5 Ways to make your bathroom tiling special

A bathroom can be one of the biggest selling points of a house so taking extra care when it comes to designing it and paying attention to all those little details can make all the difference. Whether you decide on tiles for just the walls or both walls and floor the tiles that you do choose can have a huge impact on the overall appearance of the room, so you should consider all your options carefully before making a final decision. Tiles are a modern and very practical choice for a bathroom, they offer an easy clean, hygienic surface that is not just visually stunning but also hard wearing and easy to maintain.

If you are looking for clever ways to make your bathroom tiling special, then here are five great design ideas:

Colour Blocking

Colour blocking is one of the big fashion trends of the moment and involves taking a few bold colours, often from opposite sides of the colour wheel, and putting them together to create a very striking look. If you are not a fan of bright colours then Black and white porcelain tiles together make a bold and somewhat more traditional colour blocking scheme.

Mosaic Tiles

Mosaic tiles are a great way of adding a really vibrant splash of colour to the clean lines of a more neutral coloured wall. They allow you to define a colour scheme without having to add one solid colour to the room. Each tile of mosaic pieces often contains a variety of colours; these can be shades of the same colour or even different colours. The effect they produce can be very striking. It is also possible to get glass mosaic tiles which can create a real feature in your bathroom.

Designer Tiles

If you want to create that extra wow factor with the tiles that you use in your bathroom, then designer tiles may well be the answer you are looking for. There are some fantastic ranges available on the market from designer like Philippe Starck and Versace tiles. High quality floor and wall tiles that offer an air of sophisticated luxury with their smooth clean lines and simple elegant colours.

Wall to Wall Tiles

The effect created when wall to wall tiles are used in a bathroom is very stylish, whether you opt for separate colours for the floor and walls or a single tile that has an element of shading to it the results can be visually stunning. Bold contrasts like black or dark grey teamed with a much paler grey or even white can make a very traditional style bathroom look very modern.

Natural Stone

Timeless natural stone tiles can create the perfect look for any bathroom. Whether you choose marble, limestone or a different natural stone not only will you get the choice of a stunning range of natural shades but you will also get the amazing patterns that occur naturally in any of these stones which could help you achieve that effortlessly elegant bathroom of your dreams.

Whether you choose porcelain tiles for colour blocking or Versace tiles for the wow factor, your bathroom is sure to look amazing.
