As Preston’s leading tiling experts, we are always up to date with tiling trends and developments, here at Tiles 2 Go. And we know how important it is to get the right effect with your tiling, whether it’s the kitchen, bathroom, hallway or conservatory. One of the tiling trends that has seen a resurgence in recent years is the use of border tiles. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about the different options for bathroom border tiling.

What are border tiles?

Border tiles are tiles that are used to break up the colour and style of a single wall, by adding either a horizontal or vertical band of different tiles. This can be incredibly effective in any room, but for this guide, we will focus on the bathroom.

What are the effective options for bathroom border tiling?

In many bathrooms, the tiles are generally white, or a light cream or beige colour. And this is the perfect plain canvas to make a statement with. Border tiles can be used to break up this colour, and inject some personality into your bathroom. Some interesting uses of border tiles can include:

  • using patterned border tiles- running horizontally around the room, or vertically, up a feature wall, patterned border tiles can suit both traditional and contemporary bathrooms, depending on the pattern you choose. While a floral pattern will be better suited to a traditional bathroom, a geometric pattern can suit a contemporary one. Whichever patterned tile you choose, make sure that the colours match either the primary or secondary colour in the bathroom.
  • metro border tiles- if you want something more understated, and less punchy, than patterned tiles, a simple row of metro tiles can be incredibly effective. Whether you choose a complementary colour, or a contrasting colour, metro border tiles can help you add character to your bathroom.
