Whether you’re moving in to a new property that needs updating or you just want to give your current bathroom a revamp, you might be in need of some design ideas. With a number of different styles in the interior design mix right now, which ones are going to give you that stunning bathroom of your dreams?
These tiles are a type of ceramic made from brown clay, which is what gives them their iconic colour. Terracotta tiles are experiencing a resurgence in popularity thanks to their warm, rustic look. Synonymous with the Mediterranean, these tiles are perfect if you’re wanting a faraway, dreamy theme. Similarly, Moroccan tiles are also equally as popular at the moment. The traditional Zellige tile offers a wealth of patterns that help to create stunning, detailed aesthetics that carry that exotic look.
Geometric patterns are set to continue their domination of the interiors world this year. Simple, but beautiful, geometric shapes will give a nice touch to a bathroom without the need of much furniture to complete the look. Geometric tiles offer a strong modern and contemporary look and work best when used with different colours to really make the shapes pop. One homeowners favourites right now is the hexagon tile. You can use it on its own, combine it with another geometrical shape or just as a complementary feature to the decoration.
Period Style Bathrooms
This classic design is very much in style right now. The period look bathroom is well suited for country houses, but look lovely as part of any home when done right. This style is often characterised by vintage baths complemented with traditional ceramic tiles. The most recommended tiles for this look include patterned and metro. The typical combination is to have the patterned tile on the floor and the metro tile on the wall. When looking for the pattern tile stick to floral or art nouveau inspired designs. The metro wall tiles offer that vintage glamour thanks to their connotations with the early 1900’s London Underground. This immediately offers you an iconic look that will truly stand the test of time.
Rustic inspired looks are perfect for channeling that countryside cottage theme. This look is characterised by light colours which you can take advantage of to make your bathroom look and feel larger. A great addition to rustic bathrooms are mat tiles. This finish, unlike the gloss, doesn’t shine. Matt tiles are not only very popular with designers at the moment for modern looks, but are ideal for rustic designs. Their no shine, no fuss look is perfect for that textured, rustic bathroom. You can use it by itself or combine it with natural materials to get a more earthy, rough. The harsher tile look can be offset perfectly with softer furnishings to keep that charming atmosphere.
Good news, metallics are well and truly back. Gold and champagne finishes are emerging and look like they are going to be very popular. It’s important to note with metallic tiles that less is often more. You don’t want to overpower your bathroom with metallics, so keep it simple. If you don’t want to use metallic tiles, look to metallic accessories to achieve this look and work with neutral, plain tiles to create balance.
So there you have it, some of the trends for bathrooms this year, now you only need to choose which is your favourite!
