Bathroom tile combinations - a must for your home

Which bathroom tile combinations are the most suitable? Colours, textures, formats and the layout define the design of a space, making it more attractive and personal

Interior design has evolved significantly over the last few years, and one of the areas that has undergone the greatest transformation is the bathroom. Previously considered a purely functional room, the bathroom has become a space of relaxation within the home.

When it comes to creating a bathroom, one of the main decisions is the choice of wall and floor tiling materials. The combination of bathroom tiles can therefore influence the appearance, atmosphere and functionality of the space. In this article, we will take a look at the different options when it comes to creating a unique and attractive bathroom.

Combinations of bathroom tiles on floors and walls

One of the first decisions to be made when combining tiles for the bathroom is the location. Tiles can be used on the floor, walls, or both surfaces. This choice can make a big difference in the overall appearance of the room.

• Bathroom floor tiles
Ceramic is one of the most widely used options for bathroom flooring due to its durability, ease of cleaning and resistance to water and stains. In addition, its versatility in design allows you to choose uniform image or get creative with patterns. The combinations of colours on floors and walls help to create a uniform and harmonious look in your bathroom.

• Bathroom wall tiles##44441## ##44441##Using wall tiles is a choice which is both aesthetic and functional. Ceramic protects the walls from moisture and water while adding a touch of elegance and texture to the bathroom. We could choose to cover the whole wall or just a specific section, such as the shower area, combining colours and textures for a stronger visual identity.

Combinations of colours in bathroom tiles

The choice of colours in bathroom tile combinations is absolutely key. Not surprisingly, colours can have a significant impact on the perception of space and the creation of a particular ambience. These are some of the most common colour combinations for bathroom tiles:

(1) Deco Marami and Dolomiti by Porcelanosa. (2) Fiji White and Fiji Silver by L'Antic Colonial. (3) Metropolitan Deco Seagreen and Metropolitan Moss de L'Antic Colonial.

Black and white. The combination of black and white tiles creates an elegant and timeless contrast. White tiles tend to be used on walls, while black tiles are more likely to be used on the floor or to create an accent wall. Adding gold or silver details can also further enhance the aesthetic.

Neutral tones. The use of grey in bathroom tile combinations is very popular at the moment. When combined with other neutral colours, such as beige or brown, it works to create a relaxing and timeless space. Try combining tiles in different shades on the walls and floors to create a serene atmosphere.

Blues and greens. These colours are commonly associated with calm and coolness. However, blue or green tiles in soft tones can be used on walls or as accents, while lighter shades could be more suitable for flooring.

Combinations of textures in bathroom tiles

A mix of textures and patterns in bathroom tiles can add dimension and character. These are some ideas to merge different surfaces and designs:

(1) PAR-KER Gent Roble, Stone 3D Roble and XTONE Astana Grey by Porcelanosa. (2) Retro Blanco ceramic by L'Antic Colonial. (3) Coral Topo and Spiga Coral Topo by Porcelanosa (4) Faces H4 in black and silver by L'Antic Colonial.

Tiles with relief. Tiles with relief add depth and texture to your walls. They are usually installed in specific areas, such as by the bath or behind the sink.

Metro tiles. Metro tiles are a classic choice and are commonly used in brick patterns. Combine black and white tiles for a modern look, or experiment with colour and design to create your own unique effect.

Mosaics. Mosaics are versatile and come in a wide variety of patterns and designs. Including a mosaic to match the rest of the bathroom tiles in the shower or on an accent wall will create an exclusive and sophisticated look.

Hexagonal tiles. Hexagonal tiles are on trend and are used to create geometric patterns. Combining hexagonal tiles in different shades and sizes can also create a modern and dynamic appearance.

Bathroom style

The style of a bathroom also influences the choice of tiles for both floor and walls. These are some tile combinations that suit different bathroom styles:

(1) PAR-KER Smart Tanzania Nut, Metropolitan Deco Grass and XTONE Calacatta Gold by Porcelanosa. (2) PAR-KER Gent Roble, Deco Coral Acero and Coral Acero by Porcelanosa. (3) Metropolitan Deco Grass, Metropolitan Snow and Heritage White by L’Antic Colonial. (4) Nazari Fes and Nazari Casablanca Brillo by L’Antic Colonial.

Classic. A classic-style bathroom could include neutral ceramic tiles inspired by marble or glass. These can be combined into chessboard patterns or decorative borders for an added touch of elegance.

Modern. Large format tiles combining neutral colours such as white or grey are ideal for a modern, minimalist bathroom. These rectangular pieces look clean and spacious.

Rustic: Ceramic elements inspired by stone and wood are the best suited to a rustic bathroom. When combined with earthy textiles and wrought iron details, these materials create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Mediterranean. Tiles in shades of blue, green and white create the perfect Mediterranean-style bathroom. Combine them with textured pieces and finish your space with the incorporation of ocean-themed decorative elements.

Vintage: Retro Metro tiles are ideal for a vintage-style bathroom. They can be combined with antique taps and bathroom furniture to achieve a truly authentic look.

Tile size and layout

Choosing the tile size and arrangement is another crucial aspect when creating the right combination for your bathroom. These are the most common options:

(1) XLIGHT Alpi Verde, XLIGHT Ewood Camel and Hannover Bone by Porcelanosa. (2) Fiji Ocher ceramic tiles by L'Antic Colonial. (3) Touch Bottle and Touch Pearl by L'Antic Colonial. (4) Faces H1 Blanco ceramic and Colors Aluminium Jean mosaic by L’Antic Colonial.

Large tiles. Large format tiles can make a bathroom look more clean and spacious. In addition, large bathroom tile combinations offer a fresh and minimalist look in modern bathrooms, curating a spacious and contemporary vibe

Small tiles. Small tiles are ideal for creating detailed patterns or visual accents. Place them in combination with other bases in specific areas, or over the entire surface

Rectangular tiles. The combination of rectangular tiles in stacked or herringbone arrangements is especially suitable if you're looking for a surprising visual pattern. This is an excellent choice for shower areas or for sink panels.

Hexagonal tiles. Hexagonal tiles can be used in a variety of ways, from the classic honeycomb pattern to your own custom design. The combination of these pieces is therefore ideal to create a modern and elegant look in the bathroom.

Accessories and details

It is important that the accessories and equipment, such as taps, mirrors and furniture, complement the combination of tiles chosen in the bathroom. The choice of finish, such as chrome, brushed nickel or bronze, can influence the overall style of the space. It is also important to consider the lighting as it can enhance or soften the colours and textures.

Inspiration and creativity

When it comes to combining tiles for your bathroom, creativity and the search for inspiration are crucial. This is one of the most important and exciting parts of the interior design process. With an appropriate design, you can achieve a bathroom that reflects your own personal style while adapting to the needs of its users.

In conclusion, the choice of floor and wall tiles, the combination of colours, textures and patterns, and the attention to detail and proper maintenance all come together in this decision. With a touch of originality and a little planning, we can transform your bathroom into your favourite room in the house. The combination of tiles is the key.
