If you’re considering a bathroom refit, then you’ll want to use tiles to create some stunning visual effects. You’ve probably spent hours online already studying different tile effects from natural stone to beautiful porcelain and the choice can seem overwhelming. However, there are a few simple design tips that will help you create the impact you’re looking for.


Focus On Your ‘Must Have’ Tile

In all your research, the chances are there’s a particular tile that you feel you just have to use. It may be a jewel-coloured mosaic or a simple subway tile, but this will form the foundation of your design. Now start pulling in your complementary tiles, which will be dictated by your ‘must have’ choice. For example, if you’ve chosen an aquamarine mosaic, you may want to keep the rest of your ceramics white to allow it to really pop. That white subway tile might pair beautifully with a boldly patterned floor tile or dramatic dark porcelain.


The Rule of Three

A good rule of thumb is to stick to the rule of three and choose a floor tile, a wall tile, and an accent tile – it’s up to you to decide how your focal tile fits into that trinity. Of course, rules are always made to be broken: for example, a monochrome scheme always looks dramatic, whatever the size of your bathroom.

Think About Scale

Large-scale tiles are definitely very much on trend at the moment and can work surprisingly well in a small bathroom, as the lack of grout lines trick the eye into believing the space is bigger than it really is. By contrast, mosaics can look too busy in a more compact bathroom yet can create a real showstopper when used sparingly as an accent or to create a bespoke pattern.
