Luxurious bathrooms with roll-top, freestanding baths and Egyptian cotton towels are an ideal many homeowners and property developers aspire too. But while installing all the nicest fixtures and fittings, and purchasing high end accessories, will go some way towards creating a luxurious bathroom, there is a factor that is often overlooked. Bathroom tiles play an important role in determining the feel and impact of your bathroom. And here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to bathroom tiling for luxury.
Natural effect tiles
To create that luxurious, spa-like feeling in a domestic bathroom, you need to put the effort into choosing the right tiles. Natural effect tiles can be a fantastic option, especially those tiles that mirror natural stone effects like slate. For example, a shower enclosure tiled entirely with stone effect tiles can create a visually stunning bathroom feature. And a bathroom floor tiled entirely in slate effect tiles can feel extremely luxurious.
To pull this off, you need to make sure your bathroom colour scheme blends in with the natural stone effect tiles, and choose fixtures that are more contemporary. This includes basin design, as well as the toilet and shower.
If you want to mirror the luxury of a 5 star hotel, or a spa, marble effect tiles are the key to success. Designed to look exactly like real marble, with deep flecks of colour and a high gloss finish, marble effect tiles have the benefit of being naturally non-porous, so they are perfect for wet and damp environments, with only an annual sealing.
Marble effect tiles tend to light and glossy, which means in a small bathroom, they can have the added advantage of bringing light and space to the room, making it feel larger than it really is.
