A Floor Less Ordinary
Looking for something a little bit different? Then why not bring the textured floor trend directly into your bathroom. In the past a feature tile effect was considered stylish for the bathroom wall and sometimes used as an accent on the backsplash in a kitchen. Today this design whim has gone from novel walls to mainstream floors. From traditional inspired designs through to contemporary and funky patterns, get the inspiration you are looking for to create a floor less ordinary as well as find out how to effectively incorporate design chic into your own home.
Visual Surface Impact
The importance of texture, both visual and tactile cannot be understated when decorating your bath. Texture is the thing that makes a room pop as it has the power to make a massive impact by adding dimension to any interior. It’s what brings a perfectly ordinary design up to enviable levels of professionalism and can transform a mundane surface into a virtual piece of art. Without enough textured elements, your bathroom can feel cold and sterile and adding a lavish feature floor is the perfect solution to combat that boring space.
If you aren’t willing to experiment with colour in your bathroom then using textured floor tile to create a unique feel is a great option. The reason why feature floors work so well is because they provide the eye with something interesting to look at. Lacklustre white fixtures complimented by a patterned floor bring new breadth into the room. This decorative motif is perfect with the understated simplicity of plain walls because it adds much needed contrast.
Imitation Parquet Effect
Just as you think about how different textures work together when designing a room, it is important you think about how different patterns will work well and complement each other. One such contemporary repeat pattern is the Parquet effect. Available in traditional brown and contemporary grey, ParqTile are finished with an authentic grain effect. Mix and match these tiles to create a patchwork effect, suited perfectly to your taste. Parquet tiles can produce a unique retro look in any room. Create a feature panel, highlight an area, or use as a border to instantly change the feel of your interior space.
Skyros Delft Blue Wall and Floor Tile
Skyros is a Spanish porcelain wall and floor tile that is designed to replicate a vintage or encaustic pattern with a matt finish. The colour is more an off white on the background and the delft blue colour is mesmerizing. The individual squares are 218mm x 218mm x 10 mm in thickness. Use to create a fantastic design feature for hallways, entrances, kitchens and bathrooms. This product is suitable for inside or outside and with the matt finish will give a decent grip when wet, however, as with all tiles there will be a risk of slipping if puddles do form.
Multiple Design Options
The interesting thing about the Skyros Delft Blue wall and floor tile is that each tile varies from piece to piece. Random tiles are provided so you never know what the end result will look like. There are 10 different tiles and 4 designs per tile which means you can create 40 different designs across a wall or floor.
Retro Edwardian Renovation
One innovative way to create a feature with Skyros Delft Blue is to have fitted tiles in the middle of the floor surrounded by white tiles, this looks really modern and the tiles have some lovely blue patterns that really standout. The price is about $4.69 per tile and $24.22 per square metre and would be an ideal fit for a retro Edwardian house renovation.
