing colour scheme by combining trendy shades with carefully selected ceramic effects allows you to transform your space into an oasis of beauty and functionality. This transformation is achievable due to the practicality and superior performance of ceramic materials.

Colour scheme: online applications and direct experience

As we have already seen, selecting colours for an interior design project is crucial in creating a space that mirrors your unique style and personality. So, how do you find the perfect combination?

Utilising online resources like Adobe’s Colour Wheel can be helpful to create the perfect colour scheme. This tool enables you to explore diverse colour combinations, draw inspiration from existing schemes or reinforce your own creative ideas.

Of course, there’s no substitute for hands-on experience and the advice of seasoned professionals who can assist you in choosing the most suitable solutions, even in technical terms. They give you the opportunity to touch ceramic samples and tiles, providing an understanding of how colours and effects manifest in real life.

Visiting the showroom of a ceramic retailer can be incredibly inspiring, sparking creativity and providing new ideas for your interior design project.
