Tile Style: The Secret to Making Ceramic Tile Look Expensive

February 23, 2018

Creating a space that is luxurious but doesn’t break the budget is everyone’s dream. MSI’s expansive inventory of slabs, floor and wall tile, and mosaics are available in every price range. Our affordable budget-friendly tiles can create a luxurious and sophisticated space; the secret to designing a luxury bathroom for less is to carefully prioritize the budget, and know where to splurge. It is a delicate balance, but the best advice is to spend more on the permanent features like cabinetry and flooring, and less on accessories and lighting. 

Using a neutral color palette is one of the ways to make any tile look more expensive. Soothing tones that evoke relaxation and a sense of luxury have timeless appeal. In this beautiful bathroom, wood look ceramic tile is used to bring a subtle texture and grounding tone to this dreamy bathroom. Cabinetry finished in a lighter tone, along with the walls, makes the floor tile and the shower tile the star of this space.
