Tiles are one of the most widely-used materials in bathroom design. They are available in myriad designs, sizes, colours, shapes and finishes; and if you like you can also get custom-designed tiles to match the ambience and styling of your home. In addition, they are easy to maintain, resistant to wear and water, steam and moisture, which make them perfect for bathroom spaces.
While the wide variety is a boon for creative and discerning custom home owners, it can also make choosing the right luxury bathroom wall tiling a little confusing. Take a look at these stunning tiled bathroom design concepts to help you decide which styling suits your luxury bathroom requirements best.
#1 Mix and match
If you want to add an element of pattern without actually going overboard with the concept, consider a mix of decorative and plain tiles. You can jazz up plain grey or white subway tiles by installing a unique design to recessed spaces in your bathroom. This type of a subtle colour palate helps in creating a quiet elegance that can blend in well with various design concepts. If you prefer, you can also use contrasting colours to create drama in your bathroom.
#2 Herringbone style
There was a time when subway tiles were used only when homeowners were working on a tight bathroom renovation budget, and these became a very cost-effective and versatile option. But these unassuming tiles have made a stupendous comeback and are now a major trend in custom bathroom design. If you like something more fancy, you can use custom designed subway tiles but in a herringbone pattern; this works very well with monochrome patterned tiles fitted in the shower stall or bathtub areas.
#3 Think out of the box
If you want your bathroom to look unique and stand out from the crowd, you need to think out-of-the-box with reference to the shapes of the tiles. You don’t have to stick to traditional rectangular or square-shaped tiles and can use hexagonal or octagonal ones to create a very arresting look in your bathroom spaces. These tiles can be used in minimalist-style bathroom with rose gold fixtures with some pastel colours on the flooring; this creates a striking effect without being overpowering.
#4 The spa effect
You can give your bathroom areas a spa-like effect by using tiles with a textured, natural look. Use tiles of the same colour, both on the floors and walls, but break the monotony by using tiles of varying sizes and shapes. Use larger tiles on the floor and create a brickwork effect on the walls. A herringbone design can be used on the shower and bath area flooring. The only deviation from the theme can be a darker strip of tiles all along the top of your shower area that ties in well with the shower fitting, to create a relaxing and sophisticated atmosphere.
#5 Marble is the way to go
This natural stone can add the wow factor to your bathroom. If you like simple features like white sinks, they can be contrasted with white and grey floor and wall tiles. This effect looks luxurious and simple all at once.
#6 Shimmer and shine
If you want to add some glamour to your bathroom, install iridescent mosaic tiles; dark flooring with traditional styled shutters and panelling can balance out the look of the space yet highlight these shimmering features in your bathroom.
