What Bathroom Tile Style Should I Pick?

Picking out tiles for your new bathroom project is not so simple anymore. There is so much variety in design, shape, colour, and texture that it can be overwhelming. In this blog we focus on the finishes, colours, shapes, and patterns to help you pick out your new tiles.

Graphic tiles & patterns

Graphic, contemporary textures & colours

Whether on the floor or the wall patterned tiles are perfect to add character to any bathroom. Either in soft subtle hues or bold contrasting colours the intricate patterns will lure you in and capture your heart. This style really gives homeowners the chance to tap into their creative side. Create your own feature wall or add flare to the bathroom floor with some eccentric tiles.

Keep it neutral

Create a place to relax

Contemporary designs make big use of neutral colours and this remains the case for the biggest bathroom tile trends at the moment. For bathrooms that need a bit more brightness, white is perfect. The bathroom is built for relaxing and these colours reinforce this atmosphere. By being neutral, they allow the mind to stay calm and relax creating a sanctuary in the home. To ensure the bathroom doesn’t become lifeless, layer in different shades of neutral colours, textures and shapes to bring everything together in a creative way.

Natural shading and sophisticated aesthetics

Make your bathroom look clean & white, yet not lacking character with marble tiles.

Marble is a high-end material that is popular for its stunning luxurious beauty. To add an interesting twist, marble flooring that features large-scale patterns work especially well in large bathrooms. The floor essentially becomes a large piece of canvas where the natural beauty of the marble complements the interesting pattern embossed onto it. It adds a touch of luxury to any bathroom and is bound to dazzle.

Make it matt

Simple yet luxurious

The popularity of matte finish tiles continues this year and it's easy to see why. They feature a soft but powerful beauty–style that does not get too overwhelming. An advantage of matte tiles is that they do not show smudges and water marks as easily as glossy tiles. This makes them ideal for the bathroom floor, especially in busy bathrooms. The low sheen makes them easier to maintain. When installing matte finish tiles make sure there is enough lighting, both natural and artificial, as these tiles are not known for reflecting light.

Shaped tiles

Mixed, matched, but perfectly coordinated. Among our favourite ways to develop a modern-day mosaic appearance is by using different tile shapes. This method produces stunning geometric looks that range from bold to sophisticated. Whether it’s for your bathroom backsplash, a statement floor, or shower walls, differently shaped tiles will give instant character to your bathroom.
