Bathroom tiles come in a variety of shapes, colours, designs and styles and it's often a long process making the decision to choose the one that is right for your bathroom. A good tile design will brighten of a wall and add real character, instantly, to the applied area. Walls, floors, baths, furniture and even cupboards- let's have a closer look at some of the most interesting and attractive applications of this surface in the bathroom.
Feeling the need to give your bathroom a seaside mood? Applying this tile design to any surface will give you this effect; without question. This unique tile design from ShellShock Designs is crafted from a freshwater Chinese lake, Poyang; no two being exactly the same due to the individuality of the shells farmed. This type of tile can also come in a variety of backings to suit the various surfaces it can be mounted on and the environment it's placed in.
Like its sister product, above, this interweave convex design also would be a welcome surface for anyone wishing to give their bathroom that seaside feel. But why stop there? This tile would also suit a bar or club very well or even in an hotel foyer.
Bespoke tiles from Maria Starling are obvious but not offensive; we find. A nice Mediterranean fusion that will be sure to give your home that feeling. Solid, interlinking patterns made from dyed cement and individually hand crafted, these tiles are something to look out for.
A great way to personalise a piece of old furniture is to give it a bit of a make over. In this case Crafted Tiles have converted this old night stand into a useful piece of bathroom storage furniture. Minimal effort and maximum results.
A concrete finish wet room with a tile overlay in the shower area from LCDA. Here we find that the tiling helps to break up, what could otherwise be, a monotonous and fairly featureless design; instead we see the uneven, pattern lay of the tiles fill up the far end of the room with a breath of style.
For those bathrooms with one or two strange angles in the wall (like many of us have), tiling with regular sized tiles can be problematic. Therefore, to counter this, mosaics are a good alternative. But mosaics aren't just for that; as we know! This design from Cafelab makes a feature out of an odd angled wall and adds a great deal to admire on this shower room. A mixture of intense and deep colours that compose well, we think, and leave an admirable finish.
