If you’re planning a bathroom remodel, remember that contrast is one of the fundamental principles of interior design. A design that uses contrast thoughtfully will be visually interesting, striking and cohesive, while one that lacks contrast will seem flat and lifeless.
To include contrast in your bathroom design plan, play with color, shape and texture for a space that will be eye-catching and timeless. Let’s take a look at five stunning bathroom tiles that will bring the texture and contrast your bathroom needs.
1. Shibusa Porcelain Tile
A unique porcelain tile inspired by bamboo, Shibusa features a wood-look linear texture to contrast the curved and polished surfaces traditionally used in bathrooms. A hex tile option is on-trend, giving the wood-look aesthetic a twist and adding shape and contemporary style to bathroom walls.
2. Touch Porcelain Tile
Linen tile is another way to add unique texture to your bathroom design. Touch is one such tile, with a visual texture and tactile look. Several neutral color options are perfect for giving your bathroom subtle, soft contrast when you don’t want to get too bold. Plus, the fabric-like texture instantly adds a sense of warmth and comfort, ensuring your bathroom doesn’t feel cold and sterile.
3. Unica Porcelain Tile
If you love the look of natural stone, Unica is a porcelain lookalike that uses Digital Print Technology to closely emulate the appearance and texture of real stone. With an unexpected style that blends marble and cement looks, use Unica tile to add sophistication and a cool yet natural feel.
4. 3D Ceramic Tile
Multi-dimensional shape options make 3D a versatile choice for adding lots of texture to your bathroom walls. Create a chic, elegant accent wall behind the bathtub or use it on shower walls for a sleek look. Choose from Blade, Ribbon, Twist and Wave styles to achieve different aesthetics and bring life to white bathroom walls.
5. Castle Brick
There’s nothing cooler than an exposed brick wall, but real brick isn’t really a practical choice for the bathroom. Up the ante on your tiled bathroom design with a brick-look porcelain tile like Castle Brick. Five color choices with beautiful, natural-looking variety give this tile a classic, on-trend aesthetic that adds unexpected texture to the bathroom. This is also a great way to include color in your bathroom design, instead of simply painting the walls.
