Beautiful Bathroom Flooring Ideas

Here are our top tips and ideas for creating a fresh and beautiful bathroom flooring space. We’re offering you our advice on how to choose the right flooring that is sure to last in your bathroom space. You don’t always have to compromise on style either, as there is a huge range of practical flooring options available to all of our customers!

1 – Perfect Porcelain Wood Effect

We’re starting off by introducing you to porcelain wood effect tiles. They are an incredibly practical alternative to real wood flooring, especially when used in a bathroom. Real wood flooring isn’t a good option when flooring your bathroom, it absorbs the water and over time can break down, looking old and worn in your space. Porcelain tiles however are sure to last years and years, without the worry they’ll be affected by splashes and spills. Our Nordic Pearl Wood Effect Tiles are showing us how it’s done, effortlessly adding class and style to this bathroom. They replicate real wood while still being practical and effective as porcelain tiles.

2 – Monochromatic Flooring

Monochrome schemes are perfect across bathroom spaces. They offer masses of elegance and sophistication, creating a luxurious and expensive feel to the area. When used across floor spaces, black and white patterns can add depth and texture, giving personality to your otherwise boring space. When the rest of the space is kept simple, the flooring will stand out, creating a lasting impression on your guests. Our Devonstyle Black Pattern Tiles achieve this perfectly, with the simple grey and white accessories complimenting their detailed surface.

3 – Marvellous Marble

Marble is a certain way of creating a luxurious and glamorous look and feel across your bathroom. It is a trick that has been used by designers for years and years now, and it’s popularity doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. They come in so many variations to fit everyone’s needs and styles, including different colours, shapes, sizes and even budgets, as real marble can carry a hefty price tag. It can be used to create a bold and extravagant design, or equally a simple and classy design in your bathroom space. Our Place Marble Effect Tiles are our winners for a simple scheme, with a classic grey veining running through the tile which works effortlessly to compliment most schemes.

4 – Play With Pattern With Encaustic Style Tiles

Encaustic tiles and encaustic style tiles are the perfect way of injecting some much needed colour and pattern into a bathroom. They come in such a wide range of colours and patterns that the possibilities are endless. Encaustic style tiles are a great way of creating the same luxurious and fun aesthetic without the hefty price tag of the real thing. They are also great if your aim is to create a Victorian aesthetic for your bathroom. They effortlessly combine their colour scheme and design to achieve this.

5 – Create Natural Backdrops with Stone Effect

Natural shades and textures are a growing trend in interior design at the moment, and it doesn’t stop at bathroom design. They are great for creating a simple and effective backdrop, letting the furniture and accessories you implement shine and have their own moment. Stone effect tiles can be a great way of creating a natural and simple colour palette. Neutral tones are great for creating a soft and warm environment in any room of your house.

6 – Add Vibrancy With Colour

By adding colour to your floor space you’re letting your bold and brave personality shine. It creates a sense of comfort and warmth beneath the foot, ensuring you and your guests will feel cosy. This feeling can be further enhanced by not only using a coloured tile but by using a patterned coloured tile. This adds depth and texture to the room’s floor space and is a bold and exciting way of creating that comforting atmosphere. Our Victorian Centro Viena Tiles achieve this look perfectly, as we’ve carried them up the wall, making it feel as though the décor is giving you a nice hug.

7 – Consider Vinyl Flooring

When we floor our bathroom space we tend to forget that we can still use vinyl flooring, as long as it’s the right kind. We offer a range of luxury vinyl flooring to our customers that can be used in the bathroom space. It’s best to double check this though, as not all of our vinyl flooring is suitable. If you’re unsure, just ask! We have a handy live chat feature that will be able to help. Vinyl flooring creates a comfortable feeling underfoot, as it’s not as harsh and is much softer than hard tiles.

8 – Boost the Look of Space with Large Format Tiles

If you want your bathroom space to have a broader feel, try out tiles that are in a large format. Large format tiles trick the eye to believe there’s more space than there really is. A larger room can create a sense of expense, as there is more room for accessories and furniture to be implemented, and so is a sought after attribute to have in your bathroom. Our Evolution Matt Natural Grey Floor Tiles achieve this perfectly, making it seem as though this shower space is much larger than it really is.

9 – Try Trendy Terrazzo

Terrazzo effect tiles are an ever-increasing in popularity when it comes to tiling wall and floor spaces. They can be used in a variety of ways, and so are perfectly versatile for your bathroom. We love them for both wall and floors, but their flooring capabilities are perfect for bathrooms. They create a textured look that will add depth to your area, ideal for those that want some character. Our Trend Black Terrazzo Tiles are a great option if looking for a simpler terrazzo tile, that’s still packed with masses of texture.

10 – Make the Most of Mosaics

Mosaics are the perfect way of simply and easily refreshing your bathroom space without blowing your budget. They mostly come on an easy mesh backing that makes it simple to resize and alter the shape of your tiling, to fit in all the difficult nooks and crannies in your bathroom. Mosaics are available in a variety of colours and styles, whether you’re looking for something simple and understated or bold and extravagant. Our Victoria White and Black Chequer Mosaic Tiles create a marvellous Victorian aesthetic that is complimented nicely by the traditional feet of the freestanding bath. Multi coloured mosaic tiles also open up the opportunity to create unique and bespoke patterns on your floor. Just as we have in framing the bathtub.

So, What is the Best Type of Flooring to Use in the Bathroom?

When looking to tile your bathroom floor it’s always best to stick to using porcelain tiles over ceramic ones. Porcelain is an extremely durable and dense material. Most porcelain tiles are resistant to water penetration and staining, meaning they’re sure to last longer in your bathroom space. They come in a wide variety of shapes and styles, so you don’t have to compromise on your design choices. If you’re shopping for tiles to use on your bathroom floor and you’re unsure of what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to get in contact with our friendly team here at Tile Mountain.
