With all that in mind, you can see why it’s important to have a bathroom that fills you with joy every time you take up the porcelain throne. If you’re looking for design inspiration for your new loft’s bathroom, read on.
The brick wall look
These tiles, particularly when black set within a white bathroom as seen here, make an elegant and eye-catching statement wall. We really like how cohesive it looks too: they’ve picked an artwork which fits in with it perfectly and the tiles and then picked a storage container which matches the yellow in the painting and really pops against the background. It’s a reminder that not everything in your bathroom has to be functional. These tiles can go well with a more traditionalist theme too, like this.
Bring in some nature
Potted plants are popular in interior design this year, as is the tropical look. Why not bring a bit of greenery into your bathroom too? While we think this looks great, you can be more subtle. All you need is a few small plants. Just make sure they’re ones that can cope with the mist from your shower!
Instead of having a walk-in shower, how about tiling and waterproofing your whole room? Mount your shower head high, maybe even on the ceiling, so you can stand in the middle of the room and make maximum use of the extra space. Combined some plants, you could even make it feel like you’re showering outdoors! Wet rooms are also perfect for smaller bathrooms, as this avoids shrinking the space with partitions.
Rustic and industrial
Exposed copper piping, worn woods and concrete accents are another trending bathroom style this year. You can see an example here. This goes well with the brass, gold or pewter taps and showerheads which are appearing all over Pinterest.
Make small spaces look bigger with clever use of tiling
If you tile the side of your bath with the same tiles as the wall behind it, you can trick the eye and make it hard to tell the difference. We also recommend light colours, small pedestal or wall mounted sinks, and minimising the amount of clutter, to make the room look as big as possible.
Patterned or geometric tiles
The Mediterranean look is definitely in this year, with the Moroccan and Southern Spanish inspired tiles making waves. Whether you go for warm summery tones, as seen here on Pinterest, or opt for a modern twist with a monochrome look, as seen here, a wow factor is almost guaranteed. Geometric patterns are also hot at the moment, and this can be informed by the shape of the tiles themselves, with hexagon-shaped tiles, like here, here and here, giving a very contemporary feel.
