Home Bathrooms



Creating a specific style in a bathroom can easily be achieved with the right tiles and finishes, says interior architect Trisch Barnard.

1 Monochrome A black-and-white palette is timeless and creates a dramatic effect. Opt for white glazed metro wall tiles and a patterned floor tile to add more drama if you prefer.

2 Minimalist/Scandinavi­an Choose large floor and wall tiles with matching grout and minimal grout spacing of 2mm. Consider simple lines and natural wooden drawers for storage.

3 Art Deco Think rounded edges, a bit of bling and lots of intricate lines. Go for a large monochrome floor tile with painted walls and one feature wall with Art Deco mosaics. Pair this look with rounded mirrors, copper trimmings, a statement bathtub and a crystal chandelier.

4 Eclectic Octagon floor and wall tiles paired with a dark painted ceiling and wall-mounted portraits will work well together.

5 Colour blocking Choose one colour such as a muted grey, black or green and apply this to all the walls, the floor and even the ceiling. This will create a dramatic backdrop and a seamless look.

Opt for chalk tiles, but make sure that they are glazed for durability. Pair this look with shelving in matching colours and backlit mirrors to enhance the colour you have chosen as your palette.
