Nowadays there are so many different tile styles and materials that it makes narrowing down a selection for your bathroom incredibly difficult. While it can be tempting to incorporate a range of different tiles, it’s important to learn which sizes, shapes and patterns work together and which do not. To help you out, here are some tips from our bathroom renovation experts.
Balance busy tiles
Busy or patterned tiles should only be used as features on splashbacks, or as a feature in showers or on the side of in build bath tubs. Try not to use them across whole rooms as this can be overwhelming. If the pattern isn’t too intense you can use it for flooring providing you balance it out with neutral wall tiling.
Pay attention to scale
A basic rule of thumb is to choose one large tile and one small. Smaller tiles work around baths and showers, or as accents, and larger tiles tend to look better as flooring. Three sizes of tiles can also work, but it will require more careful planning.
Contrast matte and gloss finishes
If you want to combine similarly sized tiles or incorporate more patterned tiles, choose one tile that is matte and one that is gloss. This will create more definition and make your bathroom design look more considered.
Keep your shape consistent
If you want to experiment with different sizes and colours, try to keep the shape of your tiles consistent to create a more harmonious look. Rectangular shaped tiles are especially effective for this.
Limit your colour palette
The safest bet is to stick with neutral colours such as grey and white, but if you want to use colour, make sure all the colours you select are all part the same colour palette.
