Here are some tiling styles designers depend on to create stunning bathrooms.
For elegant, classic beauty, Carrera marble is the perfect choice. The clean white marble with delicate lines of grey offer you the bathroom of Roman baths and Greek temples. Carrera marble can be used from floor to ceiling and comes in many patterns from mosaic to full slabs for walls and counters. You can create beautiful shower surrounds, floors with delicate insets and patterns and clean, cool countertops for vanities. When combined with chandeliers, silver toned metals and white moulded tubs, your bathroom becomes a luxurious indulgence.
Glass tile creates a more contemporary design with plenty of sparkle and interest. Available in a wide assortment of sizes and colours, glass tile can create the sleek, upscale design for the contemporary bathroom. Combined with woods, slate floors and straight lines, the contemporary bathroom isn’t complete without glass. Look to glass walled shower stalls, silver toned fixtures and substantial tubs and vanities. Wall sconce and recessed lighting complete the look.
Glass tile also works well with the ultra-modern bathroom and white and grey are popular choices for modern design. The ultra modern bathroom has high gloss floors in large-scale tile, slick-floating vanities devoid of detail and raised glass sinks and shower stalls. Tubs are square or oval sans feet and often centred in the room. Many modern bathrooms rely heavily on large shower “rooms” with glass walls without tubs at all. Up lighting and recess lighting or massive modern chandeliers above tubs are all finishing touches to the ultra modern bathroom.
The classic bathroom relies on stone or porcelain and ceramic tiles, larger in scale around tubs and in shower stalls. Warmer colours and woods in a neutral palette, ornate vanities or pedestal sinks and bronze fixtures are popular. Tiles on the diagonal as well as ornately footed Victorian tubs as well as chandeliers and wall sconces add light and sparkle to ornate vanity mirrors with gold frames, classic wide frames in dark woods or even frameless etched mirrors.
