How to create a luxury bathroom on a budget using tiles

Are you looking to create a high end style bathroom but without the high cost? Investing wisely in the right fittings, fabrics and materials like tiles can pay off for years to come. This needn’t blow your budget either; we have plenty of affordable and on trend tiles to give your bathroom that wonderful luxurious feel.

Tiles are a good starting point when it comes to designing your bathroom, if you are opting for a contemporary style then consider using simple large format tiles - the simplicity being that the larger the tiles the less you need to buy in order to cover your walls and floors! The Tileworks collection is great for those on a budget, and beautiful designs like Alaska, Sandstorm and Regency just prove that you needn’t compromise on style if you are trying to save money.

For something really on trend look no further than Marble Carrera Panzetto. Marble is everywhere in interiors at the moment and faux marble is just as stunning as the real deal! Whether used on a small or large scale, or on the wall or floor it’s no doubt that marble lends itself to luxury and using an affordable porcelain dupe means the look is even more achievable.


Even just sprucing up a section of your bathroom like the floor can help create a high end look. Updating your floor if you are on a tight budget is a great way to make an impact as it’s likely to be a smaller surface area than the walls. Our Odyssey Grande patterned tiles will help to transform your bathroom into a luxury haven, try Knightshayes as pictured below which looks beautiful whether used on a small or large scale

These floor tiles also work with underfloor heating and a warm floor in a bathroom is a coveted luxury. Underfloor heating also has the advantage of being hidden away and due to the even distribution of heat it’s a really efficient way to warm up a room whilst adding a touch of luxury, and it is more cost efficient in the long run than traditional radiators!

Another way to add luxe for less is with mirrors or Antique Mirror Tiles. Covering just a small surface area, perhaps above a sink as a splashback, is a brilliant way to add drama and add the illusion of extra space. Team with fresh fluffy towels and some gorgeous rose gold or copper accessories for a full on glamorous feel.
