What are the advantages of monochrome tiling for the bathroom?

In bathrooms, the fixtures and appliances tend to be all white. This means that white tiles have often been used to create a blank canvas kind of effect. While this might be great if you are renting a property, it doesn’t instill character or personality. And if you own your own home, you might be looking for something a little bit different. Pairing black and white tiles together creates a dramatic and striking effect, and there are a number of advantages to this, including:

  • Stylish design- black and white tiles can be combined in a wide variety of ways to create a striking, stylish result. From chessboard floor tiling to border tiles, mosaic tiling or subway tiles, the options are endless.
  • Creating a visual feature- If you don’t want to go all out, why not just tile one wall or splashback area of your bathroom with both black and white tiles? This will create a dramatic feature that won’t overpower your bathroom, simply complement it.
  • Versatile tiling option- this tiling option is suitable for all manner of bathrooms, from the most contemporary, to the most traditional.

Floor or wall tiling?

Monochrome tiling can be effective for tiling both the floor and the walls, and even both of these used together can be incredibly effective. However, in a small bathroom, it can be a better idea to choose either the floor or the wall to use this tiling pattern, because otherwise your bathroom might become too visually busy.
