If you favour trends, here is what’s com­ing to a tile store near you…

PAT­TERN Pat­terned en­caus­tic tiles can be a knock­out bath­room fea­ture. If block colour is more your taste, try a dif­fer­ent lay, such as bas­ket weave.

COLOUR “Colour is mak­ing a come­back in bath­rooms,” says in­te­rior de­signer Naomi Nimmo. The pop­u­lar­ity of blue is go­ing to rise fur­ther mov­ing into 2018, pre­dicts Beau­mont Tiles’ Rachel Gild­ing. “Pair blue tiles with bronze, crisp whites and nat­u­ral-look tiles such as tim­ber or stone,”

she says. “Bring it all to­gether with ei­ther gold or brushed bronze tap­ware for a serene area which will stand the test of time.” TEX­TURE Dif­fer­ent tex­tures and ma­te­ri­als make for key at­mos­phere mak­ers. Think moody me­tallics for a mod­ern edge, or smooth mar­ble, with its time­less swirls and calm hues, for clas­sic so­phis­ti­ca­tion. CRE­AT­ING SCALE “Large-for­mat op­tions are in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar for a seam­less look, while tiny tiles such as penny rounds and fin­ger tiles can help to cre­ate a big im­pres­sion,“says Rachel.
