How to combine warm and cold tones in your home

Take a look at our suggestions, including grey porcelain tiles mixed with sandy hues, stone-inspired floor tiles against blue walls, and natural wood blended with marble-look wall tiles.

Colour defines the personality, meaning and order of a space. Decorating your home in a blend of warm and cold tones can give you very different results ranging from orderly to eclectic. It all depends on how you use the colours and which elements you place in each zone. Do warmer tones work with colder, more neutral colours? Next let’s take a look at some designs featuring natural collections by PORCELANOSA Group.

Living rooms decorated in warm and cold tones

Designing a living room in shades of grey, black, sand or with wood accents, will make your room – and overall décor scheme – feel more sophisticated. Collections like Prada Acero (HIGHKER®) by PORCELANOSA or Astana Grey, Aged Clay or Calacatta Green (XTONE®, Urbatek) make the perfect partners for homes seeking an update on the classic aesthetic by blending colours and textures.

Pairing large format marble-inspired XTONE® tiles with velvety textiles, globe floor lamps and beige geometric armchairs are some ideas to think about. If you’d like your floor and wall tiles to follow the same aesthetic line, you can strengthen the feel of natural light by playing around with different shades of grey or brown. One example would be to combine Skins Buckingham Taupe wallpaper by L’ac with black sofas, grey cushions or wooden coffee tables.

More natural bedrooms and bathrooms

To give your bedroom a warm feel, you could clad the walls in the sintered mineral compact Calacatta Green, Skins wallpaper by L’ac, and the firm’s natural parquet flooring or PAR-KER® ceramic flooring by PORCELANOSA. In the bathroom, you could create an uninterrupted aesthetic by using large format Viola Blue Silk (XTONE) on the walls and floor, in combination with round mirrors, floor-to-ceiling glass screens or oval natural stone washbasins. Another monochrome option would be to use Prada Acero (HIGHKER®) mosaic wall tiles and extend the look to floor level with floor tiles from the same collection.

If you want to inject some warmth into a white bathroom design, the marble-look Carrara Blanco range (PORCELANOSA) works well with black Round taps by Noken and Tono toilets, also from the brand.
Or you could combine blue ceramic tiles like Malaga Aqua or Vetri Blu (new for 2021 from Porcelanosa) with a Noken Tono bath, elevating the exclusive look of the elements with decorative profiles. Using Pro-Part and Pro-Mate decorative profiles from Butech’s Metal and Texture collections is a sure way of elevating that exclusive look. If you’d like to give your bathroom an infinite, uninterrupted feel, you could go for a Butech Shower Deck waterproof shower tray to unify your floor tiles and shower area.

Kitchens in warm and cold tones

You can use warm and cold tones to up the brightness levels in your kitchen, for example the E5.00 Ocean Blue Brillo model by Gamadecor combined with Krion® Lux. The mineral compact is suitable for designing furniture and worktops, or for use on walls, thanks to its excellent resistance, almost zero porosity and bacteriostatic nature.
