Bathroom Tile Ideas - Express Your Style
Original bathroom tile ideas can add a special touch that turns even standard tiles into something unique
Or you may want to create your own tiles - unlike any other available on the market.
The tile strip illustrated here was custom made according to the homeowners' design. A combination of materials was used in a mosaic pattern: slate, granite, pebbles and marble. Whilst there may be nothing unusual in the materials used to create the tile, no one else will have the same bathroom tile design.
However! It is the addition of the copper strips that draw the eye and make these tiles really special. (A sealant was applied over the tiles to prevent tarnishing.)
You could use so many exciting combinations in your choice of materials: bamboo, acrylic, glass beads, galvanized iron ... Especially when used on walls, as the materials won't have the same wear and tear as floor tiles.
Large matt terracotta tiles are combined with glossy mosaic. The effect is accentuated by using contrasting colors - the warmth and earthy tones of the terracotta against the aquatic blues.
The finishing touch is the handcrafted tile mural. It picks up beautifully on
the different hues in the mosaic tiles. It's such a fun element and not
difficult to make.
Note: You could offset your handcrafted tiles from the wall for a three dimensional feel.
You can get really creative with different shapes, textures and color in your bathroom designs.
With the huge selection of tiles available, there are so many
combinations that you can experiment with to come up with your own unique
bathroom tile design ideas.
