Dining Table and Chair Space
|Experts Say||Interior designs advice to have lots of space for guests and customers to walk freely, especially around the dining table.
Your dining furniture, carpets, curtains, wall paintings, and other items should match your floor and wall tiles.
|Colour Combination||If you desire a peaceful environment for family dinners, then light coloured and natural tiling is recommended.
Best colours are beige, cream, white, and faded silver.
For a hotel or lavish modernised home or apartment, then darker tiles are better – shiny and decorated black tiles or silver and grey stoneware tiles.
|Effect and Look||If you have an entertaining personality, then go for stylish shiny gloss porcelain tiles.
Most hotels, restaurants, and food shops have marble or fine stone porcelain tiles for their floors.
Many stores and homes now adopt wood-look ceramic porcelain tiles for their floors and walls. Wooden dining tables and chairs look good on these designs.
|Shape and Size||Larger square-shaped tiles that are neutral or comfortable to the eye or even dazzling ceramic tiles are recommended.|
Drink Bar and Cocktails
|Experts Say||An entertaining appeal should be created with a lively energetic mood.|
|Colour Combination||Many restaurants, hotels, bars, and entertainment clubs as well as tourist destinations in Colombo, Negombo, and other parts of Sri Lanka install black tiling with white or dark beige wall tiles.
However, we recommend beige, salmon, coral, light pink, reddish-brown, or silver colours to be considered and to match it with your furniture.
|Effect and Look||For outdoor dining and drink areas, then terracotta effect Italian tiles are effective as they blend in with the natural beauty of sand, trees, water, grass, or pebbles.|
|Shape and Size||Experiment with tile sizes as this space can be used to be a fun zone in your building, be it residential, commercial, or even industrial.
Large rectangular floor tiles with smaller hexagon, round circular, or rhombus wall tiles will be a great match.
Restaurant Welcome and House Guest Area
|Experts Say||Both young and old should feel welcome and the room should look comfortable and clean.
Sunlight coming in from outside can be used to create a magical effect if Italian marble tiles are used.
|Colour Combination||Many hotels, cafés, and food eateries or shops at supermarkets, stadiums, universities, schools, hospitals, and airports have a mix of dark and medium to light tiling.
Cream, beige, silvery grey, lavender, and off-white are amazing colours for a light-shaded dining floor.
Dark grey and black with a mixture of lighter tiles can also be used.
|Effect and Look||A dark horse style with black marble, metallic, stone, or concrete effect tiling can be used.
For light or medium coloured ceramic porcelain, go for cream, reddish, or earthy natural coloured terracotta or fabric.
|Shape and Size||Rectangular large tiles are now in trend but many architects recommend larger squared shaped Italian ceramic porcelain tiles.|
Food Stores, Utensils and Cabinets
|Experts Say||A clean white or bright look for your food storage will show a hygienic environment to your customers and guests.|
|Colour Combination||Designers will consistently recommend pure white floors and walls for food and equipment spaces but some prefer silver or grey tiles with glossy surfaces as these match the exterior appearance of your dining, cooking, serving or kitchen equipment.|
|Effect and Look||Granite, metallic, or stone effect porcelain tiles are recommended as these not only look beautiful but are also easy to clean.
Luxury marble tiles are also popular as they are also of high quality and creates a royal look.
|Shape and Size||You might have seen that many of these dining equipment and food serving rooms have smaller white or faded light coloured tiles for their background walls.
The floors can be large or standard-sized square or rhombus tiles.
