National Bed Month: Five Great Tiled Looks for Bedrooms

While it may seem an unusual choice for our cooler climate, tiles can be the perfect choice for the bedroom. When used in conjunction with underfloor heating, they can be warm to the touch, radiating heat into the room without the requirement for a radiator, plus, they are more hypo-allergenic than carpet too. Not just that, they are easier to keep clean and will continue to look great with minimal care for many years. As it’s National Bed Month, we’re sharing some creative inspiration for using tiles in the bedroom if you’ve never considered the idea!

Blurred Lines

Seen in many boutique hotels, a rolltop bath in your bedroom could be a gorgeous design decision. It adds a luxurious element and creates a wonderfully intimate and relaxing space. However, carpet or wood floors are very likely to get warped or ruined with water continually splashing on them. Tiles are the natural choice here, blurring the lines between bed and bath and creating a practical water-proof surface. Our Madeira White Wood-Effect floor tiles mimic the look of white painted floorboards for an airy, fresh look.

Warm Up With Wood-Effect

Love the look of wood floors in the bedroom but not the upkeep? We stock a huge range of porcelain wood-effect tiles that mimic the look of wood but dispense with the scratching, warping, or staining that comes with real wood. You’ll be hard-pressed to tell the difference between these and the real thing but they provide the perfect option for creating a warm and welcoming look in any room in your home. In the bedroom, they can instil a rustic industrial edge or provide a clean and classy aesthetic, perfect for Scandi-lovers.

Mediterranean Minimalist

You can create the cool minimalist look of a Mediterranean hotel with our gorgeous Burren Beige limestone effect floor tiles. The look is understated and elegant while giving the illusion of space and instilling a light airy feel that will remind you of warmer climates. It bears repeating that underfloor heating will create a lovely warmth with these tiles, so you certainly don’t have to live in the Mediterranean in order to enjoy the look!

Pattern Play

And finally, why not use tiles to create a striking feature in your interiors? The beauty of tiles is that you can lay them in whatever pattern you like and here, by laying tiles in a pattern across the floor, a definite wow-factor is achieved. Consider creating similar effect by using patterned floor tiles in a range of styles, colours and looks.
