When you have family members in the property industry you tend to learn a considerable amount about all sorts relating to home renovation and decorating by default. My latest lesson or should I say topic revisited involved bathroom tiles.
As a result, I decided to follow on from my recent post about kitchen tiles. I wanted to continue the topic and subsequently share a post about bathroom tiles. Many of us turn to the internet for inspiration when designing our dream kitchen or creating a luxury bathroom/spa look.
This for example:

can be transformed into something quite breathtaking with the addition of tiles – I’m slightly obsessed as I have always loved tiles.
Tiles give a room a gorgeous luxury appearance. In a bathroom, they can make bathing a far more relaxing experience. Whether you want to add a border, shower panel, or complete an all-over renovation, tiles have the power to give your bathroom an instant lift.
Here are a few ideas for anyone considering renovating a bathroom:
Mosaic tiles are a firm favourite for many in bathroom decoration. They look great and are also easy to lay in any shape or formation without the need for extensive cutting. These tiles are ideal for shower or wet-room floors and are one of the most versatile tile styles available. These are available in a wide range of colours, shapes, textures and sizes so can therefore be adapted for use in almost any space. You can create a beautiful under-sea look to a bathroom perfect for any aspiring merperson by introducing shimmery neutral tiles that have a pearl-like shimmer. Alternatively, using vibrant coloured mosaic tiles can introduce a little colour to a bathroom via a border or feature wall.
Natural Stone Tiles
We often associate spa retreats with a gorgeous natural stone floor and walls. The natural variations of the stone tiles give a luxurious look and feel to a room. They also add atmosphere to your bathroom with a dramatic dark slate, or classic luxury with a marble-effect tile. Large neutral coloured tiles evoke the sun-kissed interiors of a Mediterranean bathroom making the room brighter and give the impression of a more spacious room. Whatever your taste, the versatility and beauty of natural stone will transform and enhance the appearance of any bathroom.
Recent innovations in digital printing make it is possible to capture the look and texture of natural stone for a fraction of the cost. This allows for that wonderful luxurious look and feel even with a much smaller budget.
These hard-wearing tiles can have the most stunning designs thus making it very popular. This stone is extremely versatile as a design material. Its affordability and adaptability make it a popular choice for recreating other tile styles. With minimal effort, we can find realistic marble, granite and urban-inspired quartz styles for a low-maintenance and stylish bathroom wall. The numerous styles available provide a nicely varied selection from which to choose.

Wood Effect Tiles
No matter how much we’d love to recreate a Swedish sauna in our own homes, a wooden floor in a bathroom just isn’t feasible. Fortunately, there is an alternative that could be considered in the form of wood effect tiles. These are waterproof, hard-wearing and also give a natural wood look and feel.
Tiling bathroom walls help bring the ‘Hygge’ trend to one of the most-used rooms in our home. Lay wood effect tiles from floor to ceiling to create an all-encompassing sense of welcome and warmth.
Ultimately decisions come down to budget. Within this post, I have provided plenty of options to suit all pockets. I hope this has inspired anyone looking to refurbish a bathroom.
Which option would you like most in your bathroom?
