Let’s face it: renovating a bathroom isn’t the most exciting project, especially if your budget isn’t generous enough to allow for major changes. With a bit of creativity, however, you can revamp your bathroom and make it look magazine-worthy without having to change everything. Now that makes you feel a bit excited, doesn’t it?
The tiles you choose can make or break the design of your bathroom. Most of the time, we’re quite conservative when choosing them – maybe because we know we can’t change them easily if we don’t like the result. Time to get out of your comfort zone and explore 7 brilliant and bold tile combinations that will inspire you to take your design game to the next level!
Amp up the drama with hexagonal patterns
Intricate hexagonal patterns are a definite eye-pleaser, especially if you stick to simple colour combinations, such as black and white. For an extra touch of glam, go all out on the details: a chandelier, golden fixtures and lush plants can make a huge difference.
Bold colours, beautiful bathroom
Most people stick to classic bathroom colours: blue, white, shades of green or greys. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t play with colours! A sunny yellow or pink backsplash can brighten up your bathroom – as long as you use it within reason or turn it into a statement wall.
Tiles and wallpapers
Usually it’s either or, but if you’re feeling bold you can pull off using both tiles and a chic wallpaper to really give your bathroom some personality. The tiles also keep the wallpaper out of splashing range so it’s also very practical.
Combine tile shapes
Subway tiles for the walls and diamond-shaped tiles for the floor? Why not! The trick here is to keep the visual cohesion through colour while also creating a playful combination of patterns. It takes quite a good eye for design to pull something like this off, but the results are worth the effort.
It’s all in the texture
Mosaic tiles and marble tiles are a match made in designer heaven! The colours exude warmth and give off an earthy feel, but there are also a few glam features such as the brass accents or the bronze statement piece on the wall.
Think outside the tiles
Using hardwood floors in a bathroom might seem like a risky venture, but not if you think outside the box. Combining tiles with wooden floors not only looks amazing, but it also serves the practical purpose of protecting the hardwood flooring from water damage. So you can have the best of both worlds.
The geometry of good design
An otherwise less-than-impressive bathtub area can be totally transformed by a combination of playful tiles. The retro effect of the contrasting shapes is hypnotising!
