How to include patterned tiles in your bathroom
One of the most popular ideas is to create a feature wall behind your bath or basin. Or, you can opt for a statement floor, but paint the walls in a complementing colour to balance it out.
A more creative way of embracing patterned tiles is by zoning your space. Stick to one tile shape and pattern to section off and spice up your shower area.
Team bath? Then, choose hexagonal tiles, decorated with bold prints, to make a statement around your freestanding tub – simply lay the tiles in a fun pattern and also take them up the wall for a bold look.
Printed mural tiles are another great way of adding interest and colour to your bathroom. You can bring an exotic touch to your scheme through tropical patterns or create a dreamy backdrop for a bubbly soak with the help of nature-inspired panels.
If you’re not ready to fully commit to a maximalist bathroom scheme, then a compact downstairs loo is ideal for experimenting with bold wall and floor coverings. Renovating your interiors is all about letting your creativity flow and making spaces that reflect your personality, so have fun with it!
