If you’ re in the process of fitting a new bathroom or simply upgrading your old one and you want to be in line with the latest Bathroom tiles trends for 2016 the article below is definitely a must.Based on several researches and a tile exhibition in the capital of fashion– Italy, here are this years shapes and colours that will make you bathroom stand out.
1. Fragmented tiles
Tiles with irrational rectangular and square forms are a big hit this year. The mixture of different geometrical shapes and sizes provides a stunning effect. Choose the right colour and you will be amazed every time you set foot in your bathroom.
2. Show the bricks < /strong>< p > Now don’ t get me wrong here, I don’ t mean to advice you of stripping your entire wall until the bricks show up.Instead go with the beautifully styled brick tiles.There are endless varieties of shapes and sizes but as far as the trend goes– the natural they look the better.
3. The Chevron Style
To be honest this is quite an old style, but a classic, and with a few modern touches like the surface and the colour of the tiles it produces wonderful results. These tiles are usually easy to install and can be purchased in natural wood or stone enhancing the looks of your bathroom.
4. The Straight Line
The line element is in the basics of every design. This year the various variations of the straight line are reaching huge popularity amongst the bathroom tiles. Whether it would be vertical, horizontal, intercepting or 3D the effect is guaranteed to be one to remember.
5. Bathroom Art
This is one trend that goes a bit more on the complicated side of things – art over tiles. Here you can choose to paint each tile in a different way or to draw a huge painting all over the wall. This would be a particularly good trend for someone who is deeply into art – the plus side you can even draw it on your own.
6. The “Soft” Tile
Introduce softness and warmth into the cold world of the bathroom. This is a 2016 trend that aims at the relaxation and comfort. By tiling your walls with sandblasted marble, stripped wood or any other imperfect material that shows “imperfections” you will add a touch of warmth and softness. Some watery colours and shades can enhance the feeling as well.
7. A Black and White world
Tile your bathroom in greyscale – it became increasingly popular in recent years and of course there is no way that the black and white gamma can miss out on the bathroom. It would be some kind of a different world experience indulging into a room without any colour in it. It would be quite demanding for the sanitary ware as well – presumably everything inside should be Inox or similar.
8. The Power of 3D
We absolutely can’t miss the 3D effect when it comes to our bathrooms. Nowadays the flat surface is kind of boring and what better way to make your wet room more entertaining than 3D walls. No superman will not emerge to the rescue, but a mixture of different shapes and sizes will definitely keep you busy while you perform your morning routine.
9. Size Does Matter
When it comes to tiles at least. In recent years the ceramic pieces of art that we use to design our bathrooms with are constantly getting bigger and this is definitely a trend. The fewer the grout the cleaner the looks. This bathroom trend would be perfect for someone who loves the perfectly clean look. Your wall will look almost painted but with the durability and the lovely look of a tile.
10. The Deep Blue
Here is one trend for the ocean lovers. Tile your bathroom in aquatic colours and submerge into the deep ocean. Those tiles often provide the “larger room effect” so it will be perfect for a smaller wet room. Those colours are quite relaxing and as we now know a top 2016 trend.
