Bathrooms come in all different shapes and sizes. Whether you’re looking to make a space appear larger or just longing for a more open aesthetic, the choice of décor you go for will be what transforms your bathroom entirely. From large floor tiles to colour schemes that reflect natural light around the room, take a scroll through our blog post for everything you need to know about creating the illusion of more space in the bathroom using tiles.

Create an open feeling with large tiles

You might think small bathroom tiles work best in small bathrooms, however bigger is always better - at least in the tile world. Practical, stylish and long-lasting, large format tiles can trick the eye into thinking the space is larger than it actually is, this is typically due to the uninterrupted appeal of fewer grout lines.

Large format tiles come in all different styles and sizes and we have a wide selection that will certainly help you create the illusion of more space. Our stunning Aspenwood collection is perfect if a natural wood effect tile is what you’re after - measuring over a metre long, the striking range gives the illusion of texture and space whilst having all the practicalities of a hard-wearing tile. For a luxurious aesthetic, the Marmori collection is an elegant alternative - perfect for walls and floors, you can make the ultimate style statement using the striking 1200 x 600mm tiles, which have a luxurious polished finish.

Think about tile layout, textures and patterns

The layout of tiles will also make all the difference in your bathroom. Brick, stacked, mosaic and more - there are so many ways you can create a statement feature wall that also delivers an open aesthetic. A trend that is popular for creating the illusion of more space is positioning the tiles in a diagonal pattern, as this layout places emphasis on the length and width simultaneously. A similar effect can be achieved with hexagon bathroom tiles. Although this will require more planning, it can really transform the overall look of any spaces, creating a truly outstanding finish.

Our tile collection also offers a range of different shaped tiles that will create a distinct yet open feeling. Opting for the beautiful textured appeal of Cliveden in a soft white shade will add a truly visually appealing finish to traditional and contemporary bathrooms alike whilst keeping the overall look light and airy. You can finish off this look with smooth understated floor tiles to complete the scheme. Our Kingston tiles also give off a luxuriously elegant appeal to surfaces thanks to their beautiful veined marble finish.

Consider what colour to go for in the bathroom

Finally, it’s all about colour. Playing a vital role in bathrooms, the incorporation of colour can make all the difference. If you’re decorating smaller spaces and want to create that beautiful open flow throughout, then pale, neutral and understated colours are the ideal tiles to opt for. With so many designs across our collection, you can choose from the beautifully elegant finish of Marmori to the sleek and understated appeal of the Reflections White tiles. The completed look is one that will never go out of style.
