Large Format Tiles
Large tiles, often 50cm x 50cm (or larger!), have become increasingly popular. Offering a sleek, modern look with fewer grout lines than would be expected with traditionally sized tile, as well as aiding to make your bathroom space look bigger than it is, it’s easy to see why so many designers are incorporating larger tiles into their homes!
Subway-style Tiles with a Twist
Classic subway tiles - named after their origins in New York subway stations - are still in vogue and they are now often used in unconventional patterns like herringbone or vertical stacking. There is also a new wave of brick-shaped tiles on the market like our Marrakesh Brick tiles, a variation of a typical subway tile, but inspired by hand-made Morrocan bejmat tiles, they are an ideal example of how subway tile options have expanded to include other brick format tile designs. Coloured subway tiles are still very popular, a great way of adding a pop of colour to the bathroom – think of Little Italy’s gorgeous Burgundy colour!
Intricate and colourful patterns - think exotic Moroccan, Mediterranean, or bold Geometric designs - can make a dazzling statement in your bathroom. These flexible, multi-use tiles can be used as an elegant pathway drawing your eye along a floor, or as a feature wall, a great way to create a unique focal point within your home...
Natural stone tiles like Marble, Limestone and Terracotta, look great in bathrooms. With their gorgeous aesthetic, they can add elegance and sophistication to any room – but keep in mind that they do require a lot of maintenance, which is why Baked Tiles has sourced beautiful tiles with the appearance of these natural products, but the practical durability of a porcelain base. So you get all the aesthetic beauty, but none of the laborious sealing and maintenance!
Hexagon-shaped tiles are trendy for both floor and wall applications; they can create a stunning visual effect, giving your bathroom a contemporary and artistic touch. Porcelain hexagon tiles - such as our Country Hexagon range - are often anti-slip and offer enhanced durability and suitability for wet-rooms.
Mural tiles can really add a sense of style to a bathroom, they can be used to add decorative detail to your walls and with some designs floors too. With breathtaking, intricate designs you can add a flowing pattern and texture to an otherwise neutral bathroom. Our Tuscany Botanical and Grain Leaves Murals are some of the most gorgeous designs on the market, introducing them to a design scheme is a guaranteed way of creating a distinctive and impressive bathroom.
