Nowadays we have so many choices when it comes to bathroom wall tiles that it becomes easy to forget about the basics. The truth is you do not always need to use patterned tiles or mosaic tiles to get extraordinary results. Metro tiles, also known as subway tiles or underground tiles, are the perfect blank canvas to let your style shine through – the following pictures from @eatwearwander are clear proof of this.
Besides adding brightness and cleanliness, the metro tiles have a timeless and everlasting appeal that works well with any design style. You can use them to decorate a bathroom in many different ways, such as the following two: one more industrial and modern and the other more glamorous and classy. Choose your favourite and let us know in the comments below.
1. A black and white bathroom with big impact and modern style
This guest bathroom is proof that small spaces can have a huge impact on your home. The metro tiles, all the way up to the ceiling, look stylish and modern and, combined with black taps and fittings, they give a likeable industrial touch.
How to make sure the white wall is not visually monotonous?
To make the white wall more appealing, you can lay your metro tiles in different striking ways, allowing for maximum creativity when installing the materials. In particular, the herringbone pattern is a great way to add a little movement and a touch of the unexpected to any space.
Don’t forget to take care of the details
White bathrooms do not have to be boring and repetitive. Adding greenery, vases, candles, and other decorative elements can change the look and feel of the room in an instant, giving personality to an otherwise plain design. In particular, pottery is currently enjoying a revival due to a renewed interest in handcrafted objects and their timeless beauty.
2. An Amalfi Coast inspired bathroom full of green and gold décor
Looking for a more glamorous look? If so, then choose gold for brassware and accessories. It gives a sense of opulence to any space and works perfectly with green shades, as you can see below.
Combine metro tiles with natural stone
Find elegance in every detail and mix different types of tile in your bathroom, such as metro tiles and marble effect tiles. This powerful combination will add a touch of sophistication and class to any white arrangement.
Display art without hanging it
One of the most popular ways to display artwork these days is by leaning it on the floor, or on a shallow shelf. The result is casual yet classy and incredibly easy for anyone to achieve. You only need to select which drawing you want to display, frame it and lay it on or against a flat surface.
