Plain or decorative

While plain tiles can be used effectively, they are more understated than patterned or decorative tiles. As a result, they are perfect for either contemporary or traditional bathrooms that need to be uniform. Alternatively, if you want to create blocks of colour, plain tiles are perfect for this.

Patterned tiles or decorative tiles really stand out and draw attention. However, too many decorative tiles can be distracting and visually confusing. Consequently, whether it’s a contemporary or traditional bathroom, you will need use decorative tiles wisely. Feature walls, shower enclosure spaces, or splash-backs can be a good way to use these.

Matt or gloss

In your bathroom, safety should be an important feature. For that reason, we would suggest that your floor tiles are matt finish. This is because, even when they get wet, they will be less slippy than glossy tiles.

For your walls however, the choice is open. Both matt and gloss tiles can be perfect for walls. Having said that, gloss tiles will reflect light, and may be slightly easier to clean, making them a practical choice for any bathroom, contemporary or traditional.
