A look at how bold tiles trans­form the most oft-ig­nored room

Pat­tern Recog­ni­tion

Here’s proof that the most util­i­tar­ian room in the house can be both func­tional and dec­o­ra­tive. Sarah Brown talks to de­sign­ers who are mak­ing creative tile choices that trans­form this oft-ig­nored room into the most-talked-about space in the house Bath­rooms are hav­ing a mo­ment, the per­fect small-scale can­vas for home­own­ers and de­sign­ers look­ing to im­bue a stand-alone room with colour, tex­ture, and per­son­al­ity. Whether the goal is bold, re­lax­ing, or so­phis­ti­cated, there’s a tile for that. Pretty and prac­ti­cal, tiles are be­ing used on floors and walls alike to cre­ate a one-of-a-kind ex­pe­ri­ence. With a dizzy­ing ar­ray of choices, the sky’s the limit. What are you wait­ing for?

This page Glam­our is the name of the game in this stun­ning en­suite ren­o­va­tion from Veron­ica Martin De­sign Stu­dio. The luxe wall and floor look like mar­ble but are ac­tu­ally porce­lain tile from Ciot. “Porce­lain is re­ally chang­ing the way we de­sign these days,” ex­plains Martin. “The real­is­tic rep­re­sen­ta­tion of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, but with more dura­bil­ity and ease of main­te­nance, is a game changer for my in­dus­try.” Pol­ished nickel ac­ces­sories add warmth, match­ing well with the gold tones of the pretty crys­tal chan­de­lier.
