6 Ways to Use Warm Hues in Your Tile Renovation

6 Ways to Use Warm Hues in Your Tile Renovation

Warm colors are known for evoking feelings of happiness, optimism and energy. We want to break the taboo that warm hues are meant for summer, because who doesn’t want to spread happiness year round? It’s no secret that we love deep hues of blue and cool shades of green but we have a special place in our hearts for a warm color palette consisting of dynamic reds, energetic oranges, and bright yellows. Here are 6 ways to use warm hues in your tile renovation...

1. Bright Yellows

Yellow represents freshness, happiness, and positivity. Our yellow color palette is a burst of sunshine in any setting.

We love it when businesses embrace color and The Bachelor Farmer Café is no exception. This delicious Minneapolis staple welcomes a bright and bold color palette. As much as we love yellow, we understand that it can also be distracting when used excessively. That’s why we suggest pops of yellow. Adding pops of yellow hues gives excitement to the overall design by mixing cool and warm tones. Get the full scoop on The Bachelor Farmer project in our blog “Behind the Bachelor Farmer Café Tile”

2. Vivid Oranges

The ultimate extrovert color – orange! Orange is the color of joy and enthusiasm. Our orange color palette is ideal for a bold, Mid-Century Modern look.

Our Northeast Minneapolis neighbors, Chowgirls Killer Catering wanted a bold look for their new company headquarters. And since we use any excuse to incorporate color into our tile, we were more than happy to oblige. Drawing inspiration from their sustainable standards, this project needed to reflect their values that drive their killer catering business. We landed on an orange-hued hexagon wall inspired by honeycomb. When choosing tile color, don’t be afraid to make a statement. Chowgirls Killer Catering is the quintessential example of how warm hues can add so much personality and charm to a space.

Burnt colors are known for evoking comfort and affection. Our burnt hue palette is the perfect way to bring a natural element to your home.

For those with earthy spirits, this burnt hue color palette is ideal for a welcoming environment with casual elegance. From terra-cotta floors to caramel farmhouse backsplashes, these cozy colors are timeless and trendy. When it comes to burnt orange hues, we recommend Craftsman Squares. Inspired by natural materials and rustic landscapes, our Large Craftsman Squares will add comfort and warmth to any space.

4. Bright Reds

Daring and bold, bright reds demand attention. It’s a staple accent color that brings vibrancy and stimulation.

Bright reds are powerful and invigorating when used with care. Some of our favorite contemporary spaces mix vibrant reds with cooler tones to give the finished look a depth that is unmatched. Using more than one glaze color balances each color to give it an overall appealing look. We believe in giving our customers creative freedom when it comes to choosing glaze colors regardless of their budget. We want our customers to love their tile renovation and not feel limited due to pricing. That's why there's no additional cost for adding colors to your design!

5. Rustic Reds

Rustic reds are deep hues of reddish browns - think burgundy, umber, and rust. Our palette of earthen reds is inviting and sophisticated.

While bright hues of red are invigorating, subdued shades are sophisticated. Rustic reds draw attention without being overwhelming. With these deep warm hues, more is always more. We love a hexagon floor to show off this deep red color palette. With subtle variation and rich depth, enter your home in style.

Last but certainly not least – pinks! With Living Coral being Pantone’s color of the year, it’s no surprise that pink is showing up everywhere in the design world.
