Patterned Bathroom Tiles

Let us, let you in to the world of patterned bathroom tiles! Now there are many popular tiles of this day and age such as wood effect, hexagon tiles etc et but nothing can quite compare to the style and character a patterned bathroom floor tile can offer!

These tiles were originally found in the market streets of Morocco, where the use of patterned and encaustic effect tiles have always been the fashion statement for centuries! Unlike the processes once used to create a patterned tile which consisted of crushed concrete, stone, glass and marble our tiles tend to be made from ceramic and porcelain.

The reason for this, is so they do not wear and offer waterproof capabilities without all the maintenance of having a cement based tile.

There are a lot of uses for patterned tiles and as we progress and choose to make our homes a reflection of our personality and strive for uniqueness we have a collection of over 300 patterned tiles. All of which have been designed to suit different environments.

For example one may choose to use a pastel coloured patterned bathroom tile in a bathroom that doesn't get much natural light to ensure the walls or floors are not dulled down. On the other hand some people with an incredibly modern/White House may choose to use bold colours with powerful landscape impressions to add age to the property.

The uses for patterned bathroom tiles is endless and below are just some of the different styles that are most popular within the bathroom.


Hexagon Patterned Bathroom Tiles

Okay so one of the latest combinations is the use of taking a patterned bathroom tile and combining it with the geometric shape of a hexagon tile. These create an absolutely stunning finish, perfect for those looking to create either a feature wall or floor within their bathroom or for a complete bathroom decoration.

With the use of this combination in the bathroom it will create a modern atmosphere which is perfectly suite to more modern bathrooms.

Within the range of hexagon patterned bathroom tiles there are approximately 1000 different designs, sizes and finishes to choose from. It is important to remember that bathrooms can become slipper so we would always advise against using a gloss tile on the bathroom floor.

That being said a quick check through the product specification will let you know whether the tile is suitable or not.

A little design tip for those seeking to use both a patterned bathroom tile and hexagon tile would be to use a. larger patterned bathroom tile for the floor and the use a hexagon tile on the wall, this will make the floor space appear larger whilst still giving off a modern finish!



Metro Patterned Bathroom Tiles

It is incredibly hard to stay away from the "metro" tile! it is incredibly popular and it isn't going anywhere but you can forget all you know about these because we have a slightly different take on them.

We like to experiment with our collections and give out customers the most diverse selection of patterned bathroom tiles, therefore we introduce the like of patterned bathroom tiles in a metro form, you will see form the picture below just one example of how much these can transform a bathroom and the beauty offered!

We think these work perfectly on their own as a feature. When we mention the word "feature" what we mean is that these patterned bathroom tiles work best on their own as a feature for a single o maybe two wall within a bathroom, the rest we would advise the same style but a light colour to ensure the bathroom does not "busy"

Although the image below shows one variation there are others! you can opt for a monochrome patterned bathroom tiles in metro form almost identical to the below so don't think that patterned instantly means colour as, it means so much more!


Encaustic Effect Patterned Bathroom Tiles

We have a large range fo encaustic effect patterned tiles that is non-exhaustive this includes the likes of monochrome designs, single coloured designs and mixed colour designs. Its important for us that our customers have a large option to choose from as we believe everyones taste is unique.

When opting to decorate a bathroom in patterned tiles it is important to remember in general a bathroom is not a massive space therefore you do not want it appearing to be cluttered so simply decking the bathroom floor to ceiling on all 4 walls in a heaving patterned colourful bathroom tile is not a good idea!

Instead be inventive opt for a monochrome or single colour design on the floor and couple it with a feature wall within the bathroom in a contrasting colour palette.


Geometric Patterned Bathroom Tiles


For those who really like to push the boat out and really create a focal point then our geometric patterned bathroom tiles will best suit you.

These urban and cool patterned bathroom tiles usually combine the use of relative design and geometric shapes to offer an abstract/3D design that is continuous and eye-catching.

These work particularly well as a floor covering but just as well as a wall covering. A Coll idea for the use of these would be to use them on the floor and allow them to stretch up one wall. It will give it a very urban abstract design without looking too busy. 

We would advise not using two different geometric patterns in one room as it will take the affect away!

Application Of Patterned Bathroom Tiles


As with most of our tiles their uses are endless especially within the bathroom but there are a few things to look out for.

When deciding to use a patterned bathroom tiles remember the size of the room and be sure not to make it feel dark or closed in, when we say this we mean only use patterned tiles for a maximum of two coverings for example, the floor and one wall or one wall and a sink splash back.

When choosing a patterned bathroom floor tile make sure it does not have a gloss finish and is made from porcelain, this will offer a safe and durable finish!
