Style guide: monochrome bathroom floor and wall tiles

When it comes to styling your bathroom, monochrome floor and wall tiles are chic, effortless and sophisticated.

Timeless and neutral monochrome floor and wall tiles are less likely to fall out of favour or look dated and cover so many different styles and eras, from traditional and retro through to modern and minimal.

Here we talk through various different ways to incorporate black, white and shades of grey in a bathroom scheme.

Modern black floor and wall tiles

Achieve the sought-after boutique hotel style with moody and sophisticated black or dark grey large format floor and wall tiles which highlight and contrast with a crisp white bathroom suite; picture a statement-making freestanding bath surrounded by dark grey tiles, or an opulent walk-in shower lined with black wall tiles.

Embrace tradition with black and white floor or wall tiles

Chequerboard floor tiles, laid in alternating diamond patterns of white and black, are part of a retro look that has endured and can be styled in so many different ways.

Patterned black and white floor or wall tiles with geometric designs are a classic Victorian staple; reference your home’s authentic heritage, or add character to a newer home, by these adding monochrome products.

Glossy white vintage-style metro wall tiles with bevelled edges are also exceptionally popular due to their timeless appeal and versatility.

Monochrome wall tiles for a wet room or ensuite

In a compact area white tiles will make a bathroom feel larger and more spacious but black or grey wall tiles can be used to define a shower space or other feature to add depth and dimension.

Shades of grey wall tiles

As an interior colour, grey has grown in popularity in the last few years and shows no signs of slowing. From palest dove to stormy slate, grey is a neutral with a difference; unlike beige or stone, grey wall tiles look fresh, dramatic and clean.

Mosaic wall tiles

Iridescent white glass wall tiles will add texture whilst reflecting light and giving a greater feeling of space in smaller bathrooms which lack natural light; mosaic wall tiles can be used to add a spa-like feel to a bathroom, highlight display recesses in walls or emphasise a shower, bath or sink area.

Installing monochrome floor and wall tiles

There are so many different looks which can be achieved with monochrome floor and wall tiles; installation methods and grouting will make a significant difference; it’s worth considering the impact of elements such as grout colour and how the tiles are laid. For example, you might wish to utilise a contrasting grout colour, such as dark grey with white metro wall tiles; whereas large format grey tiles with rectified edges can be laid with narrower grout lines and matching grey grout to create a sleek and seamless look.

A monochrome scheme means that you can also play with scale and tile dimensions; try pairing small hexagonal mosaic wall tiles with large format floor tiles.
