The injection of colour, textures and style in the bathroom has led to a more interior design approach to bathroom renovation, with designers approaching projects with the complete look in mind.
‘The trend this last several years has been grey and muted backgrounds with splashes of accented colour,’ says Martin Mallon for Armatile tiles. ‘We now find stronger, bolder surfaces starting to emerge, particularly greens and blues.
At the most recent Cersaie World Tile Fair held in Bologna, Italy the desire to bring nature into the home was unmistakeably the leading trend among tile manufacturers. Many new organic, nature-themed ranges with leafy plant prints were prevalent on displays, and these were combined with soft ivory and light cream tones providing comforting warmth. Alongside this, small format tiles in herringbone patterns were heavily utilised for proliferations of colour that were bursting out to create eye-catching wall and floor features with the sole aim of energising homeowners who wish to personalise their interior design spaces.’
Preziosi from RAK Ceramics is a luxurious, stylish surface that is inspired by the natural beauty of marble. The porcelain tiles, available in a choice of five colourways as well as a range of sizes and thicknesses, are extremely hardwearing and simple to clean, making this a practical, stylish and flexible surface solution.

‘Long gone are the days of just going for a plain white bathroom,’ comments Lorraine Kelly of Bathshack. ‘One of the latest trends we are seeing here at bathshack is a rise in people adding more colour to the bathroom. We are seeing an increasing number of customers opting for black going for a monochrome style or adding a pop of colour by simply opting for something different in a vanity unit. Vanity units can come in a range of colours such as blush pink, yellow , blue and much more. If you are unsure where to start with designing your bathroom visiting your local bathroom store will give you plenty of ideas to start. Pinterest is also full of amazing colour popping ideas for your bathroom!’
