Bathrooms have been getting a make-over of late: no longer are they purely functional rooms; they are now just as much a design statement as the rest of your home. But how can you make your bathroom stand out from the crowd? It is, after all, one of the main rooms in your home which guests and visitors will get to see – so why not show it off? Here's how to use tile trends, for both wall and floor tiles, to make your bathroom look fabulous:
Eclectic styles make for chic tiling trends: mixing different sizes and patterns is an on- trend way of jazzing up your bathroom. If a portion of your bathroom is already tiled to your liking, but perhaps you would like to improve or change the overall look, this is a great way of leaving the old tiles and mixing it up by adding new tiles. For example, small mosaic strip tiles look great with large scale ceramic tiles in a contrasting colour; if you've already got ceramic tiles in place that you love, add a border of strip tiles to change the overall feel of your bathroom.
Sharp, geometric shaped tiles will be big in 2013. Often laid using two or three different colours in one setting to show the shapes off to their best advantage, geometric styles are available in both ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles. This type of tile creates an amazing overall visual effect, to give a luxurious look and feel to any bathroom.
Natural stone is a great choice for the bathroom, and creates the feel of an upmarket spa. Stone tiles naturally create a feeling of warmth and homeliness due to their neutral tones, and their durability and timelessness means they will offer luxury that lasts a lifetime. Both travertine and limestone tiles are great choices for bathroom wall and floor tiles, and are bang on trend.
Although this look may feel a little bit unconventional, and is perhaps only for the brave, it gives an amazing overall visual effect to a bathroom. Three dimensional ceramic tiles and porcelain tiles feature raised areas, adding texture and a welcoming feel with just enough of a hint of the 1980s to still be very much in fashion.
If you've been inspired to revamp your bathroom, why not let the Art of Living fuel that inspiration? The Ceramic Tile Warehouse has over one million tiles in stock at any one time, so you're sure to find the right wall and floor tiles to suit your taste. And don't forget you can also find beautiful natural stone at the Stone Gallery, and bathroom interiors at Park Street Interiors – everything you need in one group of home décor companies. Now all you need to do is decide whether you're brave enough for the three dimensional tiles!
