Updating or renovating your bathroom takes time and effort (as with any home transformation) so it’s important to get it right the first time! These types of home renovations are full of variables and there might be some road bumps along the way – but, having a plan and timetable is essential to help manage the work going on, and, to get excited about the light at the end of the tunnel.

To help, we’ve put together some tips and ideas on updating your bathroom, focussing on the importance of tiles and showcasing how they can completely transform a space. We’ll be looking at five popular bathroom styles and spaces and discussing the many tile options available.

 

The Contemporary Bathroom

Contemporary bathrooms are popular for good reason, they look ultra-stylish and are practical in their minimalist style – a winning combination! Large-format tiles are a natural choice in contemporary style bathrooms, their clean lines and large size makes for fewer grout gaps and a more seamless appearance. Pictured below is our City range in the sleek Lucca Nero shade:








For more natural and neutral tones take a look at our many wood-effect options, pictured here is Tileworks Carvalo.

Pictured below are Arbour and Eden, both from the Living collection. These colourful prints will be sure to make an impact and give your bathroom the bright and bold makeover it deserves!







For a real colour splash there are many jewel like tones and finishes available in our Glassworks collection. From iridescent pinks and blues to deep shades of purple, glass tiles will add a touch of opulence and glamour to any bathroom.

The Timeless Classic Bathroom

There’s something truly beautiful about a classic, English heritage style bathroom. Usually in muted neutral tones or timeless black and white, these style of bathroom tiles have always been in vogue.

The Small yet Stylish Bathroom

Having a smaller and more compact bathroom needn’t mean you need to compromise on style, in fact choosing the right tiles can actually help to add the feeling of more space. Opting for a reflective, glazed tile will bounce light around the room which in turn gives the impression of more space. Our Winchester collection offers a whole host of glossy glazed tiles in a variety of shapes and formats, they’ll add colour, style and dimension thanks to the depth of their finish:









To make the most of this trick opt for our Glassworks Antique Mirror tiles, use on two opposite walls to create an infinity style effect, the bigger the mirrors, the bigger the impact!

The Spa-Style Bathroom

Creating a spa-style bathroom is easily achieved with the right style of tiles. Again large-format tiles from our Tileworks are great for this look, especially in stone and wood-effect options. Pair with coordinating floor tiles and a touch of Mosaics for your very own calming oasis:
