If your bathroom has seen better days, 2021 could be the year to finally do something about it.
After all, there’s nothing worse than having to wash and clean yourself in an area you don’t feel as comfortable in as you used to – sometimes you simply have to say enough is enough and do something about it.
However, when it comes to redesigning your bathroom, choosing the right tiles to use can be a difficult decision for many. This is not only because of how frequently trends come and go, but also due to the huge number of designs there are available to choose from.
So, with this in mind, we thought we’d help make the decision process easier for you. Join us as we run through four of 2021’s most popular tile trends, highlighting the key ones to think about if you’re planning on redesigning your bathroom later this year.
1. Subway Tiles
While some people may think the traditional design of subway designs may be boring, 2021 looks to be the year they’re brought back into fashion.
This is due to the new range of sizes they are fast-becoming available in – much thicker, longer and larger than we have seen before.
These styles, combined with a contrasting grout colour, can now transform dull into delightful, especially when installed in such a way to create a unique pattern or mosaic pattern within the bathroom.
2. Hexagonal Tiles
While on the topic of unusually shaped tiles, hexagonal porcelain tiles are becoming more and more popular with consumers around the UK.
Therefore, if you’re keen on giving your bathroom a bit more of a geometric pattern, hexagonal-shaped tiles can do exactly that, creating a truly unique look in your bathroom.
Whether you choose to use them on the floor of your shower or on a standalone wall, these tiles provide an abundance of choice over the style you want to achieve for your bathroom.
You could even go one step further by combining an array of differently coloured tiles to create elaborate accents in tune with your bathroom’s overall colour scheme.
3. Matte Tiles
Another type of tile which appears to have significantly grown in popularity in recent times is the matte tile. These tiles offer a soft but highly powerful style that won’t look too overwhelming in a bathroom, like some glossy ceramics can.
And, while they may be slightly duller in appearance, they more than make up for it in the practicality of their design, with water stains invisible on them when they are installed correctly.
This, in turn, makes them to ideal choice for flooring in the bathroom, especially if you have a lot of room to play with.
4. Graphic Patterns
Retro is officially back.
More and more people are now investing in graphic patterns for their bathroom tiles, utilising a range of colours, patterns and designs to really show off their space.
Victorian tiles, for instance, offer homeowners the creative freedom to put their imagination to use and come up with bold designs truly unique to their own home.
What’s more, these patterns are being seen on both ceramic and porcelain-style tiles, enabling you to control just how glossy or bold you want your designs to come across.
