But in addition to the combination of colors, the designers also have used different textures and sizes, which give more variety and style to the bathroom.

​Warm and cold tones

The yellows and cream are combined with the grayish blue resulting in a subtle, warm and pleasant bathroom. The mixture of colors does not follow an established norm: sometimes the most yellowish tones predominate, other times there is more blue. It all depends on what effect you want to achieve, but generally it gives the best effect when there is no particular order.

Here it is as important to choose the colors of your tiles well as is to install them correctly. Make sure you prepare the wall well before placing the tile and try to use a technique that prevents gaps between tile and brick, since these will be more fragile and can break easily.
