More Bathroom Tile Trends to Consider
Planning on upgrading your bathroom? Maybe you have been looking at blogs and magazines for bathroom design inspiration. Or perhaps you are starting to draw up your shopping list. But before you finalize your design and shopping list, here are a few more bathroom tile trends that you may want to check out.
What’s hot now among designers and property owners? Although the new bathroom tiles that are becoming increasingly popular are diverse, one common thread you will notice is the emphasis on both shape and texture. Additionally, the availability of new technologies has made it possible for designers to explore new designs and materials.
Triangle tiles are not exactly novel. However, this classic shape has experienced a resurgence in popularity of late due to the visual textures and lines these can instantly provide. It certainly helps that there are hundreds of colors to choose from. On top of that, the shape of the tiles lends itself to creativity and different design possibilities, ranging from more subdued ones like stripes and squares to more creative patterns like pinwheels and Chevron.
Carved tiles encompass different styles and textures, from angular to soft curves. You can buy these tiles from local dealers or request manufacturers for bespoke designs for that added unique and exclusive feel. Although these tiles mimic the look and feel of concrete, the use of 3D technology allows for a high degree of customization. However, be aware that these tiles are heavy, weighing as much as two pounds apiece, and you may have to wait a month or two for bespoke orders.
Want to infuse a sense of Japanese aesthetics to your bathroom wall? Consider origami mosaic tiles for your bathroom. These tiles utilize pioneering cast glass techniques which result in delicate angles which mimic origami.
Another tile trend that is being increasingly used not only for bathrooms, but also for backsplashes and feature walls, is the use of glass mosaic tiles. Available in marble and glass, these hexagonal tiles are available in six colors including white, gray, and blue.
Wood is not exactly the first material that you would think of when creating a shopping list for your bathroom upgrade due to the material’s poor performance in high moisture areas. But with the release of wood-inspired tiles, you may have to rethink that idea. These tiles use bold wood grain to mimic the texture of real wood.
