What are the different options for free standing baths and tiling combinations?

Free standing baths are often the focal point of a stylish bathroom. From slipper baths to roll top baths, a free standing bath is synonymous with luxury and elegance. For the biggest visual impact, this should be paired with tiles that reflect the same design practice. This could include:

  • Large format natural effect tiles- natural stone effect tiles, as well as timber effect tiles, can be a practical and stylish alternative to the real thing. With the same visual qualities it is often almost impossible to tell timber effect tiles apart from a hardwood floor, and stone effect tiles apart from a real stone floor. This means that you can create a stunning natural looking space, in the colours and design that you want. This can compliment a freestanding bath, creating the perfect environment for the bath to steal the show.
  • Stunning contemporary patterned tiles- another option is to choose contemporary patterned tiles. These can have abstract, geometric or even floral patterns that are sure to draw the eye and direct attention directly to your free standing bath. These tiles can be used effectively and floor tiles under and around the bath area, or as wall tiles behind this.
  • Traditional patterned tiles- let’s not forget that freestanding baths, like slipper baths, are far from contemporary in use in our homes. And for this reason a free standing bath can be the perfect option for a traditional bathroom space. This should be complemented with traditional tiles including traditional patterned tiles or more traditional tiling layouts.
