Bathroom Tile Inspiration
In addition to classic neutral shades bathroom wall tiles are available in a wide range of striking bold colours which can be a defining feature in your bathroom and add a pop of colour to your home. Selecting contrasting or complementary grout colours can also transform the finished look.
Matt or Glossy
Glossy or matt wall tiles are both great options for a bathroom. Glossy tiles can make a bathroom feel brighter and more spacious as they reflect the light back into the room. Matt tiles are easier to maintain on a daily basis as they do not show streaks or water marks as easily.
Laying Pattern & Shapes
Herringbone laying pattern has become a classic style when fitting floor tiles but this style also looks amazing when used on walls as a splashback or as an entire feature wall. Considering using one of the more brick or hexagonal tile shapes to create a design feature in your bathroom - these look great either on the floor or on the walls.
Wall tiles have the freedom of design to feature 3D structures which add another tactile dimension. The nature of these tiles is to create endless variation through the interplay of light and shadow throughout the day while also looking intriguing with the use of clever bathroom lighting.
The natural look of wood is appealing in bathrooms and wood look tiles provide the opportunity to feature wood in your design without the risk of damage in a humid bathroom environment. Wood is often considered exclusively for floors but these fantastic ranges from Mirage and Ragno show how amazing wood can look on walls too particularly when combines with other styles and colours such as marble or metallic tiles. In addition to being water resistant tiles are also more durable, easy to clean and excellent conductor for underfloor heating.
Black & White
Either colour alone or in a classic combination - black and white bathrooms are an enduringly popular choice that can be strikingly simple or full of character.
Selecting contrasting or complementary grout colours can also transform the finished look.
Pattern tiles can add vivid colour and drama to any bathroom or can be a more subtle in character with muted tones and a neutral colour palate.
Tiles can be used as to create zones in the bathroom or create a design feature. Shower areas or wet rooms look great with a feature tile, shower niches or wall shelves look great when accentuated by a distinctive tile. A feature tile surrounding your bathtub or over your vanity unit or sink can also look great.
