As you can see today, tiles are becoming the clearest trend for covering bathrooms, given the large number of advantages they present and the wide variety of proposals that the market offers us, which makes them perfect for recreating comfortable and personalized spaces. We show you some of the main trends today in bathroom cladding.
Glass mosaics are ideal for those looking to give their bathroom a greater sense of depth, brightness and light. Furthermore, thanks to their versatility, they can be adapted to shower walls, floors and in the hand basin area.
And they can be found in a wide palette of colors, which provide the perfect finish that makes them ideal as a bathroom accent.
In addition, many times these types of tiles are created from recycled glass, so they are also environmentally friendly.
Ceramic classics are usually the best way to add different patterns and designs to bathroom walls. The elongated subway tile is being used a lot, as we see in this image.
Also the tiles with relief, which give an elegant and contemporary appearance.
For several years, tiles that simulate the veins of marble or stone have also been a trend.
For the most rustic, the best option is always wood, but those in the know tell us that wood is not suitable for humid spaces such as the bathroom, which is why imitation wood tiles have gained a lot of popularity today.
In addition, thanks to the creativity of the ceramics industry, tiles more similar to natural wood are increasingly available on the market.
Another trend in bathroom decoration is the use of colored tiles, achieving walls full of vitality and energy. Let’s look at some examples.
Of course, we are talking about an artistic style in decoration, which not many dare to apply in their homes, although those who do achieve fascinating results. In addition, there is a mistaken idea that the artistic style should be applied to an entire room, if it is used, and it is not. As an example, you can see in the photo above how just one column of blue tiles was enough to give a classic bathroom a touch of life.
They can be applied to any of the bathroom walls and guarantee that their colours, their brightness against the light and their texture will make them an indisputable focal point in the space. It can also be an excellent way to show the category and style of the house.
