Choosing the design and type material for walls and / or floors becomes a crucial decision when it comes to bathrooms. It is usually the smallest room in the house, which means that any decoration you place in there is practically magnified by ten. Bathrooms tend to be those great forgotten spaces which contain only the standard and uniform items that are essential, but, going to the bathroom can be a leisurely experience too. More so, you can turn it into a relaxing oasis, a world filled with design possibilities.

If you are thinking of giving a new air to your lavatory, or you are simply in the process of furnishing and decorating it, then we would like to propose on revamping the tiling. Old homes usually have problems with the tile gout being too worn out that it gets sickening to look at. Having them taken out is not only for better aesthetics but more for health and sanitary reasons. Once you're done that, then you can start anew! Check out these new materials and styles which can be incorporated into your bathroom design as well. There's nothing like a good set of tiles to give character to the washrooms.

Mosaics on floors and walls

The aesthetic patchwork is on the rise when it comes to interior design. Picking different patterns that have the same pale blue shade to form a nice statement that can be likened to a handmade quilt. The pattern may have a busy appearance but using it only in certain areas and matching it with a solid white beautifully ties up the overall look. 

The tile combines with everything

It is inside specially small bathrooms, where decorations have to be well planned. It is the best opportunity to sharpen your ingenuity and to maximize every bit of space much like this magnificent lavatory. The white tiles that cover the wall at the bottom part of the wall have been combined with a celestial blue wallpaper, which achieves an excellent contrast that makes the space appear more airy and larger without having to cause a visual overload. While three sides of the wall have patterns there is one side that is kept with a solid color so that it doesn't feel too constricting.

Uniformity in tones

The search for contrasts between tiles does not have to become our main objective. Sometimes, coloring our baths with a single tonality causes results as attractive as this image above. In this occasion, small tiles in the form of squares, known as gresite, have been used in colors within the scale of browns and orange, to cover an entire wall. A space that is warm with beautifully textured walls.

Long live the gresite!

Surely you have wondered where you have seen this kind of tiles before. The gresite has been around for quite a while, since the 60's more nor less! Although it has been during the last decade when we have seen it more frequently in bathrooms and kitchens than in the pools. Here we have a mural-like gresite, as a way to break with the uniformity of the classic tile. What is clear is that decorating with this type of mosaic is always synonymous with personal stlye.

Square washbasins

One of the great advantages of tiles is that they can be combined in one and a thousand different ways. The limits mark your personal taste and the character you want to give your bathroom. What do you prefer to emphasize? The classic tiles or the mosaic design in gresite? If you want, you can have the classic look for the walls and the gresite for the floor. Here colors play a key role, as they distribute your attention between specific details.

A flower garden on the wall

The mosaics of the gresite are fine, but how about a combination between uniform tiles and others that resemble a contemporary acrylic painting. With the intention of turning the bathroom into a luxury room, made almost for the fleeting delight of our senses. With the same charm as the traditional tiles, new trends in ceramics and porcelain still retain that bright texture that brings la soft touch to our bathrooms.

Pastel decoration

Did you know that the tile is the ideal coating for bathrooms and showers? Waterproof tiles tolerates moisture well, a quality that is perfect inside any bathroom. In addition, this same condition makes them immune to any water stain that the shower vapor can cause. We also encourage you to place some classic tiles in the sink, it is advisable to opt for pastel tones and tiles in mosaic, especially inside small bathrooms. By not overarching on decors, you will gain the feeling of being in a larger space.

Marking territory

An intelligent way to distribute the tiles inside the bathroom is to do it by zones, in such a way that spaces are limited. For example, you can have mosaic tiles can have vivid colors for the shower, large and uniform tiles for the floor, and geometric avant garde print for the sink. The incongruity of the lines provoke a visual effect of added depth by playing a mind trick on your eyes, a wonderful and cool trick that can be done in small bathrooms.

In the children's bathroom

The tiles that have been chosen for this bathroom remind us of the ceramic mosaic that is obtained with the gresite, except that in this occasion, the glass pieces have been replaced by ceramic, much cheaper than the first. The partitions and the wall of the background are the protagonists of the space, thanks to the rainbow colors – the tiles drawn attention and liveliness, creating a whimsical bathroom wonderland for the little ones. 

The elegant combination

Black color has always been a bold color statement. Adding this color with the rustic design of bricks and bare walls provides a contrast that modernizes the bathroom. In this picture, you'll find a good example of combining different styles.
