Anyone in search of bathroom tile ideas should give the trends of AW20 a bit of attention. The best thing about the start of autumn (apart from enjoying a bowl of soup in a candlelit living room under a chunky knit throw) is scrolling through new season trends, and when we saw the new bathroom tile inspiration from some of our favourite brands, we nearly squealed with delight.
So if you’re on the hunt for new ideas for your bathroom, take note from these five inspiring designs. From two-tone walls to glossy finishes, there’s plenty of options from the AW20 collections, whether you’re after clean and crisp or dark and moody.
Want more? Our small bathroom tile ideas will make even the tiniest of spaces feel stylish.
1. Go glossy with a glazed design
We never thought we’d be rooting for glossed bathrooms, but the new Zellica collection from Topps Tiles has us converted. Inspired by majolica pottery, the rustic-feel tiles have a glazed finish for the ultimate combination of modern and traditional. With a range of colours, including this gorgeous earthy bronze, we’re sold.
2. Opt for luxe jewel colours
As much as we love the spa-like natural stone and traditional monochrome that’s inspired bathroom design for years, we’re welcoming the introduction of gorgeous jewel tones into the space, like these forest green beauties from Topps Tiles. They’re super classy and add a sense of grandeur to a room, but if you’re normally more of a minimalist, pair with white and natural wood to avoid overcomplicating the space.
3. Try a twist on the classic metro tile
We love a metro tile, but this season we’re ditching the classic design in favour of these ceramic Concorde tiles from Porcelain Superstore. The pointed edges add a subtle twist and create a smooth finish on this bathroom wall, and we love the deep blue colour. We reckon it’d look even better with a contrasting tile thrown in here and there – a simple white or paler blue, maybe.
4. Get creative with a two-tone scheme
You’ve done the whole two-tone thing with paint, but how about using the same concept in your bathroom with tiles? This design from Walls & Floors uses their unique Pickett bevelled tiles – a cross between brick and hexagon-shaped tiles – to create the effect, and a patterned floor stops the room from feeling too clean cut.
5. Experiment with out-of-the-ordinary shapes
We’ve had hexagonal tiles, and now these curved Drops tiles from Porcelain Superstore are the next logical step. Inspired by classic Moroccan fan tiles, this distinctive design is a softer take on a sharp-edged shape like a traditional metro tile, and looks beautiful paired with traditional and modern suites alike. Unique yet subtle, we’ve completely fallen for this elegant idea.
