Bathroom design – less is sometimes more

The bathroom by nature, is one the busiest places in the home and one of the easiest places to look and feel cluttered. Nothing beats a minimalistic bathroom that allows you to escape from every day, a place where you can relax and unwind. A soft palette of colour tones, simple furnishings is one that will give you a spa-like sanctuary feeling.  Tiles are the key to a well-design space that creates the overall theme to your bathroom. Whether your bathroom tiles are the focal point to your space, or a surface that compliments the theme of your home.

Upsizing your tiles with the World Largest Tile!

Timeless, elegant and classic. The simplicity of large tiles is one you will forever love. Today we are seeing a growing trend for large format tiles for walls and floors for residential and commercial projects. There was a time where 600x600mm tiles were considered huge but now we are seeing tiles in 800x8000mm, 1200×600, 1500x1500mmmm and tiles as big as 3m x 1.5m which is enormous! How can you call this a tile when it’s nearly as big or same as slab? The answer lies in the beauty of the tile manufacturing process. Made from porcelain, this tiles are a hard wearing surface that is virtually non-porous and with many resistant properties. This makes the design possibilities in bathrooms endless! Large format tiles can make a dramatic difference to an entire room and create a sense of creative freedom. Large format tiles are perfect for creating a sense of space in small bathrooms. Laying your large tiles from the floor onto the walls means there is minimal grout lines with the added benefits of less grout cleaning and maintenance. 

A place to escape from the everyday

Bathrooms are becoming a place to linger longer, that allow you to relax and unwind from our busy lives. Today we are seeing more and more bathrooms bringing the outdoors into indoor spaces, in particular, the bathroom. A sense of tranquillity that reflects each and everyday client’s interpretation of relaxation is becoming the project scope in many bathroom designs to date.   Concrete look tiles provide the perfect canvas for simplistic bathrooms. Pair your concrete look bathroom tiles with touches of timber will leave you with a touch of indulgence.

The statement to your bathroom

Every bathroom needs a focal point. Free-standing baths are perfect for being the centre piece of a simple bathroom design. A modern space that revolves around the feature of your bathroom is simply divine! While we want to consider privacy in your bathroom, there’s no need to feel boxed in while you’re bathing! There are many practical aspects to freestanding baths, like framing your space with a bathroom niche for not only extra storage but it also looks visually pleasing. Consider behind your free standing bath a feature wall tile that is intriguing and adds interest to the space.  Nothing spells luxury like a breathtakingly feature wall tile that creates a statement in your home.  There are endless possibilities for splashback tiles for bathrooms.  Whatever you may choose whether it be your wall or floor tile, your bath, the lighting even your vanity, make it memorable, one that guest will never forget!
