Five must-have bathroom tile trends

Changing the flooring makes a huge difference to any room, and none more so than the bathroom. The right flooring sets the tone of the whole room. In a bathroom, flooring needs to be practical and robust, as well as trendy and stylish.

Being strong, practical, and easy to clean, not to mention coming in endless styles, colours, shapes and sizes, tiles offer the perfect type of flooring for a bathroom.

Whether you’re wanting to inject some new life into a small en-suite bathroom or a large master bathroom, check out the following unmissable bathroom tile trends.

Stencilled black and white tiles

For a retro look that oozes style and panache, opt for stencilled black and white bathroom tiles. Stencilled black and white tiles are everywhere on Pinterest, so why not incorporate this must-have trend into your own bathroom? Stencilled patterns come in all shapes and forms, so you can have fun choosing which of these intricately patterned tiles would look best in your bathroom.

Wood-look tiles

One bathroom flooring trend that’s been gaining momentum are wood-look tiles. These realistic-looking tiles come in a variety of colours and styles. Being easy to clean and slip-resistant, these innovative tiles offer a more practical type of bathroom flooring compared to real wood.

Mosaic tiles

Combining a variety of materials, including stone, glass, ceramic and porcelain, mosaic tiles are perfect for rooms requiring robust flooring such as bathrooms. Mosaics are also super ‘on trend’ as a stylish way to bring a bathroom to life.

Furthermore, mosaic bathroom tiles come in a wealth of styles and patterns. Small squares, chevron, hexagons, and basket weaves, are just several eye-catching patterns.

Vinyl tiles

Vinyl tiles are hugely popular in the bathroom and therefore always on-trend. Much of the popularity of vinyl tiles is owed to their low cost and practicality.

Marble tiles

Marble tiles – real marble and marble-effect – exude opulence in a bathroom, creating an elegant and luxurious finish. For an eye-catching look, opt for marble with bold veins of colour, or something more monochromatic for a subtler look.
