Tiling

Condé Nast House & Garden - - DESIGN SOLUTIONS -

Tiles re­main the best in­vest­ment for your bath­room. Durable, easy to clean and avail­able in al­most ev­ery colour and pat­tern imag­in­able, it is at once a func­tional and strik­ing choice. And while opt­ing for muted tones might feel like the nat­u­ral choice, there has never been a bet­ter time to step out of your com­fort zone to ex­plore new and in­ter­est­ing con­fig­u­ra­tions. Colour or pat­tern block walls and floors with tiles in dif­fer­ent tones, shapes and tex­tures for a dra­matic ef­fect. Sim­i­larly, clas­sic mo­tifs such as her­ring­bone, chevron and bas­ket weave get a high im­pact up­date when played out in con­trast­ing colour tones. In this West One Bath­rooms project (op­po­site page) ver­ti­cal strips of com­pletely dif­fer­ent tiles work to­gether seam­lessly to cre­ate one co­he­sive and mem­o­rable look.
