Bathroom floor tiles design is evolving to give you an almost never-ending set of options, bold colours, grey bathroom floor tile ideas, different textures and finishes. You could simply match your floor and wall tile, we recommend that you use your next bathroom renovation as an opportunity to create contrasts between the floor tiles & the wall tiles, use a different colour, shape or material.
An all-white bathroom really pops with a contrasting dark tile floor and vice versa. If you don’t want to go contrasting colours, then try tiling the floor in a coordinating colour but use a unique shape, like small bathroom floor tiles, hexagons or large-format tiles, to create an interesting look.
Some Shower Floor Tile Ideas
Floor tiles are always a great choice for your shower or tub because they are waterproof and easy to clean. We love tiles because they can turn an otherwise overlooked room in your home into a showpiece. Always take the shower and tub tile into account when you plan the rest of your bathroom. As we’ve already outlined you don’t need to match them, instead ensure that all of the tiles in the bathroom should look like part of an overall cohesive design.
Using Large-format Tiles
There are lots of benefits of using large-format tiles in your bathroom. They easily cover large areas, can be easier to clean due to having fewer grout lines and can make a small bathroom look bigger. But we love them most of all for the elegance they can bring to a room. Lift the style of your shower, tub or bathroom tile with any of BDW’s hundreds of large-format tiles, including wood-look planks and 3-D tiles.
Tips For Tiling In Small Bathrooms
With a few tile tips and tricks, there are ways to make a small bathroom feel larger than it is. Using one size tile on all the walls, floor to ceiling can help open a space up. Switching to another tile partway up the wall can visually cut the room off, making it appear smaller. If you’re using both tile and paint on the walls, using similar colours will help smoothly transition from one space to another without hard stops. Tiling your shower all the way to the top of the ceiling is a similar strategy that gives a sense of height to your bathroom.
How To Choose Bathroom Tile Colors
There are numerous options for your bathroom’s colour scheme which can make it hard to make a final choice that’s the right one for you. Often, it’s hard to describe the look you want, but you’ll know it when you see it. That’s why we recommend checking out our social media pages and BDW Gallery. Here, you’ll find inspirational pictures of bathroom spaces so you can better imagine how a certain tile or colour scheme will look in your home. Once you start browsing and find something you like, save it or print it out when you come into a BDW showroom for inspiration.
Neutral looks are always popular but if you love the look of bright, bold or dark colours, don’t be afraid to use them. Just balance a bright colour with neutrals. There’s nothing wrong with an all-neutral bathroom, but try to use more than one neutral, like combining grey and white, to keep the look interesting. And don’t be afraid to create your own look. As long as the tile and basic elements of the bathroom are not competing with one another, you can play with different colours and accents until everything finally clicks in place.
