Home Bathroom Tile Trends for 2017
Article by Pembroke Tile & Stone
Bathrooms are one of the most used rooms in the home. They can be a place to get away from the noise and stresses of the day; a place to indulge your senses, relax and enjoy some alone time. And although function is important, so is form. People are looking more and more to create mini sanctuaries in their home.
Back to Nature Homeowners are exploring ways of enjoying the warmth and texture of natural materials. Transform your space using natural materials such as wood, bamboo, granite and natural stone. Wood-look tile combines the visual characteristics and soothing nature of wood with the durability and moisture resistant properties of porcelain or ceramic.
Mediterranean-Inspired Design Patterned tiles inspired by ancient Mediterranean countries like Spain, Morocco and Portugal are coming back in a big way. The look adds tons of visual interest and brings softness to neutral and white bathrooms.
Classic Whites Classic white subway tile never goes out of style and can be paired with most any look. Update the style by setting subway tile in unique patterns. Make it the base for a casual industrial style or dress it up with traditional-style furniture and fixtures for a timeless look. Try a dark coloured grout like grey or black for an added effect.
Less is More Minimalism is in. Homeowners are investing in sleek free-standing tubs, floating vanities, and clean cabinets. The aesthetic is restrained elegance, but functionality is not compromised.
Shimmer & Shine Glossy surfaces, mirrored finishes and tapware in brass or rose gold can make a huge difference in a bathroom. As well as adding a certain shine, they can help boost light levels and make a compact space feel larger than it actually is.
Stand Out Surfaces Make a statement with monochromatic three-dimensional tile. Add visual interest to your bathroom by using them as an accent wall in the shower or behind a vanity. Dimensional tile can turn an ordinary bathroom into extraordinary, even if it is classic white.
Geometric Tiles The geometric trend in tile continues to thrive with hexagonal tiles making their way into the bathroom. They can be used on a large scale throughout the room or just on an accent wall. Combine different colours to create visually arresting patterns.
The bathroom no longer needs to be utilitarian. Be inspired by these timeless trends to create your own private oasis. For all the latest tile styles, visit the Pembroke Tile & Stone showroom on Serpentine Road or www.pts.bm
