Bathroom Tile Ideas from Walls and Floors
The bathroom. It’s a multi-functional room, when you think about it. Whether we’re having a quick rinse in the shower, a relaxing bathe in the tub, or a pampering session in front of the mirror, we spend a lot of time in the bathroom. It’s also a room that your guests are likely to visit. Therefore it’s crucial that the room looks good. What better way to bring a little glamour to a room than with tiles?
Tiles have always gone hand in hand with the bathroom; probably because they’re mostly waterproof, and very easy to clean. Traditionally, people tend to go for a plain white look when dressing up the bathroom or ensuite. But that simply doesn’t have to be the case anymore. There are a whole host of unique bathroom tiles to choose from. From the chic and contemporary, through to the stylish and natural.
The power of décor tiles
So what is a décor tile? It’s an artistic feature tile with a stylish and eye-catching design. They’re transforming the look of bathrooms up and down the nation, and invading the homes of all your favourite celebs.
The Louisa Charlotte Collection is jam-packed full of stunning décor pieces. A casing example is the room-stealing Orleans selection. A blend of sharp, captivating mosaic tiles and crisp floral displays, these décor tiles will add a stylish, exclusive feel to your bathroom. The same could be said for the gorgeous Sologne Tiles. Part of the same designer collection, they have unique circular patterns to make your walls really stand out.
Louisa Charlotte isn’t the only designer with her finger in the décor pie. Laura Ashley have turned their talented hand to décor tiles, too. Their striking Isadore range features a hypnotic black and white floral design; guaranteed to impress your guests, and collect a few compliments amongst your friends.
Think safety, think anti-slip
It’s no surprise that bathroom floors get awfully wet; with all that stepping in and out of the shower cubicle, and splashing about in the tub. That’s why it’s always a fantastic idea to introduce some anti-slip tiles. They have a coarse, gripping surface for added safety. They’re a great way of giving you peace of mind when you have children or the elderly using your bathroom. You don’t have to worry about nasty falls.
Natural stone tiles often make for fantastic anti-slip tiles. The warped, textured surfaces that have developed over hundreds of years make for the perfect natural grip! Slate is a chic and stylish choice.
Certain mosaic tiles also have anti-slip finishes. Check the description to make sure you’re choosing the right one. Mosaics are a great way of bringing a bit of style into the bathroom or a wet room. They’re modern and they catch the eye!
