Bathroom Tile Ideas 2018

Bathroom Tile Ideas 2018

As with most things in interior design, fashions come and go for bathroom tiles. If you’re planning on renovating your bathroom, then choosing the right tiles is an essential part of creating the best overall look– and you’re going to want to ensure you’re as up-to-date as possible.

While the year may be young, it’s already possible to establish the latest up-to-date trends for bathroom tile ideas. Below are a few considerations you’ll want to keep in mind when buying your bathroom tiles from us; follow these, and you can be sure of making a perfect, modern choice for your home…

Neutrals are the dominant trend

Bathroom tile designs of the past decade have been rather… bright. Bright colours; bright mosaic patterns; bright grout. The trends of 2018 suggest that times are changing; the brightness is being turned down, and neutrals are making their presence known.

Neutral coloured tiles — such as sandy browns, yellows, and creams — may not be the most obvious choice, but there’s no doubt they look absolutely stunning in a bathroom. These colours create a calm, relaxed feel, and are also easier to clean than their high-gloss cousins. We have a whole host of impressive neutral tiles at our showroom, so pop down and you can see how great this colour choice looks in person.

Geometric shapes finally come to the bathroom

Geometric shapes have been incredibly popular in interior design for the past few years, and 2018 looks to be the year when that popularity spreads to the bathroom. For most of us, when asked to picture a bathroom tile, we imagine a square shape of a recognisable size– but not anymore.

The tiles that are setting the trends in 2018 are geometric in shape, with hexagons a particular favourite. One of the great benefits of hexagonal tiles is that they create a stunning “honeycomb” effect, which can look closer to artwork than a standard wall of tiles. Opting for non-square tile shapes is a surefire way to keep your bathroom ideas right up to date.

Rough and matte finishes

Finally, 2018 is the year when bathroom design trends have turned their back on high-gloss. High-gloss tiles have been the gold standard for years, but the shift in preference is obvious: rough and matte finishes rule the day in modern trends.

One of the major benefits of matte finishes is that they are far easier to keep clean than high-gloss, which has a tendency to show every fingerprint and water droplet. If you’re renovating your bathroom and want to ensure the finished look is a byword for modernity, then rough or matte tiles are an essential component you’re not going to want to skip.

In conclusion

If bathroom tile trends in 2018 could be summed up in a single word, it’s “muted”– muted colours and muted finishes, with geometric shapes providing a little interest into the overall design. Visit our showroom and you’ll see the wide range of options that allow you to utilise the three trends above, which will help to guarantee you a thoroughly modern result that you’ll love.
