Why have patterned tiles become so popular?
Patterned bathroom tiles offer something completely different from any other style of bathroom tile. The creative shapes and intricate design of these tiles draw the eye and instantly makes a feature wherever they are used in the bathroom. Patterned tiles can also work equally well in either a modern or traditional setting.
Pattern tiles are universal enough to be used on either your bathroom floor or walls. Another reason this style of tile has become so popular is that they add a designer look to your bathroom. This designer edge helps to make a bathroom appear more expensive when in reality patterned tiles are just as cost-effective as any other bathroom tile.
How to use patterned tiles in your bathroom
One of the easiest ways of employing patterned tiles in your bathroom is to use them on your bathroom floor. A nice idea is to keep your bathroom walls simple with either plain painted walls or plain tiles and then use patterned tiles to create a dramatic footprint on the whole of your bathroom floor. An extremely popular look is white walls and a patterned tiled floor.
Another idea is to use patterned tiles sparingly in a certain area of your bathroom. Remember a little is a lot when it comes to these beautiful tiles so think carefully about which part of your bathroom would benefit from them the most. Why not consider using patterned tiles on just one wall of your bathroom or maybe use them to tile the inside of a shower enclosure or walk-in shower?
One more idea is to use pattern tiles to subtlety draw attention to the recesses and alcoves in your bathroom; making a feature of these often forgotten areas.
Which bathroom tiles work best with patterned tiles?
As mentioned above it’s best to use patterned tiles sparingly so as not to overwhelm your room too much. With that in mind you need to keep a keen eye on tiles that will complement your choice of pattern tile. Bathroom tiles with a plain texture will work best for this.
Metro tiles work brilliantly with pattern tiles. The uniform, glossy appearance of metro tiles makes them a great choice for bathroom walls above a pattern tiled floor. Another clever choice is to opt for a plain tile that works with the colour of your pattern tile.
