Create a bathroom to be proud of
Your bathroom is an important part of the home and as such should be a room you are proud to show off just as much as any other part of the house. But in our attempts to make a bathroom functional they have a tendency to look a little lifeless and clinical.
Creating a bathroom that is not only stylish but also well-designed and functional therefore is a balancing act, and the first step toward adding function and achieving your desired look is by installing beautiful wall and floor tiles. So, here are a few ideas to ensure you bathroom looks lively rather than lifeless…
Grey is an enduring colour that works just as well as a bathroom tile as it does for painted walls. It’s calming, neutral and sophisticated, and is not only a versatile alternative to, but also a warming complement to white. Reverse Metro Dark Grey Gloss add real vigour to the bathroom.
Marble tiles just scream luxury. A cool, classic, five-star look that is not only the domain of luxury hotel bathrooms but can live quite unpretentiously in our own homes. Our Marble Estatuario marble effect range offers a classic and timeless style.
The trend for patterned tiles looks set to stick around. They can add colour, pattern and a touch of personality in this functional space. Many are inspired by Victorian or Moroccan designs that have been around for centuries. If you want to add life to a conventional white suite, patterned tiles are a perfect way to do it. Our beautiful and exotic Valentino tile series, which uses geometric pattern and comes in six designs is a must-see.
Mosaic tiles may have lost their popularity a little in recent years but there is no denying that they still look amazing in bathrooms, especially when you consider some of the more glittering, rich, jewel-like colours such as our Qubic Graphito Glass mosaic, a particular favourite.
Metro tiles still somehow manage to appear modern. They give that utility chic, timelessness and retro feel all in one. Even the neutral white looks interesting, and using coloured grout gives them extra definition. Our Edge range of metro tiles is simple but beautiful.
Slate is smart, durable and naturally good looking. More likely seen on floors, but its charcoal tones also look interesting on walls, creating a cocooning effect. Our Mont Blanc multi is slate effect has the beautiful natural tones of natural slate.
There is nothing more warming and life-giving that shades of wood in the bathroom. Real wood is not the best material for the bathroom floor without thorough sealing but wood effect tiles give the desired look but with the practicality too. Our Vancouver Country Dark Wood Effect porcelain tile is definitely one to consider.
