Unearth inventive flooring ideas for your bathroom with patterned tiles, ceramic floors and more Steering away from the utilitarian zone, bathrooms have become the central point of relaxation in a home space, irrespective of their size or grandeur. Bathroom flooring here becomes crucial, because this aspect can do so much for the space.
Tiny bathroom? No problem. This translates to a big budget for a small space. You can choose from the most expensive materials, an option you can’t make use of in your other living spaces. Lavastone, for instance. Bought from the volcanic slopes from Italy and France, hardened lava adds so much depth to the bathroom and being both water and stand-proof—is functional too.
Inventive Tile Lay Patterns
There are three steps to this: Firstly, opting for rectangular tiles rather than square ones. Secondly, integrating 2-3 different colours of tiles (not more, not less). Finally, tiling them in a slanted manner in place of usual horizontals.
The colour combinations of these rectangular tiles and choice of tile is completely at your discretion. Make use of unique lay patterns, for they instantly uplift an average bathroom to its slightly more eclectic version.
Sustainable architecture is so much in demand. From the use of sustainable raw materials in miniature home accessories to the bricks in mammoth architectural projects, eco-friendly home trends have become common.
It then seems only apt to use eco-friendly materials for our bathroom floors. Functionality need not be of question, however, because there are durable flooring materials that happen to be eco-friendly too!
Linoleum or cork are two such materials (both water-proof and durable) and are very different from each other. Incorporate one of them into your bathroom’s wet (shower) area. The difference in texture from when you step onto the bathroom’s dry and wet areas will pack in a neat punch.
Offering a long-term solution for people who love exuberant prints (like large florals or zebra stripes) but eventually tire of them, the solid print consists of your favourite print alongside a complementary shade of colour.
Bring this simple design technique onto your bathroom’s floors by combining delightful printed tiles with neutral ones. This will liven your bathroom and keep it grounded, at the same time.
