Hear from the experts about how to apply the latest tile trends in your bathroom


“The trend for tiles has evolved over the past couple of years with a more playful and trend-led approach taken when customers choose the tiles for their bathroom. Whether it’s looking to earthy terracotta tiles in response to the latest colour trends or introducing pattern and combining different designs, tiles provide the opportunity to create a unique feature and reveal hints of your personality. Smaller classic styles remain ever popular and we’re seeing a rise in extra large tiles that can be used on the walls, floors or both for a truly immersive experience.” Shirley Holland, Marketing Manager, Gemini Tiles 

“Light, earthy and muted tones for tiles continue to be a timeless
trend. Industrial, concrete look tiles are also particularly popular for
more contemporary homes, where wooden look tiles are also still a staple trend and do well in complementing both modern and traditional bathrooms. Hexagonal tiles continue to be popular and I think we will see more metallic looking tiles in the future.” Dan Cook, Designer, C.P. Hart 

“Tiles can make or break a look, so make sure you are using them consciously and in moderation. Tiles with intricate patterns, geometrics and iridescent designs go very well with modern neutrals and muted hues and add interest to the space.” Jane Addis, Design Manager, Original Style 

Featured: The Terra Nova tile in glazed porcelain, shown here in Tobacco, creates a stunning aesthetic covering both the walls and floor in this utilitarian but still warm and inviting bathroom space. Also available in Nero and Mocha.
