If you saw the recent reveal of my parents’ bathroom that I decorated for them, you may have noticed that I’m on a bit of a patterned tile kick.
Patterned tiles for the floor of a bathroom have been trending for a while now, and it’s not hard to see why. I mean, they look gorgeous. They add so much visual interest and character to a bathroom, which can be a fairly white and sterile room if we don’t splash out a bit. (Ha – very punny!)
A bathroom is actually an ideal space to make a decorating statement, because it’s a small area, and it’s visually separated from the rest of the house. So while you wouldn’t tile your entire home in any of these choices, patterned tiles provide a moment of drama and delight that can elevate your bathroom from “sterile and functional” to a room that feels as decadent as a day spa.
The concept is pretty simple – the party is on the floor, so keep the walls white and pared-back. Subway tile is an ever-popular choice that pairs beautifully with patterned tile. If you don’t want the room to look too busy, quiet the tile with white grout to create a textural impression rather than a competing pattern.
The beauty of patterned tiles is that you can make a style statement that is all your own. Patterned tiles can be vivid and Moroccan, rustic and farmhouse, classical and floral, or modern and geometric. There’s no wrong choice – just what you love and are drawn to.
Whenever I’m collecting inspiration for a project, I always pin like crazy first. So today, I wanted to share with you some “Pinspiration” to fuel your dreams of a patterned tile bathroom floor. (You may even see my bathroom design as you scroll on by…) ?
As you scroll, think about which tiles you are most drawn to. Can you see a pattern there? (Oh my – the puns are getting better and better.)
But seriously – pinpointing your faves is a great way to hone in on your personal tastes and style.
And even if you have no immediate plans to install a patterned bathroom floor, it’s always fun to enjoy a bit of decorating eye candy!
