Choosing the perfect bathroom tiles

Bathroom tiles provide practical and aesthetic benefits for your bathroom floors and walls, ensuring a durable and easy-to-clean surface while offering waterproof protection against messes. Bathroom wall tiles size can significantly influence the appearance of your bathroom walls and floors, with smaller tiles forming more complex patterns, while larger tiles can create the illusion of increased space.

The selection of bathroom tiles should prioritise water-resistance and protection against water damage. 

Material options: ceramic, porcelain and natural stone


The foundation of your bathroom design begins with choosing the right material for your tiles. Some options to consider are:

  • Ceramic tiles: These are affordable and easier to cut and shape.

  • Porcelain tiles: These are denser and more difficult to cut but can offer increased durability and water resistance.

  • Natural stone tiles: These can add a unique and luxurious touch to your bathroom design.

Consider your budget, desired aesthetic and maintenance requirements when selecting the best tiles for your modern bathroom.

With its resilience and robustness, semi-polished porcelain outperforms other bathroom floor tiles and is ideal for high-traffic areas.

Colour palette: from classic to bold

The colour palette of your bathroom tiles can dramatically impact the overall atmosphere of your space. From timeless neutrals such as cream and grey to vibrant and striking shades like blue and green, there’s a broad spectrum of colours to choose from, including the classic black and white combination.

When choosing colours, keep your personal style in mind and match them with suitable tile materials to achieve a harmonious aesthetic. For instance, cream or beige tiles can provide a softer atmosphere than white, while grey tiles offer a versatile and modern style.

Tile shapes and patterns

Experimentation with tile shapes and patterns can result in a unique and stylish bathroom design. Common tile shapes and patterns include:

Interesting visual effects can be achieved with chevron-shaped tiles, and mosaic tiles bring added flexibility, character, and texture. Don’t be afraid to mix and match shapes and patterns to achieve a truly personalised bathroom design.

Large format tiles: enhancing your bathroom space


By creating a sense of openness and providing a smooth, uninterrupted floor, large format tiles can dramatically enhance your bathroom space. Fewer grout lines contribute to a tranquil and distinctive design, making your bathroom appear more spacious and seamless.

Consider incorporating large format tiles in your modern bathroom tiles design for a stylish and spacious appearance.

Slip-resistant flooring: safety and style

In a bathroom, safety is paramount. A secure and visually appealing space can be created by blending style with slip-resistant flooring options.

Large-format porcelain tiles, anti-slip luxury vinyl flooring, and non-slip ceramic or porcelain tiles (R10 or R11 rated) are all effective slip-resistant flooring options for bathrooms. These choices offer both practicality and aesthetic appeal, ensuring that your bathroom remains both safe and stylish.

Wood effect and stone effect tiles: a touch of nature

Adding a touch of nature to your bathroom can create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Wood effect tiles replicate the look of real wood flooring with intricate patterns, textures, and grain variations, while stone effect tiles, including the popular marble effect tiles, imitate the appearance and feel of natural stone.

Noted for their durability, resilience, and low maintenance, both wood effect and stone effect tiles are ideal choices for bathrooms. Explore the various wood effect and stone effect tile options to find the perfect natural touch for your bathroom.

Wet rooms and en suite bathrooms: tailoring tiles to your needs


Wet rooms and en suite bathrooms require tailored tile options to ensure the space is both functional and visually appealing. As these areas are often smaller and exposed to more moisture, selecting the right size and shape of tiles to maximize space and provide waterproof protection is crucial.

Owing to their water resistance, low maintenance, and durability, porcelain tiles are a favoured choice for wet rooms. Customise your wet room or en suite bathroom with tailored tile options that suit your specific needs.

Installation tips: achieving a professional finish


For both aesthetic and functional reasons, it’s crucial to achieve a professional finish for your bathroom tiles. Prior to tiling over existing tiles, it is recommended to score the tiles or apply a primer to ensure better adhesion and inspect for any cracks or underlying issues.

Common errors associated with bathroom tile installation can be avoided by:

  • Verifying adhesive suitability

  • Appropriately preparing the surface

  • Planning ahead to ensure adequate tile supply

  • Selecting the appropriate mortar

  • Confirming the security of existing tiles

Follow these expert installation tips for a professional and lasting bathroom tile finish.

Caring for your bathroom tiles: easy cleaning and maintenance

Proper care and cleaning are required to maintain the aesthetics and functionality of your bathroom tiles. Effective cleaning products for ceramic bathroom tiles include vinegar, baking soda, and specialised tile cleaners such as HG Tile Cleaner Shine Restorer.

Porcelain bathroom tiles should be cleaned on a bi-weekly basis with a mild detergent in warm water, while chemicals may be used to remove any stubborn stains. Regular cleaning and maintenance will ensure that your bathroom tiles remain as stunning and durable as the day they were installed.

In conclusion, the perfect bathroom tiles can transform your space into a stylish and functional sanctuary. From selecting the right material, colour, and shape to choosing tailored options for wet rooms and en suites, there are countless possibilities for creating your dream bathroom.
